How Can Plumbing Companies Be Greener?

Most trades nowadays are notorious for leaving messes and pollution everywhere they go. This is terrible and needs to stop.  The earth will simply not survive if humans continue on this path.  Plumbers, in particular, are pretty bad for being environmentally unfriendly.

It’s usually the smaller companies though.  The bigger companies are usually more careful.  So what can plumbers do to be more careful?

Insulating the Pipes

Simply insulating the pipes can have a major effect on how much energy is used in houses.  If all plumbing companies insisted on doing this then there would be a lot of energy saved every year.

Energy Efficient Water Heaters

These are another fix that can save more energy for houses.  Most people don’t know that this is the best option so it is up to the plumbing company to tell them as it could help them and the environment. Tankless water heaters, in particular, save up to 22% energy per year.

Proper Disposal of Waste

This is one of the points that directly impact the environment and plumbers and all trades, in general, should make sure to do well.  After completing any job they must clean up after themselves properly.

If any chemicals were used in the job then they need to be disposed of properly and all materials need to go in the proper bins and not just left out in the regular trash. Stuff like metal pipes should be recycled not thrown out.

If plumbers follow these tips then they will help the environment greatly.
