March Product Showcase: High-Efficiency Toilets (HETs)

post img

This March, Comfort-Air Engineering and Primo Plumbing are highlighting a game-changer in home water savings: high-efficiency Toilets, or HETs for short. They are all about getting the most bang for your buck with every flush, saving water and money in the process. This March, we are emphasizing the critical role HETs play in conserving water and promoting sustainable living.

In Texas, where the climate can vary widely, and water resources are precious, every gallon saved is crucial. Traditional toilets use about 1.6 gallons of water per flush, but HETs reduce this to 1.28 gallons or even less. This reduction might seem minor, but it accumulates to substantial water savings over time.

Why HETs Are a Wise Choice:

  • Significant water savings: HETs use up to 20% less water per flush than standard toilets, translating to savings of thousands of gallons per household each year.
  • Cost efficiency: This water saving can reduce water bills, potentially saving homeowners hundreds of dollars annually.
  • Enhanced performance: Despite using less water, HETs provide effective flushing, clearing the bowl efficiently without multiple flushes.


What kind of water savings can I expect with an HET?

An average family can save approximately 4,000 to 6,000 gallons of water annually, significantly impacting water conservation and utility bills.

Does HETs’ reduced water usage compromise their flushing power?

No, HETs are designed to be highly efficient with strong flushing power. They use sophisticated engineering to ensure that less water is used without sacrificing performance.

What factors should I consider when selecting an HET?

Consider the gallon-per-flush rating, toilet size, design, and additional features like dual flush options or low-noise models. Comfort-Air Engineering and Primo Plumbing can guide you through the selection process to find an HET that fits your home’s specific needs.

Embrace the Efficiency of High-Efficiency Toilets

Upgrading to a HET is not just about conserving water; it’s about adopting a lifestyle that values resource efficiency and environmental responsibility. With HETs, homeowners in Texas can save an average of 20,000 gallons of water over the toilet’s lifetime. This shift aligns with statewide efforts to manage water resources wisely and provides tangible benefits in terms of utility bill savings and improved home value.

Comfort-Air Engineering and Primo Plumbing are at the forefront of this sustainable transition, offering a wide range of HETs that suit various preferences and budgets. We provide expert advice and professional installation services, ensuring your move to a high-efficiency toilet is smooth and beneficial.
