bigstock-146784266If you’re looking to upgrade your Seattle bathroom, you might consider making the switch to a low-flow showerhead. In this article, we’ll look at the benefits of making the switch.

Benefits of a Low-Flow Showerhead

Low-flow showerheads can decrease water consumption by 40% or more in your Seattle home. This not only conserves water, but it cuts down on your monthly utility bill, providing significant end-of-year savings to you and your family. Showers take energy to heat the water, thus cutting down on energy usage as well as water. You can expect to save up to $50 annually on heating costs. It also cuts down on carbon dioxide emissions. Since the demand for hot water is lessened, the amount of energy used is lower and results in lower CO2 dispersed into the air.

Common Misconceptions

Low-flow doesn’t mean low-pressure for a lower quality shower. Older models of low-flow showerheads are less effective, as they slowed the water pressure down to a trickle. The newer versions coming out as of late use a mix of smaller apertures and air to create stronger pressure for a more pleasant shower. So don’t worry, washing the shampoo out of your hair won’t be a problem.

There are many worthwhile benefits to switching to a low-flow showerhead, especially since newer models have fixed the initial low-pressure issues that many people disliked with older models. With the combination of cost savings each year, a new model will pay for itself a few times over in the first year alone.
