Are you remodeling a bathroom in your Bedminster home? The plumbing fixtures and appliances that you choose are important since they will be in your home for a long time. Because a bathroom or kitchen remodel will add value to your home, you want to get the fixtures that will improve your home the most without spending a large amount of money.
To get the most cost-efficient upgrades, the plumbing experts at Carney Plumbing, Heating & Cooling have included a few suggestions to keep in mind.
Water-saving plumbing fixtures and appliances have improved over time. Now you can use less water without sacrificing performance. Dual-flush toilets will add value to your bathroom because compared to standard models, they save as much as 50% of the water use with every flush!
Installing low-flow faucets and fixtures can also provide up to 60% in water usage and utility savings. These are also a great option if you have decided to upgrade to a tankless water heater since they help increase the efficiency of the tankless water heater if they have to produce less hot water for every application.
While you may not have thought of it, you may want to consider installing a tankless water heater as part of your remodeling project. Tankless models do not have the heat loss that you get with a traditional tank model. As mentioned above, a tankless water heater works well with low-flow plumbing fixtures.
You have two options: A single unit that is used to heat all the water in your home. Or you can choose to install individual units located near the hot water applications that use the most water, such as a washing machine or dishwasher.
