Why Professional Drain Cleaning Is Important

October 3rd, 2022

There’s a big difference between “professional drain cleaning” and just “drain cleaning.” Professional plumbers have access to a number of special tools that are different sizes, training, and experience in order to handle even the most clogged up drains. Homeowners, on the other hand, can sometimes spend hours upon hours trying to relieve even a moderate drain clog with no success. This is why we need to call attention to the difference.

We know that professional drain cleaning is more expensive than addressing a problem yourself. But when you spend ten hours and miss a day of work trying to relieve a stubborn clog, instead of calling a trained pro to get the job done in two, are you really saving that much money in the long run?

The answer is no, but we’ll get into the specifics below. To make a long story short—always trust a pro for plumbing in Clifton, NJ!

What Causes a Drain Clog?

September 5th, 2022

For new and old homeowners alike, sometimes a drain clog can seem confusing. You didn’t necessarily put anything solid or rough down your drain, so how could it be clogging all of a sudden? Your pipes are in good shape and the last home inspection you had specifically mentioned that your home’s plumbing was in good condition. So … what gives?

Well, first of all, a home inspection or just a quick run-through of your pipes can’t see what’s inside of them. This is why an inspection can be misleading, since a drain system can be majorly clogged without it ever showing up except when you try to use the drain for an extended period of time. But the truth is that you might have accidentally clogged up your drain with materials that otherwise feel fine to flush. In this case, you might need drain cleaning in West Orange, NJ.

Our Tips for Spotting Ductless Problems

August 8th, 2022

Ductless air conditioners can run into problems just like central AC units! The tricky part is that some problems can be a little different because of the system’s layout and cooling distribution. For instance, a single air handler can break down if you have a ductless system, but the other air handlers will still continue to work (and efficiently too) so it can sometimes be harder to notice there’s a problem.

Also, some of the problems that occur with a ductless mini split system can happen all year round, since the unit is a dedicated heater as well. So sometimes our readers can run into issues that likely get ignored until the next summer, when they’re really a heating problem that needs to be addressed ASAP.

Let’s talk about ductless air conditioning repair in Wayne, NJ, and how you can spot a potential problem.

3 Reasons for Ice on Your AC

June 27th, 2022

We don’t really use ice to cool the air in our home. While ice might be a great addition to a cool beverage, or to a cooler when you go camping, it’s not going to do any good when your home is in need of cooling. For starters, ice only cools small objects and areas. You don’t want to know how much ice it would take to cool your entire home, and the energy involved in making that much ice would be absurd!

However, ice can still form on an air conditioner. We know this not just because we’re HVAC professionals, but because it’s a common problem that we hear about all the time. If you’ve ever noticed ice growing on the coil of your AC, then you’ve got a problem we might be talking about down below. Just make sure you call us for your air conditioning in Roseland, NJ.
