Water and energy are inextricably linked. It takes a lot of energy to purify and move water, and it takes a lot of water to make electrical energy, about a third of the fresh potable water uses in our country. Of the water on our planet, only 1% is fresh and potable. The Great Lakes represents one-fifth of that total amount of potable water. With pressure on water resources greater than ever, it is important to be respectful of this precious resource.
Meadowlark Energy helps our homeowners use up to 70% less water without compromising performance. With municipal water systems, this can also represent a significant savings on your water bill. Less water use equals less energy use as well, as hot water takes energy to make and use.
When low-flow water systems are combined with efficient hot water heaters and heat recovery drains, we can create a system that uses significantly less water and energy to operate the home. These upgrades can have a rapid payoff, and frequently homeowners will report greater appreciation of their plumbing systems in the process.
