Red Tag…You’re It!

What is a Red Tag repair?  It sounds rather ominous, doesn’t it?  The truth is, it is serious and demands immediate attention.  When a red tag appears on a gas appliance it means that it is no longer safe to use.  At that point, you DO NOT mess with it yourself!  You either have it repaired or replace it.

If a licensed technician puts one of these on any piping system or appliance you need to take it very seriously.  In a smaller sense, it is like calling in the “bomb squad”.  If there is a carbon monoxide leak, it can accumulate in your blood stream putting everyone in your home at risk.  Is that enough for you to take action?

So, if you are given the “gift” of a red tag on one of your appliances here is the next step.  If you live in the ABQ area you pick up the phone and call Eric Montoya of E M Plumbing.  Eric is Albuquerque’s expert at red tag appliance and pipe repair.  Let a professional do the job.  Call him right away at (505) 980-9334.

Transition Time.

Don’t you love this time of year in Albuquerque?  Cooler spring temperatures give way to glorious long summer days.  Longer daylight means that your whole house air conditioning system needs to be ready for consistent temperatures up to 90 degrees and beyond.  Have you turned on you’re A/C yet?

This time of year, it is entirely possible that your air conditioning will be running at full capacity one day, then the next you find your family shivering in the morning.  At the very least a professional should check your air conditioning system to make sure that it is ready for the rigors of another New Mexico summer.

There are some basic maintenance check-list items that he will do.  What is important is to find someone who will NOT try to sell you a whole new A/C system if you don’t need it.  That is why you need to call Eric Montoya of EM Plumbing.  Eric is your ABQ expert at getting you ready for air conditioning season.  Give him a call today at (505) 980-9334.
