Save Money with Lower Utility Bills
Potentially Increase Your Home’s Value
Enjoy A Yard with Less Maintenance
Although nearly 70% of the globe is covered by ocean, fresh water is a limited and precious resource. Optimizing your household water usage can help reduce the strain on your local water supply – and, the strain on your wallet. By investing in water conservation improvements, homeowners can improve their long-term water efficiency and usage.
Indoor and Outdoor Water Efficiency Improvements
Leveraging conservation services can help you accomplish a vast range of projects. Whether you’re looking to reduce yard maintenance by adding drought-tolerant landscaping or to stop watching money go down the drain due to a plumbing leak, check out these eligible indoor and outdoor water efficiency improvement projects.
Drought Tolerant Landscaping
Drought-Tolerant Landscaping or Xeriscaping principles can be used in any region to help conserve water. These include: selecting plants that flourish in your regional climate, grouping plants with similar water needs together, reducing usage of turf grasses that require more water, and mulching.
Plumbing and Fixtures
Adding energy-efficient plumbing and fixtures to your home can help you use less power and less water, which could mean lower utility bills. Tankless water heaters, high efficiency toilets, low-flow shower heads and aerators are just a few of the ways you can save.
Patios & Walkways
These are man-made hardscape features that are incorporated into landscape architecture such as concrete or flagstone patios, wooden decks, and stone pavers. In areas where drought is common, hardscaping will minimize water use or even allow you to go water-free.
Since grass consumes the most water, reducing or eliminating how much grass we have in our landscapes can make a significant impact on water use. One of the most effective measures homeowners can take to save water is to replace natural grass with artificial turf.
Drip irrigation systems can be calibrated to deliver just the right amount of water to keep plants and trees healthy-no more and no less. Besides being harmful to plants and trees, overwatering is a waste of precious water. You can support the environment and minimize your water bills with a well-designed drip irrigation system.≤
Instant water heater
These units are available in tank-type or tankless models. They save water by not having to run water from a central water heater every time you want hot water, and save energy by not having to keep the water in a central water heater hot 24-hours a day. The convenience of not having to wait for water to heat up is an added bonus.
