When Shopping For New Bathroom Fixtures Find Out What Is Best For You

If you are thinking about remodeling your bathroom, but don't have a lot of money to spend, think about the improvements that make an impact on a budget. New fixtures can improve the aesthetics of the bathroom as well as the functionality. The amount of wear and tear put on fixtures is pretty high. Think about it. Every time someone goes in the restroom you can expect a minimum of one fixture to be used, if not all. So, over the years the pressure and leverage applied to the fixtures eventually weaken their integrity. This is not only aesthetically disparaging, but it can cause plumbing difficulties as well.

When shopping for new fixtures, do a bit of research and find out what is best for you. Consider the size and shape of your sink and bathtub. Do you prefer a knob or a lever?

When you do decide on fixtures, give us a call. We will install them with excellence and care. Our professional plumbers will maximize the life of your new fixtures, improving your home's aesthetic and functional quality. Contact Los Angeles area JO-MI Plumbing today at 310-473-8111 for more information on replacing your home’s currant fixtures with modern and efficient ones.

The Most Important Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Solar Water Heating Systems

Solar water heating systems are becoming an increasingly popular clean energy option all across the globe. Let's talk about the most important advantages and disadvantages of using solar water heating systems:

By using sunshine to heat your water, you can cut your water heating bill in half. This means you can save $140 annually or $2,900 over the lifetime of the water heater. Certified solar water heaters can cut your carbon dioxide emissions in half, the equivalent of not driving your car for four months out of the year.

The average life expectancy of certified solar water heating systems is 20 years, much longer than standard gas or electric storage water heaters.

As the use of renewable energy continues to grow, the value of your home may increase as well, as more buyers seek out energy-efficient houses. A higher perceived value translates to a higher asking price when you are ready to sell your home.

Give us a call today for a thorough consultation. Once installation has happened, you will see an immediate difference in efficiency and money saved. Contact Los Angeles area JO-MI Plumbing today at 310-473-8111 for more information on installing a solar water heating system in your home.
