If you’re feeling the pinch when it comes to your utility bills the solution might be in your plumbing. When people think of energy-efficiency they think of switching off their heaters or turning off the television at the wall. The truth is, water efficiency can save you plenty of money in plenty of different ways. If you’re looking for ways to save money, make a splash by redoing your bathroom with plumbing fixtures. Bathroom Plumbingfixtures are exchangeable devices that connect to your plumbing system to deliver and drain water. These clever little devices can save you lots! Here are 5 great ways plumbing fixtures can save you money.
If you’re thinking of redoing your bathroom or any other plumbing around your home, consider adding a sink fixture. Sink fixtures can increase the water efficiency of all of your taps. Sink taps are used for cleaning dishes, washing your hands, rinsing clothes and much more. Water efficient sink fixtures like aerators and flow controllers will help to reduce the water usage on your taps without affecting performance, saving you money on your water bill.
LOW FLOW TAPS
If your taps are old or leaking then replacing your taps altogether might be the answer. Newer taps are more efficient than older models and low flow taps can use up to 50% less water. The water you save with your new taps comes off your water bills, putting money back into your pocket.
LOVE YOUR LONG SHOWER
You don’t need to give up your beloved long shower if you want to save money on your utility bills. If you’re renovating your bathroom, simply install a showerhead that will start saving you water and money immediately. Throw out those egg-timers and don’t worry about kicking people out of the shower. Enjoy your shower and save money on your water bills.
THE POWER OF THE SHOWER
The shower is also the main culprit for adding to your other utility bills. There’s no shower like a hot shower but heating up your water also adds to your gas bills. But wait, you’ve already installed your showerhead. By saving water with your showerhead you’re also heating up less water, which means a lower gas bill for you. That’s two for the price of one!
SAVE IN THE TOILET
If you’ve spent time playing on your phone on the toilet you know that it’s a great place to waste time. But it turns out the toilet is also a great way to save too. With low flow toilets and newer models you can save money on every flush. Try switching to a two-flush toilet to save even more when you’re only flushing liquid waste.
