Here on the Community there have been fantastic discussions about increasing our homes' energy efficiency - including switching to LED
lights, debating about electric boilers
, and what temperature we use to clean our clothes
Saving water can also be a fantastic way to save energy, reduce your carbon footprint
- and may become increasingly important in the face of hotter Summers!
Of course we're all at home a lot more at the moment due to COVID-19 so small, simple ways of reducing water consumption could see an even bigger impact right now
These include turning the tap off while you brush your teeth, fixing any dripping taps around the house (these can waste up to 15 litres of water
a day🤯) and investing in a water-efficient shower head.
It doesn't just have to be indoors either - as we move into Summer and spend more time outside, going back to basics and using a watering can
instead of a hose is a quick and efficient way to instantly reduce water waste.
Have you found ways of reducing your water usage?
It'd be great to share any tips and tricks to save water and with it, save energy
