Tips for Water Conservation

Run Your Pool or Spa More Efficiently: Heating pools and spas uses an incredible amount of energy.

Install Low-Flow Showerheads and Faucet Aerators: Replacing your old shower head with an energy-efficient one can cut your water and energy use by half. A typical sink running for two minutes wastes at least six gallons of water, but using an aerator can reduce this to 0.5 gallons.

Purchase a Solar Hot Water System: A solar hot water system lets the sun work directly for you to heat your water.

Take Shorter Showers: Your shower is the biggest user of hot water in the entire house and you may be surprised at how much energy and cost savings await you by making a simple change.

Lower Your Water Heater to 120°F and Insulate Your Water Pipes: Your water heater is the second greediest appliance in your home in terms of energy use, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Turning down the temp while insulating the water pipes gives you hot water sooner while keeping energy from going down the drain.

Wash Full Loads in Cold Water: Washing full loads of clothes in cold water cuts the energy used for washing your clothes in half and saves water too.

Purchase a Tankless Water Heater: Tankless hot water heaters use less energy because it heats the water only when you need it.
