These days, saving money is more important than ever. By making just a few small adjustments to your water heater and how you use it, you can slash energy costs! Follow these money-saving water heating tips, courtesy of the US Department of Energy:
1. Take shorter showers
Save baths for special occasions, instead opting for the shower. Keep in mind that long showers can be just as wasteful as filling a large tub. Save even more energy by turning off the water while lathering up!
2. Adjust your water heater’s temperature
Most water heaters are automatically set to a scalding 140 degrees. Not only can this be dangerous, but it’s also a waste of energy. Reducing the temperature by just 10 degrees can help you save up to 5 percent on water heating costs.
3. Fix leaks as soon as possible
Even tiny leaks add up. Save money and help conserve water by having leaks fixed immediately. Suspect you have a leak, but not sure where? Allow Service Plus Heating, Cooling & Plumbing’s plumbing specialists to pinpoint its location. We won’t just find it, we’ll fix it!
