Double Flash Toilet – The double flash toilet is becoming popular even at homes that are currently not looking to become eco friendly and that is because of the huge water savings. When people have control over how much water to use when they flush (an economic flush uses ONLY HALF of the amount of water that a regular flush does), they usually do use it. This savings are instantly reflected in your water bill.
Low Flow Faucets – Consult a professional and ask for recommendations on what low flow faucet models to install.
Greywater system – There are many kinds of systems that recycle water so you can re-use them for different purposes. Be sure to consult a professional regarding your specific needs, since some systems are much more expensive than others and may not be useful for your home’s needs. This is the case, for instant, with a purifying system that is designed to save on garden irrigation expenses. If you do not have a garden, some systems will not return the investment made.
Non Toxic Adhesives/Sealants – Eco friendly contractors will usually be able to recommend top of the line sealants that are made with eco friendly, often recyclable materials.
Be sure to ask for several different price quotes and gather ideas from different professionals. Remember: the better your plan is, the greener and more eco friendly the result.
