Q: What is a tankless water heater?
A: Tankless water heaters use high-powered burners that heat water quickly as you use it. The water runs through an energy efficient heat exchanger for a continuous stream of hot water whenever you need it. Unlike traditional models that heat and reheat water all day long, tankless water heaters only heat water when you need it, saving money on your energy bill.
Q: Is it important to hire a plumber who is licensed and insured?
A: Hiring a licensed plumber protects you in various ways. Being licensed means that the contractor has liability insurance so you are covered if any damage is caused to your property. Plumbers work with water lines, gas lines, drain lines, water heaters, faucets, and more. Any and all of which can easily do damage to you home if not handled properly. When a permit is required a licensed plumber will be able to keep everything safe and up to code because knowing the code and permit requirements is part of the licensing process. Florida even have a residential recovery fund where you can get money back if you have suffered a loss from a licensed state contractor.
Q: I’ve watched enough D.I.Y. shows, you think I can do it myself?
A: With the rising cost of everything, more and more homeowners are turning to do-it-yourself (DIY) projects for everything from growing their own produce to car repairs. There are benefits and drawbacks to undertaking these projects yourself. DIY plumbing is attractive because it seems relatively easy and can save money. But before you take on that plumbing project, consider the pros and cons of DIY plumbing. Sure, you can save some money, but you have the risk of quite a few unknowns to contend with. Even simple projects like repairing a leaking faucet or changing a shower head can quickly become complicated. Plumbing is a complex skill that requires years of training.
