Looking for ways to be more green around the house? And maybe save some green at the same time? Consider some of these options for your home.
Replace your water heater. That old behemoth in your basement that was there when you moved in 10 years ago is far less energy efficient than the models on the market now. We can help you find the most efficient one for your home. Or ask us about a tankless water heater, which uses less energy, supplies endless hot water and takes up much less space.
Install low-flow plumbing fixtures. Older faucets and toilets waste too much water. You can install flow reducers on your faucets, but a better option is to install new water-saving fixtures to replace the old ones. The new low-flow or dual flush toilets lower the amount of water used per flush from 4–6 gallons to 1.5 gallons. That’s a substantial difference!
Reuse your Rainwater– Collect rainwater that falls on your roof in a rain barrel. Then water your plants and grass for free!
Install a Whole House Water Filter to eliminate the chemicals and toxins from your water, which extends the life of heaters and plumbing fixtures because harmful microorganisms aren’t attaching to them.
