Save Money with LEED Upgrades September 03 / 2015
Reducing energy consumption and water usage without impacting the overall function of your company’s production isn’t always as easy as it may seem at first thought. Developing a plan for a high-performance green building takes careful consideration in terms of design, operation, maintenance solutions, and construction. Businesses in the area rely on Rooter Hero Plumbing to help them achieve their LEED goals.
What Is LEED?
Developed by the United States Green Building Counsel (USGBC), LEED is the acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environment Design. More precisely, it is a system of ratings used when designing, constructing, and operating high-functioning buildings to ensure that they meet certain sustainability and environmental criteria.
How Do I Know if My Plumbing Company Is LEED Certified?
Plumbing companies that are members of the USGBC will most likely have one of the following three LEED credentials:
- LEED-CI for Commercial Interiors
- LEED-NC for New Building Construction
- LEED-EBO&M for Existing Building: Operations and Maintenance
Even if a plumbing company is not a member of USGBC or has the above-mentioned LEED credentials, it doesn’t mean that they are not qualified to discuss conservation solutions with you. In today’s competitive plumbing industry, commercial plumbers are up to date with current trends. No matter what kind of company you operate, today’s top plumbers are sustainability experts that can provide you with the knowledge, tools, and resources to lower consumption and save money.

That is an astounding rate of consumption that is rather frightening when you think about it.
