Hudson Florida, (8/18/2010) – Meares Plumbing is looking for the oldest working water heater in the Pasco County area and we will give its owner a brand new water heater free as part of an effort to highlight the potential for energy savings from new water heating equipment.
“We felt this contest was a good way to draw attention to the potential to save a lot of money by upgrading an old water heating system” said Tony Valle from Meares Plumbing. “There are some very old water heaters around town and homeowners are wasting a lot of money by continuing to operate them”
According to Valle, any water heater more than 10 years old is a ripe candidate for replacement, especially if the efficiency was 80% or less when new. Valle pointed out the average life expectancy of your typical water heater is about 7-10 years old according to Appliance Magazine. As mechanical equipment ages, its performance degrades and becomes less efficient.
Homeowners who believe they might have the oldest water heater in the County are encouraged to complete the Meares Plumbing online entry form found on their website at www.mearesplumbing.com or send an email inquiry to [email protected] You can also fill out an entry form in person at the 24th Annual Pasco Economic Development Councils trade show located at Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel Florida September 8th 2010.
