Save Water in the Shower and Save Money Year Round

Whether it’s hot and sunny or cold and windy, the one thing that stays consistent throughout the year for many people is taking a shower with warm or hot water. While taking a shower can be a great way to end the day, the amount of water used during the shower could possibly add to any worries you already have. Using hot water increases not only the water bills, but energy bills as well. Save water in the shower to save money on bills no matter what the season.

The simplest way to save shower water is to just take shorter showers. I found that when I timed my showers, I was more aware of the amount of water being used, also making me more aware of how much I actually needed to use.

Another great way to save water in the shower is to replace your current showerheads with water efficient ones. Water efficient showerheads are produced in a way that allows for less water to be used without sacrificing any level of comfort. Water efficient showerheads are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes for many shower styles. Choosing to save water in the shower this way can reduce shower water use by about 30%, also decreasing this portion of water and water heating costs.

According to Newton’s Law of Motion, “to every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.” The same rule can be applied to making changes such as these at home. When you reduce the amount of hot water consumed at home, you will also reduce the amount of money spent on both water and water heating, and these are savings you can count on all year long.
