Love Field Plumbing Company Tips for going green

Is your money going down the drain along with hopes of helping the environment?  If you have a leaking toilet, a dripping faucet, or an older poorly maintained water heater, it very well may be.  A dripping faucet and running toilet can waste 150 gallons of water a day. 

As Texans, we know the reality of drought conditions and we understand the importance of conserving water. As careful and environmentally aware consumers, we can be eco-friendly and save money just by properly maintaining current fixtures or replacing older ones with newer, energy efficient ones.

Find out just how much water is used in your household with this online usage calculator at  http://www.csgnetwork.com/waterusagecalc.html
If you are interested in Going Green, check out the following options

There are several options available for eco-friendly consumers to help the environment and your pocket book:

1). Never Run Out of Hot Water Again and get up to a $1,500 tax credit!  If you have an older water heater, replace it with a newer energy star solar water heater or a tankless water heater. These are energy efficient and only heat water when needed with an endless capacity.  

2). If your water heater is in a location far from bathrooms or sinks, think about installing a hot water circulating pump.  This allows hot water to come out of the faucet instantaneously without gallons of cold water going down the drain, wasted.
 
3).  In 1995 the National Energy Policy Act mandated that all new toilets flush with only 1.6 gallons of water in an effort to conserve water.  In the 1980's toilets took over 3 gallons, and in the 60's the average toilet took 5.5 gallons to flush.  If you have an older home with an older toilet, replacing it with a low flow model is another way to Go Green.

4).  Low-flow showerheads and aerators for your faucets are two other ways to help conserve water and save money on your utility bills at the same time.  These can reduce your home water consumption as much as 50% and reduce your energy cost of heating the water by as much as 50% as well.  Showers account for 22% of individual water use in the U.S.

5).  Replace old fixtures with new ones.  Inside, toilets, clothes washers and showers are the largest water users.  In older homes especially there are huge inefficiencies. New appliances and plumbing fixtures can often shave 50% off of your water use.

6).  Consider installing a no-touch faucet.  That's right, just like the bathrooms in many businesses, these can reduce the spread of bacteria and help conserve water.
