Check Your Water System
You rely on hot water for bathing and cooking. If your water heater is having problems, you may not only experience inconvenience; you could also be losing money. This is also the case with issues with your pipes. As part of your continual home maintenance plan, you should properly insulate these areas of your home.
The Benefits and Process
Your water heater can continually lose heat, increasing your energy bill and causing the unit to work harder to provide hot water. Foam insulators on pipes and the heater are simple solutions that can pay off in the long run. However, you may not know whether the water heater needs insulation. Touch the outside; if it feels warm, you should follow the previous steps to keep the heat inside the unit.
