Different Types of Eco-Friendly Toilets
You may have heard of energy efficient toilets and wondered whether they are actually more efficient than your current toilet. You may also have used an energy efficient toilet at a roadside rest area or in a public space with large restrooms. But what about energy efficient toilets for your home? In fact, there are several different types of energy efficient toilets on the market today, and you can achieve your “going green” goals by incorporating one or more of these toilets in your home. Here are two different energy efficient toilets to consider:
- Dual-Flush Toilets – Dual-flush toilets still use water to clean waste, but you can choose how much water is used depending on whether liquid or solid waste is being flushed. These toilets are incredibly eco-friendly and affordable when you would like to upgrade from your current system. You may also see a nice reduction in your water usage and energy costs after installation.
- Composting Toilets – Another option that can be a great addition to your home is composting toilets. While your initial reaction may be one of surprise, in reality these toilets are very easy to maintain and keep clean while also providing a sustainable solution for your home. You will need specific ventilation for composting toilets, so it is important to ask a professional before your next purchase.
