Energy saving Shower Heads.
At first glance , this may seem to be a crazy concept…but bear with us…just think about how long you spend in a shower.
With the water and electricity that you use in a normal shower , you could reduce that as a monthly cost by using one of these energy saving shower heads. By using less water (hot and cold) , you would be able to effectively reduce the amount of electricity need to power that hot water , as well as the water usage.
Energy Saving Shower Heads – Some figures.
The savings on this as estimated by ESKOM in 2011 are in the table below
Electricity and Water Savings Table
|Ordinary Shower Head Flow Rate
|Water Savings Litres
|Electricity Savings kWh
|Monetary Savings Rands
|15 litres per minute
|18 litres per minute
|R 1 053.36
|20 litres per minute
|R 1 170.40
The above figures are based on a shower head that reduces the flow to 7 litres per minute and the cost units on electricity and water are based on 2011 figures.
So at present, these savings would be even more than presented here.
Also, if you limit your shower to 7 minutes and setting the geyser at 60°C , and use a low flow shower head that will reduce the flow rate from around 20 litres / minute to between 7 litres per minute and 9 litres per minute , you can save 35 litres of water per shower.
Do the maths on this and you will see that if 4 people shower every day for 30 days , thats 140 litres of water per day,980 litres per week = 3920 litres per month , just by using energy saving shower heads.
On the electricity side , this would amount to at least half of that water saved being hot (1960 litres) and that would also reduce electricity consumption significantly.
Energy saving shower heads – Another effective energy saving idea.
In conjunction with other products like a solar water heater or heat pumps ,energy saving shower heads is another great product that can contribute significantly to your energy saving strategy.
