Take a look at your water heater’s temperature setting. It’s probably automatically set to 140 degrees. This is the temperature that water heaters are generally set at when installed in a home. You can save energy by lowering the water heater default temperature to as low as 120 degrees. It’s a small difference that’s virtually unnoticeable, but it’ll reduce water heating costs by up to 10 percent per year. That’s a big difference that’ll have you recouping dollars off your utility bills.
