Insulating both the heater and the water heater pipe will reduce heat loss by almost half and save you close to 10% in water heating costs. You can also adjust the temperature of the water heater to 120 degrees. Keeping the temperature lower results in energy savings for you and extends the life of the heater.
Check the anode rod yearly to prevent the inside of your water heater from rusting out. The anode rod is a key anti-rust mechanism placed in the heater. Once it is worn down, it needs to be replaced so that no rust builds up in the heater and shortens its lifespan. Occasionally drain the water heater so that you can clean it out of sediment that’s collected in the bottom. This will keep your water heater running optimally.

This is typically a PVC pipe just barely sticking out over a window seal. If you notice water dripping from here, you should immediately address your AC system before it causes major water damage!
Make sure to change your filters monthly so that your system can function correctly. By doing this, you can extend the life of your furnace, improve your indoor air quality, and reduce your energy bills!
