These tables were tucked in and among the permanent design displays in the . I sat in a beautifully appointed “show bathroom” alongside a whirlpool tub eating a freshly grilled bulgogi skewer on kimchi and sipping at a magnificent Pinot Noir. Guys. It was so beautiful and I was so comfortable I almost drew myself a bath. Two days after the event, I went back to the Design Center just to wander around and more carefully admire all of the beautiful looks and rooms they had put together. I loved the opportunity to try out different combinations of shower heads and faucets. I am formulating an idea for a minor DIY kitchen project that will make a major impact on my kitchen efficiency because of my time in the Design Center.
National Fuel Gas Co., beginning next year, will start offering free low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators that reduce the use of hot water to residential customers who take part in the Amherst energy company’s other programs aimed at reducing energy consumption.
The addition of the low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators to the company’s energy-efficiency program for residential and low-income customers, disclosed late last month in a filing with the state Public Service Commission, is the latest change to the company’s programs to reduce the consumption of natural gas by National Fuel’s customers.
Low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators are viewed by PSC officials as an inexpensive way of saving energy, with a potential payback that can be seven to 10 times the modest cost of the equipment, depending on how much water a customer uses. The greater the water use, the greater the potential savings.
