New Year, New Plumbing Upgrades to Consider in Abbeville, New Iberia, and Lafayette

New plumbing upgrades are a great way to ring in the year and can help you save money on utilities while increasing the value of your home. Even small plumbing upgrades can make big differences in the aesthetics of your home as well as its energy efficiency.

At Pipes and Plugs your family’s comfort and safety is our top priority, which is why our courteous and professional plumbers go the extra mile in helping you decide which plumbing upgrades are best for you. We’re here to help you save money and our expert knowledge of high efficiency plumbing fixtures can help you do just that.

Here are a few plumbing upgrades to consider for the New Year.

In the bathroom

The bathroom is a hotspot for water wasting, with the average person using 80 to 100 gallons of water or more each day. Simply upgrading to energy efficient plumbing fixtures such as high efficiency faucets, low flow showerheads, low flush toilets can dramatically reduce your water usage. Though these kinds of fixtures have been available for a while, there are now a number of ultra-efficient fixtures that use even less water without compromising performance. These WaterSense fixtures have been tested and approved by the Environmental Protect Agency under strict guidelines and are up to 20% more efficient than other water-saving fixtures.

In the kitchen

In the average four person household, faucet water usage accounts for 15% to 18% of the home’s overall water usage, so it only makes sense to install a high efficiency faucet. Low flow kitchen faucets can cut your water usage in the kitchen in half! Some ultra-efficient models are motion sensor operated or use foot pedals for added convenience. A quick and easy way to make any kitchen faucet more efficient is to upgrade the small screen screwed onto the end, known as the aerator. While you’re at it, you may want to consider upgrading your garbage disposal. They can take a beating over time, and older ones are more likely to cause plumbing problems.

Everywhere else

Maybe it’s time for a new hot water heater? Perhaps even a tankless water heater depending on your hot water needs? They’re known for their energy efficiency! With the popularity of drinking spring or purified water and growing concerns over water quality, installing a whole house water filter is an excellent way to ensure clean, filtered water free of chemicals and pollutants emerges from every water source in your home. A great way to make sure your basement or crawlspace stays dry even if the power goes out is to upgrade to a battery backup sump pump, which can help safeguard your home against flood or water damage.
