When Should I Replace My Water Heater?
It is easy to know that you should replace your water heater when it bursts or sustains major damage. However, it is not as easy to determine if replacement is necessary when the issues are minor.
First, you need to consider the age of your water heater and how much electricity it is using. If your water heater is at least 10 years old, it might not be an Energy Star appliance. In most homes, the water heater is the second-largest consumer of energy. You can save money and enjoy the convenience of a new water heater when you invest in a heater with the Energy Star designation.
If your water heater is dripping or has a minor crack or leak, contact James Caccia Plumbing. One of our experienced plumbers will assess the damage and let you know if repairing your water heater is a good investment.
What are Some Typical Signs of Pipe Leaks?
Pipe leaks are one of the most common plumbing problems. Unfortunately, a leaky pipe can cause water damage and a sky high water bill in a short amount of time. Because of this, it is important to be aware of some of the typical signs of pipe leaks, these include:
- Higher-than-usual water bills.
- A slow dripping sound.
- Signs of moisture or warping in the ceiling and/or walls.
- A musty smell.
- The appearance of mold.
If you suspect that you have a leaky pipe, it is important to call a plumber right away. At James Caccia Plumbing, we are committed to timely service, so we will handle your problem as quickly as possible.
What is the Best Way to Prevent Drain Buildup?
Clogged drains are another common plumbing problem, but many homeowners do not think about their drains until they are completely clogged. Many clogs can be prevented by following some simple guidelines.
Remember that whatever you put into your drains eventually has to come out of your pipes. Because of this, it is important to avoid putting grease and other clog-producing materials down your drains. Commercial drain cleaners can be hard on your pipes, but you can decrease the chance of clogs by running hot water down the drain after you clean up your kitchen every night. In the bathroom, check the drains carefully for hair, soap buildup and other items that can clog your pipes.
