Reducing the amount of hot water you use can drastically reduce your monthly utility bills. There are many practical things you can do to achieve this without sacrificing comfort or shortening your shower. Install aerating faucets and shower heads to decrease the water flow. This means that the water tank will empty at a slower rate, and therefore it will require less energy to heat back up when your shower is finished.
You can pick these new fixtures up at most any hardware store. If that doesn’t work, try an insulation wrap around the unit.
