Q: Is it true there are new regulations for water heaters this year?

A: Yes. Starting in April, new residential gas, oil and electric water heaters will need to meet much higher federal efficiency standards. That’s not a bad thing, but to meet these standards, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that the average price for a new water heater will increase by at least $100.
