SPECIAL ARTICLE
 
Are You NAECA Ready?

On April 16, 2015, there will be significant changes to water heater energy factor (EF) requirements as the result of updates to the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA). These new requirements call for higher EF ratings on virtually all residential gas, electric, and oil water heaters, completely altering the water heater landscape. NAECA also affects some light-duty commercial water heaters.

How the New Rules Affect You

The new rules will help your customers reduce energy usage and save money all year long. How will professional installers be affected? Here are some important ways:

Many of the water heaters you’ve installed in the past will now be larger in size and weight, affecting storage, transportation, specifications, and installation.
  New technologies may require you and your employees to participate in manufacturer- or wholesaler-sponsored training.
  When customers can’t replace existing water heaters with a similar model, you’ll need to provide guidance on water heater replacement options.
  Some NAECA product options may require you to incorporate electrical feed, venting, or condensate disposal into installations where they weren’t needed before.

Bradford White Is NAECA Ready & Committed to Helping You

Bradford White is committed to helping all of its customers make the transition to the new NAECA standards. As new information becomes available, Bradford White will update its website and send the information to customers. In addition, the company’s plant expansion is nearly complete, which will give Bradford White the capability and flexibility to meet the demand for an even wider variety of 2015-compliant products.
