Not every reason to call a plumber is an emergency. Many times a plumber can help you lower monthly bills through routine maintenance and plumbing upgrades. If you feel like your home could benefit from a plumber's torch due to age or the use of outdated plumbing fixtures don't hesitate to contact one. There are many things a plumber can do to help you save money, including these four plumbing services.
Water Softener System
A water softener system is designed to remove calcium, limestone, lead, iron, magnesium, and other minerals that occur naturally in the earth as well as sewage or agricultural runoff that may make its way into your home's water supply depending on your location. The minerals make it difficult for home appliances to operate, thus reducing their lifespan by as much as 30 percent. You will also need to use excess soap and shampoo in the shower as these minerals counteract their efforts. By installing a water softener system you can save money on the cost of new appliances and daily use soaps.
A water leak is not only detrimental to your home's health but it can cause huge hikes in your water bill. Water leaks come in several forms, including burst pipes, slab leaks, and even dripping faucets. Signs of a broken pipe include wet spots in the floor or wall, mold growth, and low water supply. Having a plumber fix the leak will keep your water bill regulated.
Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless water heater is a great way to save lots of money and water. These types of water heaters provide hot water on demand, unlike traditional water heaters which waste gallons of water as they heat it up.
Energy Saving Fixtures
Another wonderful way a plumber can save you money is by installing energy-saving water fixtures. This includes low-flow toilets and showerheads. However, there are also energy-saving dishwashers and washing machines available to make your dollar go even further!
