Water Heating and Conservation

Conserve water and lower your energy bills with water heater upgrades and low-flow showerheads.
  • Conserving water is a great way to save energy and money in your home.
  • Stop leaks. Repairing even small leaks saves gallons of water and dollars each month.
  • Install water-saving faucets and low-flow showerheads.  Find rebates on efficient models in our Marketplace.
  • Set a maximum hot water heater temperature of 120° F.
  • Upgrade your water heater to a high-efficiency model. Look for water heaters with an Energy Factor of .67 or greater (.82 or greater for larger systems) and get rebates up to $600. Visit
