A lot has been said about remodeling the green way and most of the time, it’s the kitchen that gets the most attention. After all, it’s one of the most used room and therefore, any cost-savings fixture that’s installed in the kitchen equates to a significant amount of savings for the homeowner.
But there are other areas your home that may also be “green” zoned and yes your bathroom is one of them. Have you tried replacing your bathroom vent fan with a more energy efficient model? While it is true that vent fans are used only for a few minutes, replacing it with an energy-efficient model could save you up to 50%.
Replacing your old faucets with a model that works through sensors will help lower your water bill. Family members often ignore the fact that unused running water from the faucet (even for a minute) leads to wastage that could up your water bill.
The next time you remodel, include your bathroom too. This small space can generate savings if you know which fixtures to install.
