Are you thinking about upgrading your bathroom or retrofitting it with green and eco-friendly fixtures? When it comes to home improvements, your bathroom may be a room you’re avoiding because it can get expensive to update. But you can install fixtures and materials that are easier on your power bill but that don’t cost a lot of money.
So let’s start with the toilet. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, toilets account for about 30 per cent of residential indoor water use. And the Federal Government has mandated that residential toilets use no more than one point six gallons per flush. It might be time to replace that commode with a more water efficient model such as a dual flush toilet that gives you the option to use one point six gallons of water for solid waste and less than a gallon for liquid waste. You’ll get your investment back in the money you’ll save on your water bill!
