Use Less Water, Save on Your Bill
We use more water than we probably need to and that can lead to extra costs in energy with your hot water heater. The good news is there are measures you can take to reduce your water use, which will reduce your energy bill.
Fix Any Leaks in Faucets, Showerheads or Pipes
The first thing you can do to lower your water use is simply fixing any leaks. That old leaky faucet may not seem like it is using a lot of water, but that can amount to hundreds of gallons per year if it keeps leaking.
Install Low-Flow Fixtures
A low-flow fixture can be a sink faucet, a showerhead or a toilet that conserves water by using less water per minute. Installing these in place of your old fixtures can actually save you a lot of money in the long run! According to Energy.gov, you can get some low-flow fixtures for about $10-$20 and you can have a water savings of 25%-60%.
For a low-flow sink faucet you will want to purchase an aerator, which is the screw-on tip of the faucet that has a flow rate of 1.0 gpm. For showerheads you will want a flow rate of 2.0 gpm or less, and you can choose from the two types, laminar-flow or aerating low-flow shower heads. As far as toilets are concerned, low-flow toilets use about half the amount of water as traditional toilets.
