How To Lower Your Water Bill
Water is the most used resource that we have in our lives. We use it every day to wash our bodies, our hands, and to use around the house. Using water, of course, costs money and there's no reason to be spending more than you have to.
There are plenty of ways to lower your water bill and save money in your home. Here are a few tips and tricks on how to lower your water bill.
Take Shorter Showers
There's nothing quite like a nice hot shower after a long day of work. But long showers can cost a pretty penny in the long run. If you're just needing to clean your body or your hair, there's no real reason to spend more than ten minutes...or five.
Cutting your showers down to under ten minutes can mean saving gallons and gallons of water and save you money.
Install Energy Efficient Apliances
Using energy-efficient appliances means that appliances like water heaters and dishwashers are only using the amount of water they need and at lower energy. This will save you money on your water and energy bill as well as benefit the environment.
This can also apply to toilets. By using low-flow toilets you cut back on the amount of water that is wasted with standard toilets.
Use The Dishwasher More Often
Washing dishes in the sink wastes way more water than if you use the dishwasher on a more frequent or daily basis. In the sink, if you keep the faucet open while you're scrubbing away, the water isn't put to use. This means a higher water bill and the water went to waste, which means your dollars went to waste.
Dishwashers, especially energy-efficient versions, use only a certain amount of water and clean the dishes just as well if not better than by hand.
Check For Leaks Around The House
Leaks in your home can contribute to high water bills. This water is being "used" but not with your knowledge. It's worth giving your home a once-over to ensure there aren't any leaks going unchecked that will make your water bill look higher than usual.
