Water heating tips

No cost options

Maintenance
Maintain your water heating systems – inspect them regularly, repair leaks and fix dripping taps.

Temperature
Set thermostats to the right temperature – overheating water is costly.

Low cost options

Insulation
Insulate hot water pipes. If your hot water cylinder is warm to touch, install insulation wrap.

Timers
Install timers to heat water only when required or, if your plan allows, to take advantage of off-peak pricing.

Options to invest in

Cylinder size
Choose the right sized hot water cylinder for the job. Place hot water cylinders in a sheltered place on the sunny side of the shed.

Heat recovery
Install a heat exchange system which chills milk while generating hot water.
