Best 3 Ways to Save Money on Utility Bills

Those utility bills pile up. I was at my wits end with all the different costs. “There must be a way to decrease my costs,” I said out loud to an empty room. But how? I began doing research on ways I could save money on my utility bills. That’s when I called plumbing and heating companies near me. Here are 3 ways they saved me money.

1. They started by fixing my leaking pipes. The showerhead and the faucet in the bathroom downstairs have leaked forever. But the leak is so slow that I didn’t think anything of it. That’s when they told me that by fixing some of those small leaks, they could save me 10% on my water bill each month. Then they told me that 1 in 10 homes has leaks that waste up to 90 gallons per day. That floored me. I mean, 90 gallons per day is a lot. No wonder my water bills were out of control.

2. Next my local HVAC company talked about insulation in my house. Apparently, the energy efficiency of my house can drop by 30% if my house is not properly insulated. I don’t know much about houses, but I do know that a drop in energy efficiency means I spend more money. But the HVAC company told me insulation was a pretty easy fix and even passed on the names of some home construction people that could help.

3. Finally, the plumbing companies and heating companies near me said that regular maintenance on furnaces can save as mush as $30 per month. And that information is from the U.S. Department of Energy so I know it’s not just some sales gimmick. But $30 per month is money to pay for pizza and breadsticks instead of cooking. And to me, that’s a huge deal.

Now that I have called plumbing and heating companies near me, I have reduced my water and heating bills considerably. Those professionals were so helpful. The best part is, I don’t have to worry about pipe leaks spinning out of control to flood my basement or my heat going out in the middle of winter. I know everything is up to date and running at peak efficiency. I’m going to use those companies again and make sure everything stays up to date. Now you know the secret of how I save money on my utility bills.
