You can reduce your hot water use just by switching to an efficient showerhead.
By installing efficient showerheads, a family of four could save 3,600 gallons of water and $60 in utility costs per year. New, efficient showerheads use 1.5 to 2 gallons of water per minute, while showerheads manufactured before 1994 use 2.75 to 8 gallons per minute.
