Green plumbing has a big impact on how much energy you consume, from the water consumed to the energy needed to heat it. Here are tips you can do yourself or with a little help

  • Unprotected pipes, especially in exterior walls - Insulating those pipes should significantly cut your energy usage
  • If you are remodeling or installing new plumbing, keep pipes out of exterior walls all together. Run pipes through insulated and interior spaces instead.
  • Consider a more energy efficient hot water tank or tankless green-plumbing solution.
  • Purchase a fitted insulation pad for your water heater tank.
  • Install low-flow shower heads - saving an average of 12 gallons per shower—about 44%—and they’re inexpensive and easy to install.
  • Install low-flow water fixtures throughout your home or office can reduce your consumption by about 60%.
  • Install faucet flow reducers on your current faucets and save about 40% on your water usage.
  • Install low-flush toilet to reduce unnecessary water usage—saving 28 gallons per person every day.
  • Purchasing a leak monitoring device that notifies you of leaky faucets, pipes, toilets and appliances.
  • Purchase dishwashers and washing machines with an Energy Star rating to reduce water use by more than 50%.
