Hot Water Energy Saving Tips;

Water heating is the largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions from Australian households. We have provided a list of tips to help reduce your carbon footprint and save you money going forward:

  • The most hot water used in the average household is from showering. 23 Hour Plumbing recommends installing a water efficient showerhead, of at least a 3 star energy rating. By installing a water efficient showerhead you can reduce your water usage by approximately half – and you will notice this reduction on your energy bills. If you have a continuous flow hot water heater you need to ensure that your water efficient showerhead is compatible with the water heater model. 23 Hour Plumbing can assist in the installation and correct choice for your new water efficient showerhead.
  • Use a shower timer to reduce your water usage and, whenever possible, run your dishwasher and washing machine cycles on cold.
  • The thermostat on your hot water storage tank needs to be set at above 60°C, to prevent the risk of harmful bacteria, such as Legionella growing in the tank. And at no more than 50°C in relation to your continuous flow water heater. But, if your thermostat is set too high this will use energy unnecessarily.
  • Have any dripping taps or leaking pipes repaired immediately.
  • Leave your mixer taps on the cold position, rather than in the center, or hot, position. When left in the center or hot position you could be using hot water unnecessarily each time you use the tap.
  • Always have your water heaters maintained according to manufacturer’s instructions and only enlist the services of a fully licensed plumber for any repairs or replacements. Attempting a DIY repair or replacement on your water heater could void your warranties and any insurance claims.
