Water heaters are something every homeowner has but dreads dealing with. If your water heater goes, it isn’t fun to deal with. But by choosing Just Water Heater as your maintenance company, we can help educate you on how to tune up your water heater to make it work like brand new, so it can save you a good amount of money each month. Even if your current water heater is on the older side, there are some things you can do to make it function and run like a newer one.
4 tips for tuning up your water heater
1. Use a timer
One of the best ways to tune up your water heater to make it run more efficiently is to put it on a time at night, when you’re gone for a vacation, or during peak times. Meaning it won’t be running during those time and it’ll save you some major coin while it doesn’t need to be running. This will make your water heater run much better and it’ll last you a lot longer.
2. Lower your thermostat
Most water heaters arrive and are set up at 140 degrees Fahrenheit which most people typically leave it because that’s what they think is best. But you can actually lower your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. You won’t even notice a difference, but this small change will save you so much money each month, while also allowing your water heater to run that much better.
3. Increase insulation
If you feel like you are spending an arm and a leg on your water heater bill, you may want to increase the insulation around your heater and the pipes. This will help it to hold in the air better, and your water heater won’t have to work as hard.
4. Watch your usage
While this is pretty obvious to most people, we’re still going to include it. You should be turning off lights when you aren’t using them, and one of the best things you can do to increase the efficiency of your water heater is to take shorter showers. Another tip is to watch your washing machine and dishwater – your clothes and dishes don’t HAVE to be washed in scorching hot water. Just be mindful of these things and your water heater will thank you (and so will your pockets).
