How A Smart Meter Can Help You Reduce Utility Costs In Your Home
Persistent droughts in many states in the US are driving up bills while cutting into water supplies. This makes water consumption very crucial today. To reduce your consumption as well as minimize plumbing costs overall, you need to know how and when you’re using the most amount of water. This is why we at A Clear Choice Plumbing & Heating recommend that clients get smart water meters installed on their properties.
Smart Technology Foe Plumbing Installations
The garden-variety water meters have a standard function. They only continue to tick with every unit if water directed into your home. It means they only keep a record of the amount of water used and nothing more. They do not have the functionality to record at which times of the day your household uses more water.
The regular water meter reading can give you a heads-up in case there is an increase in water consumption every month. However, you don’t have any way to know how or why that happens. This is where smart meters come in. These devices are well-smart! Getting one installed is the best way to reduce the utility costs in your home. Let’s take a look at how:
These meters track all your water usage accurately
You can access this information via your mobile device
The smart water meter provides a warning in case there is a change in patterns.
This warning is a good way to know when there is some problem in your plumbing system like a leak.
The app gives you access to information about how much water your family is using.
You also get information regarding the times at which the water is being used.
This data gives you a better idea of how much you are spending on your water needs and exactly how.
Modern smart water meters give a far more accurate reading compared to conventional water meters.
This incentivizes homeowners even further to curb water usage in case there is a shortage, or they are using too much water.
Smart Water Meter Installation
Smart water meters are still not as widely used as smart electric meters. The latter are prevalent throughout the country. But we do have a lot of inquiries about smart water meters and our team is here to provide you with all the information you need about these systems, their benefits and more.
Once you have made your decision, we will also handle the actual installation for you.

When you opt for a device from a good brand, you can be sure that it will last for between 15-20 years. This also means the slightly higher initial costs are well worth it.
