Energy efficient home

Part 1 -Your Plumbing Companies Energy Efficient Home

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

What would your plumbing company’s energy efficient home look like? So let’s dream a little bit, and try to imagine what the perfect home would look like from a plumbing standpoint, where the money is no object. With that said, we’ll do some comparisons. For example, we will compare high-quality tank water heaters with tankless water heaters. Let’s first set the stage. We’re moving into an old home, and the appliances are old. You’ve decided to upgrade everything from water heaters to the dishwasher, and that also includes fixtures. We’re shooting for the perfect house for plumbing efficiency.

Water Heater Can Be 24-34% More Energy Efficient

Let’s start in the garage then move to the kitchen, and then to the other parts of the home. Since money is no object, let’s replace the old storage-tank water heater with a new tankless water heater. An ENERGY STAR certified tankless water heater can be 24-34% more energy-efficient compared to standard water heaters that use 41 gallons or less in hot water per day. For those homes that use 86 gallons daily, the saving is 8-14%. Replacing your old water heater with the newest storage-tank water heater would also be an energy-saving option that would cost far less to install. 

The Enviro Filtration System Uses No Electricity

Next, we would install an Enviro Filtration System in our home. The system provides excellent drinking water, preserves your pipes and water heater. You can also say goodbye to those scales on your glass shower doors. The Enviro Filtration System uses no electricity, uses no salt, and is maintenance-free.

ENERGY STAR Certified Dishwasher Costs About $35 A Year To Run

Now let’s move into the kitchen. We’ll start with the dishwasher; an ENERGY STAR certified dishwasher costs about $35 a year to run and will save on average 3,870 gallons of water over its lifespan. Not only will a homeowner see the savings in their bottom line, the environment benefits as well. An ENERGY STAR certified dishwasher will deliver cutting edge energy efficiency and the latest in technology without ever giving up on performance. An Energy Star certified dishwasher is part of your plumbing company’s energy efficient home design.

You’ll Use 20% Less Water Than The Average Showerhead or Faucets

Replace all faucets, showerheads, and aerators in your bathrooms and kitchen with new WaterSense labeled ones. You’ll use 20% less water than the average showerheads and faucets, while still providing equal or superior performance. By outfitting your home with WaterSense labeled faucets, a household can stand to save roughly 3,500 gallons of water and approximately 410 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
