Home improvement is a popular trend, and for good reason. Each family uses their home differently. By adapting and personalizing yours to your family’s particular tastes and habits, your home can be much more enjoyable and convenient to use. And you can raise the value of your house if you choose your projects wisely.
Some improvement projects make the home more efficient or entertaining for your family without adding any real value to your property. But if you do your research beforehand, you can find a home upgrade that will do both. Plumbing service upgrades are the perfect choice, since they often increase your property value when professionally installed.
Choosing a professional plumbing service in Mesa, AZ with experience to upgrade your home is always the smartest option for home and business owners. Your household relies on your plumbing system to work properly every day, so make sure your plumbing service technician is qualified to do the work. That guarantees that you will receive solid, long-lasting results that will serve your family for years to come.
Your bathrooms are the perfect place to begin your plumbing updates.
Make your bathroom look more appealing, whether you plan to sell the house soon or keep it in the family for generations!
Replace Your Outdated Bathroom Appliances
Is your bathroom starting to look old and worn out? Bring your bathroom back to life with new appliances! When you replace your old tub, shower, sink, and toilet, your bathroom will gain major style points. With shiny new appliances in modern colors with additional features, you will increase the value of your home substantially.
Besides making your bathrooms look exciting and new, having a plumbing service replace your outdated appliances can save you money on your monthly utility bills. New bathroom appliances have stricter codes than in decades past, with a focus on energy efficiency and water conservation. For example, a toilet manufactured before 1982 can use between five and eight gallons of water per flush. If your toilet was manufactured after 1982, it is more efficient, using between 2.5 and 3.6 gallons of water with every flush. This was a major improvement but one that needed more work.
Modern toilets are required to use much less water. In fact, it takes just 1.6 gallons to flush new toilets. Since your home’s toilets are the biggest user of water, this can make a huge difference in the amount of water needed to run your household. When you factor in the savings, this is one improvement that can pay for itself over the years.
Energy Efficient Upgrades
Once you transform the look of your bathrooms, make certain you optimize your water usage.
Environmentally-friendly bathroom fixtures can maximize your energy savings every month. Low-flow faucets and showerheads are a less expensive upgrade that provides superior savings on both water and utility bills.
How much can a plumbing service switching you to low-flow bathroom fixtures save? By just switching your old showerhead to a low-flow model, you can save between 30 and 60%, when compared to one using 2.5 gallons per minute.
Your home’s kitchen is where your family gathers to talk, laugh, and make memories together. Make your kitchen even better by investing in updates that will make your home worth more.
Invest in modern technology to save water and keep your money in your wallet.
Outfit your kitchen with modern low-flow faucets for a quick update that will lower your water bills. When you make just this one change to your kitchen, you reduce your water usage to around 1.5 gallons of water per minute. When you think about how often your faucet is used, that can add up to considerable savings.
If you haven’t taken a stroll down the plumbing aisle lately, you may be surprised by the new additions you see. There have been many advances in kitchen appliances that can make your kitchen look like it belongs to a chef. Choose new stainless steel refrigerators, freezers, and ovens for a stylish, professional look. Or opt for specialized cooking gear that caters to your adventurous side. Be sure to look for the energy rating on your new appliances, so you can make the most of your investment.
Your pipes are largely hidden, making them easy to forget. But they are the foundation of your entire plumbing system, so take care of them.
Modernized Plumbing System
Plumbers are restricted to using certain materials for your pipes today for public safety. That was not always the case, however. Pipes made from lead, cast iron, and galvanized steel, for example, were used to make pipes before their full dangers were known.
If you have an older home, your plumbing service can inspect your plumbing system to check for outdated pipes. Likely, many sections of an older home have been replaced due to breakdown in certain areas. However, you need to make certain all the old, dangerous materials have been removed from your system, for the health of everyone in your house.
Plumbing Service Additions
Many Mesa, AZ homeowners are looking for ways to enjoy every bit of their property. Plumbing service additions are a wonderful way to make your property worth more.
In today’s world, a laundry room is a basic necessity. It allows you a place to store your laundry, both dirty and clean, away from sight of your guests. Adding a laundry room raises both the efficiency and value of your home.
Add a Bathroom
