Boost Energy Efficiency With 3 Bathroom Remodeling Projects, Rochester, New York

From taking showers to flushing toilets, a significant amount of your home’s water consumption comes from bathroom use. What’s more, energy is used to deliver a clean supply of H20 to your fixtures as well as power lights and other elements. If you’re planning a bathroom remodeling project, several simple upgrades and adjustments will make the space more energy efficient.

Green Bathroom Remodeling Projects 

1. Install New Showerheads 

bathroom remodelingIf you have an older showerhead, it’s time to consider an update. Aging models use a whopping 2.5 gallons of water per minute. A new fixture will allow you to cut back on your water consumption, as they provide the desired pressure without increasing water flow.   

2. Swap Out Faucets

Switching to newer sink faucets will also conserve energy. Similar to energy-efficient shower heads, modern faucet aerators are designed to administer a steady, high-pressure stream of water without using more than needed. 

3. Adjust the Lighting 

Bathrooms should have enough light to make primping and prepping a breeze. However, your room may be brighter than necessary, resulting in unneeded energy usage. To gauge whether your space is over-lit, use a light meter. Jot down the findings and compare them to the national lighting standard. This is an excellent jumping off point when choosing which vanities and overhead lighting solutions to install. When you find the right fixtures, purchase LED light bulbs to save energy.
