DIY energy saving tips and products. Save money with our gas water heater timer. Attaches easily to your water heater reducing your usage.

DOES A WATER HEATER TIMER REALLY SAVE ENERGY?
You decide! Imagine heating your water only 3 hours each day...perhaps 1-1/2 hours in the morning for bathing and 1-1/2 hours in the evening for kitchen and bathroom requirements, instead of 24/7. The water heater timer reduces gas burner usage by approximately 45 minutes each day or about 27,000 BTU.s of gas consumption by the average gas water heater in use today.

The savings...
Annual reduced emissions of 1,154 lbs. of CO2 and 311 lbs. of carbon.

WILL I BE WITHOUT HOT WATER IF I USE A WATER HEATER TIMER?
NO. Even though the burner is shut off from the water heater timer you are not without hot water. You will have hot water stored for intermittent uses between timer settings.
