Technology has played a significant role in the advancement of bathroom and kitchen products over the years. These products make your home more comfortable and can save you money on your utility bills. These are reasons to upgrade your bathroom and kitchen plumbing fixtures, regardless of whether your home is older or newer.

Technology increases the value of your home.

Is your home still equipped with its original water heater? If your home still has its original water heater and you plan to move, it may be worth upgrading to a more energy-efficient model? Manufacturers are now required to comply with new government guidelines. These guidelines are intended to make water heaters, electric, gas, or tankless, more efficient in energy consumption and water use. A water heater that is more affordable to run can bring in more buyers and increase your home’s value by a significant amount. read more



The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Appliance Energy Conservation Act is helping water heaters to get a makeover in 2015. This law, which took effect April 16, 2015, holds manufacturers accountable for meeting higher standards when producing residential water heaters. These changes, which the government does not govern, can benefit homeowners over time in terms of higher energy efficiency, lower energy bills, and longer appliance life.

What does this mean for consumers?

Consumers may experience growing pains during the transition from old water heaters to NAECA 2015-compliant heaters. Consumers will be most affected by a rise in the price of water heaters. Manufacturers may need to change how water heaters use electricity, so additional parts or steps may be required. Unfortunately, the consumer will have to pay this extra cost. What price rise can consumers be prepared to pay? This is yet to be determined. It is unlikely, but it would significantly increase, and the added cost may slightly miff some consumers. read more
