The average person uses about 100 gallons of water each day. This includes every time you turn on your sink or shower, flush the toilet, or wash your clothes and dishes, even water the lawn or your houseplants. Also can’t forget your indirect water usage—that’s the water used to provide electricity to your home and water that helps produce the food you eat. When you make even one small change to your home’s plumbing to make it more “green,” you can make a difference on the environment (and your bank account)!Tankless Water HeatersTankless water heaters are one of the best things you can use to conserve energy! The average tankless water heater can save you hundreds of dollars per year on your utility bills. Standard water heaters are full of hot water and it keeps it hot at all times- even when you are not using it. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, only heat water when you need it. Most tankless water heaters are considered 95% efficient, whereas standard water heaters are only 70% efficient. That means 95 cents out of every dollar spent with your tankless water heater goes toward actually heating the water and only 5% is wasted, unlike the 30% with a tank water heater. Tankless water heaters take up less space, give you unlimited hot water AND they are more efficient. Win-win-win!

A leak is often the sign of something bigger, and some types of pipes are more prone to leaks than others?If you think your drippy faucet is not a big deal… think again! According to the EPA, a dripping faucet that drips once per second wastes over 3,000 gallons in just one year. That is as much water as almost 200 showers! When you notice your plumbing system is leaking, even just a little bit, it’s best to have the leak repaired. You could save a ton of water!If your home uses the city water supply, your water has chlorine in it. Chlorine helps ensure your family has clean water, but unfortunately, chlorine degrades your faucets, toilets, and other fixtures. This can cause faucets to drip and toilets to run, which can waste a lot of money. A lot of our customers opt to install a chlorine removal system to filter out chlorine from your water, protecting your plumbing.

Every little change you can make to your home’s heating, air conditioning, and plumbing system can make a huge difference. Any energy or water saved lessens the impact we have on the environment, leaving the world a better place for future generations. Whether you choose to install low flush toilets, tankless water heater, or energy saving faucets there are tons of options to make your home green!Ask us what improvements we can make to your home!
