Here Is A List To Start You Thinking!

  • Try to Reduce You Total Water Consumption - The latest low water toilets are able to save you thousands of gallons water a year. If you have a commercial setting consider a totally Waterless urinal. Yes it's true, they work completely without water or flush valves. The system is touch free, improves restroom sanitation and eliminates odors. A Waterless urinal can save up to 45,000 gallons of water and more per year.
  • Think of getting a Green Showerhead - Leeds approved and Water Sense Green shower heads help conserve hot water, un-hot water, and money. It is truly possible to cut shower water usage by 2/3 if you purchase wisely. You can also consider a plumbing faucet aerator which means that you will be able to save water without sacrificing performance.
  • It Is Time To Consider A New On Demand Hot Water Re-Circulator - Commercial & Residential settings now have the option to stop wasting and waiting for hot water in your bathrooms, kitchens, mud rooms, and lavatory sinks.By choosing the new product lines of energy Water Sense, EPA & Leeds approved energy efficient products, you will be making up the 27% energy used by your older style units. Perforrmace and savings go hand and hand.
  • Are You Ready For A New Heating System? - Let's talk savings. The latest high-efficiency heating systems can often cut your fuel bills and your furnace's pollution output in half. An upgrade for your furnace or boiler from 56% to 90% efficiency will save 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year if you heat with gas. That is the latest from the US Dept. of Energy state that heating and cooling account for about 56% of the energy use in a typical U.S. home, making it the largest energy expense for most homes.
  • Consider that New AC System - Understanding how heat is transferred from the outdoors into your home and from your home to your body is important for understanding the challenge of keeping your house cool. Older units can waste up to 40% of your energy. The US Department of Energy says the average home consumes more than 2000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year. That means about 3500 pounds of carbon dioxide and 31 pounds of sulfur dioxide will be emitted at the power plant. Installation of a Whole building power ventilator fan can replace all of the stale air every two minutes with cooler outdoor air.
  • Upgrade your Laundry Equipment - The purchase of a new Front load clothes washer will mean a 40% less energy usage than standard washers and uses 18–25 gallons of water per load, compared to the 40 gallons used by a standard machine. EnergyStar provides some very helpful statistics on newer manufacturers models for homes and commercial settings like hotels, kitchens and institutions. Did you realize that simple neglect of equipment is the #1 cause of furnace or ac breakdown and wasted energy? Why pay more than 15% more in energy costs if you don't have to. Get on a regular contract for all your mechanical equipment in both your home and commercial settings. Just like your car maintenance, keeping a Tune-up for your ac and heating equipment really does work and saves you money!
  • Check Out A New Programmable Thermostat - This simple savings adds up to about 3% on your heating bill for every degree that you set back your thermostat full-time, says Bill Prindle, deputy director for the nonprofit American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. "There's a lot of things that the entrepreneurial homeowner can do, if he's a little bit handy," says John Ryan, team leader for commercial buildings for the Building Technologies Program in the Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, who has spent years thinking about efficiency in homes.
  • For Convenience & Savings Begin Using Pure Filtered Water - At the tap, this purified system means you can save up to 1.5 million barrels of oil to make the plastic and can cost $1.28 to $2.56 to over $7.00 a gallon. Learn how pure filtered water at your tap adds convenience and savings for your home or residential setting.
  • Hey Plug All Those Air Leaks - According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, you can save 10 percent or more on utility bills just by pluggin air leaks like new door threasholds, caulking around windows and floor boards, around plumbing pipes under sinks, and in your attic by providing more insulation. The cost to get it done means continued savings for years to come.
  • Don't Forget To Use Energy Star Fluorescent Light Bulbs - Everyone uses light bulbs, and these new rated bulbs use about 75 percent less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer. If only everyone would just begin here big results would start taking place. If every American home would replace just one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, do you realize that it would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for a year, more than $600 million in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of more than 800,000 cars. That is pretty unbelievable really.
  • Don't forget that the Energy Policy Act of 2005 gives most of its $14.5 billion in tax breaks over the next 10 years to businesses. If you are a business, please check it out. CCH Inc., a provider of tax and accounting information and software believes it is worth the inspection.

Many Homeowners who make energy-efficient improvements to existing homes can qualify for a 10% tax credit, up to $500. For those who are not aware of what a credit is, it's a  a dollar-for-dollar reduction in taxes, compared with a deduction, which only decreases taxable income. Improvements that can qualify include adding insulation, metal roofs coated with heat-reducing pigments, and energy-efficient windows, doors and skylights (though only $200 can come from windows). If you are interested in finding out more, contact us here at Atlas Plumbing. We are here to help you get the best deal you can when you need to reduce your energy costs. Regardless of whether it's through simple light bulb changes or replacing existing plumbing fixtures, faucets, showerheads, or installing new HVAC solutions and Tankless Water Heating solutions for your home or business.
