Water Mains…A Main Topic.

Water mains are one of those things that you would rather not deal with.  If your current water main is having problems, then it's likely going to result in major problems for you. If you're trying to install a new water main in your home or business, then you want to be sure it's done right the first time…guaranteed!

Here are some things that a trained professional will look for –

1.  Access…obstructions such as trees must be factored into the job.
2.  How deep does the hole need to be dug?
3.  Will extreme temperature changes throughout the year need to be factored in?
4.  Obtaining the proper permits.

Eric and his team of pros has been serving the Albuquerque area with all of its water main needs for years.  It does not matter the size of the job, be it an existing family home, a new construction or one of ABQ’s many businesses E M Plumbing is always the right choice for water main installation or repair.  Give Eric a call at (505) 980-9334.

Cooler Weather is Nearly Here.

Indeed it is!  As the seasons change we generally switch to central heating in another month or so.  When we do, will our heating system be working up to capacity?  When you want to heat your home, you switch on the boiler with an electric switch.  Voila, it works each and every time…right?

What is supposed to happen is that a valve will open then gas enters a sealed combustion chamber in the boiler through a myriad of small jets, and an electric ignition system sets them ablaze.  The gas jets play onto a heat exchanger connected to a pipe carrying cold water.  The average life expectancy of a gas boiler is 10-15 years.

Where do you stand in your Albuquerque area home?  Have you simply lost track of how long your home’s boiler has been cranking along keeping you warm every winter?  Now is a great time to have your boiler checked by Eric and the pros at E M Plumbing Heating and Mechanical.  There is no room for surprises.  Call Eric at (505) 980-9334.

Oh No, A Broken Water Line.

When a water line inside your home breaks, it usually doesn’t take long to know it.  Fittings and connections in supply lines are the most common culprit in these events, as are things like nails from construction projects or vibrating pipes.  Not every leak is that obvious to find and needs to be troubleshot as well.

There are minor leaks and those that are underground, either under a home’s foundation or between the street or well and the house.  What causes these particular leaks?  They are typically caused by deterioration from age or that occur because the house or the ground is settling.  In rare cases, the break is caused by freezing.

A burst pipe is obvious…a leaky one, not so much.  At the very first sign of a broken water line please pick up your phone and call Eric of E M Plumbing Heating and Mechanical.  He and his team serve all of the plumbing and HVAC needs in the Albuquerque area.  Keep Eric’s number handy.  Call (505) 980-9334.
