During any recession or economic downturn money is always going to be at the forefront of your mind. You have to shop differently, holidays become a thing of the past and even the smallest expense can be enough to ruin the household or business budget for the month. During a recession both people and businesses simply have to tighten the purse strings and make their money work harder and stretch further than it ever has before.
So when people notice that they have a water leak they instantly go into budget mode and think “Nope that’ll have to wait until I can afford to have it sorted”. That approach is understandable and even practical to a certain extent but it’s the wrong approach.
Hiring leak detection specialists like the team at ADI Leak Detection does cost money – that’s just a fact of life. It’s a highly specialized service that we offer and we’ve invested massively in a wide range of extremely high-tech leak detection equipment and the training to go with it. That being said we do our very best to keep our prices as competitive as possible because we know the economy simply isn’t in a very healthy state and that doesn’t look set to change anytime soon.
The reality is though that if you ignore a gas leak in your home or business in order to save money right now it’s going to cost you money down the road. You’re not actually saving yourself money by fixing the central heating leak right now because when the leak gets worse (and it will) then you’re going to wind up forking out thousands to repair the damage itself and the same amount again to replace any household items or furniture that got damaged as a result.
Put simply not fixing a leak you’re aware of right now is false economy of the highest order.
