Water Heater Replacement & Repairs.

 

Now, let’s ‘talk’ water heaters. A Hot Time in the Old House Tonight. Or Anytime at All.We’re talking about a nice hot shower or bath, of course.Come to think of it, it’s our job – and privilege – to make sure you have all the hot water you need…morning, noon, and night.

For starters, we recommend an annual water heater performance and safety inspection. Over time, any water heater will gradually lose efficiency; however, with regular maintenance, we can help your system last longer while minimizing or perhaps even eliminating potential repairs. If you have a gas water heater, annual maintenance is doubly important so we can routinely be on the lookout for a possible gas or carbon monoxide leak.

For your added peace of mind, 1st Class Plumbing provides ongoing maintenance and high quality repairs for most makes and models of residential water heaters. So if it’s been a year or longer since it’s been professionally inspected or currently is not performing up to par, contact us now for prompt and professional service.

Equally important, we can explain the ramifications of the energy-saving regulations that took effect in April, 2015. Under the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA), gas and electric water heaters with less than 55 gallons in storage capacity are now 2” wider and 2” taller than previous models.Why is that important? Because if you live in a condo, and your 50 gallon unit just fits the available space, a replacement 50 gallon system won’t…at least not without some creative thinking and perhaps a little home remodeling.

If you’re considering buying a replacement water heater with more than 50 gallons of storage capacity, you’re in for even bigger changes. In this size category, gas and electric water heaters, as you once knew them, no longer exist. They’ve been replaced by gas condensing water heaters and electric hybrid heat pump models. With the latter, you can cut your home energy expenses by up to $300 and more per year,or maybe it’s time to do away with the tank altogether and switch to a tankless water heater.

Contact us as your Plano plumbers today to schedule the service you need, or to request a free in-home quote on a new or replacement system. At that time, we’ll explain your options and take all the time you need to answer your question. That’s the way we do things here at 1st Class Plumbing.

Drain Cleaning 

 

There Isn’t a Home Drain Line We Can’t Repair or Replace.

 

If you’re experiencing a water leak problem, first things first: shut off the flow of water either at the source or by turning your home’s main water valve to the “off” position. At least then you can calm down a little, survey the damage, and prevent any additional damage as your Plano plumbers.

Still, if you can’t stop the flow of water, here are a few suggestions: Get one or more buckets to catch as much of the running water as you can. Dry the pipe, then seal it off with electrical tape. Contact a neighbor for immediate assistance.And then call us to request emergency service!
That’s right, 1st Class Plumbing provides 24/7 emergency service for all those sewer and drain problems that just can’t wait. In the process, we do our very best not just to solve the problem, but to prevent damage to your home and property.

We are experienced in repairing and replacing all indoor drain drain pipes and garbage disposals. We take great care to help clean up whatever mess might be waiting for us, protect the work area during the repair process, and thoroughly clean up after ourselves.

Are you needing a Sewer Repair? All sorts of things can account for a cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged underground sewer line, including shifting soil, pipe corrosion, Tree and shrub roots that have cracked and infiltrates the pipes. That also includes faulty installation, poor quality materials, poor workmanship, and so on.

What’s a plumber to do? Well, when a sewer can’t be cleaned, then it’s time to step into our repair or replacement mode.
