What plumbing problems do homeowners encounter at this time of year?
The biggest problem this time of year isn’t a heat demand, but plumbing isn’t seasonal, so we’re actually still working on all aspects of plumbing and heating.
What should homeowners do for the upcoming summer season to ensure they don’t run into problems with their plumbing?
Do not open the outside water too early, if you do that before mid-April, you run the risk of freezing.
What is a common misconception about plumbing homeowners?
A common misconception homeowners have about plumbers is that it’s all very easy and we can fix it right away. But plumbing can be technical, and troubleshooting anything that carries or holds water can get complicated. Unlike other professions, it takes five years for a plumber to be fully trained.
Talk about the importance of heating boilers.
It is very important that you have an efficient heating system/boiler at home. An efficient boiler can save you thousands in just one winter. Always call us for advice.
What is the difference between radiant heat and forced air?
Radiant heat is hot water pipes in the floor that cause warm floors. Forced air is heated air from vents.
