Your Plumber and Climate Change

With warnings about climate change becoming frequent, how could we contribute to saving our ?

Recycling, planting trees and plants, using your car less, eating less meat are all part of what each individual can do to reduce your carbon footprint. But did you know that your plumber can be one of your allies in the battle that could see Dublin underwater by 2080.

My plumber? Yes, your plumber is already thinking of ways that can help you be part of that fight, and it could save you money too.

Some of the ways that your plumbing and heating expert can help are listed below, but always remember that it is vital to use a fully registered plumber.

Some of the simplest ways that your plumber can help is at the heart of your home – your gas or oil boiler. Serviced regularly it then uses the fuel more efficiently, reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) output and your bills.

Depending on age and condition it could be that you need a new boiler. New boiler types have a lower carbon footprint and all that we at Kieron Murphy Plumbing and Heating are rated ‘A’ for their CO2 impact.

Added to their intelligent, flexible control systems these boilers will also save you money in the long run. In addition, when we fit a new boiler we will flush and descale the existing system, thereby removing sludge, debris and corrosion, making it more efficient and reducing running costs.

As experts in solar panel installation we can help lower your carbon footprint through this renewable energy source. Solar power is becoming more and more efficient over the past few years, but we are able to advise on whether it will be a worthwhile investment and what grants may be available from Irish government.

What about your water. As long as the taps run, the toilet flushes and you can have your morning shower it is easy to take your water supply for granted, right? But, when problems arise, whether an emergency call-out or something less urgent you should ask your plumber to audit and examine your entire plumbing system.

Hidden leaks, inefficiencies, water pressure too high or too low – these are some things that can lurk behind the walls. What we do not always realise is the environmental cost of getting water to your tap is quite high. By making sure your water is used efficiently you can reduce that cost and maybe even reduce bills.

Your plumber – the unexpected environmental champion!
