A leaking toilet and taps may not seem as big deal but you’d be surprise with how much water it wastes in a day. 200 liters—Is the reported amount of water any leaking sanitary wares and fittings waste in a day. Not only that this waste a natural resource but it also means paying money for water you didn’t even use. So better fix them as soon as you notice any leak.
3. Replace You Lighting
Remember how lighting can make a room feel cramped or spacious depending on how it illuminates the room? Aside from that, it can definitely change a room’s appeal by replacing lighting fixtures. If you’re still using standard fluorescent, how about you change it up with a statement lighting piece using LED or Compact Fluorescent bathroom lighting? This way they don’t only make the room well-lit and fancy but they also help lessen energy consumption.
4. Switch It Off
As with other rooms in the house, make sure to switch lights off when leaving. Encourage other household members to do the same – maybe a friendly reminder on the door? Remember to unplug devices when not in, this will help prevent the so called ‘vampire drain’ of energy. Try to use bathroom gadgets that can be operated from the mains. This uses electricity more efficiently than battery powered devices. However if you do have battery powered items do not leave them plugged in. We recommend letting them go empty every so often before you charge them up.
