If an electric heater is not in use for 2-3 weeks, should we turn it off? I wonder if turning it on and off throughout the summer at our lake house is more costly than leaving it on. It is a new one as well.
An electric heater doesn't use any juice if it's not heating. But yes if you know it's not going to get below freezing cut the power off to it.
If I set my gas water heater on "pilot" while I am away (about 2 weeks), is it OK to turn off the water supply to the house? If I do this, can I simply turn the water supply back on and set the water heater to "on"?
