Everyone is looking for simple and inexpensive ways to save energy and money. Here’s a thought to consider: hot water heater timers. Intermatic’s WH Series time switches provide automatic control for electric water heaters. They provide to-the-minute accuracy in programming and time keeping, and they can be programmed for repeat daily scheduling, 5-day working week scheduling, weekend scheduling or any individual day scheduling. Timers can be scheduled for operation during the lowest time-of-day rates or to switch off the electric heater during periods of peak power usage. The time switch can be set to operate for up to 6 ON/OFF operations daily for a maximum of 42 on/off operations weekly. They provide a convenient external override switch and LED load indicator for ease in scheduling hot water as required for extra hot water demands.
