December Reduce Your Use Prize
Water heaters are the second highest consumers of electricity in the home after heating and cooling systems and can account for as much as 12 percent of your utility bill. A conventional tank water heater operates by heating and maintaining a reserve of hot water in the tank for when you need it. This operation includes on/off cycling to maintain the water temperature in the tank. As the hot water sits in the tank, it loses heat, requiring the
water heater to switch on again to restore the water’s temperature. On/off cycling results in energy consumption even when the water heater is not in use.
Using a water heater timer can help reduce standby energy losses and reduce water heating costs annually. Water heater timers can help you set and control when your water heater starts producing hot water. The December Reduce Your Use prize is a water heater timer that allows you to set and program your water heater for greater control.
