Reduce Your Water Heating Costs.

The savings are no drop in the bucket.

Laundry and Dishes:

  • Wash laundry in cold water. Almost 90 percent of energy consumed by a washing machine goes to heating water.
  • Wash full loads of laundry. A partial load still requires the same amount of energy to fill up your machine with water, so opt for full loads when at all possible.
  • Wash full loads of dishes in your dishwasher, and use the energy saver selections on your dishwasher.

Showers:

  • Take shorter, cooler showers.
  • Install low-flow showerheads to reduce your hot water usage.

Maintenance:

  • Locate and fix water leaks.
  • If you have a swimming pool, install solar heaters to warm the water.
