Gas water heaters meeting ENERGY STAR 5.0 specification can save between $19 and $88 per year of average use, depending on the water heater type and capacity. If all gas water heaters sold in the U.S. met these criteria, the energy cost savings would grow to $28 billion per year, and 55 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented.
