Bringing Savings Home: WaterSense Labeled Homes

Building Certifying Promoting Buying

By now you know you can find products and services for both inside and outside the home that are high performing and water-efficient – just by looking for the WaterSense label. But the water savings don't end there. Now you can bring it all together with a WaterSense labeled home.

WaterSense labeled homes are designed to reduce residential water use indoors and out — allowing you and your family to enjoy all the comforts of home while using less water and energy, and spending less money on utility bills. In fact, compared to a typical home, a WaterSense labeled home can save a family of four 50,000 gallons of water a year or more! That's enough to wash 2,000 loads of laundry and could amount to utility bill savings of up to $600 each year.
