Our first featured coupon that will take us to the end of 2022 is $50 off a boiler cleaning and inspection. Boilers should be inspected annually. The reason being is that inspection can check for any potential problems, keep it running and working smoothly, and even help your equipment last longer. Going into the cold season especially is not the most convenient time to experience a breakdown or failure of your boiler. The service can also help with energy savings. In addition to checking the boiler itself, our service technicians check the piping and venting.

Boiler Tips for Homeowners:

  1. Check the boiler pressure to make sure it’s within an acceptable range
  2. Keep the area around your boiler cleared and clean
  3. Check that the thermostat is working properly and heat is working accordingly

Our next featured coupon is 10% off labor when you purchase a new water heater. This coupon will be available until the end of 2022. How old is your water heater? Find out by looking for the manufacturer’s sticker on your water heater. 

The lifespan of a water heater can span between 8 and 12 years. This estimation varies based on water quality, placement, maintenance, and the quality of installation. If your water heater is nearing its estimated lifespan, you’ll want to keep an eye out for these potential issues. It may not be much longer before you need to replace it. 

Potential Water Heater Issues:

  • Leaks around the base of the water heater
  • Issues with hot and cold water
  • A rise in costly bills could be due to a malfunctioning unit

While the purchase of a new water heater might be intimidating, consider the opportunity to purchase a more efficient model. With the advancement of technology, equipment has become more efficient which saves you money in the long run as well as helps keep energy usage down.

Not sure if your water heater is ready for replacement? We recommend having it inspected. Yearly maintenance is suggested for water heaters. The inspection can find any possible malfunctions to repair or find that smaller parts of the water heater should be replaced first before replacing the whole unit. These frequent checks will help the system stay tuned up, work well, and last longer. 

When it is time for a replacement, whether you’re ready for a more efficient system or need to replace the system because of a breakdown, there are lots of options available to you including tank water heaters and tankless water heaters. If you were satisfied with your water heater, take a picture of the label on it. This will tell you the specs that you’ll want to look for in a new heater. If you weren’t happy with your water heater, this sticker information can be a starting point of what you don’t want in your next water heater.

With our 10% off labor coupon, you’ll save money on the installation, but additionally, you’ll have access to our assistance, knowledge, and help with choosing a new and more efficient water heater that works for your home and plumbing needs. With over two decades in the business, we are ready and looking forward to serving you and setting you up with a new water heater and additional plumbing services as needed!
