It is important that a water heater be properly insulated. Poor insulation does not only rob homeowners of money in the winter, but it also robs them of the hottest water that they could, otherwise, have in their home. The insulation makes sure that the heating elements do not have to be used as often. This typically translates into lower operating costs. It can also translate to the heating elements inside of the water heater lasting longer since they are not being used as frequently.
Having a professional properly adjust the thermostat temperature in a water heater is also another way to make sure that a home's water heater is ready for the winter. Depending on where the water heater is stored, air temperature can be up to 30 degrees cooler than in the rest of the house. This may lead to cooler water being distributed in the home. Having the heater's thermostat temperature raised in the winter will help to ensure that a family will have hot water all winter long.
