Turn Your Home Green this St. Patrick’s Day

In light of Saint Patrick’s Day, let’s bring the festive spirit home by turning your HVAC and plumbing systems green! Here are a few ways to make your home more energy efficient and lower your monthly utility bills.


  1. Invest in a tankless water heater: Unlike a traditional water heater that constantly running, tankless systems heat your water on demand- not to mention you’ll also never run out of hot water, which is a nice benefit too! Though they cost more money to install upfront, tankless water heaters are a simple and easy way to really make a difference in the energy efficiency of your home in the long run.
  2. Fix those leaky faucets: This is an easy one, but often times neglected. Look around your home for leaky faucets, shower heads, and pipes. Even a small leak can add up to significant water waste if left uncorrected.
  3. Upgrade to a smart thermostat: With a smart thermostat, you can make the most of your heating system without wasting money or energy. There are multiple settings that accommodate your lifestyle, making it easier to use less heat and air conditioning. We here at Lenegan Plumbing & Heating LLC offer our customers one of the best remote thermostats on the market: Ecobee claims their thermostats saved owners an average of 23% in heating and cooling costs in 2013.
  4. Install low-flow fixtures: Older models use significantly more water than new, low-flow fixtures. They also add improved comfort.
  5. Schedule a preventative maintenance check: A neglected system slowly loses its ability to keep your home comfortable at the same level of efficiency it once did. Our professionals have an extensive tune-up checklist that will make sure your equipment is running properly. Take a look at our service contract, here.

So by making some greener changes to your home, you won’t need the “luck of the Irish” to save money on your monthly utility bills.
