Going on vacation? Don't forget your water heater. - Plumbing Tips

I know, I know... with the cost of flying luggage these days why on earth would I take my water heater with me? 

Whelp, cause that's not exactly what we meant.  Heating water is one of the most common reasons our electricity bill can get away from us.  So if you have a summer trip planned, make sure your home is ready for it too—especially if you're going to be away for weeks (or, lucky you) months at a time.

If no one is going to be at home we recommend you turn your water heater down to its low, pilot, or vacation setting.  No need to keep your water heated and ready to rock if you'll be rolling somewhere else.
