So, all new homes need to be eco friendly within six years. The developers of course have to find suitable products that are tested to meet with the new government directive so eventually we might expect there to be hundreds of products on the market that can help us to help the environment. Eco friendly taps for todays residentials households, however, can be purchase through main household retailers and specialists, though just what to look out for can be simply daunting.
Of course there are plenty of other eco products that can be used around the home to help save money, and now most of use know which energy rating to look out for when selecting washing machines and other white goods which is great. But, additionally, carefully chosen accessories around households can help us cut the amount of electricity we are using and losing, and we want to concentrate on taps and how to look out for longer lasting energy saving ones.
Most of us Brits like a bath over a shower, though showers are hugely convenient they can use up just as much water, especially power showers. However, there are ways to cut down on usage of water even if you want to keep your bath/s. Mixer taps that come with a water break can help reduce the flow of water how many times have you run a bath to return to it and find the bath is almost full and had to let the water out? This type of accessory, if considered carefully, can really help reduce the amount of wasted bath water by creating a slower flow and not filling the bath up too quickly, a great gadget to have.
There are taps that come with aerators that create tiny bubbles that mix with the water. These also reduce the flow of water but in a different way to mixer taps, though both are specifically designed for the same purpose.
We realise that specific design and form of taps when you are redesigning a room are all important. Should you buy taps that do not have a water saving facility, there are additional products, or cartridges, on the market that can be fixed to existing taps and promise to increase water saving and the equivalent usage of electricity associated with that (heating up the water, filling up the water tank after it has emptied etc).
By simply entering water saving taps into Google UK, it becomes clear that there are many products out there right now that can help the environment and your pocket in the long term and eco friendly taps are becoming more popular, thanks to the Government initiative? Were not sure just yet, but we know they will become more readily available and at reduced cost in the future so we can all do our bit to help.
