You may have seen them at a public restroom – the new toilets that flush two ways, one using less water and one using more water. These energy-efficient toilets are a new alternative to traditional toilets that offer a number of benefits for homeowners and public rest areas alike. Here are three reasons you may want to consider energy-efficient toilets for your home:
- Save Water – You may have heard a few sayings about turning off the faucets when you brush your teeth and taking shorter showers to conserve water. While these are truly helpful tips, energy-efficient toilets can also contribute to an improved water supply by decreasing how much water is depleted from your city or town’s reservoir each year.
- Save Money – Do you know how much you spend on water each year? Probably hundreds of dollars without even thinking about it. One great reason to use energy-efficient toilets is they can save you over $100 per year on your water bill.
- Save the Environment – When our lakes, streams, and rivers are depleted to unsafe levels, it can increase the amount of dangerous elements that naturally occur, such as radon and arsenic. Being conscious of our water usage can improve water quality, preserve water for our use for longer periods of time, and protect the environment.
