Using Less Water Saves You Money, Energy, and Even Your Plants!

    Anywhere from 97% to 99.5% of the water taken up by the roots of a plant ends up being released back into the air. During this process, a physical change in the state, or phase, of water occurs—from liquid water to water vapor. Implementing a watering system that uses less water on average effectively reduces the amount of water getting into the plants between 50% and 60%, which in turn reduces the overall amount of latent heat in the system. By reducing the amount of latent heat by 50% reduces the total heat of an air conditioning system by as much as 25%.
