Save on your Utility Bills - Sav-Eco Kits can Help


We are often asked what is the reduction on water and electricity bills when you use the
 Conserv-A-Store Sav-Eco Kits. With California suffering one of the worst droughts in history and the Climate Change discussions more timely, it is important to find every day solutions to help our Planet Earth.

Sav-Eco Kits are the Conserv-A-Store brand of water and energy saving kits that enable a beginner or a Pro to save more water and electricity-Here's a list of the Sav-Eco Water and Energy Saving Kits

It can be difficult to figure an aggregate water use by household since a single male or female who travels a month a year for their job is obviously going to use a lot less water and energy locally than a family of 4 with 2 elementary school age kids. We will just take what we feel is an average yearly use for the products mentioned

The other unknown is your water and electricity rates. Here's a great table on water rates in selected large cities in the USA-click here Obviously places like California are much higher than those areas with more water available

                                                                 
We're not picking on Portland-we felt the chart was instructive


For our Water rate calculations in this article we will use this stat from USA Today and a cost of $40/month or $1.33/day for potable municipal water
For its survey, USA TODAY defined a typical household as one using roughly 7,500 gallons (1,000 cubic feet) a month and having a meter size of about 5/8 inch.

Sewer rates which are often more variable around the US are a very important part of the calculation since these rates are included in water usage by your utility-click here

For our Sewer rate calculations in this article we will use this stat from the Circle of Blue,
Average sewer charges for U.S. households  in 2013 were $US 435 per year, or $36.25 per month or $1.20/day

So we will use Combined Water and Sewer rates of $2.50/day for a family as an average(yes many of you pay more than this and many pay less)

For our calculations let's use one of the Sav-Eco Intermediate Kits Conservastore Part # 06-0010

                                                                 
The Conservastore Intermediate Sav-Eco Kit Part# 06-0010


To observe the water and electricity savings let's study each item in the kit and how it helps you save This kit includes the following items:


- 1pc 1.5 GPM{gallon per minute} Shower head in chrome

A regular head from a home center would put out  2.5gpm of water

Your savings for a 15 minute shower would be 1 gallon per minute x 15 = 15 gallons or a 40% saving

- 1pc 1.25 GPM Shower head in chrome (not pictured)

A regular head from a home center would put out 2.5 gpm of water

Your savings for a 15 minute shower would be 1.25 gallon per minute x 15 = 18.75 gallons or a 50% saving

- 3pcs 1.0 GPM Aerator

A regular faucet aerator from a home center would put out 2.2 gpm of water

Let's say your family uses the kitchen faucet for a combined 10 minutes per day and each of 2 bath faucets for 10 minutes per day as well. This would add up to 30 minutes at a savings of 1.2gpm of 36 gallons or a 45% saving

- 3pcs .5 GPM Aerator

A regular faucet aerator from a home center would put out 2.2 gpm of water

Let's say your family uses the kitchen faucet for a combined 10 minutes per day and each of 2 bath faucets for 10 minutes per day as well. This would add up to 30 minutes at a savings of 1.7gpm of 51 gallons or a 77% saving

- 6pcs 15 Watt(60 watt incandescent equivalent)CFL Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb{only 1 pc pictured} for most home based fixtures or lamps

CFL bulbs have some negatives such as possible mercury dispersal at disposal but if that is handled correctly they can help you save money and put out quality light. Here's a blog we offer on bulb savings
The chart in this blog projects savings of up to 75% using CFL vs conventional incandescents

-1pc Screw in Light Bulb Control(good for CFL or standard light bulbs)-fits the bulbs you get above---cuts down on lite by 4hrs/day

This can be viewed as a security device as well as an electrical saving device

-1pc Digital Timer-125V 8Amps 1000watt capacity- White - 8 Settings/day

Depending on what fixtures are plugged in to this device will determine your money savings. But the device also offers safety since it shows a house that is "Lived in" while your are gone

-1pc Keep the Planet Green reusable bag--use this to go to the market without the need for paper or plastic----In the next 5 years plastic grocery bags will most likely be non legal in most states so why not get ready now

                                                                 
We think Mr Water would buy a Conservastore Sav-Eco Kit if he could

                                                                 


We project that you will at least save half of the water and electrical charges you would have with these products if they are not water and energy saving. The kit will easily pay for itself in 12 months time but if you have a larger family it could be as quickly as 6 months
