Water heater efficiency tips

Here are some easy ways to keep your energy dollars from going down the drain:

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, setting your water heater temperature too high can waste $36 to $61 a year in standby heat losses. The magic 120 number also helps reduce mineral buildup in tanks and pipes. This temperature is safer for your family, too, preventing scalding or burning accidents. Simply unscrew the plate on your water heater that covers the thermostat and manually adjust the setting.

Hot water is money, and every drop you don’t use is money saved. Shorter showers mean less work for your water heater and more hot water for the next person who needs it.

Using cold water can cut a load’s energy use by more than half. Still concerned about washing on the cold setting? Newer detergents contain enzymes that work just as well in cold water. Gentler on your clothes, cold water helps protect them from fading, bleeding and shrinking.

Turn off your water heater when no one will be home for an extended period, like a vacation. You can simply flip its switch in the breaker box. This gives your unit and your hot water costs a break.

When using less water, you’re using less hot water, too. Achieve water savings of 25 to 60 percent by installing low-flow fixtures.

This easy improvement can help save on water heating costs and raise your water temperature 2 to 4 degrees F. You won’t be waiting as long for hot water when you turn on the faucet, either.

Select one that is ENERGY STAR® rated to get the lowest operating cost. Some models can save a household of four around $330 per year in energy costs!
