Having an energy efficient home doesn’t mean installing a geothermal heating system in the backyard. In fact, sometimes the smallest changes make the biggest environmental impact.

Start the new year off right by making your Pittsburgh or Cleveland home a more eco-friendly place, starting with the bathroom sink. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has several tips on how to save water (and money) at the tap.

Run Water Efficiently

The official EPA Partner of the Year, WaterSense® has several faucets, aerators, and other products that make conserving water easy. In fact WaterSense has saved 487 billion gallons of water since 2006. Buy a few of their affordable products to make your home a greener place.

Turn it off

While using water is necessary, most of us use too much of it. Even doing something as simple as leaving the water running while brushing our teeth wastes up to 3,000 gallons per person a year. Save water and money by turning off the tap whenever possible.

A Clean (and Green) Bathroom

If your bathroom has lost its sparkle, Tri-Star Refinishing will remodel it the green way. We specialize in residential bathtub refinishing, countertop resurfacing, and even cracked bathtub repairs. These repairing and buffing processes will leave the bathtub or countertops looking brand-new. Better yet, our refinishing method is much cheaper and more eco-friendly than replacing the old appliance with a new one.
