Over the last 15 years energy costs have risen 15% and continue to climb. New problems require new solutions. For the cognizant consumer looking for ways to lower their monthly spending, even the simplest changes can save you money and conserve energy.
Washing your money down the drain
Living near the Great Lakes, most people take for granted that we have access to one of the world’s largest freshwater sources. Years ago, the label of “low-flow” was usually met with mixed results. Often times resulting in a lack of shower pressure or multiple flushes of a toilet to remove waist. Low-Flow faucets and shower heads have improved their designs to be comparable to traditional models as far as water pressure, while cutting water usage by 40% or more. For the ambitious do-it-yourselfer, installations are fairly straight forward and the average cost savings pay for themselves in little to no time. For those who prefer to rely on an experienced plumbing technician, give us a call to inquire about the low-flow fixtures available to you.
Flushing your dollars down the hole
Is your toilet starting to age? Is it running constantly? Tired of jiggling the handle? Maybe it’s time to consider a new cost saving option. Older model toilets can use twice as much water as their newer counterparts, which is like flushing money away. Newer models come in a variety of options for reducing water usage, ranging from 1.6 gallons per flush to 1.28 gallons. There’s even dual-flush models that allow you to choose a low power flush for light waste and a full power flush when needed! Take the time to research the model that best fits your specific needs.
