Consider these money saving plumbing upgrades for the New Year.

For the bathroom

fresh showerThe bathroom has a lot of opportunities for water wasting, which is why upgrading to high efficiency plumbing fixtures like low flow showerheads makes a lot of sense. Showers account for roughly 20% of a home’s water usage, but you can reduce your shower water usage by up to 70% with a low flow showerhead without having to sacrifice pressure. Similarly, low flush toilets use less than half the amount of water as older models and are still able to get the job done. Ultra-efficient WaterSense bathroom fixtures, which are tested and approved for efficiency under the Environmental Protection Agency’s strict guidelines, save even more water and energy than their eco-friendly counterparts.

For the kitchen

Did you know kitchen faucet water usage makes up for 15% to 18% of the water usage in the average four person household? So why not replace that old or leaky faucet with a more efficient one? Installing a low flow kitchen faucet can cut water usage in half by reducing the gallons per minute flow to just 1.5. An easy and inexpensive way to increase the efficiency of any kitchen faucet is to replace or upgrade the aerator, which is the small screen screwed onto the end. You should also consider having a new garbage disposal installed. While garbage disposals aren’t energy guzzlers, old and damaged ones can be especially problematic.

For everywhere else

If your water heater is close to ten years old then it’s definitely time to consider upgrading to a more modern and efficient model. Tankless water heaters are known for their efficiency, as well as their endless supply of hot water. With growing concern over water quality and the increasing popularity of spring and purified water, whole house water filters are a great way of ensuring clean, pure water free of potentially harmful chemicals and pollutants comes from every water source in your home. Live in an area prone to flooding? Consider upgrading to a battery backup sump pump, which can keep operating even if the power goes out.
