Water Heating


Water heating accounts for approximately 12% of your homes energy consumption. Here are some steps to take to reduce your water heating bills:

  • Install an ENERGY STAR labeled water heater. See our Rebate Incentive Program for rebates available for the installation of a new water heater.


  • Lower the thermostat on the water heater to 120 degrees F.


  • Insulate the water heater with an insulation blanket.


  • Install low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators.


  • Wash laundry in cold water if possible.
