Ways To Save Water in Your Commercial Building

Owning a commercial property comes with a lot of expenses, and many of them aren't completely under your control. Unless everyone who works in your building in Lafayette, LA is committed to water conservation, your utility bill may be higher than you expect. You can still take some steps, however, to address water issues and reduce the overall amount used.


Energy Efficient Appliances
Start by simply choosing appliances that require less water usage. Check the energy rating on several appliances in your break room and throughout the building:

  • Refrigerator
  • Dishwasher
  • Water fountain


When you look for ways to reduce consumption at the source, you can lower your usage overall.


Touch-Free Upgrades
The public restroom is probably your number one culprit for water waste. You may have lost count of the number of times you have walked in to discover that a faucet has been left on or a toilet is still running. The cost of touch-free options or another water upgrade may seem daunting at first, but they are likely to pay for themselves within months by helping you overcome the water issues that lead to high utility bills.


Meter Monitoring
You should always know how much water you are using in your building. Monitoring your water meter is the best way to catch a troublesome area. It's also a good idea to keep your outside irrigation and your internal water usage on separate meters so that you can more easily identify where the waste is coming from.


Quick Mitigation
If you discover that your meter is running higher than usual, this could be an indication that you have a leak somewhere. Call your plumber to fix the problem and contact water damage specialists to mitigate any issues caused by the leak.
Keeping track of your building's water issues is only one way to lower your utility bill. By employing multiple strategies, you can reduce your water usage and cost.
