Water Conservation

Water Conservation: Oakland, CA

With our recent drought in Oakland, CA it is no wonder that water conservation has come to the fore of many conversations. If you live on a well or are just a concerned citizen about the availability of such a precious resource, water, gives us a call! We have several ways to lower your water consumption like low flow toilets, shower heads, and rain water harvesting.

My hot water temperature seems to be higher than what I think I need. How can I conserve energy, yet also be sure that there is an adequate amount of hot water?

Most people are comfortable with their hot water set at 120°F, which is also the new standard that manufacturers use when pre-setting it at the factory. If you have an older model (gas or electric), set the thermostat at medium.
