Energy consumption is of great concern to Californians, both for its impact on our bills and for our impact on the planet. Our dependence on natural resources, and our awareness of our limited supply, has generated a green mindset in our use and conservation of our energy sources.
Water is our world’s most precious resource, and proper plumbing service and repair are vital to the ability to contain, clean, circulate, and conserve this essential component of our lives.
Water usage is fundamental to our health, hygiene, and comfort, and beyond our personal use it directly affects the use of all other energy sources, from electricity, natural gas, and diesel fuel. By installing energy efficient water devices, only heating water that is needed, and turning off the flow of water until you need it, you will greatly reduce your carbon footprint and can save hundreds of dollars every year on your energy bill.
At Ace Plumbing and Rooter, we strive to run our business and to provide services that are based in a green consciousness, both within our company and for our community. Our trained and skilled professionals offer free estimates to green your water use, can install all energy efficient devices, and will recommend ways for you to save water and money for your home or business without affecting your comfort or disturbing your personal environment. At Ace plumbing, we consider our environmental impact from start to finish; from our recycling practices in the shop to our effort to promote the installation of energy efficient devices in the home. Ace plumbing is a green company that cares about saving you money on your energy costs and saving the planet as responsible citizens.
Here are some ways that Ace Plumbing and Rooter can help your home or business become energy and cost efficient:
Let Ace Plumbing and Rooter install a Low Flow or Dual Flow toilet to save you thousands of gallons and dollars every year! Low flow toilets save up to 70% of water with one powerful flush compared to older models, and will be the standard by 2014. Dual flush toilets allow you to choose the amount of water needed to dispose of waste. While installing a new toilet is an initial investment, these green models will save thousands of gallons and dollars for their owners every year. Ace Plumbing can install a top of the line low flow or dual flow toilet with minimal impact on your home or business. San Francisco’s push to replace older toilets with low flow toilets has already cut our City’s water waste by 20,000,000 gallons annually. Let Ace help you be a part of this San Francisco’s green effort!
With traditional Tank water heaters, all of the water held in its capacity is constantly kept heated, wasting literally tons of energy, slowing the process of heated water’s flow, and decreasing efficiency.
With tankless heaters, the water you need is heated on demand by a heat exchanger or copper tube that is heated by a burner. This method is highly efficient, and does not use energy when it is not used. At Ace Plumbing, we can quickly install a tankless water heater and save your home or business almost half of its water heating bill. We will also send you a reminder every 2 years when your heater needs to be cleaned to ensure the quality and efficiency of your heater.
Installing a high quality flow restrictor or new low flow showerhead can save hundreds of gallons of water every shower without compromising your desired water pressure. Flow rate restrictors can be easily fit onto your existing showerhead, or we can replace your showerhead with an environmentally sensitive showerhead that provides strong water pressure with minimum water waste.
Leaks in your home are the ultimate waste of water and money. Leaks can happen without your direct knowledge in every area of your home, from your toilet “running” all night, to the faucet in your bathtub spilling into the tub while you shower. Leaks can be prevented with the proper installation of energy efficient devices, and should be fixed immediately if detected.
