Know your Water Use.

It is essential to identify if your water usage is a reasonable amount for the number of people in your household and the size of your property. You can locate your usage on your latest water bill. In general terms, each person should use less than 230L/day. However, there is always room for your family to reduce your water usage, so get creative and make this fun for your family!

Different water retailers charge fluctuation prices, so finding the right provider can save you money. The NSW Government and local councils can offer rebates and assistance with water bills so check with them too.

Install Water-Efficient Products.

At Alan Oxford, we can replace inefficient appliances with state-of-the-art water-efficient technologies. We offer the same-day supply, installation and removal of products to satisfy any customer requirement. Your household water appliances should have at least a 4-star WELS rating to be able to get average water-saving benefits. For example:

  • A water-efficient showerhead can save a family of four around $315 a year.
  • An energy-efficient washing machine, on cold water, can save $124 a year.
  • Heating water accounts for about 25% of household energy use. A simple fix can be keeping household showers to four minutes, or for maximum savings, Alan Oxford’s can install DUX hot water systems, which are known for efficiency and high-quality hot water. 

Fix Leaking Taps and Pipes Immediately.

A dripping tap wastes around 2000 litres of water a month. Leaking water pipes can occur almost everywhere – from newly constructed homes to tall commercial buildings. Sometimes leaks can be concealed, and you can lose a few litres of water an hour from a slow dripping tap. 

Although you may think you can fix a leak, legally you can only do minor work – which is why to be safe you should always call a licensed plumber. At Alan Oxford’s, we offer same-day repairs of products to satisfy any customer requirement.

If your water bill has increased and you can’t understand why you might have a leaky pipe. If you suspect this is the case, it is vital to get to know your water meter. If the numbers on the far-right hand side are turning while there is no water being used in your home, you could very well leak. If you are not sure where your water meter is or how to understand the readings, feel free to ask Alan Oxford’s expert plumbers and electricians on (02) 9894 9623. 

Additional Money-Saving Tips

While this article gives some helpful tips on how to reduce your family’s water bill, it would also be beneficial to note some other ways that Alan Oxford’s Plumbing & Electrical can help you save on your bills. Check out our article on how gas can help you save on your energy bills, choose the best option for your lifestyle and consider the impacts on the surrounding environment.

Significantly investing in a gas cooktop installation not only offers more delicious cooking by providing accurate temperature control but is also more environmentally sustainable as it uses fewer greenhouse gases than an electric oven. It requires less energy to deliver heat than electricity, allowing for a reduction on your energy bills. No matter if you are looking for a gas electrician in Parramatta or a gas electrician in the Hills District, Alan Oxfords’ highly experienced teams are available to help you install, repair and maintain your home’s electricity and water.

Finally, switching your old light fixtures to LED light installations can have a tonne of benefits for your family home. It’s no wonder they are the most popular lighting fixture in Sydney homes. Upgrading to LED downlight installations leads to a 75% reduction on energy bills as they are more energy-efficient and longer-lasting. These downlights are free of toxic chemicals, unlike other conventional alternatives and are less dangerous to touch as they generate less heat. They are also 100% recyclable, which in effect reduces your carbon footprint.
