Can Changing Your Showerhead Save You Money?
Showering is one of the top methods of water usage in the home. A standard shower head uses 2.5 gallons of water per minute.
But did you know that switching to a low-flow or WaterSense labeled showerhead could save you money?
A WaterSense showerhead is independently certified to meet water efficiency and performance criteria established by the Environmental Protection Agency. A high efficiency showerhead can save up to four gallons of water every time you shower. The EPA estimates that the average family can save enough electricity to power a home for 13 days each year, just from the energy savings created by switching to a more efficient showerhead.
Some utility companies even offer rebates and special promotions to homeowners that switch to water saving technologies (including showerheads).
