Is Your Household Wasting Water?

Water conservation is important for every household, especially in dry California. Since about 60% of all water is used in the bathroom, it makes sense to have a plumber begin upgrades here. Installing a low-flow showerhead can save up to 20,000 gallons of water every year. It will also cut your water heating costs. Plumbers also recommend installing a faucet with a water aerator, which saves water without affecting the pressure.

For more helpful tips, watch the accompanying video. You’ll learn about nearly waterless car wash techniques, and how to make your toilet use less water. This expert strongly recommends that you get your leaks fixed as soon as you notice them.

Call (510) 843-6904 to have a plumber in Berkeley fix your water leak right away. The team at Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating also provide expert bathroom remodeling services, including the installation of water-efficient faucets and shower heads.

How to Respond to Toilet Overflow

A toilet overflow can definitely cause homeowners to panic, but it doesn’t have to turn into a disaster. With a little quick thinking and then help from your emergency plumber, you can protect your home from damage and get back to normal as quickly as possible.

The first thing to do if your toilet is overflowing is to turn off the water with the shut-off valve. This should be at the base of the pipe running into your toilet, but if you can’t find it, lifting the lid and propping the float so that it doesn’t let the tank fill anymore will also work. Next, call your emergency plumber so you can get repairs made immediately. While you’re waiting for a plumber, clean any water on the floor as much as you can. Large spills may require a Shop-Vac. You should also disinfect all surfaces.

Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating is here to help whenever a plumbing emergency strikes, no matter what time of day it is. For emergency plumbing in Berkeley, call us at (510) 843-6904.

How Can I Tell How Efficient My Furnace Is?

Your furnace demands a major share of your home’s energy, so it’s important to ensure that it is running as efficiently as possible. If you haven’t evaluated your furnace in some time, you could be overpaying for heating and using more energy than you have to. These tips will help you determine how efficient your furnace really is.

Check Your AFUE Ratings

AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. This rating gives you an idea of how much energy your furnace requires to produce a specific amount of heat. By checking your AFUE rating, you can learn a lot about the efficiency of your system. If you have an AFUE rating of 85%, for example, 85% of the energy used by your furnace creates heating, while 15% of it is lost through inefficiency. Keep in mind that AFUE doesn’t tell the whole picture about energy loss, but it does give you a good starting point to consider aspects of efficiency.

Find Out When Your Last Furnace Maintenance Service Was

Furnace maintenance is something that frequently falls by the wayside, but ignoring maintenance needs allows your furnace’s efficiency to dip. Check your records to find out when your last maintenance appointment was. If it wasn’t in the last year, there is a good chance that your furnace is not operating efficiently. Schedule a maintenance appointment and consider enrolling in a furnace maintenance plan so that you don’t fall behind again.

Review Your Energy Bills

Rising energy bills are a clear indicator of a change in efficiency. Sometimes, a spike is obvious, but in other cases, your energy costs may slowly rise in a way that you don’t even notice. Review your bills over the past several months to see if there is a steady increase. If so, your furnace could be to blame.

Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating offers a range of furnace service, from furnace repairs and maintenance to replacement. For furnace service in Berkeley, call us today at (510) 843-6904.

Cutting Costs with Your Water Heater

Your water heater is responsible for an enormous share of your home energy costs. In this video, you can learn how to adjust the way your water heater works so you can save money on your power bills.

Water heaters are usually set at around 120 degrees Fahrenheit, which may be warmer than you need, especially in the summer months. By adjusting that temperature downward, you can reduce your energy use while still having an adequate supply of hot water.

At Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating, we are committed to helping homeowners have the most efficient plumbing systems and appliances in their homes. For everything from water heater repairs to tankless water heaters in Berkeley, call our plumbers at (510) 843-6904.
