As an environmentally responsible company, we feel that sustainable plumbing is the best way to go. Park Ridge residences and businesses can take advantage of the latest in sustainable plumbing technology.

Water is becoming a precious commodity as is “energy.” In fact, water costs and energy often go together. The entire concept behind sustainable plumbing is to save as much water as possible and to reduce energy use.

Interestingly, it has been calculated that the energy costs required to heat the water in a Park Ridge building accounts for more than 16 percent of the total utility bill. If the water heater is electric rather than gas or other fuels, the energy costs can amount up to 30 percent of the total bill. What many home or business owners don’t realize, is that in conventional systems, it takes water to heat water. In fact, the average home will waste more than 7,000 gallons of water per year just to heat water!

Sustainable plumbing has developed several types of alternatives to the old-fashioned water heater. The new systems are more energy efficient and waste little water.

Green Tech Plumbing specializes in sustainable plumbing. Some of the technologies we routinely install in Park Ridge and the surrounding communities include the following:

  • Tankless Water Heaters
  • Storage/Tank-Type Water Heaters
  • Heat Pump Water Heaters
  • Combination/Combo Space and Water Heating Systems
  • Solar Water Heating
  • Recirculating Pumps

Different sustainable plumbing systems are used for different situations but what they all have in common is that they save energy and water.
