If your home needs renovations, the bathroom is one area where an investment will benefit you and the value of your home. In addition to making your bathroom more modern, plumbing improvements are also a major part of these types of renovations. Improving plumbing when remodeling your bathroom helps conserve energy and water, saving you money. Here are some of the plumbing and energy improvements you should consider for your bathroom remodeling project:
1. Radiant Heating Solutions for More Than Just Energy Savings
Radiant heating solutions are available in different systems for the bathroom. If you do not like getting up in the morning to cold floors, consider installing an in-floor heating system for the bathroom, which can be electric if you do not have radiant heating. You can also use radiant heating for towel warmers in the bathroom so you never have to get a cold towel again when you get out of the shower.
2. Low-Flow Plumbing Fixtures to Save You Water and Energy
Low-flow plumbing is another improvement that you will want for your bathroom. Today, faucets, showerheads, and toilets are manufactured to use less water, which saves water and energy. You may even want to consider solutions like rain showerheads that are mounted on the ceiling and create a relaxing shower of water like real rainfall. If you reuse grey water for uses like irrigation, then it may also be used to flush toilets, so you do not use clean potable water for the toilets.
3. Water Heater Improvements and Plumbing Manifolds to Stop Energy Loss
Water heater improvements are another improvement that you will want to consider if you are doing renovations to a bathroom. Today, you have many options for more efficient hot water systems. You may want to consider something like a tankless, solar, or heat pump water heater. These newer, efficient water heater systems will help save energy and water in your entire home. Solar water heaters are a great solution to improve the efficiency of an existing water heater. Heat pump systems are a more energy efficient solution to conventional water heaters, and tankless systems will give you hot water on demand, as you need it. Improving your hot water heater will end a lot of problems that you may have had with a conventional hot water heater.
