Everything costs more today inflation has really slaughtered us and one thing that seems to be going up is the price of energy so I've asked my friend Bob Muller from personal plumbing to join me here on the program hey Bob how are you doing great job thanks for having me so I'm thinking of ways my listeners can save some money in the home is it on their air conditioning or their heating is it on their mortgage is it on eating you know less finer foods but let's talk about you know let's talk about the plumbing in the home OK think about what's going on and what costs money and when you think about it costs a fair amount of money to heat the water and since you're in the plumbing business and you installed water heaters I thought I'd ask you is there a way for people to save money and become more energy efficient with getting a new water heater the answer to that is absolutely like it on all of your products that you purchased so if it's regular just a basic regular water heater that's non energy efficient which doesn't have maybe the Energy Star label on it those appliances are known to be less efficient so they're not going to give you the type of savings that you would normally get from a more efficient but even those products are more efficient today than our older products from before so the short answer to that is yes you will get better energy efficiency on those products but you can get even better efficiency ratings on more advanced products like your Energy Star rated products which have usually condensing type systems like tankless water heater more of a direct vented type tank water heater there's more efficient ones that are out there the obviously cost a little bit more to purchase up front but the energy savings that you can get from them are tremendous the other side to that is because we do so much solar here and there is other uh water heaters out there on the market today called our heat pump technology water heaters that would be combined with your solar these are electric water heaters but they're a heat pump first so they will they will use your garages heat to be the first source of your of your water heating fortunate of it kind of like a refrigerator and then as it needs the energy it will suck the energy from the solar panels so you can have one of these type of water heaters installed and it would cost you absolutely nothing to run your water heater that is fantastic wow so to find out more contact Bob all of this contact information is in the description of this podcast thanks Bob appreciate your advice and your expertise on this.
