Water Heater Repair
The water heater is one of the most used appliances in our homes. We all use hot water day in and day out from your bathroom sink to your kitchen dishwasher. In order to keep your hot water heater working properly for years, it helps to have professional repairs done when needed. If your water heater stops working you may find yourself without one of our greatest comforts. In order to make sure you have hot water continuously, it helps to be aware of the signs that your hot water heater may need repairs or replacement.
Some common issues related to the Hot Water heater:
Water Heater Replacement Cost
We all want as much comfort as possible. Taking cold showers is not comfortable and washing dishes in cold water is not as effective as washing in hot water. This is why we all need a hot water heater. What is the right hot water heater for your home or business?
The appropriate water heater installation depends on a few factors and can be a quality addition to your home or business. A good water heater offers plenty of hot water without taking up too much space. A good water heater will last for a long time so you don’t have to be concerned about having to replace it again in a few years. We can help you choose an appropriate water heater for your home or business needs.
Most water heater companies consistently try to come up with better and better water heaters that will be as inexpensive as possible and as efficient as possible at the same time. The tankless water heater does offer some advantages over the traditional tank water heater. Traditional water heaters are not very efficient because they lose energy to heat loss. The tank water heater is always working to heat water so that the hot water is on standby for use. You may save money on installation of a traditional water heater but you will make up on that savings with the electric bill.
Tankless water heaters are more expensive up front but they are very efficient because they heat the water on demand. This saves you money in the long run because your electric bill will be lower. Tankless water heaters pay for themselves over time.
If you are replacing your hot water heater with a traditional tank water heater, consider how much hot water your family or business will need. The demand for hot water is a big factor when choosing the size of the tank for a new hot water heater. Large demand equals large tank and large space to fit the tank. Whereas the tankless water heater doesn’t use a tank so you don’t need a large space for it in your home or business. People often store tankless water heaters out of site.
The plumbing team at Steve’s Home Improvement can help you choose the best hot water heater for your budget and hot water demands. Keep in mind that the more efficient a water heater is, the longer it will last.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump Pump Repair & Replacement Services
A sump pump is a pump installed in a pit. The pit is called a sump. The pit collects rain water or flood waters and when the water level within the sump pit reaches a specific level, the sump pump will be activated. The sump pump works to move the water out of the pit and away from your home or business. A sump pump can save your home from damage and issues related to excessive moisture, like mold. A sump pump is considered a good investment and should be installed and/or repaired by a professional plumber.
Steve’s Home Improvement Plumbing team provides installation and repair services for both pedestal and submersible sump pumps. The average life of a sump pump is 12 years or less. If you are experiencing problems with either the motor or impeller, it may be time to replace your current pump with an energy efficient pump. Common issues with sump pumps include rust, continuous cycles, motor vibration, and banging noises.
Types of Sump Pump Noises & What They Mean
A broken or contaminated impeller may cause a humming sound in a sump pump. This typically happens because there has been damage to the blades. A humming sound may also be caused by a blockage in the ventilation drain that is attached to your sump pump. If the humming sound doesn’t stop, you may need to have us inspect the check valve to see if it is damaged. Although not common in South Florida, the source of the noise may also be a frozen drainage pipe that is connected to your sump pump. If you are having difficulties figuring out why you keep hearing humming noises, give us a call. We offer emergency sump pump and pluming repairs.
Crumbling sounds could mean your sump pump is on its way to being inoperable. If you hear crumbling sounds, call us ASAP to prevent permanent damage to the impeller in your sump pump. Once the impeller gets stuck, it will not operate correctly.
Loose discharge pipes are what usually cause banging noises. There are a couple of ways to take care of this issue. Our plumbing team can secure these pipes by integrating 12-gauge wires or we can install pipe brackets to stop the pipes from moving. A licensed plumber should do this type of work. Steve’s Home Improvement provides affordable and dependable sump pump and plumbing repair services in Palm Beach and Martin Counties.
Water Leak Repair
One sure way to tell if you have a water leak is if you have a significant change in the water meter status. One thing you can do to check it yourself is to note what your water meter says first, then turn the water off and after about an hour, check your water meter again. If you see no difference, you most likely do not have a water leak.
Water leaks can happen especially if the water supply lines are getting old. Most people don’t know they have a water leak until they experience higher than normal water bills, damaged drywall, cracked walls, wet floors, strange smells or strange noises. Water leaks require a professional plumber and quickly.
