Make Plumbing More Eco Friendly For Earth Day
There is a lot that homeowners can do to contribute to a better and cleaner world with eco-friendly plumbing. For example, using water-saving appliances, energy-efficient home options, and piping materials that are best for insulation can make the world a better, cleaner, and more sustainable place.
There are so many options and benefits to going green this Earth Day. Not only does it help the earth and all the animals and living things on it, but going ‘green’ is also a money-saving adventure!
Homeowners should consider investing in water-saving appliances. There are so many to choose from, and quite a few are affordable options. When homeowners are confused and overwhelmed, they should contact an expert plumbing contractor that can inform them of their many options.
There are two very common water-saving appliances, low water usage washing machines and water-saving toilets. The water-saving washing machine uses the smallest amount of water needed to clean a load of laundry. Homeowners can take this a step further by using plastic-free laundry detergent and cleaners.
What about water-saving toilets? These toilets use automatic flushing and various other features to save homeowners water, resulting in a lower monthly bill!
Energy Efficient Home Options
It is becoming more and more common to see energy-efficient water heaters in a home. They are cost-effective, easy to install, and a better water heater for a house. Energy-efficient water heaters work very well to heat water while using less energy.
An energy-efficient water heater is set at a controlled schedule that only uses the amount of energy specified. This is similar to the eco-friendly toilet discussed above, which is also popular. One example of an energy-efficient water heater is a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters save energy because they heat water on the way to fixtures instead of keeping a large tank of water continuously hot.
Even a small change such as the insulation wrapped around the water line and waste line pipes can make all the difference in being energy conscious. Some homeowners should contact a professional to insulate their water line and pipes with a material that traps heat and cold temperatures. This can save money in the long run.
Not all insulation is made the same way. Experts recommend looking for insulation that easily wraps around and is also inexpensive to purchase since pipes are long and require the entire outside surface to be covered. This small change can make all the difference! One type of material is foam-like and completely bendable, while the other is perfect for smaller spaces and is a tape that wraps around pipes lightly.
