In today’s economy we all want to save money, right? We’re always looking at ways in which we can cut back on our spending in order to keep a few dollars more in our bank account. Most of us will usually start off with cutting back on the luxuries like going out to eat dinner, going to the movies and so on. However the reality is most of us don’t look at ways to cut back on our utilities spending and just accept each month’s bill as given.
The thing is, cutting back on our utility spending not only will save us money, but it also helps the environment. If we’re using less electricity, gas and water then it means less of a drain on those resources.
Watch the video above to get some great tips on how save water at home:
- Repair Water Leaks In Your Toilet: One way to detect if you have a water leak in your toilet is to simply add a few drops of food coloring into the bowl, and seeing if the water changes color over a period of time. If it does, it means you have a water leak, and water is simply pouring straight down the drain.
- Repair Dripping Faucets: Once you find you have a dripping faucet get it repaired as soon as you can. A dripping faucet can waste thousands of gallons of water over the course of the year, which could translate to hundreds of dollars coming out of your bank account.
- Use An Energy Efficient Shower Head: Using an energy efficient (or low-flow) shower head will also save a lot of money. Basically these shower heads use air flow to maintain the shower pressure, but pushes out less water during the time period you’re under the shower.
