Electricity and Gas for the World!

Second only to home heating, water heaters use the most energy in the house.  You can actually make quite a few small changes to save with your IDT Energy bill or your energy bill from another company and maximize your savings.

Make sure to insulate your hot water pipes and to wrap your electric water heater with a blanket (made for this purpose).  This blanket helps to reduce heat loss and to save you money.  Make sure that all faucets work well and are not leaking and install aerators on the kitchen faucets.

While you may enjoy soaking in a hot bath, this activity uses about 75 liters of hot water.  Taking a shower that has an efficient showerhead actually uses only half of this amount.
