This time of year is usually the time when everyone starts getting a list of things together. Things they would like to accomplish this next year. Perhaps getting to the gym more often, buying a house, or even just changing simple daily bad habits. When making this new year’s resolutions don’t forget about your plumbing system. Planning to change some habits or improve some simple things could save you some money this up and coming year.

One thing to try and pay more attention to this year is your garbage disposal. Throw the correct items in there. This can save you some money when it comes to clogs or items that could damage your disposal. Learn what can go at your disposal and what doesn’t. Also, be sure to run water when you use your disposal to cut waste buildup.

Toilets are not trash cans. This means that not everything needs to be tossed down there just because it seems more convenient. Out of sight, out of mind is sometimes a good quote to go by but not in this case. Throwing away certain items such as feminine hygiene products, paper towels, hair and many other things that are meant for the trash can cause mild to severe clogs.

Conserving water is a lot easier than most would think. Even a simple adjustment such as turning the water off when brushing teeth can save as many as 3,000 gallons of water a year. Saving water is better for the environment as well as your water bill. By changing a few habits it makes a big impact on your water bill at the end of every month.

Lastly, if a plumbing issue starts to occur in your home or place of work it’s better to address it right away than wait for the problem to get bigger as time goes on as well as the price. Something as simple or little as a drip on a faucet or slow draining could turn into a bigger plumbing issue that would end up costing more than just getting it down when it first occurs. If a plumbing issue were to happen be sure to call Express Plumbing Heating & Air and we will make sure that your new year will start off the right way!
