Save 20 Percent With Home Renovations!

Want to Save Money Through Bathroom Remodeling?

Marietta Bathroom RemodelThe monthly bills are a necessary evil in the world of living in a home. With a mortgage, a car payment, and the many jobs that pop up with owning a home; reducing whatever bills a home owner can is to their advantage. If a person who owns a home can reduce all of their monthly bills, home owner has more money in their pocket to not only work on their house, but it also enables them to plan for the future. Every home can reduce their monthly bills simply by remodeling their bathroom.

The only room in the house that may use up more of the monthly bills than the bathroom is the kitchen. Every time someone walks into the bathroom the utility meters start rolling. The toilet is used the most and is the first place to start with reducing the monthly bills. The toilet uses a lot of water to flush and increases the water bill each time it flushes. If a low fill water efficient toilet is installed, this toilet alone can reduce the water bill by almost 25%. A normal toilet flushes 4.5 gallons per flush where as the low flush toilet only uses 1.6 gallons per flush. That creates a savings of about 3 gallons per flush. As soon as the faucets are turned on the water bill starts pouring out of your pocket.

Energy efficient and water efficient faucets and shower heads increases the water pressure so that the water pressure while at the same time using less water and less heat energy from the water heater. This helps solve both the electric and water bills. With these two changes alone, the home owner decreases the water bill by almost 50% and the electric bill by 10%. When these items are added to installing energy saving LED lights and energy efficient windows which allow less heat and air escape out the window, the homeowner’s monthly bills have the ability to be lowered by almost 60%. This monthly saving could add up to a large amount of money in a very short time.

How does a water softener work?

Why You Need a Water Softener

Water Softener Why do you need a water softener, and how exactly does it work? A water softener is a machine that removes certain minerals, usually magnesium and calcium, from your home’s water supply, and replaces them with sodium. This is important, because the majority of water comes from the ground, which is loaded with minerals that make it hard, with the common culprits being magnesium and calcium. Hard water is impractical for everyday use, because soaps and detergents do not easily dissolve in it. Hard water not only leaves an irritating residue on the skin, but it can also create soap scum in sinks, bathtubs, pipes, and showers. In washing machines hard water leaves a film on clothing, and in the machine. Ultimately, the minerals in hard water can clog pipes, which results in exceedingly high plumbing bills for the average homeowner. A water softener installation from a professional Marietta plumber at Pell Plumbing will eliminate these problems, so you can enjoy your water the way you were meant to.

How does a water softener work? A water softener contains negatively charged resin beads, when positively charged magnesium and calcium ions pass through these beads, they cling to them and are then replaced with sodium ions, creating soft water. As soon as the beads in the device have been saturated with the calcium and magnesium, an internal timer or computer signals to another compartment in the device to inject a large amount of sodium ions, usually derived from common salt, that attach themselves to the magnesium and calcium ions. They are then flushed out of the water softener.

A water softener is an immensely practical device, and over the long run it will save the average homeowner both money and time. A water softener installation from Pell Plumbing is one of the best investments a homeowner can make.
