Unless you live alone, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced waiting for the shower, taking a cool or cold shower or missing your chance to shower all together. Getting out the door in the morning can be challenging enough, especially with buses to catch, lunches to pack, phone calls to field and lost homework to find.
While missing a shower in the midst of it all may not be the end of the world, the way you begin your day can often influence how the rest of it goes. So, why not do what you can to get a pleasant start?
3 Ways to De-Stress the Hot Water Situation
Here are three helpful tips to reduce the stress around the hot water portion of your morning and save on your water bills all year long.
1. Install a Low-Flow Shower Head
Low-flow shower heads use less water than traditional shower heads while still providing you with a satisfying shower experience. The difference is that you’ll save water and the money you pay to heat it all year long. Not only that, but you’ll get more showers in before your hot water runs out, so no one has to face the dreaded cold shower.
2. Shower at Night—No Lines, No Waiting
If you don’t require a hot shower in the morning to help open your sleepy eyes, taking a shower in the evening can be a relaxing alternative. You’ll avoid the mad rush for the bathroom and, unless you take unusually long showers, it’s unlikely you’ll need to worry about running out of hot water.
3. Consider a Tankless Water Heater
A tankless water heater can solve at least part of your morning hot water madness. Unlike traditional water heaters that heat up a finite amount of water at a time, tankless heaters heat water as needed, providing on-demand hot water. That means there’s always hot water when you want it. You can have two people taking showers simultaneously or back-to-back with no issues, or even do laundry or dishes while someone is showering. You’ll essentially have an unlimited hot water supply. And, there’s no tank of water to heat when no one is using it. That’s an improvement in energy efficiency all the way around.
