New Water Heater Regulations

Just a heads up!  Now would be a good time to have your water heater inspected by a licensed plumber and checked for any problems.  If it is an older heater, due possibly to fail within a short period of time, it might be a good move to replace it now and save yourself the higher cost of the new energy efficient appliances to be required after April 16, 2015.  It is still possible to replace a heater after that date with an older model as long as the heater was manufactured prior to April 16, 2015.  There are reports that some plumbing supply companies have stockpiled older less expensive heaters but this supply will most likely last only a few months.
