Water Heater Repairs / Replacement
Your water heater is one of the most important items in your home. This is because it controls the hot water that pushes through your house. Without it, your water would not get hot and you would be stuck with cold water. Every home is different and everybody’s needs are different. That being said, there are several different types of water heaters that you can choose from. Each one has the sole purpose of bringing you hot water, but each one is also unique to different individual needs as well. Here are a few of the most common types that may work for you.
Conventional Tank Heaters
These water heaters are the ones that are most commonly found in the home. New build homes usually come standard with either a gas or an electric water heater depending if the development is run with gas or just electricity. The reason these are so standard is that they usually fulfill the need for every family. A gas water heater is able to heat water faster than an electric water heater and because of this, it makes it the best choice for families with several people living in the home. A gas water heater is usually more energy efficient as well. Electric water heaters tend to last the longest and also heat water rather quickly. Because of this, it makes it great to have in a home of more than two people. This heater is usually less expensive up front but is a little less energy efficient than a gas water heater. Both tank systems do a great job and will be able to provide a larger family with hot water in their home.
Tankless Water Heaters
These water heaters are great when you want to save money on your energy bill. The reason for this is because it only heats the water when you need it. This is great because if you are not home or if you are not using hot water, it is not heating it. The downside to this heating system is that it does not heat water as fast or as much as the above tank systems because of the smaller size of the tank.
- Gas Water Heater A tankless water heater is energy efficient because it is doesn’t heat up water until you need it.
- Electric Water Heater A gas water heater heats water faster than other conventional water heaters and are energy efficient as well.
- Electric Water Heater Electric water heaters are commonly found in homes and are less expensive upfront than many other systems.
- Water Heater Inspection Having your water heater inspected will ensure that it is always working properly and never suddenly goes out on you.

Drain Cleaning & Clogged Drains
Clogged drains are something every homeowner will probably have to deal with at least once. This is a common problem because, over time, pipes get backed up with food, soap scum, hair, and other chemicals. A clogged drain is usually a quick fix and can even be taken care of without a professional at times.
Chemicals – There are chemicals that you can buy from just about any grocery-type store that will clean your pipes out without any problems if it is small enough. Sometimes this does the job and other times it may not do anything.
Wire Hanger – If you have a wire hanger or any long wire of some kind, you can put it down the drain until you hit the clog. At this point, you can try to puncture through it and pull it up or at least puncture through enough to allow water to flow through it. This may or may not solve the problem but if it continues to be clogged, you will need to call a plumber to have it removed.
