Summer looks like it’s planning on arriving a little early this year. Many business owners find that their water bills go up during the summer. If you want to contain costs, work with your NYC plumber. Preventative maintenance saves money! By addressing plumbing problems in their early stages, you minimize the amount of water waste. This keeps your bills down and your bank account balance happy.
Money Saving Plumbing Tip #1: Repair Leaky Faucets
A tiny drip may not seem like a big deal, but a steadily leaking faucet can cost you up to $200 per year. If your business has multiple faucets – very common if you have customer restrooms, a commercial kitchen, or a hospitality business – those $200 hits add up fast. Have your NYC plumber repair faucets and prevent sending your hard-earned money down the drain. Don’t forget to check showers, bathtubs, and outdoor spigots for faucet leaks: these often go unnoticed by everyone except the water meter!
Money Saving Plumbing Tip #2: Have Your Water Heater Drained
Every year, your water heat should be drained. This process allows any accumulated sediment that may have built up in your water heater to be removed. Sediment makes it harder for your water heater to work properly: it will use more energy to deliver water at your desired temperature. Also, accumulated sediment can shorten the useful life of your water heater. Removing the sediment means your water heater will work better and last longer. Have your NYC plumber reset the water heater’s temperature when you’re having them perform this preventative maintenance task. Reducing the temperature only a few degrees can save you money and still meet all your business needs.
