You’ve probably heard that taking a quick shower instead of a long bath is one way to save on water bills. However, there are other simple steps you can take to keep the cost of those water bills down. Always use your dishwasher efficiently, only running it when completely full, and using cold water for washing your laundry will get the job done just as efficiently in most cases. You can be wasting several thousands of gallons every year, as well as wasting money if you have a dripping faucet, and repairing any leaks or drips should be on every homeowner’s list. Other money-saving steps include insulating your hot water storage tank and installing a heat trap on your water heater. Finally, something that many of us do without thinking; don’t keep the faucet running constantly when brushing your teeth!
