Water heating is the second largest energy consumer in your home, accounting for about 22% of your energy costs.

There are few developed countries in the world that use more energy per capita than canada.  If Canadians were to develope more energy efficient home and lifestyles, we would greatly reduce our energy consumption as a nation. Most hot water heaters made over 7 years ago are likely to consume a LOT more energy than newer advanced models.  Even though most hot water heaters will last for about a decade, if your heater is over 7 years old, you may want to consider replacing it with a new energy efficient model.  By making a few small changes to your water heating system and to your water consumption behaviour, you can see a big energy savings benefit.  Not only will you be doing your part to save the planet, you’ll also be bringing extra savings to your family pocketbook as well.

Save Money on Your Hot Water Bill: Flush Your Hot Water Tank

Hot water tanks are one of the costlier items of the home. They are on 24-hours per day providing a ready supply of hot water for you and your family. Insulating an older tank with a thermal jacket can reduce this cost but there are other more direct measures that the average homeowner can do for greater cost savings.

Softer Hot Water for Cleaner Hair When Showering

In the absence of the sludge and gunk, your water heater will perform more efficiently. Your water will taste better (if you use water from the hot tap to fill your tea kettle,) and your dishes will rinse cleaner. You will likely notice this too when you bathe or shower. Washing your hair will be a surprise as you may find that you won’t need to use conditioner so often. The water won’t be so hard. It was the lime, calcium and metallic elements dissolved in the hot water that was making your hair feel unclean and ’stiff’ even after showering. One should notice a reduced electric bill as well because the heating element won’t have to work so hard now to heat the water.
