Water Heatersarrows

A water heater is one of the home’s hardest working appliances and a great place to begin being more energy efficient. Start by setting the hot water temperature to no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Insulating exposed water pipes prevents heat loss through the pipes and reduces the workload of the water heater.

Low-flow showerheads, energy-saving faucet aerators, six feet of water pipe insulation and water heater insulation blankets are some of the items provided at no charge during a MidAmerican Energy HomeCheck® audit. Learn how to qualify for a free home energy audit by calling MidAmerican at 800-545-0762.
