The summer time is when water is used the most. Here are a few tips to think about that will help cut down costs on electricity and water.
Water Heater Temperature – Turning down your water heater and turning up your refrigerator temperature when taking vacations will help save you money all around. If you’re not there to use it, why not adjust it a few degrees? It’s an easy money saver.
Don’t Overuse Garbage Disposal – We often find ourselves using the garbage disposal more during the summer. Whether entertaining friends, or relatives visiting for the weekend, the kitchen is used more than usual. Know what you can and cannot put down the disposal as you prepare to entertain your guests.
Fix broken toilets – We know how easy it is to ignore that funny noise your toilet makes after you flush, or an extra jiggle to get a good flush. Ignoring these signs could be wasting gallons of water each day. It is also costing you more money every time you flush. In the Summer, kids are home from school and the house is more active. Now is the best time to correct these toilet issues.
