Quick Tips for Saving Energy with Your Water Heater

Water drops

Water heaters use large amounts of energy—up to 20 percent of the average U.S. household’s total water consumption. That’s why, if you’re looking to make a dent in your home energy bill, your water heater is a good place to start.

Many water heaters are set to their maximum temperature limit. Lowering the temperature can save you three to five percent on your energy bill for every 10 degrees you turn it down. Just be sure to keep it above 120 degrees to avoid bacteria growth. Another good strategy is to regularly flush sediment out of your water heater. Sediment buildup reduces the storage capacity of your tank, wasting energy in the process.
