Reducing domestic water consumption could help lower bills from energy suppliers as around £200 of the average annual gas bill is accounted for by heating water.
Much of the 150 litres of water used by individuals each day goes to waste and if water is used more efficiently homeowners could find they make substantial savings on their energy bills, reports the South Wales Echo.
Carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to those produced by 600,000 cars could be saved if every homeowner in the UK reduced their water use by five per cent, while the improved efficiency could also make it easier to access cheap energy bills.
Homeowners could also choose to insulate their homes to reduce bills and carbon emissions, while installing energy-saving light bulbs and buying newer, more efficient white goods could also be beneficial.
The government plans to secure Britain's energy future and eventually reduce prices with the development of infrastructure focussing on nuclear power and renewable energy, with EDF set to have the first new nuclear reactor online by 2017.
