Water Heater Audits For California Residents
“In a typical home, water heating is the second biggest energy user after space heating. Water heating can account for up to 20% of your utility costs. Reducing your water heating costs is possible in many ways…from something as simple as wrapping your tank in a water heater blanket to installing solar or instantaneous hot water systems.”
Water Heating Tips
- Wrap your California hot water tank in a thermal blanket to reduce heat loss. Insulate the hot water pipes as much as possible to minimize radiation heat loss.
- Repair leaky faucets promptly; a leaky faucet wastes gallons of water in a short period.
- Install nonaerating low-flow faucets and showerheads.
- Lower the thermostat on your water heater; water heaters sometimes come from the factory with high temperature settings, but a setting of 115°F provides comfortable hot water for most uses.
- If you heat with electricity, consider installing a solar water heater. The solar units are environmentally friendly and can now be installed on your roof to blend with the architecture of your house.
- Take more showers than baths. Bathing uses the most hot water in the average household. You use 15 to 25 gallons of hot water for a bath, but less than 10 gallons during a 5-minute shower.
