We all want to save money on our water heating bill. Therefore, a geyser service is very essential for conserving hot water. On average, the water heater bill accounts for 10-15% of the homeowner’s total energy bill. Leaky faucets, long hot showers, and ineffective appliances are a few common reasons that add to your energy bills and waste a lot of water. A water heater is very essential for a comfortable life for cleaning dishes, cleaning clothes and bathing purposes, etc. But it can also result in liters of wastewater and increases your monthly bill. Here are a few steps which you can take to save water and your utility bill:
1.Dont run hot water unnecessarily
There are few wasteful common habits we all have like leaving the water running while brushing your teeth or washing your face or while doing the dishes and much more. If you become careful about conserving water, a lot of water can be saved every day by following a few common practices such as turning off the water when not in use.
2. Lower the thermostat
It is advisable to reduce the thermostat on your water heater to 120-degree F. You can save up to 5 % of your water heating cost for every 10-degree F reduced. If your water geyser thermostat does not have a temperature reading, use the min-max dial and avoid keeping the dial pointed to the max,
3. Fix leaks
A dripping pipe can waste a lot of water and money. It also seems like a nuisance because of the irritating sound. Therefore, fix any leaks as soon as possible. If you are facing water heater leakage issues at your home or looking forward to buying an AMC plan or get your geyser service done, download the OneDios app today.
4. Drain the sediment from your tank
The sediments which get built up in your water heater over time should be drained out regularly. You can also download the OneDios app and raise a geyser service request to drain the sediments from your tank. The sediment makes your geyser work harder and also reduces its lifespan.
5. Use cold water
You can also use cold water for laundry loads and rinsing purposes.
6. Install low-flow pipes
The latest shower heads and faucets use less water as compared to the old models. For reducing water consumption, a low flow faucet can be installed. Showerheads and pipes, if without low flow, should be replaced with the ones having low-flow.
7. Use your Dishwasher effectively
By using a dishwasher effectively, one can save up to 50 liters of water. You can save water by running the dishwasher with full loads, selecting shorter wash cycles, and initiating the booster heater. You can also consider upgrading a new dishwasher if your budget permits it.
8. Reduce your shower time
Many of us spend a long time while taking a shower. A hot long shower consumes a lot more hot water than is generally required, therefore it is important to reduce your shower time. One can also turn off the water while shaving or shampooing or applying soap to your body.
9. Install a timer
Installing a timer that switches off your water heater when not in use or the night, helps in saving a lot of energy. This will even increase the life of your water heater. The outdated models are always running, which wastes a lot of electricity. Download the Onedios app and call for a geyser service expert to install a timer on your traditional water heater.
10. Replace old equipment
It is advisable to replace your dishwasher or water heater or other old equipment whose life is more than 10 years. Replace them with an energy-efficient model or the latest one.
