- Installing energy-efficient water softeners
Tankless Water Heaters
Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters are the green alternative for hot water in your home. Rinnai has designed its tankless water heaters so they heat less water at a time compared to traditional tank water heaters. This conserves energy and wastes less water while you wait for your shower to heat up, which benefits our earth two-fold.
If you are considering switching to a tankless water heater, ask a professional. Your home may need to update some plumbing to accommodate a tankless water heater.
Encapsulate Your Crawl Space
Attempting to encapsulate your own crawl space is a DIY-Don’t. Because it may lead to many problems with your home that may cost you money and harm the environment. For example, failing to encapsulate your crawl space properly may waste energy in your home.
A properly encapsulated crawl space will conserve energy and potentially lower your heating bills each month. However, a DIY fail may trap moisture below your home during the summer, which can result in higher air conditioning bills in the summers.
Heated flooring may seem like energy waste, but it actually can conserve energy during cold winters. Hot air rises, meaning that you may spend more money in the winter to blow hot air straight to the ceiling. Your home may waste energy by cranking the heat hotter and hotter to no avail.
With radiant heated floors, the heat remains exactly where you need it, on your sensitive extremities. Because if your feet are warm, then your body may believe that the rest of you is warm too. However, if tricking your body isn’t enough to convince you, the heated floors will radiate heat throughout the room too. However, the heat will stay localized closer to the floor meaning that more of your body will be in the heated area rather than spending money to heat the ceiling.
Upgrade Old Plumbing
Another easy way to make your plumbing more environmentally friendly is to upgrade it entirely. Old plumbing infrastructure may leak and release toxins into your water. Upgraded plumbing will be more efficient, conserve water, and ensure that dangerous lead and toxins don’t seep into the water.
Consider installing low-flush toilets, energy-star appliances, and tankless water heaters to do your part to conserve water and benefit the Earth.
Additionally, as a home-owner, you can remember to use environmentally-friendly cleaning products and recycle your plastics and papers rather than throwing them out. For more information on environmentally friendly plumbing practices, call Charles Moon Plumbing at 302-732-3555 today.
