A water heater can consume a lot of electricity and is one of the appliances in your house that costs you the most money. I personally have a tankless water heater which only heats up the water when I need it. I have saved about 33% on my water heating by switching.
If you are interested in getting off the grid or just to reduce your overall electricity bill then this quite simple DIY solar project could help you do just that. It is a myth that solar water heaters don’t work that well in the winter but that isn’t true at all.
Check out this amazing tutorial, if you don’t have the time or money to get this done this year bookmark or print off so you have the information available when you can.
