About Water Heaters

In a typical Northeast Georgia home, water heating is one of the largest components of your electric bill, second only to heating and cooling costs. In fact, water heating can account for 19% of your total power bill. Fortunately, there are more energy efficient options for electric water heating now than ever before. And, ENERGY STAR qualified heat pump water heaters can save the average household almost $300 per year on its electric bills compared to a standard electric water heater. 

Jackson EMC also offers a variety of programs and services that can lower the cost of investment in a new, efficient water heater.
