Steps To Improve The Energy-Efficiency Of your Home’s Plumbing System

plumbing system

Various factors influence the working of your plumbing system. You may have installed a high-quality system and carry out regular maintenance. Yet, its efficiency may reduce over time, resulting in lower water pressure and ineffective working. You may end up paying higher bills for your water utilities.

Such a plumbing system can be upgraded to boost its energy efficiency and water efficiency. We at King & Sons Plumbing offer the best energy-efficient plumbing installations. However, we also like our clients to have a good understanding of the things they can do to improve the energy-efficiency of their plumbing system. Here we take a look at some of them:


1. Replace Showerheads and Faucets

Replacing an entire shower or a sink is always neither essential nor feasible. Instead, changing the showerheads and faucets will result in significant improvement and provide a low-cost solution. A practical way to improve water-efficiency is to install low-flow aerators and faucets. It will reduce the water flow of the faucet without the need to lower the water pressure. Install them in the kitchen and all the bathrooms in your home; you will be amazed at the amount of water and money you save over time.


2. Install Low-Flow Toilets

You can save water by installing low-flow toilets.  They are 20% or more water-efficient than conventional toilets, while their performance matches the latter. If you opt for dual-flush fixtures, you can select from two different flush types. The more powerful one works like a standard flush, and the other, which uses less water and flushes liquid waste.


3. Insulate All Water Pipes

When you insulate water pipes, it maintains temperature far better. Conventional pipes lack this kind of protection.  Insulating pipes is also an affordable method to improve the energy-efficiency of your plumbing system.


4. Pipe Installation Design

You should consider plumbing installation as a part of your home improvement plan. If your house is old, its plumbing system too may be old and in need of improvement. Revamping the old system and bringing plumbing lines of a kitchen area, bathroom, laundry, etc. together make your water flow quicker. It also results in significant savings in water and energy.


Some Other Things to Focus On

Generally, people do not pay attention to how much water they need and how much they use. Water wastage is a common phenomenon. Ensure that you and your family consciously save water. Some steps to take include:

  • Do not leave the taps running when you don’t need to use water.
  • Call a plumber and get all leakages in pipes, faucets, and taps fixed. Remember that a drop can turn into a stream in no time.
  • Consider installing an automatic sprinkler system that operates on rain sensors, to water your garden or landscape.
