Seattle Hot Water Heaters
Heating water takes one-fifth (20%) of the total energy used in a typical Seattle area household. That makes it the second largest single use behind space heating.
Consequently, large energy savings are possible if you pay attention to conserving energy devoted to water heating.

Heating Water More Efficiently
The greatest inefficiency of an electric hot water heater lies in the heat it loses during the time is sits around waiting for us to turn on the hot water tap. For purposes of this discussion, please consider the pipes that carry the hot water from the tank to the tap. This heat loss is commonly referred to as the "standby loss" and minimizing it increases the efficiency of the system.
There are two main ways to reduce the standby loss:
- Either increase the insulation between the hot water and the cooler environment or
- Decrease the temperature difference between the hot water and the environment.

Insulate Your Existing Water Heater. If your electric water heater was installed before 2004, installing an insulating jacket is one of the most effective do-it-yourself energy-saving projects, especially if your water heater is in an unheated space. The insulating jacket will reduce standby heat loss-heat lost through the walls of the tank-by 25-40%, saving 4-9% on your water heating bills.
