On April 16, 2015, as a result of updates to the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA) there have been significant changes to all water heaters. The new requirements are higher energy factor ratings on all gas, electric, and oil water heaters. As a homeowner, what does this mean for you? Your new water, when you need to replace your existing one will be larger in height, width and energy star requirements. 
As of December 5, 2014 and effectively immediately with no transition period. The new Plumbing & Gas codes are out. What does this mean to you? What does this mean to us? With new changes happening, it is important as always to hire a licensed professional who knows and understands the code. For example, prior to December, 5 2014 the homeowner needed a complete hard wired combination smoke and carbon monoxide detector in the mechanical room. Now, only a battery operated one is required by code.
