Electric habits to keep you out of hot water

April 6, 2023 – Adopting simple electric habits can keep you from getting burned with a higher electric bill. Consider the following when it comes to hot water usage: 


  • Opt for showers over baths. A low-flow showerhead uses approximately 20 gallons of water during a ten-minute shower while it takes an average of 70 gallons of water to fill a bathtub.
  • Turn off the shower while you soap your body and shave.

Laundry room:

  • Use cold or warm water instead of hot when washing your clothes. According to the Department of Energy, using warm water in place of hot can cut your energy usage in half.


  • Never rinse your dishes before loading them into your dishwasher. Pre-rinsing means you are using twice the hot water.
  • Always fill your dishwasher fully before running a load.
  • Keep your faucet lever in the cold setting to avoid having your water heater kick on just to rinse fruits and vegetables.
