As part of the National Appliance and Energy Conservation Act (NAECA), new energy codes from the Department of Energy mandate that residential water heaters manufactured as of April 16, 2015 improve R-values of the insulation around the tanks. This mandate will result in new water heaters being taller and wider than older models. McCoy’s 30-, 40-, and 50-gallon model water heaters are affected by these changes.
With diameters and heights of many water heaters increasing up to 15%, installation issues may occur when replacing an older model. If your water heater is in a confined space or in a closet, the new model of the same gallon capacity may not fit within that same space.
BE SURE TO MEASURE YOUR SPACE AND DOOR OPENING BEFORE BUYING A NEW WATER HEATER.
