The plumbing system in your home is made up of many elements – pipes, valves, and devices — that serve to distribute and regulate the water flow to and from the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room in your home as well as to your home heater. We, at Collins Comfort Masters in Phoenix, take great pride in assisting you in maintaining your home plumbing system and encourage you to consider the following plumbing maintenance tips.
1. Catch and Rectify Leaks
Whether large or small, all leaks in your home can do serious damage and compromise the safety and structure of your home. Leaking water can cause mold and mildew to develop, as well as increase the risk of wood rot, which can greatly affect the strength of wood structures in your home. Identifying any leak and then doing a proper leak repair is pivotal for preventing these major issues.
2. Insulate Your Water Heater
An important part of your plumbing system is your water heater which enables you to have cool or warm water on demand all around your house. Most water heaters keep the water they contain at a prescribed water temperature at all times. The utility costs associated with this constant temperature regulation can be reduced with the installation of water heater insulation. Acting as a blanket, this insulation can help efficiently maintain the temperature of your water supply without running up energy costs.
Maintaining your home plumbing system is an important aspect of responsible home ownership. Ensuring a safe and efficient plumbing system for you and your family is something that we at Collins Comfort Masters would love to help you with. Call us today!
