Turn Your Plumbing System “Green”

Today is Earth Day! That means environmentally conscious consumers are looking to go green and increase the energy efficiency of their homes. Mother Nature and homeowners are benefiting from the energy conservation movement. “Going green” can even put some green dollar bills back in your pocket. No matter what your budget is, there are adjustments you can make to increase the energy efficiency of your home.

Insulate Your Pipes

Looking for an easy and inexpensive way to increase the energy efficiency of your home? Insulate the pipes that comprise your plumbing system. Insulated pipes retain temperature and heat more efficiently than traditional pipes.

The Pipe Dream

Have you been dreaming of a new kitchen, laundry room or bathroom? Always consider your plumbing system will be affected when remodeling. When pipes are close together, water travels faster to its destination. It is a good idea to keep these three rooms in close proximity; as they are the core of your plumbing system. This simple tip can save you a great deal of water and energy.

Go for Low-Flow

Don’t you wish you could just flush all your troubles away? With a low-flow toilet, you can. Low-Flow toilets are more energy efficient than traditional toilets. Traditional toilets use 5 to 7 gallons of water per flush, while low-flow toilet use 1 to 2 gallons of water per flush. Overtime, it can really start to add up.
