3 Updates for Your Bathroom that Save You MoneyAugust 21 / 2015
We all like to save money, but we also like newer things. What if we told you that you could update your home's plumbing, saving money in the long run? Here are 3 bathroom updates that can keep a little more “green” in your wallet. Smart Toilets – Smart toilets are excellent for energy efficiency. They flush automatically and have multiple flush cycles designed to save water. And, because we're all attached to our mobile devices 24/7, smart toilets even come with an app, so you can check water usage at the tips of your fingers. Forgot to flush? The app takes care of that too! Energy Friendly Faucets and Shower Heads – You don't have to make over your whole bathroom to take advantage of water saving ideas. Switching out standard faucets and shower heads to water-conserving fixtures can save you a significant amount of money. New shower heads and faucets use half as much energy as designs from even a decade ago. Not only will you save money, but you'll upgrade the look of your bathroom in the process. Tankless Water Heaters – Tankless water heaters save money and space. Unlike traditional tank heaters, the water in tankless heaters only uses energy to heat the water when the unit is in use. Research has shown making the switch to a tankless water heater can reduce utility bills by hundreds of dollars during the first year. These appliances quickly pay for themselves. Tankless water heaters tend to last twice as long too.
