We hear lots of talk these days about going green to protect the environment. However, going green does more than protect the environment. It also saves money for homeowners by lowering their utility bills. It’s a winning combination when saving money contributes to saving the environment as well.
Homeowners can do their part by replacing older plumbing fixtures with new energy efficient ones or at least fixing leaks and drips. Just one drip per second from a leaky faucet wastes about five gallons of water a day, so fixing that little leak can make a big difference in conserving water. Only about one percent of the water on our planet is useable, so we should do everything we can to eliminate wasting our supply of the precious resource.
People who want to start going green in a small way can begin by installing low-flow shower heads and faucets as well as water-efficient toilets. Even small steps can add up over time to make a positive impact on the environment and their bank accounts by reducing energy consumption.
To make a bigger impact, nany homeowners are choosing to install tankless water heaters in their homes. They are much smaller than traditional water heaters because they do not require storage of hot water. They heat the water as it is used and provide an endless supply of hot water when needed. Since water does not sit in 30 or 40-gallon tanks heating and re-heating to maintain a certain temperature, the energy savings can be significant. Because water does not have to run for awhile before it gets hot, a substantial amount is saved. While normal water heaters run out of hot water after a few showers or loads of laundry, that does not happen with tankless water heaters. Therefore, many people prefer them for the convenience of having as much hot water as they want when they want it, and the money-saving feature is a bonus for them.
