3 Reasons To Consider Upgrading to Dimmer Switches

3 Reasons To Consider Upgrading to Dimmer Switches

1. Lower Energy Use

Conventional light switches offer two energy levels: 0% or 100%. With a dimmer switch you may find that using only 10% of a bulb's light output is perfect for lighting a particular location. This can add up to significant savings over time.

2. Increased Lightbulb Lifespan

By reducing the amount of electricity sent to light bulbs you will lower the heat and intensity from the bulb, extending its lifespan.

3. Ambience

Perhaps the most popular reason people choose to install dimmer switches is the control they provide over the quality of lighting in the home. Reducing the light intensity can create the perfect mood for any space.

For all your home electrical upgrade needs, call Ostrom Plumbing & Electrical.

Preventing Water Leaks Around The Home

Preventing Water Leaks Around The Home

A water leak in the home can be more than a minor inconvenience, it can end up costing thousands of dollars in damage. While a simple leaking faucet can add up to hundred of gallons of wasted water over the course of a year, there are other water leaks that can cost you more.

1. Washing Machine Hoses

One of the most costly water leaks is a leaking washing machine hose. If the washing machine is on an upper floor the damage to your house and property can be extensive. To prevent leaks, regularly check that the hose connections are tight. If the washing machine hoses are over 5 years old, or show signs of cracking or buckling, they should be replaced. Consider installing braided stainless steel hoses, which are designed to withstand greater pressure than rubber hoses.

2. Leaking Toilets

Leaking toilets are often the most overlooked leaks in the home because they are the least likely to be noticed. To test for leaks add a few drops of food coloring to a gallon of water and pour it into the toilet tank. Without flushing the toilet if the coloring appears in the bowl there is a leak.

3. Water Heater Leaks

Water heaters that are beyond their life expectancy (typically 8-10 years) are especially susceptible to water leaks. Rust and corrosion inside the tank will eventually cause water to start leaking. To keep your water heater working reliably and reduce the likelihood of corrosion, flush sediment from the hot water tank annually.
