4 Cost-Effective Ways to Save Water

Finding ways to save water in your home is not only environmentally responsible, but cost-effective as well.

Living in a dry state such as Utah means that this precious resource comes at a high price. Unfortunately, many people end up paying for water they don’t even use.

While a couple of dollars of wasted water can go unnoticed, over time, these bills can add up and feel financially burdensome. Below are four tips to help you keep more of your hard-earned income every month.

1. Install High-Efficiency Faucets and Showerheads

In your day-to-day living, it can seem difficult to cut back on water usage. We need water to shower, wash our hands, clean dishes, etc. The list goes on and on.

Each of these activities is necessary. However, each can be improved with a high-efficiency spout. High-efficiency faucets and showerheads help streamline the water that you are using, allowing you to take longer, better showers and use less water.

2. Fix Slow Drips

Repairing that leaky faucet in the bathroom may not seem like a big deal. However, every drop that falls is money down the drain.

Over time, this will add up, so take the time to fix the leak or call someone to do it for you.

3. Replace Your Toilet

If you have an old toilet, you should look into getting a new one. Many of the older models use a lot more water to flush than is necessary.

They are inefficient and more prone to leaking as well. Changing out your toilet for a more modern one will help you save water.

4. Exchange Your Swamp Cooler for Central Air

Swamp coolers need water to function; central air does not. Swamp coolers work by moving air past water. The water cools the air down and lowers the temperature of your home.

As the water warms in the summer heat, however, it evaporates. As a result, more of it is needed to cool the air. Central air conditioning takes the water out of this entire process.

If you’re looking for ways to cut down on your water bill every month, switching to central air conditioning is the way to do it.
