Energy Saving Tip - Get Ahead

This weeks energy is to get a head. If you’ve got a shower that takes hot water straight from your boiler or hot water tank (rather than an electric shower), fit a water efficient shower head. This will reduce your hot water usage while retaining the sensation of a powerful shower.

A water efficient shower head could save a four person household as much as £75 a year on gas for water heating, as well as a further £120 on water bills if they have a water meter.

This Calculation is based on the assumption that a family of 4 takes 20 showers a week and replaces a 13 litre/minute power-shower head with a 7.7 litre / min water efficient shower head, and the family are charged £2.97 per cubic meter of water used (includes sewage charge).
