If you own or lease your commercial building, utility bills are a concern when it comes to your budget.
Luckily, you can control some of your expense through efficiency upgrades to your plumbing.
Reduce Your Water Usage
It’s surprisingly easy to reduce your commercial water usage with some very simple tactics.
One is to install pressure gauges. They allow you to monitor water flow and make changes to what you’re doing, if needed, plus you’ll know how much water you’re using and where.
Another energy-saving option is installing dual-flush valves on toilets, which enable a half flush for liquid and a full flush for solids.
This one simple step can save thousands of gallons of water each year, and the fix is quite easy for your Forrest Anderson Commercial Services team to complete.
Regulate Your Hot Water Heater
Every commercial establishment needs hot water, but do you know how much it’s costing you to heat that water in your boiler?
The thermostat turns the heater off when the water reaches a certain temperature and then pops it back on when the water gets too cold. But every time that happens, it wears out the boiler and is inefficient, not too mention expensive.
A regulator automatically adjusts the temperature of the circulating water. And that results in a 10–20% reduction in heating fuel usage. That amount can be significant when averaged out in dollars for the year.
Conduct a Full Inspection
Whether you’re a new tenant / owner or you’ve been in the building for years, it’s always a good idea to make a review of your plumbing system. With a thorough inspection, your commercial plumber can be on the lookout for leaky faucets or running toilets.
These are inexpensive upgrades that you might not have even considered because you didn’t notice there was a problem.
We will find the issues, though.
If you’re considering buying or leasing a new commercial building, contact your Forrest Anderson Commercial Services team to discuss your options for increasing efficiency and reducing overall cost.

It’s never too soon or too early to save money.
