Dress Up Your Hot Water Heater – Save Money

Everyone is always looking for ways to save their hard earned dollars, without too much sacrifice, but it also helps to remember that it is not “how much you have, but rather “how you manage what you have”.

If you spend your money wisely, a little can go a long way, but then again some folks pinch pennies and waste dollars.  Don’t you agree?

Today I will post few very helpful tips from Ecomii.com, about some simple ways to save money on water heating in your home.

Here is my hot water heater, all bundled up in an insulating jacket, but my hot water pipe still needs to be insulated.  I already bought the foam sleeves ( only $1.18 each at Lowe’s), and will definitely install them before your read this post.

I encourage you to do the same, so you can enjoy the savings of heating your water.

 

Today’s Tip: Insulate Your Water Pipes

What?
Save money,

water,

and energy,

by insulating your pipes, and water heater.

How?
Dress your hot water pipes in foam sleeves,

and your water heater in a nice insulating jacket.

Why?
Insulating your water heater alone can reduce your utility bills by 4-9%.

Plus, insulation shortens your wait for hot water each morning.

Did You Know?
Water heating can account for a whopping 14-25% of the energy consumed in your home.

 

Here you have it!

All you have to do now is to make that trip to your favorite home improvement store, and purchase the appropriate “wardrobe” for your water heater and pipes.  You will be laughing all the way to the bank with your big savings.

Better yet, include it on your Hanukkah or Christmas list, and get it as a very smart gift, one that will continue giving.
