Lexie Says: Fix Leaky Faucets

Lexie says fixing leaks can save you money!

Let’s say that you have one leaky faucet that drips once every minute. That faucet drips about 1,440 times a day. That totals about 34 gallons a year. Doesn’t seem like much at first right? Well, that translates into roughly $20 a month. So not only that one faucet annoying, it’s also wasting money!

Now imagine if you had 3 leaky faucets in your home and drips once per minute. That’s 4,320 drops a day which equals 1 liter. And that’s 104 gallons per year!

If a leaky faucet costs you about $20 a month, that’s $240 a year which doesn’t seem like much. But if you have 3 leaky faucets, that’s $720 a year! Remember that’s just a faucet if it was a pipe it would much more, possibly $600 a month! If it’s your water heater’s tank, you would need a new water heater.


If you need a new water heater, Official Heating & Cooling offers quality Bradford White Water Heaters. We provide water heaters that are vented through a conventional metal pipe chimney or a PVC –vented heater that is more energy efficient.
