Fix That Line.

You might be chanting that about your favorite football team, but in this case, it refers to damaged or broken water lines at your home or business.  How much does it cost to replace a broken water line and how long does it take?  These are questions that you may be asking, and the answers vary with location and severity.

Here are some steps that a professional plumber will take-

1.  They locate the main valve
2.  It must be shut off at the area where water enters your home
3.  A pipe cutter is used to remove the section in question
4.  Expertly, cut a section of copper pipe used for the repair

Just like any other maintenance job, it is a step-by-step process that, when followed by a pro with years of experience will be guaranteed to fix the problem.  That man is Eric Montoya and his water line repair crew at E M Plumbing Heating and Mechanical.  The Albuquerque area has counted on their plumbing expertise for a very long time.  Give them a call at (505) 980-9334.

Before You Turn On…Tune In.

With apologies to 1960’s pop culture guru Timothy Leary, we are talking about your home’s air conditioning here.  Maybe you are just about to or are in the early stages of using your home’s air conditioning for the summer of 2018.  Don’t wait until it is too late and Albuquerque area temperatures reach mid-summer highs.

Here are some steps to follow when you turn on and crank up the a/c in your home –


1.  Check the condenser unit located outside.
2.  Look carefully at the evaporator unit attached to your furnace, perhaps.
3.  Is the thermostat outdated?
4.  Check exposed ductwork for wear and tear.
5.  Look carefully at the air vents.
6.  Check the drain line.

Air conditioning checks and replacements are one of our many specialties at E M Plumbing Heating and Mechanical.  Don’t wait until summer gets its stranglehold on your household.  Call us for an in-home inspection of your home’s air conditioning system anywhere in the ABQ area and we will give you a fair an honest appraisal of its future.  That’s (505) 980-9334.

Bringing it Up to Code.

It is vitally important that your new home is up to code especially as it pertains to the installation of piping.  Without a doubt, one of the most important aspects of a new construction project is installing the plumbing that links the building to the underground water supply and waste lines.  This is true in residential and commercial construction as well.

There are several considerations plumbers must consider to make sure the plumbing is supplied to every part of the building where it is needed.  The plumber who is chosen must adhere to all local building codes, and also must guarantee that your plumbing installation will be compliant with all regulations.

Attention construction companies in the Albuquerque area!    Eric has headed up a great group of plumbers and specializes in new construction piping installation in the ABQ area.  Before you break ground, make sure that E M Plumbing is on board by calling (505) 980-9334.
Eric Montoya and his crew at E M Plumbing is the right choice!

Is Your Hot Water Heater “Long in the Tooth”?

Just what is the life expectancy of a hot water heater?  The average life expectancy of a tank water heater is about eight to 15 years. After 10 years, its operating efficiency dramatically reduces.  So, as it enters double digits in age look for tell-tale signs that it may need to be replaced.  Let’s avoid catastrophe…shall we!

Here are some signs to look for –

1.  You start hearing strange noises…usually due to sediment build-up.
2.  You notice that the water is becoming rust-colored.
3.  Water builds up at the bottom of the tank.
4.  The water it dispenses is cooler than usual.

If you live somewhere long enough you simply must eventually replace your faithful water heater.  That is a job for the Albuquerque area water heater professionals at E M Plumbing.  When that time comes, call Eric to come in and have a look so he can give you an estimate.  Keep cool and stay hot!  Call E M Plumbing at (505) 980-9334.
