Avoid Heat Loss

Your storage water heater stores hot water in its tank for instant use. But, when this water does not get used, it starts to cool down. When this happens, your water heater stands to lose heat which ends up taking a lot of energy and adding numbers to your bills. To help avoid this from occurring, you can invest in an insulation sleeve. If your water heater remains heated, it takes up much less energy. Get an A. O. Smith electric water heater for home and get express heating in minimal time.


Minimize Hot Water Usage

This is a no-brainer and a key to saving on energy bills. There are a number of measures you can take to decrease hot water consumption for lower energy bills. Take a shorter hot shower if you can and turn the heater off shortly before you finish bathing. Use cold water to do your laundry instead of using hot water for the same during this time. If you use hot water to wash your dishes, you can alternate it and wash it with cold water every other day.


Upgrade Your Water Heater
