When considering a green bathroom remodel, the most important facet in most homeowners’ minds these days is water conservation. With the number of green items on the market, that goal is easy to accomplish. By installing water-saving fixtures, you will not only reduce your bathroom’s footprint, but save money on your monthly water bills.
Products with a WaterSense label save up to 20 percent more water than average fixtures. There are many options to explore such as high-efficiency showerheads that won’t lessen water pressure and high-efficiency faucets with built-in aerators that reduce water flow. Low-flow and dual-flow toilets are much improved over those from just a few years ago. Dual-flow units let you choose water flow according to waste.
Energy efficient lighting fixtures are another way to update your bathroom and reduce your footprint simultaneously. Switch to compact fluorescent bulbs for vanity fixtures, while overhead, xenon lights produce less heat and save additional energy. Consider using as much natural light as possible to save even more energy.
With many energy efficient options available to you, your bathroom remodel can save you money in energy costs without sacrificing the look and feel that you desire.
