Saving Energy = Saving Money

When we’re feeling rather lavish with our lifestyle, we tend to ignore the “tiny” things in life. Let’s swap out that horrible habit of keeping the lights on and letting your faucet run for no apparent use shall we:

1. Quite the drip

If you have been ignoring the dripping sounds coming from your toilet, you are ignoring the extra money you will be spending when the situation grows. Our local plumbers, SPS can find the cause of your leaking faucet, toilet, and fix it to save you money on your monthly water bill.

2. Automate your heating and cooling systems

Now is a great time to adjust your thermostat so you are utilizing the best use of the extra heating hour of the sun! And if you have a boiler, let SPS do the job to take a look to make sure it is running efficiently. An efficient boiler system will save you money.

3. Get a well water test completed

If you are one of the more than 15 million Australian households relying on private groundwater wells, it’s a good idea to be certain that those wells tested for things such as PH level, iron, and mineral content. SPS experts can provide you with a water analysis on the spot in your home. Testing your water is a great way to save your health!

4. Sump pump testing

Make sure yours will be in working order when it comes to those pesky thunderstorms. With already saturated soil, stormwater will be finding ways into your home, and having a working sump pump can save you thousands in water damage and restoration.

5. Turn down the temperature of your water heater

Lowering your hot water heater temperature to the medium setting can put cash in the bag. Hot water heaters can account for up to 25% of your home’s energy bill. Also, if your water heater is older, it could be operating more wastefully, or has built up sediment. Both can grab money from your pocket. A water heater can last up to 12 years, but if you feel yours is not operating 100%, consider upgrading. Or, consider tankless water heaters. They can save you hundreds of dollars per year in energy costs.

Whatever workload you are facing which requires you to be elsewhere, not giving you the time to readjust or even to solve some issues, SPS is on hand ready to take your call on your schedule to help you make money-saving changes to your plumbing systems. We are a 24/7 plumbing services and we deliver prompt, same day service no matter what time it is on your clock!
