The Value of Upgrading Your Inefficient Water Heater

In the heat of the Sacramento summer, you may not be too concerned about the efficiency and performance of your water heater. If your water heater is underperforming, however, there is no better time than now to replace it with a new, more energy-efficient model. If you are concerned that replacing your water heater now will present you with a cost you cannot justify, then read on to find out how hiring a plumber to upgrade your water heater will save you money in the long run. 

Replacement Reality

An inefficient water heater will have to be replaced at some point. You can delay acceptance of this fact until your garage is home to a rusty tank that can hardly deliver lukewarm water to your shower, dishwasher, and laundry machine. Alternatively, you can accept this reality and start saving money on your water bills now; enjoying the comforts and conveniences afforded you by your energy-efficient water heater in the meantime. Your upgrade may even qualify you for a tax rebate.

Short-Run vs. Long-Run Costs

The initial cost of upgrading your water heater will put a dent in this month’s budget. Before long, however, you will start to realize how much money you will save in the long run with a professionally installed water heater with the capacity to heat water far more efficiently than the tank it is replacing.

Environmental Benefits, Comfort, and Convenience

Whereas a conventional water heater uses energy to keep a certain volume of water hot and ready for use upon request, a tankless heater works in an on-demand fashion. When you turn a hot water tap or activate your dishwasher, fresh water will pass through a heated coil and go straight to the faucet or appliance to which it has been directed. This manner of heating water conserves both water and energy.

Replace your water heater now, and by the time winter arrives you will already view your decision as having been financially sound. Choose a tankless heater, and you will also be thankful for the timeliness with which hot water starts flowing through your showerhead. If you would like to speak with an experienced plumbing professional in the Sacramento area about your water heater upgrade options, call Ace Plumbing at (916) 455-4548!

Slow Drains? It's No Problem When Ace Plumbing is on the Job!

Are you sick and tired of wading in water that contains a mixture of soapy suds and the dirt you’ve just washed off your body after just a few minutes in the shower? Does your kitchen sink drain so slowly that you sometimes have to wait a moment to turn the faucet on while hand washing dishes to keep water from overflowing? If you have a slow drain in your Sacramento-area home, it may be worth your while to have a professional plumber from Ace Plumbing to take care of it rather than trying to unclog it yourself.

The Problem with Doing it Yourself

Using store-bought or homemade cleaners is not necessarily bad for your drains, but most natural and synthetic drain cleaners provide only a temporary solution to the sluggish draining of a sink or shower. If the source of your clogged drain is hidden deep down in one of your home’s pipes, the cause of the drain may become more severe as time passes.

Clogged Drain

Professional Drain Clearing

When you commission a professional from Ace Plumbing to take care of your slow drains for you, you can rest assured that the source of slow drainage will be detected and taken care of. From grease and food in kitchen plumbing to hair and soap in your shower drain, the source of a clogged drain will be identified and the appropriate treatment carried out.

Hydro-Jetting

If a drain in your home has been clearing at a snail’s pace for months, it is possible that the cause is a blockage in your pipe system. For such blockages, the solution may lie in the most advanced and effective pipe cleaning techniques. Hydro-jetting is a highly effective plumbing process in which high-pressure water is blasted through a specially designed hose. Just about any clog that your pipe system may be subjected to can be solved with this plumbing procedure.
