BENEFITS OF A
GAS WATER HEATER TIMER

For years we have been saving energy by using a timer on our Electric Water Heaters. Until now there has not been a way to safely put a timer on a Gas Water Heater. All tank style water heaters have standby heat loss whether gas or electric. Standby heat loss causes your water heater to fire during a 24 hour period whether you use hot water or not while you are at work or sleeping or away on vacation. This needless waste of energy emits excess carbon emissions into the air, consumes excess fuel, shortens the life of the water heater and costs you extra money to supply you with hot water.

The Gas Water Heater Timer acts as a programmable setback controller which enables a user to program their water heater to automatically “set back” or lower the temperature stored within the tank for periods of time when hot water demand is low, and raise the temperature for periods of time when hot water demand is high. Rigorous testing, of a similar water heater timer, at a state of the art research and development facility by a major water heater manufacturer has been done to determine how much fuel can be saved. Test results were consistent. Water heaters using a timer significantly reduced fuel usage.

Imagine heating your water only 3 hours each day...perhaps 1-1/2 hours in the morning for bathing and 1-1/2 hours in the evening for kitchen and bathroom requirements, instead of 24/7. The Gas Water Heater Timer reduces gas burner usage by approximately 45 minutes each day or about 27,000 BTU.s of gas consumption by the average gas water heater in use today. Annual reduced emissions of 1,154 lbs. of CO2 and 311 lbs. of carbon. (Sources: PG&E rate and EPA Energy Footprint). There are approximately 55 million gas powered water heaters in the Nation. If we all had a Gas Water Heater Timer, the environmental impact would be substantial.

25% of each energy dollar goes to heat water! (Source: California Energy Commission—Consumer Energy Center). Consider a Gas Water Heater Timer as part of your effort to keep our environment clean and put money back in your family’s bank account.

The Gas Water Heater Timer can be installed by the average consumer. It takes about 10 minutes.
