Question about Intermatic EI210 Electronic Auto Shutoff Timers
Are water heater's timers beneficial?
A timer on a conventional electric water heater can save 5-12% on your hot water bill. The water in the tank remains hot for up to eight hours or more while the water heater is not in operation, depending on the insulation and age of the unit. However, the hot water is still available for household use until it is completely consumed. Thus, if a household has a fifty-gallon water heater, it will have fifty-gallons of hot water available while the water heater is not in operation. Most households won't notice the interruption unless they have high hot water use patterns in relation to tank size. It is best to set the timer during hours when hot water use is lowest, typically during the work day or at night. Adjusting the timer may be necessary if households experience a shortage of hot water.
