Plumbing decisions for you and your family

Decisions…we make them every second of every day. Sometimes the decisions we make aren’t life changing, however, some decisions we make can improve our lives, save us money, help the environment, or keep us safe. When it comes to plumbing, Greenwell can educate you on some of the choices you have to make, guiding you to the right decision for your family.

Everyone with a home needs a water heater to, well, heat up water. We want warm water for a shower or bath, to use your dishwasher or to wash your clothes. There are different types of water heaters, however, so choose the one that works for you. The standard cylinder water heater is filled with water and has a heating mechanism at the bottom. They can be electric or gas and they come in different sizes, so if you have a growing family, you may consider a higher capacity water heater. You can also choose a Tankless water heater. It is energy efficient, supplies hot water on demand, is environmentally friendly, reduces your utility bill and will last twice as long as a standard water heater. As always, check out the pros and cons of any water heater you choose.

There are plenty of beautiful older homes in the Southern Indiana and Louisville area. While these offer plenty of charm, they also usually come with some outdated plumbing as well. Age and poor maintenance can result in a dripping faucet. Did you know a faucet that drips 3 times per minute can waste more than 12 gallons of water per month, or 160 gallons a year? Don’t let something as manageable as a leaking faucet send your water bill skyrocketing. We offer a wide variety of high-quality sink fixtures. Check to see if you need an upgrade or repair.

Choices can sometimes be a daunting proposition, but with the goals you have in mind, and a clear vision as to what will work best for your family, the first step is already taken. A little guidance from experts in the field can help you make the right decision. And when deciding on a plumbing company, we hope you choose Greenwell Plumbing
