Water Heater Efficiency Tips

Did you know that water heating accounts for 14% to 25% of your energy costs? That could be up to $300 per year! Here are a few tips to help you trim the hot water costs.

Wrap your Water Heater- Wrapping your water heater in a blanket will help it stay warm and keep your water warm. A simple fiberglass blanket can actually help you cut heat loss by 40% and help you save up to 10% on your water-heating bill. These blankets are inexpensive but you should always check with your manufacturer before wrapping your water heater up.

Go with The Flow – Installing low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators can cut hot water usage by 60%, saving you tons of money. These low-price fixes can make your home run as efficient as possible.

Chill Out– Your water heater can fully function with its temperature at 140 degrees. Most water heaters come from the factor turned to the highest temperature. Turning it down 10 degrees can help save you 5% on your next bill.
