Bidets were designed to help people freshen up without taking a shower or a bath. They were most likely invented in the early 1700’s, before a fully plumbed bathroom became common. Ladies loved the convenience of being able to rinse off after a visit to the chamber pot. Although the bidet is most commonly used to wash the genital region, some people also use this handy gadget to wash their feet.
Today, the bidet has evolved quite a bit. You can find a bidet attachment for your toilet that eliminates the need for a separate fixture in crowded bathrooms. Japan went a step further and actually made a toilet, bidet and dryer combination that eliminated the need for toilet paper. This toilet is very popular in many homes worldwide. In fact, actor Will Smith has proudly announced more than once that he has tossed out his toilet paper in favor of this Japanese innovation.
People who are trying to go green point out that using a bidet saves thousands of trees and millions of gallons of water a year. Even though the bidet uses water to rinse you off, it is much less water than the number of gallons needed to create toilet paper. In addition, eco-friendly bidets help you avoid the harsh chemicals that are needed to make toilet paper so white.
American Standard Bidet
The American Standard bidet comes in several styles and many colors. You can find wall mounting or floor mounting models made from vitreous china, which is quite durable. There are space saving rounded models and roomy rectangular models. If you want a really sleek and flashy bidet, you can shop for quite a few different fixture upgrades, such as a chrome and brass one piece faucet.
We use 36.5 billions rolls of toilet paper in the U.S. each year, this represents at least 15 million trees pulped. This also involves 473,587,500,000 gallons of water to produce the paper and 253,000 tons of chlorine for bleaching purposes. The manufacturing process requires about 17.3 terawatts of electricity annually. Also, there is the energy and materials involved in packaging and transporting the toilet paper to households across the country.
Toilet paper also constitutes a significant load on the city sewer systems, and water treatment plants. It is also often responsible for clogged pipes. In septic systems, the elimination of toilet paper would mean the septic tank would need to be emptied much less often.
Basically, the huge industry of producing toilet paper could be eliminated through the use of bidets(at least most of it). Instead of using toilet paper, a bidet sprayer cleans your posterior using a jet of water. You can use toilet paper to dry off with, which would be a fraction of your normal use, or you can use a towel which actually works even better.
Most of us can’t imagine living without toilet paper. The average American uses over 100 single rolls—about 21,000 sheets—each year.
Finally, do the math. How much would you save each week and then month if you stopped buying toilet paper completely? And this saving will just keep going on and on.“Bidet Toilet And Hand Bidet Sprayers”

Our total usage is 2135 kilowatt hours, last month it was 2949, and it has not been any warmer here.
I also stress tested this thing (the Power-Save 1200) against what we did a year ago and it’s down substantially from about 150 kilowatt hours per day and now we’re down to 76-77 per day.

Solar Powered Attic Fans – Free Heat Removal From Your Loft Saves you Big Bucks on Air Conditioning.

A Solar Powered Attic Fan is an environmentally friendly way to cool and protect your attic and roof. The Solar Powered Attic Fan will save you up to 30% on your cooling costs. During the hot Summer months, the temperature in your Attic can exceed 160 degrees. Small passive Roof vents are often woefully inadequate at dissipating this heat. The attic acts like a giant radiator passing excess heat back into your living spaces, driving temperatures and cooling costs through the roof. In cold climates the heat trapped in your attic in the Winter months can even melt the snow that accumulates on your roof. As the water trickles down, it can re-freeze at the cooler eaves leading to destructive and costly ice-damming. Any good Attic Fan installation will improve your comfort level and should pay for itself within 3 years. “Solar Powered Attic Fans “

Today’s Eco-tip is about tank type hot water heater insulation.

Most tank type water heaters are quite inefficient and will cost you hundreds of dollars per year in standby heat losses. To stop this, you can also insulate your water heater storage tank.

You know how to find out if your water heater is loosing heat? Just touching your tank, and if it feels warm then its loosing heat and needs additional insulation.

Insulating blankets can be purchase from most hardware stores, which have an insulating value of about R-8. This will reduce your heat loss by about 25% which will save you about 4% in water heating cost.

*Electric Water Heaters:
These blankets are very easy to install and most people can do it themselves. You simply wrap it around your electric water tank, being very careful to leave the access panels uncovered. Also be sure to keep the temperature set below 130°F (preferably 120°-110°) to keep the electrical wires from overheating.

*Gas Water Heaters:
If you have a gas water heater this insulation is a bit more difficult. I recommend that you have a qualified plumbing and heating contractor install this insulation. This insures you in case of a fire. If you insist on doing it yourself please follow the directions here:

*You should also consider putting a piece of rigid insulation under the water heater tank for an additional 4%-9% of water heating energy savings, as this will help eliminate heat loss through the floor. Thermwell SP57-11C Water Heater Blanket Fits Up to 60 gallon Tank
