Is it Time to Flush your Water Heater?

Springtime is a great time to take care of annual household duties.  Flushing your home’s water heater is a perfect example.  How long has it been and why does it need to be done?  Your water heater needs regular maintenance for top performance. A water heater flush clears out sediment and minerals, such as calcium and lime, that could impede your heater’s performance.

How is it done by a professional?  A technician attaches a hose to your tank, empties it into an approved drain, then fills the water back up. In the process, they clear out sediment and other buildup inside the tank and provide a clean unimpeded surface for heating water. In most cases, rods will be inspected and cleaned as well as ventilation and other important parts.

It’s time to pay attention to your water heater to ensure longer life and save lots of money in the long-run.  For decades people in Albuquerque have turned to Eric Montoya of E M Plumbing.  He and his team are water heater repair and replacement professionals in ABQ and the surrounding area.  Give him a call today at (505) 980-9334.

February Vacations in New Mexico

(Click the link above for more information)

"When northern states experience harsh, cold temperatures in February, many places in central and southern New Mexico experience milder weather."

Drip, Drip, Drip.

An old commercial used this to describe stomach acid.  If you have a faucet or faucets in your home that continues to drip it can create an upset stomach from the annoyance.  During each use, the washer is forced against the valve seat, and this constant friction and resistance causes it to wear out. As a result, you notice dripping around the spout.

Here are some of the causes of an annoying leaky faucet –

1.  Damage parts such as O rings, inlet or outlet seals.
2.  An old, worn out cartridge.
3.  The water pressure may be too high.
4.  Possibly, a broken pipe or fitting.

Stop being frustrated by a leaky faucet!  Call a pro to tackle the problem.  Your Albuquerque area professional plumber is Eric Montoya the owner of E M Plumbing Heating and Mechanical.  Leaks in your home or office will disappear quickly when you call his team to come in and troubleshoot the problem.  That number is (505) 980-9334.

It Ain’t Over ‘Til it’s Over.

Ah, the immortal words of Yogi Berra.  These words (please excuse the grammar) ring true this time of year in the Albuquerque area.  We are close enough to the desert southwest to believe that winter is just about over, but as residents for many years, we know that just is simply not the case.  It has a way to go.

That means simply this…if your furnace has been limping along this winter then it may be about to go out.  Whether it is an ABQ home or business that is just unacceptable this time of year!  What are you going to do…wear heavy coats indoors until May?  Maybe your heating system just needs a repair or maybe it needs to be replaced.

Whatever the case the answer in this area for decades has been Eric Montoya and his team at EM Plumbing Heating and Mechanical.  We won’t try to sell you a bill of goods.  We will come to your home or business and check your entire heating system, then make a recommendation.  Stay comfortable throughout the winter and call us at (505) 980-9334.
