My water expansion tank above my hot water heater sprung a leak and it was 6pm on a week day. I called Ace and they gave me a quote over the phone that was better than the other places I called. The repair guy the sent out (JAMES) not only did a great job but also did it SUPER fast which is awesome since they charge for every 15 mins or...
"I have never been disappointed. I have kept ACE'S magnet "just in case" thru at least 3 moves. I have a warranty on my house but they sent me 3 separate contractors who couldn't/ wouldn't do the job. The last one that was sent to me actually was at my house for less than 5 minutes and determined that I needed a special clean...
After the county came out to check my lines at 8pm, it was determined the problem was in my house sewer line. I randomly picked Ace Plumbing from the yellow pages. So glad I did! At first they said it would be between 5-7Am before they could get to me as they were swamped due to the storm. But when he heard I could not turn water on or flush...
Slab leaks, as the name suggests, are leaks that occur under your foundation. Sewer leaks and leaks in the water lines are the two most common kinds of slab leaks. Damp areas on your floor, an increase in your water bill, and swelling soil are all signs of a slab leak. The sooner you hire a plumber to identify and repair leaks under the slab, the less likely you will be to need foundation repairs on your home.
Ace Plumbing of Sacramento can identify and find leaks under your home’s foundation. If you suspect water is leaking beneath your home, contact Ace Plumbing today. We can also provide you with annual plumbing checkups to help prevent leaks and repair them as they are discovered. To request an estimate, call Ace Plumbing today at (916) 455-4548.
Shopping for a new air conditioner can be daunting, especially if it’s been more than 15 or 20 years since you last purchased an AC unit. Over that time, air conditioner technology has changed immensely, and the AC systems of today are smaller, quieter, faster, and more energy-efficient than ever before. BTUs and EERs are common measurements used today to define how energy-efficient an air conditioner is. To help you select the right unit for your home, here is a closer look at what these two important acronyms mean and how they will affect your energy bill.
A British thermal unit (BTU) is a precise measurement of the amount of heat necessary to raise the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. All air conditioners have a tested BTU rating. The higher the BTU rating, the more effectively the air conditioning unit will cool a large area of your home. Window air conditioners might be rated at 10,000 BTUs, while a typical 2,000-square-foot home might have a 60,000 BTU central air conditioning system. To accurately size an air conditioner for your home or apartment, contact your heating and air conditioning specialist.
The energy efficiency rating (EER) of a new air conditioner is a measurement of how efficiently it will cool down a room in relation to the amount of power it will consume. To determine a unit’s EER, its BTU rating is divided by the wattage the unit uses while operating. For example, if a 10,000-BTU air conditioner consumes 1,200 watts of electricity, it has an EER of 8.3. Higher EER numbers mean better energy efficiency and lower cooling costs.
