GO GREEN: A HOUSEHOLD GUIDE FOR EARTH DAY

Did you know that as a homeowner, your choices when it comes to energy and water use can really impact the environment? This is especially true when it comes to your plumbing. It’s all about being aware of your water use and knowing what your options are.

Here is what you need to know:

APRIL 22 IS EARTH DAY

While being environmentally friendly is a task that should take place every day of the year, there is a special focus on Earth Day, which happens on April 22. Earth Day has been around for several decades, having been first celebrated back in 1970. It is now celebrated worldwide by 193 different countries.

It is a day of global observance to draw attention to the environment and the dangers of global warming. It is also a day to explore and discuss actions that can be taken to help reduce climate change.

TANKLESS WATER HEATERS

Want to reduce your energy bills and give the environment a boost at the same time? Consider installing a tankless water heater.

Unlike traditional water heaters, tankless heaters work “on demand,” heating water when you need it only.

It is a far more energy efficient way to heat water. And a bonus you’ll save on your energy bills too!

ECO-FRIENDLY PLUMBING FIXTURES

Do you have low flow toilets or showerheads? You should! These eco-friendly fixtures will reduce your water waste and help you to conserve water. Energy efficient faucets will also help regulate water flow.

WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS INSTEAD

Avoid buying bottled water. Not only is it a super expensive way to consume water, but it is also one of the least environmentally friendly choices that you can make. Invest in a water filtration system instead.

You can have one installed easily right on your faucet, which will remove the impurities from your water. The result is crisp, clean tasting water that is good for the environment too.

REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

In addition to paying attention to your plumbing, there are other things that you can do to reduce your carbon footprint as a homeowner.

Check out your windows and doors to make sure that they are well sealed. Always choose EnergyStar rated appliances, which are the energy efficient choice.

Turn your thermostat down in the winter and a little higher in the winter to reduce your energy use and your carbon footprint.

Your steps to conserve energy and water use in your home will go a long way in reducing your carbon footprint.
