Water, Water Everywhere
This summer, as we pay more attention to the amount of water we use,
buying a new home or replacing your older home's appliances and plumbing fixtures may make good environmental sense.
Older top-loading clothes washers, for instance, use about 40 to 55 gallons of water per load. A newer front-loading machine may only take 22 to 25 gallons to wash a load of clothes.
Toilets are another item in the home that guzzles water. Older units (those manufactured before 1978) can require four to six gallons of water per flush. Newer toilets (those on the market between 1978 and 1993) use just 3.5 gallons per flush. Today's water miser toilets require even less water: just 1.6 gallons per flush.

If you're planning to sell your home, and it features high-efficiency fixtures and appliances, let us know. We can help find a buyer who will appreciate your home's energy efficiency.
