Save Money by Conserving Water

April 5, 2016 | Blog

South Texas is no stranger to droughts — but drought or no drought, you can still save money by conserving water use in your home. Here are a few tips that will help to slash bills year-round, and be a good member of your community during the dry times.

Install low-flow faucets and showerheads

Not all faucets and showerheads are created equal. In fact, by changing them out for low-flow fixtures, you can save gallons of water for every minute that they run. Many of these fixtures are designed to aerate your water as it flows, increasing the surface area while decreasing the actual amount of water used – this makes for a flow that feels as rich as a higher-water-use fixture, while still helping you to conserve water in your home.

Upgrade to efficient appliances

Appliance efficiency isn’t just a matter of energy use. When you upgrade to high-efficiency washing machines and dishwashers, you can also cut down on your water use. If you don’t have these appliances in your home, consider installing them; washing dishes in a dishwasher is more water-efficient than washing them by hand, and choosing a washing machine that meets your home’s needs lets you avoid using commercial machines which may use more water than you need.

Switch to a tankless water heater

Tank water heaters store a great deal of hot water in a central location, and when a faucet is turned on elsewhere in the house, the hot water has to push out all the cool water that’s already in the pipes between the heater and the faucet. Over the course of days, weeks, months, and years, that wasted cool water can really add up. Installing tankless water heaters next to appliances, faucets, and showerheads that see frequent use cuts down on water waste.

Great Company

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
