They say “April showers bring May flowers” and with the beginning of spring means it’s time for “spring cleaning.” Part of spring cleaning should include taking a look at how you can keep a green and more efficient home. A clean home uses the least amount of energy, saving you money through efficiency as a homeowner. When talking about plumbing saving money and being energy efficient usually means conserving water. Here are some helpful maintenance tips to keep your plumbing as efficient as possible.
Springtime Plumbing Steps For More Efficiency
- Leaky Faucets – Have you noticed dripping from your bathroom or kitchen faucets? Slow drips not only indicate a damaged fixture, but they can waste more water than you may realize. Have an expert plumber inspect the faucet and possibly replace it with a low flow fixture.
- Replace Older Fixtures & Appliances – How long has your water heater been in use? Do you think its time for a new shower head? After many years of service, appliances and fixtures can lose efficiency and not work as well. However, modern systems are specifically designed with you and your home efficiency needs in mind. Consider updating your home to these newer models.
- Practice More Efficient Habits – Better efficiency in your home could be as easy as some simple changes to your routine. Waiting to do laundry until you have full loads can ensure there is less waste of water, as can taking showers instead of baths.
- Plumbing Inspection – Last, but not least, the best way to find ways to improve your plumbing is to have it inspected by a professional. Plumbers can tell you how your system is working if there is any damage, and if there could be a way to improve the amount of water you use in your home.
