A Few Tips To Help You Save Money
There are some really great sayings out there about foolishly parting with your money. Flushing money down the drain is one of our favorites. That would be our plumbing humor talking. But seriously, how can you save money in your Oshawa home with a licensed plumber? Here’s a few tips and tricks to get you saving a couple bucks every month on your water bill.
Check Your Toilets
A running toilet can be your worst enemy. We have seen a tiny little water leak or a running toilet triple a Oshawa water bill in 1 month. No joke. We have seen water bills over $300 because of a tiny little leak in the back of a tank of an old toilet. New toilets are relatively inexpensive to install. If you suspect a leak or if a plumber has recommended that you should change your inefficient toilet, this is one that you should jump on right away. A running toilet will literally have you flushing your hard-earned dollars down the drain in a hurry.
A leaking tap is another huge dollar waster. That insignificant little drop that falls out of your tub faucet, kitchen tap, shower head, garden hose or old laundry faucet can actually start costing you a lot of money in the long run. Leaking taps are generally simple and easy to have repaired by a licensed plumber and should not be left to drip constantly.
Hot Water Heater
Another way to save big bucks in your home is deciding whether you need to upgrade your current mid efficiency hot water heater into a more efficient model or even going to a tankless on demand hot water system. New hot water tanks are generally more efficient than ones from 10 years ago. Tankless hot water systems are generally quite costly at the beginning. But you may find on the long run you are actually saving quite a bit of money and heating costs as well as on your Oshawa water bill.
A Few More Money Saving Tips
Thought not exactly plumbing related, there are also a few other ways that you can save money. A dishwasher generally actually uses less water than hand washing all your dishes. You can also use gray water to water your plants inside and out. Not letting the water run when you wash your hair or brush your teeth is another little coin saver.
We hope you like these tips and tricks and can put them to use in your home in Oshawa. When your plumbing starts to go awry, always know that John the Plumber Oshawa is just a phone call away.
