Use High Efficiency Plumbing Fixtures
Nobody is going to tell you that you should be skipping showers or not brushing your teeth in the morning, just so that you can save water. In these modern times, we are used to a certain amount of luxury and comfort. Thankfully, though, living in these modern times also means that we have access to modern technology. If you are serious about using water in your home more efficiently, then you are wise to consider the installation of high efficiency plumbing fixtures throughout your home.
There are a lot of different types of high efficiency plumbing fixtures to consider. In some instances, homeowners may choose to replace their toilets with low–flow models. This can greatly reduce the amount of water that is used throughout the day, each and every time that you flush the toilet in your home. You may also want to consider using a low–flow shower head. Some homeowners may be hesitant to take advantage of such products, as they worry about the effect that this reduced flow–rate will have on their water pressure. However, by using aeration in its operation, a low–flow shower head keeps the pressure up, while cutting water usage down.
Take Advantage of Water Recirculating
While most homeowners have probably at least heard of low–flow and high efficiency plumbing fixtures, fewer are likely familiar with the concept of water recirculating. This is too bad, as recirculating water in one’s home is actually one of the most effective ways in which to reduce energy expenditure and water use therein. It’s actually a pretty simple concept.
In a plumbing system, the cold water left in pipes between the water heater and the faucet or fixture is typically just drained out of the system, meaning that both that water and the energy that was used to heat it before it cooled is wasted. When you use a water recirculating system, though, the water that has been left in the pipes is pumped back to the water heater. It can then be reheated from its current temperature, saving energy and water in the process. Call to learn more about your potential water and energy conservation options.
