Insulating your water heater reduces heat loss, energy use, and utility bills. Install an insulation blanket on water heaters seven years or older. Also, insulate the first three feet of the hot water pipe at the top of the water heater. This prevents heat from escaping and can increase the water temperature 2ºF to 4ºF at the faucet.
As a faith leader, you can help inspire your congregation to care for God's creation.
