One of the best ways for Boise homeowners to save money and help the environment is to make the switch to energy and water-efficient plumbing fixtures throughout their homes.
It's a Big Deal
It's a Big DealThe Environmental Protection Agency takes water usage seriously, and they'd like us to do the same. In the U.S. alone, if every household installed water-efficient fixtures, the savings would amount to more than $18 billion dollars and over 3 trillion gallons of water annually. But the
savings don't stop there.
If just one in 100 of us opted for water-efficient fixtures, we'd save some serious energy, avoiding greenhouse gas emissions to the tune of about 80,000 tons.
Low-Flow Plumbing Fixtures
Look for plumbing fixtures marked with the EPA's Watersense labels. These fixtures are 20% more efficient and have been certified to meet high-efficiency standards without compromising performance. In some cases, they even outperform their less efficient predecessors.
