What’s the latest trend in home improvement? Eco-friendly spaces! Green living is the new thing, and we here at Brownie’s Septic & Plumbing are going to teach you how to transform your bathroom into an eco-conscious haven.
As your bathroom accounts for the most energy drained, water used, and houses the most one-time use products in your entire home, this is the best place to start going green—you’ll make the biggest impact! Here’s how to take your bathroom and turn it into an ecocentric, environmentally forward space:
Switch To Low-Flow Showerheads
Americans can reduce their water footprint by 20% with water-efficient fixtures! By replacing your current showerhead with a low-flow alternative, you’ll see astronomical water savings. Install your water-efficient fixture today, and you can start saving up to 3,000 gallons of water per year!
Install Aerators To Your Fixtures
This is an easy DIY project that is both budget-friendly and easy to install! Aerators retail for about five dollars, making them a great way to cut down on water consumption without digging deep into your pockets. For installation, simply screw your aerator onto your faucet head! It’s really that simple! Once the aerator is secured, it will add air to your water as it is dispensed to reduce the amount of water flowing out of your faucet at once, inherently reducing water waste!
Replace Your Traditional Toilet With A Dual-Flush Option
Dual-flush toilets not only outperform traditional, older toilets, but they also do so in an increasingly efficient manner. Make the switch from your current toilet to a dual-flush toilet and start seeing water savings of up to 13,000 gallons per year! When purchasing your new water-conscious toilet, make sure to look for a WaterSense label on your product. This indicates the item uses the least amount of water possible to effectively flush.
Change Your Light Bulbs
LED bulbs have longer lifespans and use 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs. This will take your bathroom from energy sucker to energy saver! And, as an added benefit, you will notice a drop in your monthly utility costs.
