Want to save money on your energy bill but installing
a solar water heater is out of the question?
If you have an electric water heater you can install a
timer that will reduce your monthly energy costs without hurting your wallet. According to the U.S. Department of Energy,
a timer can be purchased for as little as $60 (plus installation) and can save you up to an additional 12% of energy just
by having your water heater turned off at night when you're not using it. Most timers have multiple settings so that you can
run the water heater at different points throughout the day such as running it in the morning to take a shower, and at night
to do laundry and dishes.
