A New Energy Saving Natural Gas Product from GE
When we think of General Electric we think of the kind of energy that made Thomas Edison famous. After all, the iconic company has been providing electrical appliances to the public for generations - as its internationally recognized household name proclaims. But the industry leader for consumer electrical products for the home is proud to announce a new natural gas water heater solution. That's right - General Electric is getting on the natural gas bandwagon.
GE was one of the key participants in the criteria-development process for a new Department of Energy (DOE) initiative, and the company urged DOE to adopt aggressive standards for high-efficiency water heaters. One reason that Energy Star rated water heaters are so significant in terms of saving energy is that home water heating is the second biggest culprit - right behind heating and air conditioning - when it comes to consuming residential energy and increasing the household carbon footprint.
Despite the fact that a home may be constructed in an energy-efficient manner, for example, it may still waste a significant amount of energy through the simple and everyday process of heating water for use in showers, dishwashers, and kitchen and bathroom sinks.
But tankless natural gas water heaters like the one now in production at GE give you water when you turn on the hot water tap. As soon as you turn it off, however, the heating element stops working. That way you do not heat water that is not being used and is only sitting around stored in a water heater tank. You enjoy the benefit of a reliably continuous supply of hot water, in other words, without the detrimental impact of unnecessary energy usage. That lowers your monthly bills while also shrinking your family's carbon footprint.
The GE Tankless Gas Water Heater is offered in two sizes (7.5-gallon-per-minute flow and 9.4-gallon-per-minute flow) for both indoor and outdoor applications. Both operate on affordable natural gas, which ensures that households save even more money and energy in both the near term and the sustainable future.
