There’s something special about the New Year. The last weeks of December are often sort of quiet and lazy. We get to enjoy our new gifts and sit at home with family. But, with January comes a new energy. Canadians everywhere are looking forward to a fresh start and achieving their goals. Many of you may be planning on trying to live more sustainably, to lower your impact on the environment, or to save money. The experts at Plumbing Paramedics can help!
Hot Water Tank Inspection.
If you’re like many Calgarians, your hot water tank is probably on the old side. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s important to be careful with these tanks. They hold a lot of water and a lot of pressure, so when things go wrong with a hot water tank, they go very, very wrong. By having your tank inspected, you can learn if it’s running as efficiently as possible or whether it’s time to replace it. New, high-efficiency tankless water heaters offer you hot water on demand — no more running out of hot water, and they’ll save you money on your energy bill.
When was the last time you changed your furnace filter? Most of the Albertans we’ve worked with are pretty good at remembering to change their filter, but that’s not the only maintenance a furnace needs. Furnaces are a complicated system of parts that all work together to efficiently heat your home. When one or more of those parts aren’t working ideally, it can be difficult for your furnace to heat your home evenly and with minimal amounts of waste-energy. Let our experts take a look to make sure everything is running as it should be.
If there’s one thing all Canadians can agree on, it’s that slow drains are super annoying. No one enjoys standing ankle deep in water as they shower or waiting literally minutes for a sink to fully drain. And while these problems are clearly #firstworldproblems, that doesn’t make them any less annoying for the person dealing with the issues. A professional drain cleaning will clear away any hair, clogs, and frustration. In general, we recommend having drains cleaned around twice a year to keep them flowing freely and minimize annoyances. If you have more hair (or a Newfy dog), you may want to have them cleared more often. If you’re bald (and your only pet is a bearded lizard), you can probably get away with fewer visits from our Calgary plumbers.
This January is a great time to create some new goals and aim for a healthier, happier you. Why not start with your house? Don’t let your hot water tank, furnace, and clogged drains be three more things on your list of stuff that’s stressing you out.
