Green Tip

Every living organism needs water to survive, so reported and anticipated water shortages around the country and the world make conservation of this precious resource more important than ever. An inexpensive and effective way to conserve water in your home is to make sure that aerators are installed in all kitchen and bathroom faucets. At a cost of about $5, an aerator limits the water flow through the faucet by mixing in air. And if it is hot water coming out of the faucet, that also means that the water heater doesn’t need to work as hard.
