Your business or commercial space comes with a lot of expenses. Some of those expenses grow as you grow–and electricity and water usage are two of them.
Battling rising costs as your staff and your output expand can be difficult, however. Finding ways to save money and reduce expenses can help you stay afloat and can make your departments and expenditures more lean.
One of the first ways to save money on your water and utilities is to upgrade your faucets to models that have aerators.
Aerators reduce the amount of water that is released through the faucet, without reducing pressure or impact. Aerators work by infusing the water from your faucets with braids of air, reducing the amount of water you’re using without reducing the surface area that the water can reach.
Toilets use a ton of water–and this can get costly in a business or commercial space where employees are using them all day long. It can also be wasteful, especially if one of your toilets runs all day without being addressed by maintenance.
If the toilets in your buildings have been there since the 1990s, they most likely aren’t “low-flow,” and could be costing you a lot of money.
Due to legislation passed in 1994, the mandatory maximum of water that can be used during a flush by all new toilets is 1.6 gallons, significantly less than full-flush toilets.
You could save hundreds of dollars a year by switching out your old toilets for low-flush models.
If you’re unaware that one of your toilets is running, that a faucet is leaking or a pipe is broken, you’re hemorrhaging money every day.
Investing in regular maintenance can help you stay on top of small problems so they don’t become big problems. Maintenance can also help ensure that your water usage is where it should be, and advise you on ways to save money and water.
