Waiting 20 minutes for a Hot Shower

Linda Priddy
Herrin, IL

My husband, Jacob, installed switches on each of our two electric water heaters. We turn them off after taking showers, doing laundry, washing dishes, and then, 20 minutes before we need hot water, we go and turn them back on. A little forethought makes a big difference in our electric bill.
