Professional Tips for Going Green

Earth Day is fast approaching. Having been celebrated for the last 45 years, it is a great way to provide awareness on energy efficiency, climate change, and sustainability. As a homeowner, you can still enjoy all your home appliances by integrating green living into your daily life. The problem is finding ways to go green, fortunately, there are several ways to be eco-friendly in your home.

Here are some tips that will help you go green.

Get a water filtration system

While drinking bottled water may seem like a safe option, it only pollutes the environment by contributing to multiple plastic bottles in the landfills. By filtering your tap water, you can enjoy high-quality drinking water without burdening the environment with excess plastic. save-water_480

Most parts of the country have aging urban infrastructures meaning that residential pipes may be corroded, allowing impurities to seep into the leaking pipes. Investing in a quality water filtration system makes sense for you and your family.

Invest in a tankless water heater

Tankless water heaters are small and can deliver 2-3 gallons of hot water on demand. This means that you will never run out of hot water. Energy.gov estimates that a household that uses 40 gallons of water daily can enjoy 24-34% more energy efficiency than traditional storage tank water heaters.

Tankless water heaters have a 99% thermal energy efficiency rating. This means that this energy gets into the appliance and comes out as heat.

Moreover, most of these heaters can be installed at the point of use, which reduces the amount of water that is wasted when you’re waiting for it to heat up. While these tankless water heaters may be expensive, they will pay themselves off quickly.

You cannot simply go green by installing a piece of equipment, but you can make small targeted improvements with your water and electricity use to ensure that you have a sustainable home.

Install eco-friendly fixtures

The plumbing industry has gone through massive transformation thanks to advanced technology. You can now find eco-friendly plumbing fixtures that are stylish, competitively priced and produced better than normal fixtures.

Most of us have a habit of flushing the toilet numerous times a day. This means that you could be using over 180 gallons of water a day. Instead, opt for a dual-flush toilet that gives you the option of flushing for solid or liquid waste.

When it comes to going green this year, you can make it easier by going for eco-friendly plumbing fixtures, get a water filtration system, and invest in a tankless water heater.
