How Can I Save Water in my Home?

When it comes to being a homeowner, there are many different things you might try to implement around your home to cut back on your monthly bills. Whether that’s a conscious effort to decrease your energy usage or your gas bill, there are many ways to make an impact — one of the most important (and useful) is to cut back on your water consumption. If you’re not sure where to start, here are a few simple ways to do it with the utmost ease.

Full Loads of Dishes

A staple appliance in most homes across the nation is a dishwasher. Whether this cleaning vessel is new or old, it’s a rather large helping hand, saving you time, but not much water or money. To help cut back on your water consumption (and water bills), it’s best only to run it when it’s completely full. Not only will this help lessen the number of times you have to do the dishes per week, but it will also conserve much more water than you think!

Brush With the Water Off

When you brush your pearly whites, do you let the water run? If so, you’ll want to form a habit of turning off the faucet. Believe it or not, letting the faucet run wastes much more water than you think. The next time you brush your teeth, turn on the faucet to rinse your brush and fill up a rinse cup up with water — then shut the faucet off. Once you’re done brushing, turn the water on and rinse your brush and the sink, then you’ll be good to go!
