A water heater without a timer continues to operate intermittently throughout the day and night, even when not in use in order to maintain a steady temperature. This can cause the energy bill to be higher. By simply investing in the installation of a timer for your water heater you may save yourself approximately 10%-12%, if not more, on your energy bill or up to 75% on that portion of your bill derived from the water heater itself.
To benefit the most from your water heater timer, have the timer set to be powered off during those times when you are at work or sleeping. We recommend that you set your timer to automatically turn on power to your water heater 30 minutes prior to its potential use. Not operating your water heater 24 hours/7 days a week intermittently will also prolong the life span of your water heater’s elements. Once the water heater timer installation and programming is complete you can begin to enjoy the savings for years to come.
