The amount of water your plumbing fixtures use could contribute to waste. Did you know that older homes may have fixtures that use almost twice as much water as currently required by the Energy Policy Act of 1992? For example, prior to this act, showerheads could use up to 5 gallons per minute, while those sold after 1992 had a limit of 2 gpm. If you have an older home that you want to make more water-efficient, call us at Best Service Plumber – a Plumbing Concepts Company in Southern California – for installation of new fixtures in your kitchen and bathroom.
Water Efficient Fixtures
Almost every part of your home that handles water has a more water-efficient model. For instance, low-flow showerheads offer 1.6 gpm. Low-flush toilets with dual flushes give you the option of using low-flow or a higher water amount for extra flushing power.
To be more energy-efficient, you can also consider tankless water heaters. These designs heat water on-demand, so you don’t have to waste gas or electricity maintaining hot water inside a tank.
Professional Installation Is Key
When you replace your older less-efficient plumbing fixtures with new models, the installation process is critical. Without correct installation, the new fixtures may leak, reducing their efficiency.
If you need new plumbing fixtures installed, contact us at Best Service Plumber – a Plumbing Concepts Company – to get the job done well the first time. With the knowledge and tools to do the installation properly, our plumbers ensure that you don’t need to worry about the finished product. Your newly installed plumbing fixtures can help lower your water bills while reducing your home’s impact on the environment.
