  • Install inexpensive pipe insulation on all exposed hot water pipes and on the first three feet of exposed cold water pipe connected to the 热水器.
  • Wash clothes in cold water and take shorter showers.
  • Use the dishwasher rather than hand-washing dishes and don't pre-rinse dishes.

  • Buy a 热水器 blanket, and wrap it around the tank to prevent heat loss.

照明
