How Plumbing Can Save You Money

February 5, 2020 | Blog

When thinking about home upgrades, beauty or functionality are usually some of the most common motives. But with a few upgrades, new plumbing is an investment in itself – and can save you money.

What Plumbing Upgrades Can Save You Money:

  • Low-Flow Toilets: When comparing low-flow toilets to the traditional toilets, low-flow have smaller tanks which allow for greater efficiency. In a traditional toilet, 3.4 gallons of water are wasted per flush. Comparatively, low-flow toilets use about 1.6 gallons per flush. With a quick and easy installation, a high-efficiency toilet can save up to $2,200 during its lifetime, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
  • Tankless Water Heaters: With a tankless water heater system, you can save up to 15 percent annually on energy costs. A tankless system means your hot water is provided on demand. With no use for storage, you save space. Tankless water heaters also last twice as long as a traditional unit.
  • Garbage Disposal: Homes without a garbage disposal mean it’s tough to get rid of unwanted waste. You can also rack up some expensive exterminator bills due to pesky infestations from bugs such as cockroaches and fruit flies.

What Plumbing Upgrades Can Increase Your Property Value:

Replacement Toilets:

There are a few tell-tale signs to let you know that your toilets are past their prime:

  • Inconsistent flushing
  • Leaks
  • Water is constantly running

Buying an eco-friendly toilet will modernize your house as well as save money on energy costs.

Pipe Insulation:

If you’re trying to save money and make your house more buyer-friendly, then adding additional insulation is the way to go. Adding insulation will help from hot water cooling down and will extend the heater’s life.

Quick Response Time

The response from Gotelli Plumbing was excellent. The next time Tom arrived right on time and the quality of his work was outstanding. When he finished he walked me through everything he had done and I could not have been more pleased with the results. I’m so thankful to have such professionals available when need and on such short notice.

Excellent Service

Tom provided excellent service. He is obviously experienced- and quickly solved the problem. Our gas had to be shut off, so we were without our stove to cook, furnace to heat and hot water. Our home is happy again!

Keith B.

Tom of Gotelli Plumbing provided superb service for us in replacing a very balky tub spout, and worn out toilet parts. Not only was he extremely professional and thorough but he was able to answer all my questions concerning the service. I would give 6 stars if I could.

Water heater died just in time for Thanksgiving company to arrive. Gotelli sent Joey out first thing this morning. Not only was Joey a super nice guy, he fixed our heater quickly and for $450 less than a competitors bid. Will be going to these guys for all of our plumbing needs in the future!
