Why a Low Flow Showerhead Saves Money?

Are you considering energy saving showerheads? That’s a good idea. What many home owners don’t realize is that heating water is the second largest consumer of energy in the home, after heating the house itself.

The daily hot shower that we take consumes an amazing amount of hot water. This doesn’t mean you have to stop washing yourself or take shorter showers, but it does mean you should look into an Evolve Showerhead via Water Matrix.

This just means that the showerhead is more efficient. You barely notice a difference, and yet you save lots of money on your energy bill.

A typical showerhead will burn through 2.5 to 3.5 gallons of hot water per minute. Compare this to a low-flow showerhead, which uses only 1.6 to 1.7 gallons per minute.

This adds up to an immense amount of reduced water usage over the lifetime of the showerhead. These savings equate to saved money and reduced CO2 emissions.

You might be wondering if a low-flow showerhead will feel like a fraction of a normal shower, like a trickle of water instead of a powerful stream.

Those older low-flow showerheads felt as if you were showering underneath a trickle of water. Current models use aerators and pressurizers to conserve water without the decrease in the force of the spray of water.
