We’re all looking for ways to save money, so at Bienvenu Brothers, we’ve brought you top five top tips on how to save money when it comes to your water heater. As well as providing you with top tips on how to save money, we can also help you with any maintenance, or installations if you experience any issues with your water heater.
1. Take showers instead of baths
Baths are notorious for using a lot of water, especially if you have a large or jetted bathtub. Swap your daily baths for showers and you will notice that you use less water. Sometimes nothing beats a bath, so if you want to take one, consider reducing baths to once a week. Remember that the shorter the shower, the more money you will save!
2. Turn off the water
Many of us are guilty of leaving the water to run when we brush our teeth or carry out other ablutions, or even when doing the dishes. Those extra minutes of running water can add up in no time, so turn off that faucet when not using water!
3. Insulate your hot-water tank and pipes
Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and insulate your tank. This can save lots of money and preserves heat. You should also look into insulating the first few feet of the hot and cold water pipes connected to your water heater – it’ll really help.
4. Install a timer
Installing a timer means that your electric water heater can be set to turn off at night or times when you’re not home.
5. Upgrade your water heater
Sometimes the best thing to do is to replace your old existing water heater if it isn’t performing the way it should. A modern water heater can in fact save you $$’s.
