Hot Water Heater Thermostat


Did you know that by adjusting the thermostat on your hot water heater you could easily save over $15 - $30 per year in energy costs?

The optimal temperature that your water heater should be set at is 120 degrees. Many households unknowingly have their's set closer to 140 degrees or higher.

In the Northern Kentucky area it is estimated that by turning down the thermostat just 10 degrees can cut 5% off of your monthly energy bill. That can be 5% for every 10 degree reduction.
