It’s Daylight Saving Time, when we swap out a day of sunlight in the early morning for an hour more in the evening. It’s also a good time to swap out some bad habits and save some money this spring. Read on for our timely money saving tips:

- Automate your heating and cooling systems
Now is a great time to adjust your thermostat so you are making the best use of the extra heating hour of the sun! And if you have a boiler, let a Len The Plumber expert take a look to make sure it is running efficiently. An efficient boiler system will save you money.
- Get a well water test completed
If you are one of the more than 15 million U.S. households relying on private ground water wells, it’s a good idea to make sure to have those wells tested for things like pH level, iron and mineral content. Len The Plumber can provide you with a water analysis on the spot in your home. Testing your water is a great way to save your health!
- Sump pump testing
Make sure yours will be in working order come those springtime thunderstorms. With already saturated soil, storm water will be finding ways into your home, and having a working sump pump can save you thousands in water damage and restoration.
- Turn down the temperature of your water heater
Lowering your hot water heater temperature to the medium setting can put dollars in your pocket. Hot water heaters can account for up to 25% of your home’s energy bill. Also, if your water heater is older, it could be operating more inefficiently, or has built up sediment. Both can be costly. A water heater can last up to 12 years, but if you feel yours is not operating 100%, consider upgrading. Or, consider tankless water heaters. They can save you hundreds of dollars per year in energy costs.
