The accelerated exhaustion of natural resources warrants us to embark on energy efficient technologies to save these valuable resources while we still have time. Advent of new and eco friendly technologies assists in making a better use of the existing facilities and turning them into eco friendly alternatives that cause less harm to the nature. It’s not a new concept in the US and energy efficient shower heads are attracting lot of attention and foraying into other developed and developing countries.
While I’m not a big fan of gadgets for gadgets’ sake, I believe this water saving device deserves consideration by anyone trying to cut home energy use and water use. In any situation where water rates are high (such as dry climates in the US southwest) or the cost of heating water is high (either because of the high temperature difference, in cold climates, between intake and hot water tank, or because of high energy prices), a showerhead adapter such as the Evolve shower head valve can make already energy efficient shower heads even more efficient. We need to learn to think of such devices as investments not as expenses, and an investment that earns its principal back within the first year just keeps on producing profit every year afterwards. And based on the sturdy chrome construction and the simplicity of the design of this shower head valve, chances are it will last you many years.
The effectiveness of shower heads can be measured in terms of sustained water flow, speed of ensuing water, the size of the shower head, spray dispersion and the ratio of pressure conversion inside the head to flow outside. Let’s check out some of the pioneers in designing and manufacturing energy efficient shower heads:
Each kit included three LED light bulbs, a power strip, which according to Smeltz should be used on high end electronics like TV and computer systems, an energy efficient shower head and five minute shower timer.
