When it comes to going green, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Going green with your plumbing will create a healthier environment for you and your family and save you money on utility costs over time. Going “green” means that your wallet will also see more green.
Insulate your pipes.
Insulating your pipes will prevent heat from leaving your home and save you money on your utility expenses. If you look at the pipes in your home and see exposed metal, they aren’t insulated. Ideally, you want to see a smooth foam covering around your pipes; if not, call a plumber ASAP, or you’ll lose money on heating.
Install a Water filtration System
If you install a water filtration system for your whole home, you’ll have cleaner water for your whole family, and your water heater will last longer. Think of it like a Brita but for the entire house. You can eliminate unwanted chemicals in your water without removing beneficial minerals like fluoride.
Switch to Low-Flow, Low-Flush Tech.
Installing low-flow showers and faucets reduces your home water usage by as much as 60%. A low-flush toilet can use up to five times less water per person than a regular toilet. These changes reduce your hot water usage, which is good for the environment and your water bill.
Play the Long Game
While some of these projects might have a higher cost upfront, homeowners who install energy-efficient plumbing win long-term. Your energy bills will be consistently lower, and you’ll pay for less maintenance work.
