Saving up for a vacation is exciting, and eventually booking the vacation is extremely satisfying. However, the best part is actually going on the vacation. As a homeowner, you want to make it a top priority to get your home into a position to minimize water and energy consumption while you are gone. Here are a few plumbing tips on what to do in your home before leaving will help you accomplish this goal.
Turn Down the Water Heater
It makes sense to have your water heater at a certain temperature when you are at home, but you do not benefit keeping it at this temperature when you are not there to use the hot water. It is ideal to reduce the temperature on your water heater before leaving, which will save you some decent money.
Increase Fridge Temperature
When going on vacation, you normally want to plan out your groceries to avoid having an excess of perishables in your refrigerator by the time you need to leave. A money-saving solution is to make sure all perishables are consumed, thrown away, or put into the freezer, and then increase the temperature.
