Save Money with Your Water Heater
There's nothing like a hot shower to wash away the worries of the day. And despite the proliferation of low-temperature detergents, hot or warm water really does clean clothes better!
But you can have too much of a good thing. That storage tank in your basement... the good old water heater... can be a real energy glutton. Lowering the temperature even a little can bring you big energy savings... from 3% to 5% for every 10 degrees!
Each type of water heater has a different adjustment method. The descriptions below will apply to most heaters. If your water heater is significantly different from the ones depicted here, we suggest you obtain a manual from the manufacturer.
First things first... test your water temperature. You don't need a special thermometer for this... a cooking thermometer will work just fine! The gauge on the one shown at left starts at 130 degrees.
Put the thermometer in a deep glass (keep the gauge dry) and fill it with hot water direct from the tap. Be sure to run the water till it is fully hot.
