3 Great Benefits of High-Efficiency Toilets

High-Efficiency Toilets

According to the EPA, toilets are the main source of water usage in residential buildings, accounting for roughly 30 percent of a home’s total water bill. With such a large portion of water going to the toilet, it’s in your best interest to conserve whenever possible. Breakthroughs in toilet technology have allowed toilets to use 1.28 gallons of water per flush instead of the normal 1.6 gallons while operating with the same efficiency. If you’ve never thought about a high-efficiency toilet in your Lubbock, Texas, home, check out some of the benefits you’re missing out on.

Save Money

Because high-efficiency toilets’ lower water usage by about 20 percent compared to regular toilets, you’re in for some substantial savings. This can translate to a monthly savings of 20 percent or even more if you have old-school toilets that can use anywhere from 3 gallons to 6 gallons per flush. Plus, the improved efficiency can also translate into fewer repairs.

Amazing Performance

Even though high-efficiency toilets use less water, they’re actually every bit as powerful as other models. As soon as you drop the handle, you’ll notice the water escape with a ferocity that’s as impressive as a jet engine. Not only does this remove waste, but it helps prevent any sewer backups from happening.

Reduce Water Usage With a Dual-Flush Toilet

Popular in Europe, Australia, and several other places around the world, dual-flush toilets are a way to reduce your water usage and save money even more. These toilets have two buttons on them, with one for a number one and the other for a number two. When used appropriately, the dual-flush system uses less water than even most high-efficiency toilets, reducing the number of gallons of water you use daily and adding to your savings.

With so many spectacular benefits of a high-efficiency toilet, you should definitely consider replacing one or all the toilets in your home. If you want to get the installation done right, call BTAC today at 806-589-1014.

I am so thankful for BTAC and the guys they sent out to repair a major hot and cold water leak under our slab. They knew what they were doing, and were very professional and polite, and I might add compassionate. They are an asset to the company!

To the credit of BTAC and it's management, I had a frustrating experience with them on a call out for a problem with a blower motor. I made my opinion known and contacted them through email to express it. They responded, sent out new technicians and made it right. That doesn't happen very often these days, and it's good to see a company show it cares about that. If you call these folks to come out, and your experience is what you expected, let them know, they'll work with you. 👍

I'm new to the Lubbock area and Bruce Thornton Air Conditioning was the first company we called. They had someone at our house to help in an hour and the service man had our AC fixed in 30 minutes. Their customer service was great from the receptionist who answered the phone to the hvac professional who fixed our AC!
