Looking for ways to be more energy efficient in your bathroom? We compiled a list of 7 ways to help conserve energy!


  • Stop the leaks! Repairing leaky faucets & toilets will help you avoid wasting hundreds of gallons of water each week!
  • Turn on the fan! Don’t forget to turn on the fan in your bathroom! These ventilation fans help keep mold out of your bathroom!
  • Out with the old & in with the new! Renovating your bathroom? Say goodbye to your OLD toilet that uses 3.5 to 7 gallons of water and hello to your new standard toilet that uses about 1.6 gallons of water per flush!
  • Turn off the water! You can save up to 8 gallons of water by turning off the water in the morning & at night while brushing your teeth!
  • Switch to LED bulbs STAT! Replace any incandescent bulbs in your bathroom with LED bulbs that use less energy and will last as much as 25 times longer!
  • Turn down the heat! Water heating accounts for about 18% of the energy consumed in your home! Turn down your water heater temp to help conserve energy!
  • Upgrade that shower head! Replace that old showerhead with a new energy efficient showerhead that will use less energy and give you the same amount of pressure!
