Heating water in a home amounts to almost twenty-five percent of the total energy bills. Due to this water heater that holds less than fifty-six gallons of water require a four percent efficiency boost in power. However, water heaters that keep more than the fifty-six gallons are more economical in the sense that they cut your energy bills by twenty-six percent depending on the energy technology used in the heater.
