Many individuals take their plumbing system for granted until a major issue surfaces. Most plumbing companies receive frantic service calls from customers who are experiencing water leaks, clogged drains, backed-up toilets, and more. In addition to major water emergencies causing frustration and inconvenience, most of these events seem to take place during the middle of the night or on weekends or holidays. This “poor timing” can be expensive since some plumbing companies charge more money for after-hour services. Fortunately, there is one thing you can do to help prevent water emergencies and save money on your energy bills: sign up for a Scottsdale plumbing maintenance program.

Lower Your Energy Bills

By signing up for Scottsdale plumbing maintenance services, you will be pleased to find that your energy bills decrease. The savings can be attributed to at least one or more of the following three reasons:

  • Having your water heater regularly inspected and maintained will keep it working in top condition. Your water heater is responsible for approximately 15 percent of your energy bill. Therefore, making sure your water heater runs efficiently will save you money.
  • Regular inspection of your plumbing system will identify any small or large leaks. Leaks and other plumbing problems, such as running toilets, waste water and contribute to increased water bills.
  • Regular maintenance of your plumbing system will extend the life of your equipment. This means your system will continue to operate efficiently which will help decrease your monthly energy bills.

Water Heater Specifics

Because your water heater is a significant part of maintaining a comfortable home, a maintenance program that provides water heater plumbing services is paramount. It is helpful to have a certified plumber inspect your water heater on a regular basis to check for proper function and potential leaks. Most water heaters are beyond repair if the leak has caused rust to accumulate in the bottom portion of the storage tank. The plumber will likely recommend replacement of your old water heater with a newer, more efficient model. This replacement will also save you money on your energy bills.

One of the best decisions you can make is signing up for regular maintenance service with a professional plumbing company. In addition to saving money on bills, you will prevent major plumbing repairs.
