Did you know…
Water heating is the third largest energy expense in your home and typically accounts for about 25% of your electricity bill.
If this sounds about right to you then ‘hot water savings’ are probably a phrase your keen to hear more about.
If your current hot water system you have isn’t performing like it used to, then it’s probably also running inefficiently and could be costing you a lot more than you think. Although most hot water systems last 10 – 15 years, it’s best to start shopping for a new one if yours is more than 7 years old.
And if you have a large family or live in a household with more than four people, chances are your energy bills are stacking up big time.
So what are the ways to reduce your hot water costs?
Use less hot water
You could try to convince your whole family to start taking shorter showers, but trying to convince teenagers to care about your hot water costs is like trying convince them to spend less time on their phone… not looking likely to happen!
Buy a new, energy efficient hot water system
While it may cost more initially than a standard system, the energy savings will continue during the lifetime of the appliance. If your current hot water system is electric, consider switching to a heat pump as it can be installed in the same location, and can save you up to 75% in energy costs.
What are heat pumps?
Heat pumps use innovative technology to draw natural heat from the surrounding air and turn it into energy to heat your water up to 4 times more efficiently.
And whilst they cost a little bit more up front, the great news is – the more you use it, the larger the savings are going to be for your family and the sooner you are going to see the return on your investment from your hot water savings.
