How to Go Green With Your Bathroom Remodel

 In blog

Luxury, durability, and comfort are often the drivers that have you thinking about a bathroom remodel. It is a renovation that will add value to your home and convenience to your day-to-day life, but people often overlook another potential benefit: being more sustainable and eco-friendly.

A bathroom remodel gives you a number of exciting opportunities to make your home more environmentally friendly. New, innovative products can help to make your stylish new bathroom functional and efficient.

Water usage

You use your bathroom every day, so it is no surprise that it is the room where you use the most water. The efficiency of your bathroom features can have a huge impact on the amount of water you and your family use. Older style toilets use a great deal of water, but modern designs have gone a long way to cut down water usage. Dual-flush toilets allow you to flush with high or low flow depending on your needs, cutting down drastically on your family’s water usage. Modern high-efficiency faucets and shower heads use higher pressure and less water, so you don’t lose any functionality while lowering your water bill.

Water heating

Everyone enjoys a piping hot shower, but traditional water heaters can rack up your heating bill. Tankless water heaters are a new, highly efficient way to heat your water. With a tankless heater, you only heat up the water you use, instead of heating a whole tank of water that you might not use. This will translate to huge savings on your energy bill and a lower environmental footprint.

Lighting

Modern electrical fixtures and new LED light bulbs can go a long way to making your bathroom more efficient. If you are doing a full bathroom remodel, introducing a skylight is another great way to bring natural light into your bathroom.
