Being conscious of the environment in today’s modern world is becoming more and more important. As a business and individual, you need to be able to say you are doing your bit for the environment.
At N10Plumbing we aim to make a positive impact and help save the environment. We work hard to mark sure both commercial and residential customers are environmentally friendly.
There are tonnes of ways to make sure your home and business are eco friendly, in this post we’re going to go over how.
We design and install whole-house central heating systems from smaller homes to larger domestic properties. When we design your central heating system we prepare full heat loss calculations for every room to ensure the system we install is optimum for your home.
We also fit thermostatic radiator valves and programmable room thermostats which will make your new central heating system more efficient.
We can also supply and fit manifold systems with the latest plastic pipe technology.
The powerhouse of your heating system is the boiler and we only fit the most energy-efficient.
What is green plumbing?
Its an investment in environmentally friendly plumbing modifications and products. They ensure minimised water consumption, energy conservation, efficient ErP, decreased chemicals effects, and lower utility bills.
Water-based floor heating uses lower temperature water (35°C – 45°C) than radiators, reducing your carbon footprint and saving you money on your energy bills.
There are many methods of installing underfloor heating in your new extension or home renovation. A design consultation is highly recommended when considering a retrofit project.
What are some simple ways to reduce water consumption?
In the short term, it can be expensive to improve your efficiency but in the long run, you will save a lot of money. “Water consumption in the kitchen and bathroom is the biggest. Changing a kitchen tap or doing kitchen sink replacement can go a long way, but when we wash the dishes, cook, flush the toilet, take a bath or a shower, we don’t realise how much water goes to waste,”
“Low-flow showers, showerheads, and toilets, for example, minimise the water consumption in the bathroom. These and other green plumbing devices and methods ensure you seamlessly use less water,”
These reduce the amount of water that flows through sinks and taps. They can help reduce the amount of water consumption by around 30% without noticing much difference. They are very effective for decreasing water wastage and help your household save much.
Another way of making a more eco-friendly plumbing choice is insulated hot water pipes which prevent the waste of hot water, saving energy. There are lots of different pipes that also improve water pressure and prevent leakage.
Water-Efficient Upflush toilets
Some types of pumps are more eco-friendly than others. Macerator pumps are far more efficient than a standard toilet. Waste goes through a shredding unit, so you get a smooth flush instead of waste going directly to the waste pipe. This method is more efficient and uses less energy, thus costing you less money and helping the environment!
