Savings This Upcoming Season: Water Heaters

We have officially fallen into Fall and are well on our way towards Winter. It’s at this time of year when everyone is preparing for the cooler weather ahead and the increased energy bills it brings in with the chill. We want to help you get savvy with savings, both on your energy consumption and on your energy bill. There are several way to help you and your family save, and these suggestions are simple as well as affordable solutions.

  • Water Heater Blanket – This is simply a layer of fiberglass insulation that surrounds your water heater tank.  It’s available at home improvements stores for around $20-$30 and can save 5-10% on your water heating costs.  The blanket should more than pay for itself within one year’s use in most climates.
  • Insulate the Pipes - Insulating your hot water pipes reduces heat loss.  This can raise the water temperature about 2ºF–4ºF, allowing you to lower the temperature on the heater or use less hot water.  Pipe sleeves made with polyethylene or neoprene are available for about $1 per six-foot length or pre-cut for about $2.50 for 12-feet (four 3-foot pieces).  Fiberglass wraps are also available and are recommended for use with Gas water heaters.  Mostly target the pipes coming out of your water heater, but be sure to stay 6-inches clear of the flue on a gas water heater.  This will pay for itself within the year if not much sooner.
  • Turn Down the Water Heater – The easiest way to save is to lower the temperature of the water heater.  Each 10ºF reduction in water temperature can save you between 3%–5% in energy costs.  Most households usually only require the water heater to be set at 120ºF.  If you’re going away for more than three days, consider turning down your tank water heater to the lowest setting or turn off an electric water heater completely.

For a more long-term investment solution, you may want to look into upgrading your water to an Energy Star rated, propane tankless water heater.  While the upfront costs are typically 2-3 times that of a standard tank water heater, tankless unit last much longer and only heat the water on demand, saving up to 30% compared to an electric water heater.

More ways you save by choosing a propane tankless water heater:

  • Continuous hot water, at a consistent temperature. You can even use hot water for multiple tasks—such as showering, washing dishes or doing laundry—at the same time without worrying about running out.
  • Saves space in your home or business. You can store a tankless water heater inside or outside and it takes up much less room, you only need a wall to mount it on.
  • Longevity. Tankless water heaters have a typical life expectancy of up to 20 years—twice as long as a tank-style unit.
  • Reliable energy. When the electricity goes out, propane is in steady supply.
  • Rebates are available for Energy Star rated appliances.  Many state or regional propane agencies have rebates typically of around $200. Many tankless water heaters qualify for tax incentives and rebates as part of government energy conservation goals.

    I’ve got a really old water heater at my place. Fortunately I didn’t have any issues with it during the winter, but I want to make sure I take the next few months to do maintenance on it to keep it running smoothly for as long as possible. Do you have any advice for keeping water heaters running well during the other seasons, not just winter? I’d really appreciate any advice you have.

    post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to
    run your blog, however what if you added a post title
    that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Savings This Upcoming Season: Water Heaters | AmeriGas Propane Blog is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how
    they create article titles to grab viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about

    little livelier.
