The demand of copper is rising dramatically, along with the price. This has caused some people to doubt whether copper is worth using in homes anymore. In a recent survey conducted by the Copper Development Association (CDA), a majority of Americans still think the benefits of copper make it worth being used. Some of these benefits include:

1) When used for frequently touched objects, such as doorknobs, copper kills dangerous germs and bacteria.
2) Copper improves indoor air quality and reduces energy consumption when it is used in the heating and AC systems.
3) Copper is totally recyclable.
