There’s nothing quite like a warm shower to relax after a long day. But if your water heating bills are sky high, then you’re probably anything but relaxed. Fortunately for homeowners looking to pinch pennies, there are easy ways you can reduce your water heating bills. Learn five tips below.
1. Change Your Habits
Think about your grooming routine. Do you turn on the shower and wait a few minutes before getting in? Do you take lots of baths in a big Jacuzzi tub? Do you leave the water running while brushing your teeth? If so, your grooming habits may be to blame for high water heating bills. If you’re guilty of any of the above, try making small changes to your normal routine. Don’t let the shower run before getting in, swap baths for short showers and turn off the water when brushing your teeth. When the next water-heating bill comes, you should notice the savings!
2. Lower the Temperature of Your Water Heater
For every 10 degrees you lower the temperature on your water heater, you can save between three and five percent on your water heating costs! Start by lowering the temperature on your water heater to 120 degree Fahrenheit.
3. Use Cold Water When Washing Clothes
Using cold water for your laundry is an easy way to save on your water-heating bill. While cold water won’t be fit for all loads, always use cold water on the rinse cycle and see how much you can save!
4. Install a Timer
A timer will turn off the electrical water heater when it’s not being used, such as at night and when everyone is at work or school during the day, which will help to save you money on your monthly water heating bill.
5. Invest in a New Water Heater
Conventional storage water heaters are just one option for homeowners. If your water heating bills are high, consider investing in a more efficient option that may work better for your home and lifestyle.
