BEND – Although the weather has been cooler lately in Bend we are only a few days away from it heating up again and with the official start of summer rapidly approaching many people who have Central Oregon Car Insurance here will be interested in the best ways to save money each month.
Air Conditioning Weather Only Days Away
With the start of summer more homeowners in Bend and across Central Oregon will be using their air conditioners but the good thing is that they can save more money around their homes than they imagined if they follow these simple tips.
Renovate Your Bathrooms
The first way to save money in any home is to renovate a home’s bathrooms by doing the following:
1. Replace shower heads – You can save money off your monthly water bill by replacing your old shower head with a water saving shower head because, most new shower heads only use fewer than 3 gallons of water per minute compared to 30 gallons of water per minute with older shower heads.
2. Replace Toilets – Besides being unsafe and running the risk of flooding your bathroom as they get older, toilets should be replaced at least every 5 years because, older toilets use up to 4 gallons of water per flush while newer toilets only use about 1/3 less.
3. Replace old water heaters – Last of all, don’t forget to replace old water heaters because, an old water heater can waste up to 6 gallons of water per day while new water heaters deliver water on demand and are more energy efficient than older models.
Don’t forget that you can save money on insurance by bundling your existing car insurance policy with a homeowners or life insurance policy.
