Conserve and Go Solar

If I turn off my water heater to save energy, won’t I end up using more energy to reheat the water?

Although you will use some energy to reheat water after your heater has been turned off, it will still be less energy overall compared to having your heater on all hours of everyday. Modern water heater tanks are insulated, so all you really need is to turn it on an hour or two before you plan to use the shower. Dishwashers don’t rely on hot water from your tank, they heat the water themselves.
