Green Products Save Resources and Money
While the new hot tech like streaming music in the bathroom and shower control systems are garnering all the pop coverage from the media. With these new technologies popping everyday who can blame them? But environmentally friendly plumbing technology is also growing in consumer interest.
Environmental products are not only relatively affordable, but they also save money by reducing water use over time without compromising day-to-day use. Products that are innovative and promote green building practices are great items for consumers and plumbers.
One example of appliances that integrate both technology and eco-friendly functions can be found in dishwashers. Manufacturers are continuing to develop products that meet higher energy-efficiency standards and save water, with some using water from the rinse cycle for the next wash. An average family who washes dishes four times per week could save 700 gallons of water each year through the use of a smart dishwasher, according to Reviewed.com.
Additional emerging technologies combine home automation technologies with green practices. For example, new sprinkler systems attach to controllers that use Wi-Fi to download seven days of weather forecasts, adjusting the sprinklers accordingly.
With water increasing in cost, consumers will be looking for plumbing products that decrease water use without affecting their day-to-day activities.
While green practices are sure to continue to evolve and develop, retailers who have environmentally efficient products should communicate to their customers the green options provided in-store. Not only will it aid those looking to save money on their water bills, but it will also contribute toward better conservation practices.
Front end plumbers and contractors will also contribute to the increased usage of green, healthy, environmentally sound plumbing products and practices.
