All of us have to shower every day and if you have larger family, there could be line up in the morning to take one. Water that come out for showering is estimated to be around 25% of all water used in the house. ALBO Renovations works with suppliers of showerheads that can minimize the water flow by as much as 30% and still have similar pressure to have proper showers.

One of the other sources of water that can be potentially reduced with our bathroom renovation contractors is from your toilet. Studies have shown that toilet flushes may consume up to 30% of all water in the house. By installing toilets that use slightly less water to flush and with increased pressure you will be saving water that does not have to go to waste as well as money that you can be using elsewhere. One option is to switch to dual flush system on your toilet and reduce water flow in more than half of your flushes. This green touch up in your bathroom can save you $100 per year.
Bathroom is the room where all moisture accumulates with heat from the water used while taking showers or bath. If you have older fan system in your house it can have a bad flow of air and leave behind moisture that can lead to creation of spores and molds. Water in the air that is left inside of the bathroom can potentially damage the walls or furniture like vanity or other shelves. Even some of new fans can have problems with carrying out all of the hot air, by creating bad smells and bacteria. The key is in exchange of air from warm to cold. Replacement of a switch system can play a big role as many of us forget to turn the fan off from time to time. Motion detector or time switchers are popular in green bathroom remodeling for newer homes in Toronto. Ask ALBO Reno contractors for possible solutions on your air flow in bathroom.
