Gas vs. Electric.

It’s a question that homeowners have grappled with for decades.  Do I have a gas water heater installed or an electric one?  Depending on your local utility costs gas water heaters are usually cheaper to operate.  Understand, that they cost more than electric ones, but because of the energy savings they usually make that up in about a year.

The majority of gas water heaters operate with a pilot light.  They heat water even when the electricity is off.  Because the gas one’s heat water at a ratio nearly twice as fast as electric models, if you rely on a gas water heater for bathing during an outage it will be an economical choice.  Just one of several things to consider.

The choice is yours, the professionals who will help you make that choice in the Chattanooga area are the ones at All Home Plumbing.  All Home is a plumbing company that will troubleshoot, repair, and install gas, electric, and even tankless water heaters.  Give them a call today at (423) 598-1466.

Where is that Leak Coming From?

One day you are in your Chattanooga area home all warm and dry, the next you may notice that there is a leak coming from somewhere.  Maybe water is seeping into the walls or ceiling.  That’s a pretty good indication of a problem.  However, a leak in the pipes outside your home is a little harder to detect.

Here are some signs that you have a broken water line on your property –

1.  Your water bill keeps going up.
2.  The water pressure is noticeably lower.
3.  There are soft, even slushy spots on your lawn.

Do not ignore these signs!  The next step is a real flooding situation that can devastate your property.  All Home Plumbing of Chattanooga TN is the company to call in the area at the first sign of a possible leaky water pipe.  Wherever you are in our area, please remember All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.
