If You Do One Thing Today…Water Heaters

If you do one thing today…

Check the temperature on your water heater.  Make sure it’s turned down to 120 degrees Fahrenheit from the standard 140 degrees.  If you think your family will protest or you are worried that there won’t be enough hot water, try turning it down a few degrees at a time until you find just the right spot!
Doing this will save you 10% of the energy you’d normally use to run the water heater.  That’s savings in your pocket…and in our natural resources!
