Keep your water heating from burning a hole in your bill

 

Keep your water heating from burning a hole in your bill

Water heating averages up to 7% of the energy used in commercial buildings. These simple changes can help reduce water use and the amount of energy required to heat it.
 

  • Install faucet aerators in restrooms and low-flow showerheads for on-site shower facilities.
  • Use front-loading washing machines with high-speed spin cycles to save water and energy used for drying.
  • Choose low-water-use dishwashing equipment for cafeterias.
  • Make use of the free heat being exhausted by air conditioners, icemakers, or above a cooking line with a heat pump water heater. These water heaters also return a moderate amount of free air conditioning as a by-product.
