(PRWEB UK) 10 July 2013
According to Luton Today on July 7, the report, which was conducted by the Energy Saving Trust Foundation in partnership with other organisations, found that homes across Great Britain use a total of nine billion litres of water each day.
The report presents findings from studying over 86,000 households in Britain and the results serve to highlight the amount of water used by households. The report found that showers use the most water in the home and, with the average shower lasting 7.5 minutes, the report states that reducing that time by a minute could save households £3.6 million on bills each year.
With the report, Energy Saving Trust is encouraging households to follow simple steps to help reduce their water usage. They suggest installing an eco-shower head to a mixer or power shower, washing clothes at 30C and when boiling a kettle only boiling water that is needed. Energy Saving Trust estimate that an average household could save £22 on their energy bills and those on a water meter could save an added £13 by implementing these changes.
Water strategy manager at Energy Saving Trust, Andrew Tucker, told Luton Today that:
“Following three simple steps from the Energy Saving Trust will help reduce the energy and water bills of consumers – and stop their money spiralling down the plughole.”
We Fix Now provide plumbers in Forest Hill, throughout London and the surrounding counties, and the specialists at the company were interested in this recent report. A spokesperson for the company commented on the report:
“This report is useful in highlighting the amount of water households use on average and how this amount can be reduced by taking simple steps. Taking shorter showers, only running washing machines on a full load and boiling a kettle with only the water that is needed all help to reduce unnecessary water usage. Another tip is to regularly check for leaking pipes and taps. Checking for leaks could help save you significant sums of money and if you think you have a leak, don’t hesitate to contact a qualified plumber immediately.”
