Water Heating Systems


Your home's water heating system distributes hot water throughout your home. Insulating different parts of your water heating system will help you save money. 


  • Save money: Saving energy on your water heating system translates to energy and water bill savings. Water heating accounts for roughly 20% of your energy bill. 

Where to begin: 

  • Purchase a water heater blanket. 
    • Adding a water heater blanket to the outside of your tank prevents heat loss. This will allow water to heat up faster and for you to save money. If you're looking to do it yourself, check out this guide.
  • Insulate your hot water pipes.
    •  Adding insulation to accessible pipes reduces heat loss when transporting water from the heater to the faucet. Keeping the pipes insulated will help you save money. For more information on how to do this yourself, check out this video
