Time to Address Your Bathroom.

There is a topic that we don’t think about every day, but when the time comes to remodel your bathroom it is a significant decision.  Your family spends many combined hours a day using one or more of them in your home.  Perhaps one of your bathrooms either needs remodeling or you would just like to upgrade the facilities.

There are as many ideas as there are bathrooms.  Perhaps the best place to start is to visit the internet for bathroom remodeling ideas.  Your first consideration is who uses that particular bath, shower, toilet, sink, etc.  Is it the second or third bathroom or is it the master bath which you may want to devote more time and money to get it right?

Your vision comes to fruition when you contact the right company.  The answer is Albuquerque bathroom remodeling expert Eric Montoya of E M Plumbing and Heating.  Please give Eric a call and start the New Year right by realizing your dream of a newly remodeled bathroom.  He and his team are just a phone call away at (505) 980-9334.

Oh, Oh, It’s Going to get Cold around here Real Fast!

What are the telltale signs that you should replace your furnace?  I know, you don’t want to think about it, but you had better do so as the New Year is upon us.  It is not going to warm up any time soon and a new furnace is not just for now, but for many years in the future.  Albuquerque area winters are cold and harsh.

Here are some of the signs –

1.  Obviously, old age.  The life expectancy of a natural gas furnace is just under 20 years.
2.  Your energy bills are rising.  Efficiency decreases and bills increase.
3.  Frequent repairs.  It is costing more to keep it going than to replace it.
4.  Some rooms are warmer than others.
5.  If you have a mostly yellow flame it is producing too much carbon monoxide.

That last point is a serious one.  It is not only inefficient, but downright dangerous!  When you notice any of these traits call Albuquerque area heating expert Eric Montoya of E M Plumbing and Heating.  Warm, safe air in ABQ is just a phone call away.  Get a free estimate right away by calling (505) 980-9334.

Don’t Touch that Red Tag!

What is a “red tag repair”?  In the world of construction and maintenance it means that the equipment in question is unsafe.  It is also known as a product warning tag. It may be placed on a gas appliance by a licensed technician to indicate that it is no longer safe to operate and either needs to be repaired or replaced.

A red tag means do not touch unless you are trained in these type of repairs.  Warning tags are issued on any appliance or perhaps a piping system that uses natural gas.  This should get your attention…if carbon monoxide is leaking from a cracked heat exchanger, there is a chance of it mixing with the air.

Red tags are no joking matter.  This is NOT a sale at K-Mart!  It is important to have a trained technician repair the problem so that the tag may be removed.  Eric Montoya of E M Plumbing is Albuquerque’s red tag specialist.  Make sure that you call him in just such an emergency.  His phone number is (505) 980-9334.
