How to Save Money on Home Energy and Water Bills

Would you like for your electricity & water bills to go down this summer instead of
up? You can save energy without spending much money!
The average person uses 60 gallons of water a day and wastes more than 9 gallons a
day through household leaks. Yikes!
W - Wash laundry only when there is a full load (some HE washers use "precise fill"
so it only uses what you need when you need to run a load that isn't full).
A - Always turn off running water (and teach your family that). You don't have to run
the water while brushing your teeth. If you need to run the water to get it hot,
use the cold water to fill your watering can.
T - Take shorter showers. Be efficient. You'll have more time to do other things!
You may need to use a timer with some teenagers - some will take super-long showers
and use all the hot water!
E - Eliminate any and all leaks. You may think, "Oh, I'll fix it later." But you may
be wasting more money than you think! Use this Drip Calculator to figure out how much water you may be wasting!
R - Reduce the flow of toilets and showerheads. You can find regulators and other devices.
You can even find showerheads that may reduce water but you can't even tell.
Home Water Conservation doesn't have to be difficult! If you have landscaping or a garden that you water
frequently, you might could use a rain barrel to conserve water.
These things seem small. You may not even notice a difference in your bills at first.
But over time, you can save money. Or as a Tanzanian proverb says, "Little by little, a little becomes a lot."
