It takes a great deal of energy to heat water for home use. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, water heaters account for roughly 15 percent of the average U.S. homeowner’s energy usage.

One easy way to save energy with your water heater is to adjust its thermostat. Setting the thermostat a bit lower can substantially reduce your unit’s standby heating costs. You can learn how to adjust your water heater’s thermostat by watching this video.
