6 Tips for Reducing Hot Water Electricity Consumption

Your water heater ensures that you and your family always have hot water at the taps. That’s vital for everything from taking a shower in the morning before work to washing up after supper. However, it comes at a cost. The more your water heater works, the higher your electric bill is. Here are six tips for reducing how water electricity consumption to save some money. 1. Set a Lower Temp One way to reduce the amount of electricity your water heater consumes is to set it to a lower temperature. However, you need to keep it within the safe range defined by the UK’s Consumer Product Safety Commission. A lower, yet safe, temperature would be around 49 degrees C. This helps reduce the number of times your heater turns on to keep water at a specific temperature. 2. Use Less Hot Water Another way to reduce electricity related costs is to use less hot water in the first place. Cut your showers shorter, run the dishwasher only when necessary and the like. Wash your hands with cold water. 3. Cut Out Baths If you take baths regularly, you’re driving up your electric bill. It takes a great deal more water to fill up a tub than it does to wet you in the shower. All that hot water must be replaced, and that requires electricity. Cut out baths and switch to showers – you might be surprised at how much money this can save you over time. 4. Wash Clothes in Cold Water Washing clothes is important, but many consumers use hot water for this. While hot water can sometimes be necessary, cold water usually does just as well, and you’re not draining the water heater to clean your clothing. Unless you’re washing clothes with grease or oil stains, or something that needs to be sanitised, then cold water is more than sufficient. 5. Maximise Dishwasher Efficiency Dishwashers can be very convenient. They save time and effort, and are actually a bit better on your water usage than washing dishes by hand (modern models only). However, if you’re not using this appliance correctly, it may be costing you a lot of money per year. Run only full loads, and make sure that you load the trays correctly to maximise cleaning power. Never run partial loads, as this is just a waste of hot water, electricity and money. 6. Invest in a More Efficient Water Heater Finally, you may find that your water heater is old and outdated. If that’s the case, then it likely does not have enough insulation to maintain water at your desired temperature for very long. Investing in a more efficient unvented water cylinder can be a very smart move. Interested in learning more about your options when it comes to modern water heaters? Get in touch with us at EasyFlow.

5 Reasons You Need to Invest in Annual Water Heater Maintenance Services

5 Tips to Help with Annual Water Heater Maintenance It might not seem like it, but your water heater requires regular maintenance just like any other home appliance. All too often, homeowner neglect this need, forgetting that their ability to enjoy hot water on demand requires a reliable water heater. Not sure what sort of maintenance your water heater needs? Here’s a quick guide to help. Check the Thermostat The thermostat is the key to maintaining the right temperature within your water cylinder. If the thermostat is too low, the water will not be the right temperature at the taps. If it is too high, it could pose a safety hazard. In many cases, you can “set it and forget it”. Your thermostat should not change temperature on its own. Still, it’s helpful to check it periodically to make sure it hasn’t been jostled. Check for Leaks An annual leak inspection is a vital part of ensuring that your water heater stays in top condition. You’ll want to check for leaks on the body of the cylinder, at the bottom of the cylinder, at the pressure relief valve near the top, and at the pipes leading into and out of the cylinder, as well. Any signs of a leak will require the assistance of a professional. Regular Flushes One of the more important elements of water heater maintenance is to have it regularly flushed out. Minerals and sediment in the water that enters the cylinder will build up at the bottom of the tank. If left untreated, this can cause serious problems, including leaks in the tank, and blockage of the water lines. Your tank should be flushed annually to remove sediment. Pressure Relief Valve Inspection The pressure relief valve is located near the top of the water heater, and is designed to vent excess pressure if a dangerous situation were to develop. However, these valves can fail over time. This could mean a potential leak, or it could mean that the valve will fail to open and vent excess pressure, leading to a very serious issue. The pressure relief valve should be inspected annually, and replaced if necessary. If you own an unvented water cylinder, annual maintenance is also necessary for your homeowner’s insurance. Your insurer will require that you have the cylinder inspected annually by a plumber certified in unvented maintenance and installation. Going it alone in terms of water heater maintenance is never a good idea. We can help. Call EasyFlow today at 0161 941 5571 to learn more about our maintenance plans, and how they can benefit you.
