Green Plumbing

When it comes to reducing environmental impact of your household living, few aspects of your home have more potential than your plumbing. Greening your plumbing can reduce home energy costs, improve your homes energy rating, improve your home from a health perspective whilst all being easier on the environment.

There are a number of ways your home can be built or altered to achieve 'greener living' and Banboy pty ltd are considered specialists in completing these types of works. Types of adjustments or ideas that can be adapted into your home include:

  • Insulation of Pipes — especially in exterior walls, are responsible for a significant amount of heat loss as water travels from your hot water heater, resulting in higher utility bills.

  • Remove Plumbing from Exterior Walls — The installation of piping systems within the walls reduces heat loss into the environment.

  • Install an On-Demand Hot Water Circulation Pump — These pumps send hot water to your fixtures in a matter of seconds, saving you money by reducing the work done by the heater/boiler.

  • Installation of a New Hot Water Heater — Hot water units account for approximately 15 percent of your total home energy use. By updating your unit with a newer, more efficient machine you can reduce  electricity/gas consumption saving you money on lower running costs.

  • Installation of Solar Water Heating Systems — Solar water heating systems utilize the sun to heat hot water for use in the household reducing utility consumption.

  • Installation of 'Water Saving' Showers Heads — Water saving showers heads can reduce your water consumption by up to half.

  • Installation of Low-Volume Flushing Toilets — On average, toilet water consumption accounts for the single biggest water usage in your home.

  • Install Energy-Efficient Appliances — Energy and water efficient dishwashers and clothes-washers reduce water consumption. This is dictated by the rating of the appliances used.
