The water heater takes up the biggest part of the household’s budget in many homes. Hot water is used for various activities around the home, like cooking, showering, and washing utensils. JNR Plumbing, local experts in water heater repair in Greenwich, CT, shares some tips on how to improve water heater efficiency:

Insulate Water Pipes

Insulating your pipes after water heater installation is essential to reducing heat loss during winter. Pipe insulation has a wide variety of benefits regarding energy efficiency. Insulating pipes also helps prevent them from freezing and bursting during winter.

Lower Temperature

Water heaters are usually fixed with a temperature of 140 degrees. Reducing the temperature to about 120 degrees can go a long way in saving energy. If your water heater doesn’t show the actual temperature and shows hot or warm, set it to a warm setting.

Install a Tankless Unit

Investing in a tankless water heater can help you save on energy. Unlike traditional water heaters that need to be constantly flushed out to prevent the buildup of mineral sediment, you won’t have to worry about this issue with a tankless heater.

Invest in Efficient Faucets and Shower-Heads

Installing efficient plumbing fixtures in your home should be among the first things you should do to maximize energy efficiency.

Drain the Tank

Flushing out the water heater tank is another way that ensures efficient functioning. If your home has hard water, you will likely experience sediment buildup in your tank. Over time, this can also lead to corrosion and several other problems. To prevent this issue, draining the tank should be done regularly as part of professional water heater services.
