Ways to Make Common Water Heaters in Cypress, TX More Energy Efficient

"Water heaters from Cypress, TX are one of the most utilized appliances in the home for showering, laundry and more. Water heaters account for 14% to 18% of energy costs in a home, making them the second largest energy user in houses—next to HVAC systems. Fortunately, there are ways by which homeowners can lower water heating costs while conserving energy. Since people love hot baths, which lead to high energy consumption, an article written by Lynn Truong for Wise Bread suggests that homeowners should take faster showers and use mild, lukewarm water for baths. The article also recommends installing low-flow shower heads to reduce hot water consumption by 15% to 60%. Truong further states, “Also consider using cold water to wash your clothes. About 90% of the energy use in a clothes washer goes to water heating. Cold water washing also helps clothes last longer!”"
