New Year, New You, New Home

Chances are you’re making at least one New Year’s resolution this year, and you’re not alone. In fact, some experts estimate that almost half of Americans make one.[1] However, recent research from the University of Scranton suggests that just eight percent of people actually accomplish their New Year’s goals.[2]

Whether you’re striving to live healthier, go green or save money in the new year, there are ways your home systems can play a role in achieving your goals.

Follow these tips from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® to make simple home improvements that keep you in that elite percent of the resolution-making population who lives up to their New Year’s resolutions.

  • Looking to save money?  A new showerhead can shower you with savings. Save money and help cut your bills by replacing an existing showerhead with a powerful high-efficiency model. You can enjoy the same water pressure and long showers while saving water and money.[3]
  • Want to help save the planet? A new water heater can help.  Water heating alone can account for 14 – 25 percent of the energy consumption in a home.[4] Be sure to check your boiler regularly to make sure it’s clean and running efficiently, or consider investing in an energy-efficient appliance.
  • Hoping to spend more time with friends and family? Make your living space more inviting. If you don’t have enough bathroom space to comfortable host visitors, consider adding a bathroom.  Even a simple 5 x 9 foot bathroom could yield a return on investment of 61 percent.[5]
