You may not realize that the fixtures in your bathroom and kitchen are costing you money in water waste. Older fixtures use much more water than newer fixtures. Thanks to developments in green technology, there are excellent high-efficiency installations for your plumbing that will increase your water savings to a level you never thought possible before.
One of the best times for installing energy-efficient plumbing is during a remodeling project. Whether it’s for a bathroom or a kitchen, plumbing remodeling in Dumont, NJ will benefit from adding fixtures that reduce water waste.
Here are some of the options available to you when you schedule plumbing remodeling for your home that will help you save energy. Call the remodeling professionals at BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, Inc. to find out more details about your choices.
ENERGY STAR-certified dishwashers make a tremendous improvement in how much water and power the use to clean your kitchenware. If you have a dishwasher from pre-1994, you are probably paying an extra $40 each year on your bills than you would if you had an ENERGY STAR model. Just like that, you have paid for detergent for the whole year! Certified dishwashers will also save around 1,300 gallons of water during their service lives.
Whether placed in your bathroom or your kitchen, a low-flow faucet can reduce water usage by 30%. A WaterSense® faucet (manufactured in partnership with the EPA) can reduce the standard faucet’s flow of 2.2 gallons per minute to 1.5 gallons per minute—and without a loss in performance. The average family can save 700 gallons of water per year, which is equivalent to 40 showers, with the help of WaterSense® faucets installed in a home.
Toilets use more water than any appliance in your house: sometimes a third of your annual indoor water use. Depending on the age of your current toilets, you can reduce the water use by 20–60%, which is equal to almost 13,000 gallons of water and savings of $110 each year and $2,200 over the appliance’s lifetime.
All of these appliances require the work of professional plumbers to select and install. When you make them part of your plumbing remodeling in Dumont, NJ, you can have the plumbers handle putting in the new fixtures and appliances so they do the efficient job they are supposed to.
You can trust to the experienced plumbing remodelers at BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, Inc. to help you get the most energy- and water-efficient new bathroom or kitchen possible.
