3 Ways to Reinvest Your Tax Return (So it Keeps Paying You)

3 Ways to Reinvest Your Tax Return in Your Home

This year, make sure your tax return pays off long after April 15th has come and gone. Homeowners have a variety of ways they can reinvest their refund as plumbing improvements that will save money every month, and provide additional comfort and peace of mind.

From water heaters to leak detection, read on to see how you can put your tax return to work for you!

1. Upgrade to a Tankless Water Heater

If you have an older water heater, it's likely time for an upgrade. Newer tankless models can supply your entire home with endless hot water on demand, and they're much more energy-efficient than tank models.

That means lower utility bills month after month and more money in your pocket over the long run.

Not sure if your water heater needs to be replaced? Check for these telltale signs:

  • Your tank water heater is more than 15 years old (you should really keep an eye on it even after 8 years)
  • You have to wait too long for hot water when you turn on the tap
  • Water smells foul or has a rusty color
  • Your utility bills have been creeping up over the past few months

2. Install a Whole Home Water Treatment System

Did you know that your plumbing is susceptible to corrosion and buildup? Over time, the buildup of minerals in your water can cause problems with your plumbing system. Much like your arteries!

A whole-home water filter will remove these minerals from your water before they have a chance to do any damage. Expensive appliances will last longer, and you won’t get that ugly hard water build-up/stains on your fixtures (faucets, toilets, glass shower doors, etc.) Not only will this protect your plumbing, but it will also improve the quality of your water overall.

You and your family will notice the difference when you start using filtered/treated water for cooking, drinking, and bathing.

Installing a whole home water filter or treatment system is a relatively simple process with the help of the Plumbing & A/C Medic team, and it's a great way to safeguard your plumbing system. Contact us to learn about various options and which is best for your home and lifestyle.

3. Find and Fix Leaks

One of the most common ways homeowners waste water (and money) is by ignoring leaks or simply being unaware they exist. A leaky faucet or running toilet can waste hundreds of gallons of water each month, and that wasted water quickly adds up on your utility bills.

Check out our guide on leak detection and how you can be proactive in saving money and saving water by fixing leaks.
