A plumbing contractor should the first person you contact if you’re looking for a way to improve efficiency in your home just in time for spring. The pains of a low-efficiency plumbing system can be many. And while they may all seem small, together they can create a giant headache for homeowners. It can be especially agonizing if you are experiencing problems with the fixtures you rely on every day. This includes toilets, sinks, showers, washers, dryers, and more. Older toilets use much more water than newer models to do the same job and this not only wastes water, it can increase your water bill by hundreds of dollars over the life of the toilet. Likewise, new shower heads not only offer more pressure than older models, they use much less water. The longer you allow these problems to persist, you may also face higher utility bills which will see you lose a considerable amount of savings. Worse, you may also risk your health and safety. Older appliances such as dishwashers  are not only less efficient but are made from outdated technology putting your family’s safety at risk.  With spring finally here, now is the time to make a change in your plumbing system for the better, and you need a professional service company to help!

What Should You Consider Installing This Spring?

Here are 5 fixtures you absolutely should consider if you’re looking to bring your home’s plumbing system to new heights:

  1. Upgrade Leaky Pipes and Faucets: A leaky faucet can waste up to 20 gallons of water a day, which may result in money losses accumulating to the point of no return. Leaky pipes and faucets are also a breeding ground for mold, which can lead to serious breathing and respiratory problems. Plus, the water damage caused by leaky fixtures can end up costing tens of thousands of dollars to fix.
  2. Insulate Pipes: When carrying hot water to plumbing fixtures, heat can get lost along the way. Pipe insulation helps to lower the heat loss. You can reduce your water heater temperature to 120-degrees or lower. While paying someone to insulate the pipes in your home may not make economic sense, it’s a great option to consider during new construction or a major remodel.
  3. Tankless Water Heaters: Tankless water heaters only heat water when needed. While these units can be expensive, their energy-saving capabilities outweigh the upfront cost. A typical water heater keeps 40 to 50 gallons of water hot at all times. As you can imagine, this simply isn’t an efficient no matter which way you look at it.
  4. Low-Flow Faucets: Replacing your current sink faucets with low-flow faucets can save water without reducing water pressure. In fact, these new fixtures can drop water usage from 2.5 gallons per minute to 1.5 gallons per minute. This will save you up to 13,000 gallons of water a year for a typical household. Some kitchen faucets also offer built-in filtered water features that can help you cut down on your bottled water consumption. Ask our plumbing contractor for more information
  5. High-Efficiency Toilets: More than 40% of U.S. households use older toilets that user 3.5 or more gallons per flush. However, thanks to recent innovations, newer toilets use as little as one gallon per flush and even offer dual flushing capabilities. If you are unsure on your water heater’s level of efficiency, look for the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense label, which shows the toilet has been tested for maximum flushing power.
