Water heating accounts for a large part of your Hagerstown, Maryland, home’s energy bill, especially with the area’s cold winter weather. Fortunately, you can lower your expenses by conserving energy and water. Taking shorter showers, using low-flow fixtures, and upgrading your water heater can help you save hot water in your Hagerstown, MD home.

Taking Shorter Showers

Warm baths and long, hot showers are nice luxuries, but they use a lot more water than a shower that only lasts a few minutes. A shorter shower saves time too, so you can sleep for a few extra minutes in the morning or relax for a little while longer at night.

Using Low-Flow Fixtures

You can save hot water by upgrading your shower heads and faucets to low-flow models. Laminar flow shower heads create streams of water that feel like rain, and they have better temperature control than other designs. Faucet and shower head aerators mix water with air, so homeowners can get good water pressure without using lots of water.

Upgrading Your Water Heater

A new water heater is a big investment, but it will eventually pay for itself through energy savings. Conventional storage water heaters have a storage tank for hot water. Since these models are always working, they use more energy. Upgrading to a newer, more efficient model can help you save in the long run. Tankless or on-demand water heaters are more expensive at first, but they can lower your utility bills even more than a new conventional water heater. They use heating elements to provide hot water quickly without a storage tank. These models are also much smaller than other types of water heaters.

You can have a professional add even more energy-saving features to your water heater, such as insulation or a timer that shuts off the unit when you sleep.

Griffith Energy Services can help you install, maintain, and repair a variety of water heaters, along with heaters and air conditioners. Call us anytime at 888-474-3391 for more information about saving hot water, and for excellent service from one of our experienced technicians.
