Tip #6 –To save on electricity, adjust the temperature of your hot water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to help slow the mineral build-up. Then, insulate the hot water heater to help reduce its energy usage by about 10-15%.
Tip #7 – Save the hot water for yourself. Do not wash laundry on hot or warm. Choose the cold cycle so that your hot water heater isn’t trying to supply your washer with hot water. Also, if you are a creature of habit and take showers around the same time each day, put your hot water heater on a timer. Installing a timer to turn off your heater during the times you do not need hot water will help conserve energy.
