5 Tips to Green Your Bathroom and Save Money

How can you be more efficient in your bathrooms? Do you want to save a little money by making sure your bathrooms are not wasteful and inefficient. Well here are five tips that will get you on the road to a little more savings and a lot more efficiency.

Reduce your Water Need

Ok yes. The best way to reduce usage and ensure efficiency is to reduce the need for so much water coming in to your home in the first place. This yes saves water, but it also reduces the amount of energy that is needed to keep it flowing and going. The water you use comes from a plant in the city and there are thousands of homes if not millions that must be serviced. Well, that is a lot of energy. It takes a lot of electricity to move this water around from the city to your home. So use less then less energy is used.

Shower with High Efficiency Shower Heads

They say most shower heads have a 2.5 gallons per minute flow and of course their are others a bit faster and some slower but that is the average. Try to purchase newer faucet heads. The later the model, you will often find the better the efficiency.

Good Faucets

A dripping or leaking faucet can not only be nerve wracking, but it can inflate your water bill quickly. Just like your shower heads, make sure to modernize your faucets to get the best efficiency and water flow that will keep the pressure high, but reduce the flow. Efficiency is when it is operating its best and servicing the consumer better.

Toilet Flow Keep in Check

They now make toilets with different flow types. The modern ones will especially have a heavier or dual flush with number two and a single flush with number one. Always check leaks or drips in the back of the toilet because these can easily be missed and if not caught cause much havoc.

Light up The Bathroom the Right Way

Have you ever awaken in the middle of the night and turned the bathroom light on only to hide your face because it's like you are in New York City.  Some bathrooms are simply too bright. The best bulbs for bathrooms are the LED's.  They provide good lighting and will cut back on electricity usage tremendously.

Get efficient, save money and go green by using these simple updates that will modernize your home as well as make it more efficient.
