Finding ways to decrease your energy consumption can make it easier to keep utility bills within your budget. At Aqua Plumbing & Air, we have some plumbing ideas that can have a positive impact your electric bill.
One of the more effective ways to save energy is with the installation of low flow shower heads in each of your bathrooms. Equipment of this type offers a couple of key benefits that are kind to your finances and don’t require any major changes to your plumbing in Bradenton, FL.
Lowering Your Water Usage
One of the immediate changes you will notice after the installation of a low flow shower head is that the household consumption of water will decrease noticeably. Many people are not aware of the fact, but roughly half of the average home’s daily water usage is related to taking showers. Depending on the type of shower head you select, it is possible to reduce the water consumed for showers by anywhere from fifty to seventy percent.
When you receive the water bill for the first complete billing period after installing the new heads, the difference will be immediately apparent. As a bonus, the lower water consumption also helps to make the community a little more environmentally friendly. The combination allows you to make the most of your home plumbing in Bradenton, FL and also make sure there is a decent water supply during drought season.
Trimming the Cost of Electricity and Gas
Along with lowering consumption of water and saving money, you will also see a difference in another utility bill. Whether you have a gas or an electric water heater, the equipment will have to run less often in order to supply the home with plenty of hot water. Since the unit is kicking on less often, this translates into a significant amount of energy savings. Since you are utilizing less electricity or gas to heat the water, the overall cost of enjoying a steady supply of hot water will also decrease. .
