We know that lowering your utility bills is on every Utah homeowner’s mind these days. Reducing your water use not only helps the environment but helps save you money on your energy bills! At T.J. Huggard Plumbing, we want to help ensure your plumbing is running efficiently as possible and avoiding any water waste. Here are some steps you can take to conserve water in your home!
Regularly Check for Leaks
It’s important to ensure that your faucets and pipes are not leaking as those drips add up. A leaky faucet that drips twice per minute wastes more than a gallon of water per week! Making a habit of regularly checking your faucets or pipes for leaks will help catch them sooner than later, which will prevent you from wasting water and money!
Install Low-Flow Toilets
Many older toilets are more powerful and use more water than they need to be. Don’t flush your money away! Low-flow toilets use about 1.5 gallons of water to flush – which is half the water usage of older models. Give our team a call or learn more about our bathroom remodeling services if you are interested in installing low-flow toilets in your home.
Take Shorter Showers
Limiting your showers to 10 minutes is a great everyday way to save water that your whole family can do! You can also install a low-flow showerhead to help your shower be even more energy efficient. Taking a 10 minute shower with a low-flow head will help you save up to 15 gallons of water.
Upgrade Your Appliances
Older models of washing machines and dishwashers are not as energy efficient and use significantly more water than newer models. You may save money in the long run on your water bill by purchasing new appliances! Be sure to pick a new appliance with an Energy Star approval!
