By installing an aerating shower head, you can cut the water used during your family’s showers by as much as half.
An aerating shower head, one type of low-flow shower head, controls the size and direction of the water droplets that pass through as it injects air into the stream of water. The resulting spray is gentler than the jets that shoot through traditional shower heads. Many people report more relaxing showers after switching to an aerating shower. (A non-aerating low-flow head doesn’t let air into the stream, giving you a more intense water flow.)
Aerating shower heads offer a simple and cost-effective way to help your home’s bottom line — and help the environment. They usually can be swapped in for old heads with little effort. While they come in a range of prices, they’re relatively inexpensive. And besides reducing water costs, by extension aerating shower heads also help reduce gas and electric bills — your water heater doesn’t need to work as hard to keep up with your family’s needs. Those savings add up.
If you’re looking to make an even bigger difference, aerators also can be installed on kitchen, bathroom and other faucets throughout your home.
