Have you ever found yourself shocked by the monthly gas or electricity bill? If you are looking for some easy ways to go about reducing your monthly bills, then you may want to look into adjusting the water heater temperature. By simply changing the average temperature that you keep your water heater set at, you can actually save quite a bit of money. This only makes sense, since if you have your temperature set to a lower setting, then you will find yourself using less energy. The question though is how to do it.
The easiest, and perhaps best way to do it, is to get an electrician friend to help you out. This is particularly helpful if you are not very electrically minded, which many people are not. However, if you need to do it yourself, there are a few simple things that you can do in order to do the task yourself.
