While tankless water heaters are not for everyone, they’re a convenient and cost-effective option for many. These modern units cost more to install, but they save money over time in reduced energy usage. Tankless models also last almost twice as long as tank units. Another advantage of these smart water heaters is that they deliver hot water right when it’s needed. The main drawback of these units is that they can be “output challenged.” So, if you need to run the washing machine and shower at the same time, then a traditional tank unit may be the better option.
To answer that question, ask yourself: Is your home more than 50 years old? Does it still have its old galvanized steel piping in place? Do you have decreased water pressure or corrosion due to limescale? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may need repiping services.
Water bills higher than usual despite no change in use, discolored or wet areas on the floor or walls, or cracks in the foundation of your home are common signs of a water leak. Check your water meter’s leak indicator – if the dial is moving then chances are you have a leak that should be addressed ASAP. Locate your home’s main water shut off valve and turn it to the off position. Then, call a licensed plumber (hint: like Plumbing Nerds!) that specializes in accurate water leak detection and repair.
You need to call a professional plumber when you have one or more drains that are slow to empty, hear gurgling noises when water goes down the drain, or smell bad odors coming from the drain. Attempting to DIY a drain stoppage can make matters worse. Save yourself the trouble and call Plumbing Nerds for a lasting solution.
