Today’s homeowner is more environmentally conscious than ever, and everyone loves to save money on their utility bills. Thankfully, using less water is one of the best ways to reduce your home costs and help the earth. Now that spring is here, you and your family will likely spending more time outside, and will be using more water for tasks like washing the car or tending to your garden. So, how can you save water? Here are three tips to get you started:
- Turn off the faucet. One of the simplest ways to save water is just to be more conscious about your usage. For example: turning the faucet off while brushing your teeth can save up to 200 gallons of water per month!
- Recycle. There are often situations where running the faucet is necessary while waiting for water to heat up. One solution for this is to save the water you’re running and recycle it for use later – instead of letting it run down the drain, place a container into the sink. Save it for drinking, watering the plants or for feeding pets. If you’d like to save water by eliminating the need to run it, improving your hot water heater’s efficiency, talk to one of our experts about the benefits of a tankless water heater.
- Use more efficient appliances. If your home is older, it’s likely that your appliances are using more water than newer versions. From more efficient dishwashers to low-flow shower heads, you can save water in almost any area of your home!
