Did you know that 35 to 50 percent of water used for residential irrigation is wasted? You don’t have to drown in high water bills for the sake of a green lawn. JEA’s LawnSmart experts will visit your home and show you how to get a green, beautiful lawn without the extra costs caused by overwatering.

Energy Myths

Myth: Water heater timers or turning off your water heater during the day will save you money.
This is typically of little or no value since water heaters cycle on a thermostat and typically run about 3 hours out of a 24-hour day. In order to realize a savings, a water heater would need to be set to come on fewer than 3 hours per day. And if you ran out of hot water and overrode the timer, you would override the savings, too. However, cutting off your water heater when you are leaving for the weekend or vacation does make savings sense.
