Some people want to save energy to save more money on their bills, while others are interested in energy-saving appliances because of their passion for a healthier environment. Regardless of the reason, making your water heater more efficient can be extremely beneficial in many ways. 

While you can count on a professional plumber in Lake Charles, LA from AllStar Plumbing, you can also take time to learn about how you can save more energy with your water heater. Here are the best no-nonsense energy-saving tips:

1.  Be Aware of the Sediment Level

Hard water is one of the most common plumbing issues in American households. Hard water comes with minerals that crystalize and gather near the bottom of the water heater. These minerals then turn into sediment as the water heats. Make sure you are attentive and get professional water heater repair in Lake Charles, LA as often as needed.

2.  Limit Your Use of Hot Water

Using less hot water in your home can do wonders for the water heater. Try considering taking shorter showers and baths, and using cold or lukewarm water in situations where you would usually use hot water. Adjust the settings on your washing machine, dishwasher, and other appliances. If you find that there’s no difference, look into a professional water heater replacement.

3.  Keep Your Water Tank and Pipes Insulated

Your water heater may lose a good bit of energy and heat during its lifetime. Most of the heat and energy get lost through the tank and piping. You can ask your trusted plumber to insulate these components during water heater maintenance so you can save as much as you can on energy.

4.  Talk to a Qualified Professional for Appropriate Options

It’s always a good idea to get a professional opinion from a licensed expert before your water heater installation. Doing this will ensure everything is done the right way.

Apart from top-notch services, Allstar Plumbing is more than happy to provide you with more energy-saving tips for your tankless water heater. Get in touch with us to schedule an appointment.
