Keep your hot water bill down this Winter

In most homes, water heating accounts for over a quarter of your total household bills. We have come up with some tips to help you reduce the cost of your hot water bill.

Using less hot water is the easiest way to save money:

  • Installing water-saving taps or shower heads uses less water while maintaining the same water pressure.
  • Use cold water in your washing machine as often as you can. Most detergents work just as well in cold water so your clothes will be just as clean.

Regular maintenance and the location of your hot water system are important contributors to your hot water bill:

  • By insulating your hot water pipes you will ensure that you have minimal heat loss.
  • Regular replacement of the sacrificial anode in electrical hot water systems. The sacrificial anode is a key part of the rust protection of a tank.

The hot water system should be centrally located to minimise the distance the water has to travel. The further the hot water goes, the more heat will be lost, so it is a good idea to keep it between the kitchen, laundry and bathroom.

Using these tips will help you to reduce the cost of your hot water system, but if you need any other advice or help regarding your water heating, call Omega on 1300 637 797
