These new trends can add convenience to your life, improve the look of your home, and help to reduce utility costs.

Plumbing Trends to Look for in 2019

 

Alternative Water Heaters

If you haven’t replaced your water heater in a while, you will be pleasantly surprised with all the new options. Many homeowners today are opting for a tankless water heater. Not only do these water heaters provide an endless stream of hot water on-demand, but they also take up less space and use less energy—definitely a win-win.

Another trending alternative to traditional water heaters is solar water heaters. Solar conductors are placed outside the home to collect and convert the sun’s rays into solar energy. This energy is then used to power the water heater to help reduce energy costs.

 

Touch-Free Faucets

Up until now, touch-free faucets were primarily found in offices, restaurants, retail stores, and other types of businesses. Now, homeowners are joining in the fun and adding this convenient feature to the sinks in their home. Touch-free faucets are available in a variety of styles and finishes. This is one trend that is not likely to end any time soon.

 

Replacing Aging Pipes

Aging pipes continue to cause problems, such as lead exposure, low water pressure, and clanking sounds for homeowners of older homes. Rather than wait for issues to occur, homeowners are starting to take proactive measures by having their aging pipes replaced. Newly installed pipes can improve the water pressure in your home and ensure the water is safe for you and your family.

 

Free-Standing Bathtubs

Homeowners across the country are creating a spa-like atmosphere right at home by installing a free-standing tub. Not only are these tubs beautiful but they also offer so many design options. A free-standing bathtub is a perfect addition to any master bathroom.

These emerging plumbing trends are set to change the way people think of plumbing. Learn more about these new trends and how to modernize your home plumbing by contacting Benjamin Franklin Plumbing today.
