  • Common Reasons to Use Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

    Albert Nahman Plumbing & Heating Trenchless Sewer Repair

    Trenchless sewer line repair and replacement is one of the newest, most useful processes in the plumbing industry. In the past, typical sewer line repair and replacement methods required plumbers to dig up the homeowner’s property in order to reach the affected areas. But, with modern technology and specialized tools, trenchless sewer line repair methods allow homeowners to avoid any and all property damage. With this in mind, here are the some of the most common reasons homeowners use trenchless sewer line repair and replacement

    Avoid Damage to Property
    Because conventional methods require plumbers to dig up your property , you may also have to move or destroy anything that is obstructing the plumber’s path to your sewer line. For instance, if you have verandas, expensive landscaping, or any other prominent feature on your landscape, they will have to be moved before the plumbers can begin work on your sewer line. The cost of replacing these items can be very expensive, and removing these items can be time-consuming and difficult.

    Save Time
    Trenchless sewer line repair and replacement also takes less time than conventional methods. Not only does the process itself take less time—just a few hours waiting for the resin to harden—but you also don’t have to deal with the disruption caused by the destruction of your property. With trenchless sewer line repair and replacement, you will not have to worry about repairing the damage done by trenching.

    Save Money
    With traditional sewer line replacement methods costing as much as $20,000 dollars or more, trenchless sewer line replacement can be a much less expensive option. Furthermore, since trenchless sewer line repairs can be done at a lower cost and in less time, homeowners will be more inclined to maintain their sewer lines and avoid more serious problems.

  • Tankless Water Heaters Vs. Conventional Storage Units

    When it comes time to replace your water heater, you will have a choice between a conventional storage unit-type water heater and a tankless model. While your plumber can help you determine which type is best for your home and needs, consider the following information on the differences between these two types of water heaters .

    Cost: Tankless water heaters generally cost more money up front than conventional water heaters. However, according to Energy.gov , tankless water heaters can result in energy savings of 27-50% when compared to traditional storage unit water heaters. Because of the amount of money you can save per year on electricity when using a tankless water heater, the initial cost difference becomes minor.

    Space: Traditional water heaters include a large storage tank and, therefore, take up quite a bit of space in your home. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, are small and compact—this is especially important if you have limited space to work with, such as in a condo or small home.

    Lifespan: Tankless units also have a longer lifespan than the average conventional water heater. While conventional water heaters last around 10 years, a tankless water heater can last 15 to 20 years. This will save you money in the long run, as well as give you peace of mind in knowing that your new tankless water heater will be functional for many years.

    Effectiveness: Conventional water heaters provide a limited amount of hot water. Once that hot water is used up, you must wait for more water to be heated. This can be inconvenient and frustrating. With a tankless model, however, you can enjoy a constant supply of hot water, so you’ll never have to wait to enjoy a hot shower.

    Are you interested in a tankless water heater for your home? Albert Nahman Plumbing can supply you with the best tankless water heaters available, and our plumbers can complete the installation process quickly and conveniently.
