Pete’s Plumbing Leads the Way in Eco-Friendly Plumbing in the Atlanta Area

Pete’s Plumbing continues to blaze a trail in eco-friendly plumbing. The downturn of our economy has not put a damper on people’s desire for eco-friendly plumbing. In fact, in some ways, it has increased consumers’ awareness of green technology and inspired them to do more.

Ways to Go Green
Many consumers are interested in ways they can reduce their impact on the environment and save money at the same time. They are concerned about our planet and look to serve as a role model for their children. Minor alterations can have an enormous impact on your “green” factor. 

And, the great news is, is does not cost a fortune to make these changes to our home and business.
  •  Water Conserving Toilets: Changing out your old toilet can save money and resources daily. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, replacing a pre-1992 toilet with a newer model that uses 1.28 gallons per flush will save you on average $90 per year and reduce water waste by 60%. 
  • Shower Heads: Replace your full-flow shower head with one that restricts flow while still supplying plenty of water for a refreshing shower. You can save thousands of gallons of year by simply replacing your shower head and reduce water running down the drain.
  • High Efficiency Water Heaters: According to the Energy Star website, water heaters account for 15% of your home’s energy bill. Replacing an old water heater with a high efficiency model can realize savings anywhere from 10% to 50% of their energy consumption.  
  • Outdoor Irrigation System: Review your outdoor irrigation system and look for problems with run-off and over-watering. Pay special attention to these areas as outdoor watering can account for up to 55% of your water usage. Adjust water times and schedule watering in the evening or early morning hours to avoid evaporation during hot and windy days. Avoid allowing water to puddle or runoff. Immediately replace any broken and missing parts to increase efficiency.
  • Aerators and Landscape Management: Consider replacing thirsty plants, scrubs, and lawns with drought-tolerant or indigenous materials to reduce your water consumption. Twice a year aerate your lawn to reduce soil compaction and runoff. Aerating your lawn allows for deeper watering and reduces your water consumption.
  • Insulate Pipes: Insulating your pipes is one of the cheapest ways you can go green even in a tight economy. Simply wrapping your pipes will ensure you receive your hot water quicker, thus eliminating your wait time and water down the drain.
  • Leaky Faucets or Toilets: The drip, drip you are hearing is money and resources down the drain. Fixing a leaky faucet or toilet will immediately save you money and stop our most valuable resource from going down the drain.
