Simple Things You Can Do to Save on Monthly Bills

Looking for easy ways to save on your monthly heating and water bills? Here are our favourite tips.


Fix Minor Leaks Immediately

You know that tiny leak you decided to ignore because you don’t want to deal with it? It’s costing you money. Even a minor leak wastes a significant amount of water. Minor leaks are also likely to turn into major issues later, so you’re not only saving money on your monthly bills when you have leaks fixed, you’re also saving on future plumbing repair costs.


Install Aerators and Low-Flow Showerheads

Aerators are devices that you can have installed in your faucets to add air to your water stream as it comes out of the faucet. This results in the use of less water without a reduction in pressure, so your experience won’t change but you’ll see your bill costs going down.

You can also install low-flow showerheads to reduce the amount of hot water you use on a daily basis and reduce your monthly costs. Low-flow showerheads can decrease your hot water usage by up to 40%.

Take Shorter Showers

Make it a goal to shave at least a few minutes off of your daily shower. If you focus on making it a quick shower, you’ll be surprised how little time you really need. You can also save water and money by turning off the shower while you get sudsed up, then turn it back on to rinse.


Turn the Water off When You Brush

Many people leave the water running while brushing their teeth, but if you turn it off while you brush, you save a significant amount of water. Do the same while you wash your face for a more efficient morning/nighttime routine.


Upgrade to Efficient Appliances

If you have older appliances, they could be costing you a lot of money! As appliances like boilers and hot water tanks age, they run less and less efficiently, which means they need to use more energy in order to do their job. Upgrading to new, efficient appliances is an investment that will save you a bundle of money in the long term.
