You can save $25 a month or more on your water bills by making changes in your home and to your routine. While this doesn’t sound like much, it adds up to $300 a year. There are several ways to reduce your water bills.
Take Shorter Shower
If you reduce the length of your shower by four minutes, you will save about $100 a year. You can multiply this by the number of people in your home to see you can save quite a bit. Shorter showers also reduce your energy bills.
Turn Off the Water When Shaving or Brushing Your Teeth
You shouldn’t let the water run when you’re shaving or brushing your teeth as it’s a total waste of money. You can keep a cup of hot water in the bathroom to rinse the razor when you’re shaving. Use a rinse cup when brushing your teeth instead of letting the water run.
Install low-flow showerheads in your bathrooms. These reduce the amount of water used while showering by 50%. The savings on your water bills will quickly pay for the cost of buying these showerheads.
Run Your Clothes and Dish Washers on Full Loads
Fill your washers as much as possible before running them. This will reduce the number of times you need to load them, which reduces your water bills.
Buy Efficient Appliances
When you need a washer for clothes or dishes, buy one that has the Energy Star and WaterSense seals. The seals mean the appliance runs on up to 50% less water than traditional ones. Front-loading clothes washers use a lot less water than top-loading models as well.
