With temperatures dropping to as low as 18 °F in some areas of the state, Texans may well see a huge increase in energy bills once the winter season is over. According to CBS Local, owners of older houses and/or homes that employ older and less efficient heating equipment might even have larger bills to pay in February. However, most Texans would rather worry about staving off the cold before calculating their heating costs.
It can be said that the increase in utility bills is inevitable. Nonetheless, there are some ways for homeowners (especially those who have low-income jobs) to lighten the load. For instance, they can simply install tankless water heaters from Cypress, TX contractors, such as those offered by Capital Care Plumbing, to enjoy small energy savings that, given enough time, will grow into larger savings. These can prove useful when the next winter season comes. After all, water heating takes up about 30 percent of an average household’s energy bills, whether it has tankless heaters or not.
