How much money will I save?

Q:

How much money will I save?

A:

The amount of money you save will depend upon how much hot water you use in showers, and in activities such as washing hands or dishes under running water.

Of the heat available in that water 30% to 60% can be recovered, depending upon the capacity of the in-line heat recovery device. For a typical family of four, using natural gas, this may range between $80 and $160 per year. (Feb 2010) If using electricity to heat your water, the savings could range between $200 and $375 a year. (Feb 2010)
