>Have you ever stood over a running faucet and thought to yourself what an absolute shame it is to basically watch your hard earned money go down the drain while you wait for the hot water to come through? It is most definitely a waste to mother nature but of course to our own personal time as well. For those who don’t know, in order to actually receive the hot water, all the cold water must be flushed out prior. Even with this, you never get immediate hot water. The heat from the water will become absorbed through the cold pipes as it travels through until it’s completely warmed up resulting in even more wasted water. With this being said, what are some things you can do to have more energy efficient pluming? Well, let’s find out!

Hot Water Demand System

An efficient and easy installment energy saving method would be the hot water demand system, also known as a tank-less water heater. These works by:

  • Turning on the hot water demand system.
  • It will then pump blasts water through the piping fixture.
  • Hot water is then returned to the water heater through the cold water return pipe.
  • Once the water is returned, the pump then shuts off.
  • The average use time is only a few seconds making it extremely energy efficient.An average family that uses a hot water demand system will only spend $2 a year in electricity. A hot water demand system can save a family of 4 up to 14,000 gallons a year by preventing the waste of cold water being flushed down the drain.

    Insulated Hot Water Pipes

    One of the more simple energy solutions, insulating your water pipes can prevent them from cooling off as quickly which makes it easier for new hot water as it doesn’t have to exert as much heat to the pipes. This piping insulation preserves the existing heat so that less water is wasted due to cooler temperatures.

“This past week I had the need for a plumber and I reviewed the telephone book and selected from the advertisements your company to attend to the matter. The company sent Austin Steinbach to attend to and review the problem. He is a very knowledgeable young man who communicates well and does his work in a very thorough and professional manner. I was very satisfied with his service. Mr. Steinbech is a credit to your company. Very often in communities someone asks whether they are aware of a plumber or other technician that can be recommended. In this regard, I am comfortable in recommending Mr. Steinbech and your company. Thank you for the service rendered.”

“Quick & competent work done to high satisfaction. Darrell Begay provided quick service and very professional work when he came to install a new toilet seat. We had not been able to do the work ourselves, so it was a relief to have Darrell and Done Plumbing get here so quickly to take care of the task. We appreciate all Done as done for us”

When an issue arose with the clean-outs, Kieth quickly resolved it to our satisfaction & to the way he had previously described. From the estimate to the conclusion of the project we had confidence in Kieth. He is a good ambassador for your company.”

“Just a note of thanks for being the Best plumbing and heating company. I have used you often and have been impressed every time. I called for a drain cleaning and was told a technician could come the same day. He arrived an hour ealier than was quoted, was very professional and did a great job at a very reasonable price with my coupon that he honored. I would never use another company and would recommend you to anybody that needs help. The technician that did such a great job was Austin, but every technician you have sent has been the best. Thanks again for such a wonderful company”

~ Karla W Golden, CO

“It was very professional, prompt & the technician explained many things well. Very happy throughout the whole process – from the customer service rep who answered the phone this morning to the technician explaining building codes to me.
