Timer on my water heater

I installed GE 15070 timer to control my water heater.
Timer is mounted in-wall below attic light switch. Timer is same size as typical light switch

When Hot water is scheduled using timer, our hot water consumption drops.
Reducing consumption is key to saving money and saving energy.

9 ways to save with water heater

I chose this timer for reasons:
Eye-level installation: easy to change schedule, and reset after power outage
Manual override is ON-OFF button that can permanently override timer.
30-minute intervals give good control of schedule: 30 minutes for shower in summer, and 60 minutes for shower in winter.

Electric meter on my water heater

Resource:
How to install electric meter on water heater, electric dryer, or any 240Volt appliance

Each appliance (gas and electric) should have a meter.
Forget the energy star label... some people want to know actual facts
New technologies are taking shape that will make my old-fashioned ideas obsolete, but until then, straight facts are hard to find.
A dedicated meter tells the real story.
Suggest putting meter on water heater for 1 year to get baseline. Then move meter to electric oven for 6 months. Then move meter to HVAC for a year. Then sell meter to brother-in-law.

The meter allows experiment to see what saves money.

Price of water

What is water worth?

If you carried each gallon from the river to 2nd floor bathtub, would you start to conserve?
Average home uses 1/4 to 1/2 acre-foot water per year.
135,000 gallons = 27,000 5-gallon buckets

If each bath cost $30, would you conserve?
Remember, conserving resources is 'conservative'

Average home with water well pays $12 per year to pump water.
