Who doesn't enjoy a hot shower whether it's on a cold day, or after a stressful day at work? A big chunk of the average family's water use comes from bathing, so installing a low-flow efficient shower head can reduce your water consumption by 50% saving you hundreds a year - and you won't even notice the difference.
Or consider lowering the temperature of your water heater from its default of 140 degrees to 120 degrees - don't worry you will still enjoy a hot shower, but you'll save up to $320 a year! Wow, that's some savings!
