Did you know that saving water is saving energy, not only in your home, but in your community? As a matter of fact, the Western Virginia Water Authority alone spends nearly $2 million a year on energy costs to treat and pump water your home, and to treat the resulting wastewater. So upgrade your water heater, plug up those leaky faucets, and check some ways to see your savings heat up:

Plug it up!

Your home is probably full of opportunities to reduce water usage simply by checking faucets, toilets, and other areas for leaks. Even a harmless looking drip will cost you big if you let it go for too long. In fact, a single dripping hot water faucet can waste 212 gallons of water a month. That not only increases water bills, but also increases the gas or electric bill for heating the water.

Catch It!

Investing a little in water savings devices can save you gallons of cash, and reusing water that might otherwise have been wasted is basically free money!
