Water Conservation Tips

When public officials say: “Every Drop of Water Counts.” It’s a true statement. If you don’t leave your shower running just to heat it up, or if you turn off your faucet when brushing your teeth are just two simple examples of how we can conserve water. When it concerns the more technical aspects of water conservation, xpressHVAC Air Conditioning, Heating and Plumbing are experts on this matter. Fun fact: On average. 10 gallons per household is lost to leaks. That’s well over 10% of your water bill!

As we all know, here in California, we’re all in the same boat when it comes to water conservation. Year in and year out we deal with the tough realities of a long drought. Believe it or not, there are simple, practical, everyday things we can do to conserve water. Cutting down on watering days, not leaving the sin running and taking shorter showers are just a few examples.

For the more technical aspects of water conservation, we fancy ourselves as experts on the matter. Did you know that close to ten gallons per household, on average is lost to leaks? That amounts to well over 10 percent of your water bill! Also, homeowners should look into upgrading to energy-efficient “Energy Star” appliances, these don’t waste water (or electricity) as much as their older counterparts. Also, you should adjust your settings on your washer so that is appropriate to the number of clothes you are putting in– this will save you many, many gallons per month in water.

There’s a whole lot of options when it comes to making your plumbing more efficient at conserving water. With some proper plumbing services, you can save a lot of money on your utility bills as well as conserve water. You never know where you may have a leak in your plumbing system, and debris inside your pipes can create blockages that will make your plumbing system practically useless, not to mention inefficient.

You can take even further action towards better water conservation by upgrading your showerheads and your sink faucets. Newer faucets and showerheads are much better at regulating water pressure, making for more efficient showers and sink usage, all while still maintaining a desirable amount of water pressure.
