Upgrading your home helps increase its value as well as making your home a better place to live. Plumbing upgrades can help you complete daily tasks in a more efficient way while also limiting your environmental impact. Working with plumbing to upgrade certain aspects of your home will set you up for success in a new year or a new phase of life. Modern plumbing can help you save on utility bills and prevent water damage to your home. Below are some of the top plumbing upgrades to install in your home this year.
1- Install A New Water Heater
Upgrading your water heater can help you save money on your water bill each month. Tankless water heaters are becoming the best option for homeowners because they are the most energy-efficient and produce hot water on demand.
Working with a plumber will help you choose the right water heater for your home’s unique needs. S&B Plumbing can install traditional water heaters or tankless water heaters for homes or businesses.
2- Replace Your Faucets
Your sinks and other fixtures in your home are plumbing upgrades that are often overdue. Upgrading them to low-flow faucets or showerheads will not only save you money but will help the environment around you. Low-flow fixtures also last much longer than other fixtures because they use less water. This will make your investment more worthwhile.
Another efficient plumbing upgrade is to include non-touch faucets in your kitchen and bathrooms. This will prevent bacteria from collecting on the knobs and make cooking much less messy. Non-touch faucets also prevent drips and water waste.
3- Upgrade Your Water Filter
Water filtration systems are great plumbing upgrades to add to your home. Filters improve the quality of your water and improve the taste of your water. Filters can be installed in a singular spot to have better water in your bathroom, or applied in multiple places to improve all the water you use in your home.
4- Get A Water Conserving Toilet
Energy-efficient options are the modern upgrades that many homeowners are looking for. Newer toilets use fewer gallons of water to help remove waste from your home and also lower your water bills. Many energy-efficient toilets use less than 1.5 gallons per flush compared to 5 gallons per flush in other toilets.
Even if you don’t want to upgrade to a new toilet, having a plumbing inspection and toilet repair can help you use less water. Leaks or running toilets are common in homes, but S&B Plumbing can remedy these issues and get you a more efficient toilet.
5- Build A Second Bathroom
Adding a half bath or a full luxurious bathroom to your home can increase the home value while also helping your home run more efficiently. Especially for families with multiple children or multiple generations living in the home. Building a bathroom with modern fixtures will help in more ways than one.
Plumbing upgrades to include in your new bathroom can include new pipes, new faucets, a rain showerhead, heated tiles, or a jetted tub. S&B Plumbing can install all kinds of plumbing fixtures for your home or bathroom, including:
- Water and sewer lines
- Shut off valves
- Drains and vents
- New fixtures
6- Install Modern Pipes
Older homes may have pipes made out of cheaper material or pipes that have become deteriorated. Replacing your pipes will help improve the water quality of your home and prevent major flooding in your home.
Older pipes could be made out of clay, lead, or galvanized metal. These should be replaced with PVC pipes or copper. Flaking pipes can release metals and materials into your water which can be damaging to your health. Plumbing upgrades can help save you from sickness or unfiltered water.
