Save 15% of your home’s hot water use by taking showers instead of baths.
Install low-flow shower heads.
Turn your faucets all the way off. Replace worn out washers.
Attach an aerator to the end of a faucet to reduce the flow rate by about half.
Do as much household cleaning as possible with cold water rather than hot.
Only run full loads in the dishwasher. Use the air dry (or energy saver) option if available. Heat drying is a high energy user.
Rinse dishes in a tub of clean water instead of under hot running water.
Fix any leaky faucets. One constant drip can waste up to 182 litre-sized bottles of water per week. If it’s a hot water faucet that’s leaking, you’re literally sending your energy dollars down the drain.
