Tweaked Electric Water Heater Timer To Better Match My Warm Baths For My Physical Disability
[ Wednesday November 4th 2020 at 11:27 pm ]
I find a really warm bath helps ease the pain and stiffness in my legs. There are some days when I have 2 baths. I've just adjusted the settings on my electric hot water tank timer to match the increased need for hot water. Before now I had the settings on the timer to match only one bath a day plus warm water for washing my hands and the dishwasher. The changes I made allow water entering my hot water heater to recover quicker.
Besides the timer I also have an insulating blanket on my hot water heater. This slows water that is heated up and on stand by from cooling down. It saves electricity in the cycles to keep the water at temperature. The insulating blanket paid for itself in electricity savings after about 6 months. I'm making my money go as far as possible.
