Heating water for use in your home is generally a big home expense, typically the second largest energy expense in the dwelling. About 20 percent of your utility bill is used by your water heater. With a few simple tips and some long-range planning, you can save big on water heating in your home.
While the short-term solutions listed above will save you some money, there are also some long-term strategies you can effectively use to save energy and money. In the long run, these savings can add up to significant amounts of money. In some cases, there are tax incentives for installing more efficient water heating systems.
For long-term water heating savings, consider buying a more efficient, Energy Star-rated water heater or upgrade to a tankless unit.
