Some great New Year’s resolution ideas are oriented around your residential plumbing system!
It has been scientifically proven that only around 8% of people achieve their New Year’s resolution goals, and this is why all of us at Beehive Plumbing are encouraging our customers to consider more manageable New Year’s resolutions oriented around their residential plumbing system.
There are many reasons why re-considering your efforts with your home’s plumbing system and trying to go above and beyond your own expectations is worthwhile, particularly because these types of resolutions will ensure the overall longevity of your plumbing appliances while simultaneously saving you a ton on potential plumbing repairs!
Below are a handful of plumbing resolutions that we’ll hope you consider during 2022:
1. Try Being Nicer To Your Garbage Disposal
An easy and effective resolution for 2022 can simply include being more conscious about what food products are going down your garbage disposal. A lot of Northern Utah homeowners believe that their garbage disposals are meant for all sorts of food scraps, but the truth is that you really ought to throw as much food scraps in your trash bin as possible!
Here’s a brief overview of common food products that should never go down your garbage disposal:
- Oils, fats and grease
- Egg shells
- Rice, pasta and potatoes
- Fibrous, stringy foods
- Coffee grounds
- And much more…
2. Your Water Heater May Need Some T.L.C.
Just like your car, your water heater is going to need regular checkups and maintenance reports to ensure that it’s functioning properly. The good news is that Beehive Plumbing just so happens to be one of the top water heater repair teams in the entire region, so our technicians can rather easily ensure that your system is running smoothly.
We’ll be sure to flush out your entire system to eliminate any chances of sediment buildup, and we’ll also run thorough diagnostic tests to provide you with a comprehensive overview of your water heater’s current performance.
3. 2022 Is A Good Year To Commit To Water Conservation
There are so many ways that homeowners can do their part in trying to conserve their overall water usage. This can include taking shorter showers, doing laundry less often, watering your grass less often, and so much more.
One thing that our team specializes in is providing residential properties with low-flush toilets, and this is a really great option if you’re in the market for new toilets. By going this route with your bathroom plumbing, you’ll end up saving a lot of water throughout the course of 2022 AND you’ll save a lot of money in the process!
4. Keeping Your Pipes As Warm As Possible This Winter
We’ve already seen that this winter is going to be frigid throughout Northern Utah, so it’s a good time to consider your home’s pipes if you haven’t already prepared them for cold temperatures.
Keeping your pipes as insulated as possible will go a very long way towards preventing a potential pipe burst, and our plumbing specialists will always ensure that your home is winterized so you can rest easy as big storms roll in!
5. Get Your Residential Plumbing System Inspected
One great benefit of working with Beehive Plumbing is that we’ll provide you with free home inspections when one of our Master Plumbers is at your property, and this is something that we highly recommend for everyone in Northern Utah!
We can’t stress enough how important it is for homeowners to obtain an expert analysis of their entire residential plumbing system, because you’ll never know when you do in fact have a lingering issue that’s going by unseen. Things like hidden leaks can be slowly but surely eroding your system and posing serious threats for later in the year, but our team will be there for you to prevent these types of plumbing emergencies.
6. Fixing Lingering Plumbing Problems Before They Get Out Of Hand
Countless homeowners throughout Northern Utah will let certain plumbing problems linger until they’re much worse, but this type of bad habit is something you should consider kicking in 2022!
By remaining cognizant of drips, leaks, running toilets, noisy water heaters and many other plumbing issues, you can put you and your home in a much better position for optimal functionality this year.
