When you hear the words “water heater,” you most likely imagine a storage tank water heater—the large, metal cylinders that get installed somewhere out of the way in your home. These are the most popular heaters used across the country, and for good reason. They’re inexpensive to install and they last a good ten to fifteen years.
On the other hand, you may have heard about tankless water heaters. These devices heat water on demand, so they don’t need a storage tank to hold heated water.
If you’re weighing these two options, one question you might ask is, “Does the tankless heater need less maintenance?”

Of course, these filters wouldn’t exist if they didn’t have their own unique functions. Keep reading and we’ll break them all down for you.

In truth, there’s a much better way of using your ceiling fans—and it even works during the winter! Keep reading and we’ll explain.

Homeowners in dryer climates might not even know what a sump pump is, let alone think about needing one. But in areas where rainfall is a seasonal burden, the need for a sump pump makes plenty of sense.

Our homes’ electrical systems are so ubiquitous, it’s easy to forget they’re there. They just work! Likewise, there are various electrical appliances in our homes we take for granted every day. They just work—until they don’t. Or, they can stop working right when we need them the most.
But as long as you’re having your system maintained regularly, there’s nothing to fear. In particular, here are three electrical services you should have performed to ensure you and your family remain safe.

With all the efforts of switching to solar energy, are you at all surprised to hear that even water heaters are using solar energy? Well, it turns out that solar water heaters are nothing new. The first solar heater was invented around 200 BCE in Rome. It wasn’t until the late 1800s that solar water heaters made a reappearance, and now we’re using them again. Of course, the solar water heaters we use now are built with modern technology, and they make for excellent alternatives to gas or electric heaters. We’ll go into more depth below to find out if a solar water heater makes sense for your needs.

If you called a plumber and he showed up with nothing but a plunger and a monkey wrench, how would you respond? Would you assume that he was a wise master of plumbing? Someone who could dislodge any clog, fix any leak, and repair any water heater with just these tools?

You don’t know the specifics, but you know that someone needs to look at your HVAC system—preferably sooner than later. It’s not working, or it’s making weird noises, or it’s just not doing what it’s supposed to. So, who do you call?
This is the scenario that many homeowners find themselves in just before calling for repairs on their heater or air conditioner. While some homeowners may be tempted to call up a local handyman, or a friend who “knows a thing or two” about air conditioners, we recommend skipping the risk and settling on a proper HVAC contractor. Here’s why:

We aren’t expected to start seeing cooler weather for at least a couple more months—but that doesn’t mean your AC hasn’t been working hard for the length of a normal summer season. That continuous use over time will put your AC under the true test; any outstanding issues in the AC will most likely surface now as summer comes to an (eventual) close.
While nothing can replace regular maintenance, we know that some AC issues do just happen out of nowhere. And when they do, hopefully this list of signs will help clue you in on whether you should call in for air conditioning repair in Naples, FL.
