3 Plumbing Resolutions for the New Year
Posted on December 18th, 2015
A New Year is just around the corner, and you know what that means: New Year’s Resolutions! Instead of vowing to go to the gym more often or putting yourself on a diet, why not resolve to treat your home’s plumbing system a little better?
Here are three ways to do so:
1. Be more eco-friendly. When it comes to upgrading plumbing appliances, always look for the ENERGY STAR label. They’ll be more energy efficient and use less water. Also, avoid commercial drain cleaners at all costs — they contain harsh chemicals that can hurt your pipes and the environment.
2. Give your water heater a checkup. Did you know that you should flush your home’s water heater once a year? There’s no better time to give your trusty appliance a little TLC than in the New Year! If you require assistance, give us a call; the plumbing experts of Plumbing Medic are happy to help.
3. Look for leaks. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “The average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.” Resolving to locate and repair all leaks isn’t just good for planet Earth, but also for your wallet.
It’s almost 2016. Isn’t it about time you fine-tuned your home’s plumbing system? Don’t hesitate to contact Plumbing Medic for everything from water heater repair to drain cleaning:
