Significantly less? How about Almost nothing?!
Great work! And when you factor in the cost of a larger tank (but without timer) then it's probably already paid for itself

Do you have a timer on the tank at home? I'm sure that using a timer in the right way (plus extra insulation!!) will go a looong way. Downsizing the tank would also help, but not nearly as much.
