You can control your electric hot water heater

Depending on your usage, installing a digital time clock on your electric water heater could pay for itself in 16 to 18 months.

 

Hot water heaters do not need to run constantly and, just like home heating and air conditioning they can be controlled with digital devices. If you have an electric water heater, Tall Tree Electric can help you save $200 per year or more.

PS. The math:

On average a water heater draws 3500 watts/hr = .875kw/hr. during non-use hours, (15 min/hr heating time) times $.09/hr. X 12 hrs./day (10 pm-4 am and 9 am-3 pm) = $.945 savings per day, times 20 days a month (Mon – Fri.), = $18.90/month savings, plus 4 weekends per month (10pm-6am.), for a savings of an additional $5.04/month, for a total of $23.94/month times 12 months = $287.28 on your electric bill per year!
