If you’re like many people, you use your water heater to heat your home during the winter. But did you know that you can also use it to heat up water for other purposes? For example, if you have a pool or spa, you can use your water heater to warm the water. Or if you have a garden, you can use your water heater to warm up the soil before planting. The best way to determine whether your water heater can be used for other purposes is to check the manufacturer’s specifications.
