Conserve Energy and Water by Controlling Hot Water Use

Conserving your hot water use will save energy and water. Here are a few helpful pointers from the experts at Donley Service Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

Here in the Arizona desert, we are always looking for ways to conserve water and energy. You can do both at home by simply managing your use of hot water. Donley Service Center is a leading provider of HVAC services and water heater installation in the Phoenix area.

The company says aside from installing an energy efficient water heater, there are several easy steps people can take to manage hot water usage.

“One benefit of being careful to conserve hot water is that it will always be there when you need it,” says Ken DiCicco with Donley Service Center. “People frequently run out of hot water because they use it faster than their water heater can heat it up. This is a big sign that you need to start conserving water.”

Rinse Dishes with Cold Water

If you use a dishwasher to clean your dishes at home, consider rinsing your dishes with cold water instead of hot water before throwing them in the dishwater. You’ll use much less hot water and conserve energy.

Install Low-Flow Shower Heads

This simple step can conserve a lot of water every year. According to APS, a family of four that uses low flow shower heads will conserve about 15,000 gallons of water every year. That’s a lot of water for such a small change in your routine.

Wash Clothes with Cold Water

The vast majority of the time, washing your clothes in hot water is not necessary. You can conserve a lot of hot water simply by choosing to wash your clothes in cold or warm water. If laundry isn’t heavily soiled, cold water will be enough. For dirtier loads, warm water is most often more than enough.

Install an Efficient Water Heater

One of the best ways to conserve energy and hot water is to install a more efficient water heater. Donley Service Center can install efficient tank heaters, tankless water heaters and solar water heaters.
