Always turn off all water-using appliances when completely turning off the water source, such as water heaters and humidifiers.
• Disconnect all water hoses.
To save money and electricity, turn down the water heater and unplug
all televisions and appliances. This may also help prevent damages from electrical storms and power surges.
• Turn off your water heater at the electrical breaker panel; this will protect the heating element and reduce your use of electricity while you are away.
