Our Cypress Plumbing Contractors Efficiency Tips
The main goal of every single one of our Cypress plumbing contractors is to make sure that your plumbing system is working as effectively and efficiently as possible. This can mean helping you tweak your water usage in the bathroom by installing a low flow shower head or sink aerator or running a video snake down your drain line to identify the source of your slow kitchen drain.
The key to an efficient plumbing system is making sure that the water travels the shortest distance possible from entering the home until leaving it. During this trip, the water should stay as close to the same temperature as when it began. This usually involves insulating all of the water pipes running from the water heater to other areas of the home. This will keep the water heater from having to work as hard to keep the temperature up.
Of course, forgoing a standard water heater and going with a tankless one instead, is far more efficient as there is no need to keep the water at an elevated temperature for long stretches of time.
These units deliver hot water on demand and take far less energy than their old-school counterparts.
Replacing your existing toilets with the low flow varieties can save you almost 50% on your water bill. That's because the newer models only use an average of 1.2 gallons per flush where older tanks used between 3 and 5 gallons.
These are just a few of the ways that you can make your home more efficient. Having a water usage audit can show you where you are wasting water and how to develop family or company wide strategies to combat it. Some of our most successful clients have cut their water bills by almost 60%. Call our Cypress plumbing contractors and schedule your water usage audit today.
