Watch Your Water Heating

Water heating averages up to seven percent of the energy used in commercial buildings. These simple changes can help reduce water use and the amount of energy required to heat it.

  • Install faucet aerators in restrooms and low-flow showerheads for on-site shower facilities.

  • Use front-loading washing machines with high-speed spin cycles to save water and energy used for drying.

  • Choose low-water-use dishwashing equipment for cafeterias.

  • Make use of the free heat being exhausted by air conditioners, icemakers, or above a cooking line with a heat pump water heater. These water heaters also return a moderate amount of free air conditioning as a by-product.
