Tips for an eco-friendly kitchen and bathroom renovation
Renovating your kitchen or bathroom is not only great to create a more attractive and stylish space. But it is also an opportunity to make sure that your appliances and fittings are designed to be both water and energy saving.
We are all more aware of how commercial and domestic buildings need to have a better approach to sustainable energy sources and in the case of the kitchen and bathroom, water saving technology too.
By investing in effective water management, many businesses and home owners can not only improve their own environmental impact, but also save themselves money too.
To help you to reduce your energy usage, we have put together some of the best products on the UK market, all designed to reduce energy and use less water.
Thermostats by Nest
Nest thermostat controls are able to regulate the temperature in a room. Whilst there are plenty of thermostats out there that can do this. What makes Nest different is that their thermostats use intelligent technology. They not only allow you to control the heat in your home whilst you are there, but over the course of time, sometimes only just a week, it learns more about your lifestyle changes and adapts to match these.
It is thought that these Nest thermostats can reduce your energy bills by as much as 60%.
Water saving flush systems
Flushing your toilet uses around 30% of the total water in your home. This is why there have been new water saving flush systems designed and installed into homes. A standard toilet uses around 13 litres of water every time you flush.
This is compared to just 4-6 litres of water in the new dual flush toilets.
Water saving taps and shower heads
We all need to keep ourselves clean, which means that the showers and taps in our homes are amongst some of the most used parts. However, they can both use up plenty of water, meaning that you have a higher water bill.
Some of the big name brands have realised this, and designed water saving taps and shower heads, which not only deliver a high quality shower experience for you, but also reduce the amount of water that is used too. They do this by pushing the water into the shower head quickly, reducing water wastage when it is travelling through the system. Many of them also come with flow restrictors and eco buttons too.
