BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Here’s an energy tip.  Try turning down the temperature on your water heater.

Don’t worry your dishes will still get a good cleaning in your dishwasher because most have built-in heaters to boost the temperature to 140 degrees.

Mary Bubala reports using your dishwasher’s lightest setting will also do the job.  The heavy-duty settings use more water.

The easiest way to save is to use the no-heat dry option.  Open the door and let the dishes air dry the rest of the way.
