Efficient Showerheads

Shower in the Savings

Using efficient showerheads is one of the most inexpensive and effective ways to reduce hot water use. Using less hot water saves on both your energy bill and your water/sewer bill.

Standard showerheads use 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm), while WaterSense rated showerheads use no more than 2 gpm. They are independently certified to use at least 20% less water and perform just as well or better than standard models.

Electric water heating is generally one of the biggest contributors to your electric bill, using a WaterSense rated efficient showerhead can provide significant savings per year. In fact, by upgrading to a WaterSense rated showerhead the average household can save $100 per year with a 1.5 gpm showerhead, or $50 per year with a 2.0 gpm showerhead.
