Whatever your view on ecology, ‘green’ issues or saving the planet, the facts speak for themselves, and that means that we really need to start thinking about conservation and what we can do as individuals to help with that.
If the ‘green’ issues aren’t a strong enough argument for you, think of money saving – the more you can do to conserve energy and water, the lower your utility bills will be.
Reducing your water usage is an easy way to start on the road to helping the planet, in a lot of cases, you may not even realize that you’re doing your bit, it may not affect your daily life at all. Things like dual flush toilets use approximately 8,000 gallons of water per year, compare that with an older style toilet that can use as much as 30,000 gallons (yes, thirty thousand) of water per year.
A tankless water heater is a great way of cutting down on energy usage – only heating the water that you actually want to use at any one time, not heating up a whole tank (that you may or may not use) and then paying further to keep that water hot. Capable of supplying multiple points (kitchen, bathroom and utility faucets for example), it can lower your energy bill by some margin!
Leaks and Drips
If you have a leaky faucet, you could be flushing away your hard earned money; if you had to stand there and throw a nickel into the garbage for each and every drip, you’d soon look at getting it fixed. That is effectively what’s happening.
