Get Your Hot Water Faster

Most people run their showers for a few minutes to let the water warm up. This accounts for hundreds of gallons of wasted water (and wasted energy) each year. By situating your hot water heater closer to your bathroom or other points of use, you can save energy and get your hot water faster. When it’s time to upgrade your plumbing, switch copper lines to PEX (cross-linked polyethylene), which has a smaller inner diameter and will reduce the amount of heat lost during travel.
