Bring in 2011 With a New Bathroom Sink

sink

We’re hours away – literally – from the start of a new year. Kick off 2011 the right way with some remodeling around the home. When it comes to bathroom remodeling, a new sink can really add a sense of elegance to the location. There are various options to choose from, including wall-mounted sinks or even pedestal sinks. They can come in all shapes and sizes, but make sure you have enough room in your bathroom to fulfill the plans for your dream sink. Most sinks come in either porcelain or marble. Metal surfaces also are reliable options. Make your decision based on how often a sink will get used, in addition to who plans on using the sink. A household with small children may want to invest in something that has durability, such as white porcelain. Metal sinks (brass, steel, copper, etc.) will require more management. Keep in mind that the more glamorous you want your sink, the more it may cost to purchase and install. Once you make your decision, allow our expert plumbers in Charlotte NC to assist you with your faucet and sink needs. Call our plumbing company today, or contact us online for more details.

Buy a tankless, earn tax credit

Tankless Water Heater

We’re days away from Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. Whichever festive holiday you celebrate, our plumbing company wishes you nothing but peace and joy. In addition to the festivities, we’re also days away from the expiration of the tax credit consumers can earn for purchasing energy-efficient appliances. The tax credit covers everything from energy-efficient HVAC systems to energy-efficient windows and doors – as well as energy-efficient water heaters. If you ever were considering trading in that clunky traditional water heater for a more compact tankless water heater, now is the time to do so. Tankless water heaters are becoming the option for more and more consumers not only because they take up less space but also because they provide an unlimited supply of hot water throughout your home. Keep in mind that to be eligible for the tax credit, you must purchase a gas tankless water heater. Electric tankless water heaters are not eligible for the credit. Feel free to check the Energy Star website for more details. The credit can help you significantly, as it will cover 30 percent of the cost of improvements. Taxpayers can receive a credit of up to $1,500 for all improvements that qualify under the … Continue reading

A Better Kitchen Remodeling Project

Plumber

Aside from a nicer space and greater creature comforts, a kitchen remodel carries with it a number of advantages, not the least of which is the fact that the cost will usually more than repay for itself when calculated into the home’s resale value. Still, the up-front cost can be daunting, and determining what fixtures to replace can be a difficult decision. Setting up your budget in advance is the most important qualifier in planning your kitchen remodel. Pick Your Battles Know that kitchen remodels are quite an undertaking, and you may be looking at living without a kitchen for days, weeks, or even months, depending on how extensively you intend to remodel the room. It might be to your benefit to work in stages, so that you have a majority of the appliances and fixtures working at any given time. For example, don’t remove the cooktop, microwave, and oven all at once. Also, if there are appliances that are new and still mesh with the new design, you may want to save the expense of replacement. Shop for a Contractor Get estimates from different contractors. You most likely won’t use the same contractor for every portion of the job. … Continue reading

Selecting Your Water Heater

Hot Water Heater

Winter is upon us, and as the Charlotte weather cools down, you’ve discovered through a most unpleasant experience in a cold shower that your water heater is no longer up to par with the demands of your household. It’s time to replace the old hot water heater tank with a newer, more efficient, functional model, but you aren’t sure how to determine the best unit for the job. The real problem is that there is no single answer, as various applications and needs require a different size, type, and method of water heating capabilities. Here are some factors to consider when contacting your Charlotte plumbing contractor about purchasing and installing a new water heater. Longevity Hot water heaters come with various warranties, but don’t be fooled by the longer promise factor. While you may have a choice between a 6-year warranty and a 12-year warranty, there is little difference between the two, with the exception of perhaps an extra anode or an extra half-length outlet rod in the hot port. Rather than paying the premium for the longer warranty, consider extending the longevity of your water heater tank by purchasing a full-length rod, which is as simple as screwing it into the hot port, … Continue reading
