Do-It-Yourself Furnace Maintenance

Your furnace needs the proper maintenance to keep it running efficiently and to help ensure it lasts as long as it is designed to. However, hiring a professional to clean, oil and maintain this appliance can get costly. My name is Jeff and like many of you, I live on a very tight budget. I spent a lot of time researching various type of maintenance that I could do on my furnace myself to get it the maintenance it needed at a price that I could live with. I created this website to share my knowledge and experiences with others who wish to save some money on their furnace maintenance needs. I hope this proves helpful to you.

Advantages Of Switching To Touchless Commercial Bathroom Faucets

When your customers need to turn a knob to activate a faucet, they might end up spreading germs everywhere. Many commercial restrooms have solved this problem by replacing traditional faucets with touchless faucets. There are several reasons why you should consider having a commercial plumber install these faucet types.

Better Customer Service

Customers appreciate touchless faucets. They don't know what else touched the faucets when they placed their hands on them. While customers wash their hands to remove germs, they might be defeating the purpose if the germs of other customers are on the faucet knobs. 

Less Cleaning

When customers have to touch the knobs, your employees will have to waste time cleaning the faucet handles. Also, customers are more likely to dirty up the rest of the faucet when they're not using a touchless faucet. 

Better Water Conservation

Hands-free faucets turn off automatically. This makes them much more effective at conserving water because you don't have to worry about customers forgetting to turn the faucets off. When faucets are left on, there's a risk that this might create a mess if the sink overfills. However, with a hands-free faucet, you'll not only lower water cost, but will also reduce your business's impact on the environment. 

Easier to Use

Hands-free faucets are much easier to operate. Customers who have disabilities may struggle to turn the knobs. However, with a hands-free faucet, placing the hands near the sensor will automatically activate the faucet. Old-fashioned faucets allow customers to choose hot or cold water, but if they turn the hot knob all the way, they are more likely to scald themselves. With an automatic faucet, this is less likely because the water temperature is pre-determined. 

Modernize Your Faucets

If your existing faucets are showing signs of damage, wear and tear, you'll want to have them replaced with new faucets. These will look much better to your customers and will give your bathroom a more modern feel. 

Go Touchless Throughout Your Entire Bathroom

When you have decided to install a touchless faucet, you might decide to go further by installing touchless soap dispensers, touchless paper towel dispensers and touchless toilets and urinals. Touchless toilets and urinals are especially useful because you can eliminate the risk of customers forgetting to flush, which can be unpleasant for other customers. Contact a commercial plumbing contractor and ask about which touchless fixtures he or she can install in your commercial bathroom.
