If you think of a bathroom remodeling as simply a way to have a more attractive room in your home, there’s a few things you should know. During a bathroom remodel, you can make major improvements to your plumbing that will prevent repairs, give your pipes an extended lifespan, cut back on water waste, and reduce your heating bills. You’ll have a fresh, new looking bathroom—plus a packet of other benefits.
Wm. Henderson Plumbing & Heating Inc. goes beyond the standard plumbing and heating in our company name: we also offer comprehensive bathroom remodeling. We can handle all facets of the remodeling and give you improved plumbing in Springfield, PA.
Here are some of the ways you can improve not only the look of your bathroom, but also the plumbing in it:
Replace old pipes with copper pipes
If you have an older home, it may still have pipes constructed from material prone to corrosion and crumbling over time. With the installation of copper piping, you’ll have pipes that last longer, have natural resistance to corrosion, won’t sag over long stretches, and require very little maintenance. Copper has become the standard in home plumbing for very good reasons.
Upgrade to water-saving appliances
You can stem the amount of water that goes to waste in your home with low-flow faucets and a low-flow toilet. According to the EPA, installing a low-flow faucet can reduce water flow by 30% or more annually. This means an average-sized family can save 700 gallons of water per year, which is the equivalent of 40 showers.
Install a tankless water heater
If you’re interested in lowering your utility bills, consider having a tankless water heater installed when you have your bathroom remodeled. These heating systems provide hot water on demand, so you won’t run out of hot water the way you can with a storage system that keeps the hot water in a tank. Because tankless heaters only use energy when you need water—instead of constantly heating a tank—you’ll save on your utility bills.
