2020 is a great year to go green. The Brooklyn plumbing and heating experts at Petri think it should be the year you make your home more sustainable, too.
From tankless water heaters to more efficient boilers, heat pumps and air conditioning systems, your Brooklyn home can become a model of efficiency and sustainability with just a little work. Here are some of the ways Brooklyn’s green plumbers can help you go green this year.
When it comes to your Brooklyn home’s carbon emissions, one of the worst polluters is that old, worn-out Brooklyn boiler in the basement. Heating oil just isn’t a very efficient fuel source, and it’s even being phased out across the boroughs. Replacing your existing unit with a natural gas or electric boiler is a good first step toward making your home a little friendlier to the environment.
Did you know the electricity used to treat water accounts for 35% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions annually? That makes clean water a significant source of household carbon usage, too. Switching to low-flow fixtures across your home can save hundreds of gallons of water per month, helping you cut down on your personal contribution.
Traditional water heaters sit around all day, heating water you never even use. A tankless system, on the other hand, only heats water when it needs to, which means that big machine in your closet isn’t sucking energy unless you’re using it. Tankless water heaters don’t just save money or the planet, they also provide endless hot water and last for decades.
