Showerheads, Aerators
Water
    Replace your current showerhead with a real water-saving showerhead. Commonly available 2.5 gpm "water-saving" showerheads aren't really water-saving, since this flow-rate is probably what you already have. Putting in a 1.6 gpm showerhead can reduce your water use by over 3,500 gallons a year (assuming a 10 minute daily shower). And this Evolve showerhead has a unique feature that will help to reduce wasted water even before you get in the shower.
     It costs money to heat the water in your house. If the water cools down while it's in the pipes used your hot water heater will have to re-heat the water again. Insulating the hot water pipes leading from your water heater will help maintain the temperature of the heated water, reducing the amount of time you will need to wait for hot water when you turn on a faucet or shower.
If you have a tank-type water heater, adding insulation can also reduce heat loss. For moderately-well insulated tanks, for which you wish to supplement the existing insulation, an less expensive tank wrap will provide value. For under-insulated tanks that are obviously losing heat through the side walls of the tank, use a wrap with a high R-value. ("R-value" is a measure of thermal resistance. The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulating material is going to be.)
