Switch to High Efficiency
Summer time is on its way. Thinking of making some updates to your bathroom or kitchen? There is an ongoing drought in California. Many are switching to ‘high-efficiency’ fixtures. These fixtures save more than water. They save you money on your energy bill too. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, “It takes a considerable amount of energy to deliver and treat the water you use. For example, letting your faucet run for five minutes uses about as much energy as letting a 60-watt light bulb run for 14 hours.” The site also suggests retrofitting with WaterSense labeled fixtures and ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances.
Clearly, water conservation can benefit us and the environment. But where do you start? What are your options?
First, consider replacing your toilet. “Toilets are often the source of the most water use (and water wasting) within a home. They account for nearly 30 percent of an average home’s indoor water consumption,” states thegreenspotlight.com.
Second, simply replacing your shower head can “cut your shower water use by as much as 70 percent”. Low flow shower heads also reduce the demand on your water heater. The less water it needs to heat, the less energy it uses. This saves you more money!
Lastly, faucets can easily be modified to save water. You can “add a water-saving aerator or flow restrictor to the existing faucets.”
