According to the latest HomeAdvisor survey, the average cost of a licensed plumber in Indiana is between $175 and $450. Installation costs can be significantly higher. The single most contributing factor of needing to hire a plumber is outdated plumbing lines and fixtures. To save on your monthly water usage bill and to prevent unnecessary plumbing replacements, we’ve put together a list of 4 energy-efficient plumbing appliances that will save you money today.

Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters use roughly 40% less energy than traditional tank water heaters. While tankless water heater installation costs are higher than tank water heaters, their life expectancy far exceeds traditional systems. Homeowners can also expect to save about $100 annually on energy bills. This is because tankless systems (also known as on-demand water heaters) are designed to heat water only when the faucet is actually running.
An outdated toilet can be costing you a lot of money every month. An early sign it may be time to update your toilet is if you routinely hear the water kick on (this could also be a sign that the flapper needs to be replaced). A low-flow toilet is meant to reduce the amount of water in your tank and lower the flush rate from 1.6 gallons per flush to 1.28 gallons or less.
Similar to low-flow toilets, today’s plumbing manufacturers have greatly improved showerhead efficiency. One of the leading manufacturers is Delta (we’re big fans of Delta) based out of Indianapolis, Indiana. One such Delta showerhead is the Raincan line which reduces the flow of water through the fixture while not compromising performance. Delta showerheads are available in numerous finishes to fit your style.
Hot Water Recirculation Kit
Becoming increasingly among homeowners is hot water recirculation pumps. These systems are unique in that they conserve water by recirculating hot water in your pipes via a loop system. This system also helps water become available a lot quicker in larger homes with fixtures a fair distance from the water heater.
