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"?

What about electric hot water heaters. Do the vacation settings work for these? Is this better then turning the power off to the heater entirely?

if the water heater is on vacation mode and the water intake is off, is there a chance of significant evaporation of the water in the tank after a few months

I usually turn off the water main. Have been leaving the water heater (electric with power vent) alone. wondered if I should just unplug the water heater or use vacation setting or leave alone.
Usually three of four days.
