Flush Your Water Heater this Fall

Monday, September 25th, 2017

water-heater-flushingWater heaters are a staple of most modern homes: providing heated water safely and effectively as easily as turning on a tap. They’re located in quiet corners of the house, such as the basement where no one visits especially often, and they usually do their jobs silently and without fuss.

But there’s a downside to such quiet service. When problems arise, they rarely attract notice and can spread until they are extensive indeed. In more than a few cases, what could be a simple repair job becomes an unplanned replacement: driving up the costs and adding time as well as expense to the operation.

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

water-heater-maintenanceWater heaters are one of the unsung heroes of our households: quietly and reliably providing hot water for cooking, cleaning and bathing. But because they’re so reliable – as well as being tucked away in seldom-used parts of the house like the basement – it can often be hard to notice the signs of trouble. That, more than any other factor, contributes to high repair bills: the homeowner’s unawareness of the issue until it’s too late.

Monday, April 10th, 2017

Water heaters are an essential part of modern life, providing clean hot water for cooking and cleaning at very little cost. They do their jobs quietly for the most part, and stay out of the way in spots like the basement or garage where you don’t have to think about them very often.

Monday, August 15th, 2016

The trouble with water heaters is that they do their jobs quietly and in out-of-the way parts of your Frisco, TX house.

How to Maintain Your Water Heater

Monday, July 4th, 2016

Water heaters aren’t usually a problem in your household, at least most of the time. When trouble arises, however, it’s often severe — requiring an emergency plumbing call at the minimum and sometimes replacement of your entire system to boot. Most of the time, such problems are cause — or at least exacerbated — by neglect. Water heaters sit in the basement or garage of your Sherman, TX home, out of sight and out of mind most of the time.
