It was in the 1920s that showers became simpler to use and by the late 1960s and early 1970s showers became more popular and commonplace. Today, many homes don’t even have a bath, they only have a shower. It may not seem much has changed when it comes to showers, but innovation has happened and much of it is about saving water or using less water for a better shower.
Energy and Water Saving Showers
With showers accounting for almost 20% of residential water use, reducing the amount of water used is becoming a priority and slowly but surely this is happening. Using less water means using less hot water which means using less electricity or energy to heat the water. This means there are savings in more than one area and of course your energy bills will drop.
Many people would be fooled into believing that using less water means a less satisfying shower. They are wrong, modern energy-saving showerheads use clever airflow technology that saves water but also ensures that real shower feel remains, some people say that the shower experience is even better! Lowes has a tremendous range of affordable, energy-saving showerheads that are easy to install.
