1. Conserve The Hot Water
While bathing, use little quantity of hot water. This way, two persons can manage to bath in the quantity of water that was used for one person. When it comes to water, reducing the wastage is saving.
2. Don’t Keep Switching ‘On’ The Heater
Hot water heating gets activated the moment you turn on the tap. Many people tend to put on the water heater even when they need just a mug full of hot water. This makes the heater consume a lot of energy, bumping up the electricity bill.
3. Turn Down The Heat Setting
Keep the temperature setting of the heater at about 120 degrees to save energy. This also prevents the sediments deposits.
4. Fixing The Leaks
If your water heater is leaking, then make sure you are getting it fixed by the professional. A leaking water heater may consume more electricity to make up for the lost heated water.
The heater should be properly insulated. This prevents the loss of heat and keeps the water warm for longer duration of time.
Make sure that you are regularly flushing the tank to eliminate the sediment deposit around the element. This reduces the pressure from the element and it heats up the water in less time.
7. Upgrade To Newer Models
New age water heaters are more energy efficient and they consume a lot less electricity to heat up the water as compared to the older models. They are also energy certified and have settings that can be altered to get the desired temperature of water. The models also have timer settings that allow you to switch them ‘on’ and off according to the desired time and this way you don’t have to worry about them running ‘on’ all the time.
Always make sure that you are getting the water heater installed by the professionals. It is recommended that you get the heaters serviced once in every three months by the experts to ensure proper performance. Many heaters come with warranties that can be availed on time and you have to ensure that professional care has been taken while servicing them.
