Are you planning on remodeling your bathroom in the near future? Many individuals are taking the opportunity in this down economy to upgrade and work on their existing home instead of purchasing a new home. Remodeling your home to fit your needs is a much more economically sound decision in the long run, and allows you to make multiple upgrades that can end up saving you money and will reduce your carbon footprint.
Here are a few ways that you can create an eco-friendly bathroom:
- Fixtures: Install low-flow sinks, faucets, toilets and showerheads in your bathroom to reduce the amount of water that is wasted.
- Energy: Install high efficiency light bulbs in your bathroom can help to reduce your energy consumption. Other options include adding an on-demand water heater to avoid excess energy consumption lost when heating water in your home.
- Ventilation: Proper ventilation allows you to avoid the production of mold and mildew in your home. You want to be sure that you have the proper sized fan for your bathroom. You can also automate the fans in your bathroom to shut off when not needed anymore (humidity sensor), which helps in the conservation of electricity.
