Over the past several years, technology has played an important role in the development of kitchen and bathroom products. These products not only make using these rooms in your home more comfortable, but they also use less energy and have the potential to save you money on your utility bills. Whether you have an older home, or your house is fairly new, here are some reasons you may want to consider upgrading some of the plumbing fixtures or appliances in your kitchen and bathroom spaces.
Does your home still have its original water heater? If so, and you plan to move in the near future, you may want to consider upgrading to a newer, energy-efficient model. As of April 2015, manufacturers are required to follow new government guidelines that are designed to help all kinds of water heaters – electric, gas, and tankless – make better use of energy and water consumption. A new water heater that will cost less to operate not only attracts more buyers, but it can add dollar signs to your home’s worth.
The use of electronic leak detection equipment, video camera inspection gear, and other plumbing tools makes it easier for homeowners to identify potential weaknesses within their homes’ plumbing systems before a catastrophic event occurs. Incidents like busted sewer lines and slab leaks can be devastating to your home’s structure and your savings. The good news is that most homeowners can get ahead of the problem by taking advantage of technology and scheduling regular inspections with their local plumbing service.
Spending money on services like leak detection or products like a new water heater may not seem very exciting. Let’s be honest. These upgrades and precautions are necessary, but they don’t offer instant gratification, comfort, and styles like a new toilet that includes LED lighting in the toilet bowl or a touch-free kitchen faucet. New technology can take your kitchen and bathroom spaces from ordinary to remarkable, one-of-a-kind living spaces in less than 48 hours. Whether you’re interested in upgrading fixtures, purchasing energy-efficient products, or investigating possible weak spots in your system, give your local, friendly plumber at Rooter Hero Plumbing a call today.
