That wasn’t so convenient for me because I was a teenager and I would often want to take a shower after school, but I managed to survive it
A long time ago, it was kind of common knowledge that water heaters are big wasters of energy and electricity. it was generally considered true that your water heater was the second largest consumer of energy in your house, second only to the heating and cooling system. I do not know if that is still true or not. I have a water heater that is quite large, and it is just a typical regular water heater. it is not one of the new heaters that Embraces modern HVAC or water heating technology. I like the idea of on-demand water heaters and I wonder if they are all they’re cracked up to be or if they are not. My landlord told me that most modern water heaters, even those that are just traditional tank water heaters, like mine, really don’t waste that much energy anymore. It’s simply the old-fashioned water heaters that really are inefficient. I cannot complain about my lack of hot water, that is for sure. Recently I took a shower that was very long because I just felt like staying in there, and I started losing the hot water after at least half an hour. It took that long before I started feeling cold. I think that is pretty good. I know a long time ago my mom put a timer on the water heater so that it wouldn’t keep producing and storing hot water all day long while no one was home to use any of the hot water. That wasn’t so convenient for me because I was a teenager and I would often want to take a shower after school, but I managed to survive it. I do know that one thing you can do with your water heater is to get that styrofoam stuff and put it around the pipes that go into and out of your heater. if you don’t have that sometimes just a pool noodle from the dollar store will work.
