Make Your Water Heater More Efficient—Here’s How

Make Your Water Heater More Efficient—Here’s How

Your hot water heater accounts for approximately 14% of your yearly household energy bills. These are pretty large figures, but you don’t necessarily need to pay that much to enjoy a continuous hot water supply.

Besides getting regular water heater services from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, there are other steps you can take to boost the efficiency of your unit. We share some smart tips.

Insulate Your Water Heater

A simple and inexpensive way to improve the performance of your water heater is to insulate the tank and pipes. According to experts, this simple tuneup can cut your heating costs by up to 9% and reduce standby heating losses by up to 45%. Interestingly, most water heaters fit well with pre-cut insulation materials, which are readily available in hardware stores. We can help you choose and set up the insulation for you during water heater installation.

Handle Repairs on Time

Leaky or damaged water heaters can cost you a fortune on energy bills. Schedule professional water heater repair in Corona, CA, on time to have your water heater checked for leaks and other issues. Faulty water heaters run inefficiently and take longer to heat the water to your desired temperature, which translates to an increase in utility costs.

Switch to a Tankless Water Heater

A tankless water heater can cut your energy bills by up to 14%. This energy-efficient system provides a limitless supply of hot water and only heats water when you need it. On the other hand, traditional tank-type heaters keep your stored water warm even when you don’t use it, thus wasting energy.

After serving you for several years, your water heater may develop issues that could increase your utility bills, adding to your financial burden. When your unit has become inefficient, contact the experts at A.M. Plumbing & rooter for water heater replacement or repair. We’ll assess the condition of your water heater and recommend the best solution that ensures long-term energy and cost savings. Contact us today to book an appointment.
