An electric water heater doesn’t necessarily need to run around the clock.
Did you know you can get a programmer for your hot water heater that operates similarly to a programmable thermostat?
Use a hot water heater timer to automatically turn the heater on during your family’s peak usage times and off when it’s not needed (like when everyone is at work, school, or sleeping).
A decent hot water heater timer costs between $40 and $60.
