A Bathroom Friendlier to the Environment and Wallet

Everything in Northern VA seems so expensive, especially real estate.  So it makes sense to save money where ever you can and even more exciting is at the same time have a lower impact to the environment.  With the available Green plumbing technology, everyone in Northern Va can have a bathroom friendlier to the environment and wallet when the time comes to update a home.

Are your utility bills rising? The bathroom is a great place to start cutting costs. Water usage is a huge source of waste in many homes, and minimizing that waste is a great way to save money while being friendlier toward the environment. Plus, water waste in the bathroom often correlates to a higher electricity bill because of your water pump or water heater running, so you have the potential to cut two bills at once!

The bathroom holds many of the major water-using appliances in any given home. Showers, sinks, and toilets all have the potential to be big water-wasters. In fact, many households in developed nations can use well over 50 gallons of water per day, largely because they use old, high-flow sinks, toilets, and showers. Replacing some of your older bathroom fixtures with new, low-flow alternatives can help you cut your water bill substantially. Not only can it reduce your environmental footprint, but it can also shrink the average amount on your monthly utility bills.

Although changing out some of your older fixtures is an excellent way to save money on utilities, it’s far from the only thing you can do to cut down your costs. In addition to investing in energy efficient water fixtures like low-flow toilets and showerheads, you may want to consider changing some of your water usage habits. Apps like HomeSelfe can help you track your energy usage, and recommend strategies to help you cut back the utility bill.
