May 16, 2023
As a leading plumbing maintenance and repair company in the Las Vegas Valley, Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing knows that we all must do our part to conserve water. Here are some easy ways to limit your water usage around the home:
- Install low-flow shower heads, faucets and toilets.
Low-flow shower heads, faucets and toilets can be purchased at your local home improvement store and installed by our Yes! Plumbing professionals. These fixture upgrades can help significantly reduce water usage around the house, which can translate to savings for your wallet.
- Check your water bill for any instances of abnormal water usage or change.
Leaks in your home’s plumbing can cause water waste, sometimes without you noticing. Keep watch on your monthly utility bill for any abnormalities in your water usage, which could be an indication of a plumbing leak. Consult with our Yes! Plumbing professionals if you have any concerns.
- Make sure to run full laundry and dishwasher loads only.
Making sure you only run full loads of laundry and dishes can reduce the number of load cycles, translating to a reduced amount of water and electricity usage each month. Also consider upgrading appliances. Older washing machines typically use 40 to 45 gallons per load, while newer, high-efficiency washers typically use 14 to 25 gallons per load.
