Save On Water with Plumbing Maintenance

Save On Water 01Lowering our water usage is a goal that everyone should have.

Not only will it save you money by lowering your water bills, it’s also good for the environment.

If you want to save on your water bill and reduce your impact on the environment, we’ve got some handy tips to help:

Switch Out Your Toilet

Statistics show that the toilet is the biggest water-consuming component in the home.

American homes see 40 percent of their annual water usage go straight down the toilet.

Luckily, that number is going down each year, thanks to smart people replacing their old toilets with new, energy-efficient models.

Synergy’s Service certified plumbers have a variety of low-flow toilet offerings, to get the right fit for your home.

Check Your Faucets

Just like toilets, faucets have now been updated to offer low-flow models.

You can reduce your water usage by having a new, energy-efficient model installed in your home.

If your faucets are new or if you simply don’t want to change them out, it’s important to make sure that they have functioning aerators.

Aerators are devices placed inside the head of the faucet to aerate the water. The air they add means that less water is consumed.

Remember to add aerators to the faucets in your tubs and showers, as well as your sinks.

Synergy Service of Nashville’s expert plumbers can fit each of your sinks with aerators that will lower your water consumption and your monthly bill.

Change out Your Showerheads

One of the best ways to save water in your home is to add low-flow showerheads to your showers.

Just consider the following figures: an old-fashioned showerhead uses 4.5 gallons of water per minute, while a the new low-flow models use only 2.5 gallons of water per minute.

Those two gallons of water you’ll save each minute with a low-flow showerhead will save your family 20,000 gallons of wasted water per year.

With Synergy Service’s list of pre-qualified vendors, plus our team of expert plumbers, you can enjoy lower water bills and less water consumption in no time.

Leaks and Condensation

Save On Water 02It’s easy to notice a leak at your kitchen faucet or bathroom sink, but what about the rest of your house?

Your water heater, water softener, filtration system, washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator, and any other water connection point has the potential to spring a costly leak.The crawlspace under your home is another spot where a leak can be costly and yet still overlooked.

A crawlspace leak can not only cause damage to surrounding areas, but can also lead to standing water. It might not seem like a big deal, but standing water can cause mold and bacteria to grow, contaminating the air quality in your home.

Our team of expert plumbers is eager to inspect & consult with you to repair any leaks and resolve any issues.

Don’t Run the Faucet When You Don’t Need To

Since water has typically been such a cheap utility, many of us have the bad habit of wasting it.

One of the worst offenses is running the faucet unnecessarily.

If you run the tap while you brush your teeth, it’s time to stop. If you let the shower run while you brush your hair or clip your toenails, it’s time to stop. Eliminating these water-wasting habits can have a big impact on your water bill.

Adding low-flow installations can also improve your water bill and consumption.

Proper home maintenance (and following these simple tips) will help keep your family water efficient.
