Has it come time to replace the toilets in your home? Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, and Electric are often called to homes to help install new toilets. A lot of new toilets that we install are actually comfort height toilets.
Not only are comfort height toilets two to four inches taller from floor to seat than a standard toilet, but they are also ADA approved. Typically, standard height toilets are 15 inches, and comfort height toilets range from 17-19 inches tall. These toilets are great for those who struggle getting on and off the toilet. They are also a really good option for our wonderful elderly family members and those who are disabled. If you are having to routinely help someone you love to the restroom, comfort height toilets will also help relieve the distance you are having to bend as well.
Comfort height toilets can add some additional stress to young children who may not be tall enough to get on the higher toilets.These taller toilets may also pose as an additional stress to those that are shorter. It’s also not recommended for those who are routinely constipated, as our bowels rely on our hips being tilted below the height of your knees.
If you are worried about the installation process, calling our professional technicians at Affordable Service to help with the install of your new toilet is something we are good at! Not only can we quickly and efficiently install it, we will make sure that it is up to code! Comfort height toilets cost more than half of what a standard height toilet costs, but depending on your toilet needs, comfort height may be the way to go!
