As a whole, the plumbing industry has made enormous efforts in creating new products that conserve energy. Aqua Plumbing & Air is enthusiastic about offering our Bradenton customers green products that protect the environment and save money.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters do not store any water so they do not need to constantly heat a large quantity of water. With an Energy Star rated tankless water heater you could save as much as 30% of the cost of running a traditional water heater. Another advantage is that you will never run out of hot water. When cold water is drawn into the unit it passes through a series of flow sensors that activate either a gas burning or electric element. The water is heated instantly and only when needed. Tankless water heaters are also considered a green product because of the space they save. At a fraction of the size of traditional water heaters, a tankless unit has far less impact on the environment when it comes time for disposal.
Solar Hot Water
With over three hundred days of sunshine each year, Bradenton is a perfect location for capitalizing on solar energy. By choosing to go with a green product for your water heater you will reduce your family’s carbon footprint dramatically as compared to gas or electric models. The initial cost for equipment and installation might not seem cost effective. But with energy savings paying 100% of all costs in the first eight years, this is a green plumbing product that is also smart. Most solar hot water heaters have a lifecycle of 15 to 40 years so with proper maintenance you could be looking at free hot water for over 30 years. And because a solar hot water heater lasts so much longer than a traditional one, fewer materials are used in a comparable amount of time and less waste is sent to our landfills. Don’t forget; when you factor in a homeowners tax credit of up to 30% (capped at $2000) on any solar hot water equipment you purchase, going green means saving greenbacks.
