Southern Californians are always looking for ways to cut back on water usage, both to lower their bill and to aid water conservation efforts in our desert region. Here are four ways you can reduce your water usage and lower your utility bills.
Use Less Water
We have always been told to take shorter showers to reduce our water usage, but there are other ways you can use less water that you may not think about. Check for leaks in your faucet and water heater and get them fixed as soon as possible, as leaks can waste a lot of water. You can also try turning off your faucet while brushing your teeth and filling the sink to do dishes instead of letting the water run.
Low Flow Shower Heads and Toilets
Shower heads and toilets are two of the biggest water wasters in your home. Replacing them with low flow versions can do a lot to conserve water.
Energy Star Appliances
Choosing Energy Star appliances when purchasing a new dishwasher or washing machine can help you shave a significant amount off your water bill. These appliances use water more efficiently and therefore use much less than other appliances.
Get a Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters only heat water as it is used, making it much more energy-efficient than the tank models. The qualified technicians at Professional Plumbing, Inc. can install a new tankless water heater in Riverside, CA, to keep your home eco-friendly and efficient.
