Allow us to impart some water heating tips to save money in energy costs. As a leading Connecticut heating and cooling company, we install new water heaters, and maintain and repair older boilers in our Connecticut service area. As a locally owned and operated HVAC company, we are proud that our products and services encourage energy efficiency. Maintaining your water heating equipment will not only prolong the life of your appliance, it will improve efficiency. We do everything we can to save you money! Below are some water heating tips.
1.) Install aerating, low flow faucets and shower heads.
2.) Repair leaky faucets promptly: a leaky faucet can waste gallons of water.
3.) Insulate the first 6 feet of hot and cold water pipes connected to the hot water heater.
4.) Drain a quart of water tank every 3 months to remove sediment that impedes heat transfer and lowers the efficiency of your heater. Follow the manufacturers directions.
5.) Although most water heaters last 10 to 15 years its best to start shopping now if yours is over 7 years old. Doing some research before your fails will enable you to select one more appropriate for your needs.
