Being smarter about water heating is better for your energy bill and the environment. Here are a few simple things you can do to conserve and heat water more efficiently.

Conserving water and upgrading your water heating system is a great way to save energy and money throughout your building:

  • Stop leaks. Repairing even small leaks saves gallons of water and dollars each month.
  • Install water-saving aerators, faucets, showerheads, low-flow spray valves, and urinals.
  • Set a maximum water temperature. Check your local codes for specific guidelines.
  • On heaters that are more than seven years old, install an insulation blanket. On both new and old heaters, insulate the first three feet of out pipe.
