ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA., Oct 13, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Californians’ share of home insurance rates has increased, but Rooter Hero Plumbing & Air, a plumbing and HVAC company serving residential and commercial locations in. served California and Arizona, says upgrading plumbing systems and adding water shut-off devices can save homeowners hundreds of their costs.

Rooter Hero offers home improvement tips to California homeowners who want more manageable insurance premiums.

According to ValuePenguin.com, 31 states have exceeded cumulative inflation rates for home insurance over the past five years, and are among the states with the largest increases in rates for 2020 California, Nebraska and Illinois.

However, Rooter Hero co-founder and CEO John Akhoian says homeowners can make some routine improvements that could save them money and increase the return on investment once the home is brought to market.

“Many older homes usually have steel water pipes, which rust and can cause major flooding,” he said. “Some insurance companies won’t even insure your home if you have galvanized steel pipes. Others charge more when you do this.

Akhoian said another money-saving measure would be adding automatic water stop devices to your home’s water supply. These devices monitor the flow of water in the pipes or detect water in areas where it shouldn’t be. If the flow is irregular or moisture is detected, the valve will shut off the water supply to the house to prevent further damage.

“Some insurance companies offer discounts of 3% or more if you own these devices,” he said. “In addition to saving on your home insurance, some California Water circles also offer discounts if you install an automatic water shut-off device in your home. “

Akhoian said homeowners can also install sprinkler systems and smoke alarms in their homes, update their electrical wiring, replace the roof, and add monitored intrusion and fire alarms to save even more money on their home insurance.
