Cozy Comfort This Winter AND Lower Utility Bills? Yes!?


Cozy Comfort This Winter AND Lower Utility Bills? Yes Please!​

Prepare for Winter 2019

It’s almost time to trade your leaf rake for a snow shovel and your short sleeves for down jackets. Before cold weather arrives, be sure your home is prepared to keep you cozy and comfortable all winter with home heating solutions.

If your 6th grader is younger than your water heater, it may be time for a replacement (for the water heater, of course!).  Maybe your house has cold spots in your living room or bedrooms. And that old tank-style water heater just can’t keep up with all the hot showers and baths the whole family loves in the winter.

The winter is a challenging time for your plumbing system. Pipes that are not properly winterized or insulated can remain full of water and explode when the water freezes. Your water heater or tankless water heater has to work harder to provide hot water. Your pipes could freeze if your furnace stops working. Any one of these situations can make for a long, uncomfortable winter. But the good news is, it’s never been easier to keep winter from wreaking havoc on your home’s plumbing system.

All of this is to say that, for any homeowner, preparing your plumbing for the winter is a good idea. It can save you a lot of headaches and discomfort as well as time and money.

Endless Hot Water with a Tankless Water Heater​​

Maybe you’ve never thought about it, but in wintertime you probably use more hot water. After all, who doesn’t like a good, hot soak in the tub after coming in from the cold? Or at least a long, hot shower?

With a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater, you’ll enjoy all the hot water you need—while also saving on energy and water costs. Justice Plumbing can install one in a closet, laundry room or other small space, because they’re only about the size of a carry-on suitcase. And you’ll get about twice the service life than that of a traditional tank-style unit.

If you’re like most people you may not give your water heater much thought until you find yourself taking a cold shower in winter. When your water heater is working properly it can be easy to forget about it. However, after years of being in use, water heaters require maintenance and may need to be replaced.

Recently had your water heater replaced?

If you had a water heater replacement recently, we recommend that annual maintenance is done on your water heater to help prevent future issues, extend the life, and identify other potential plumbing issues that can damage your new system. Because plumbing is a system of interconnected pipes, when you have an issue in one section of your property, that can affect plumbing capabilities in other sections. Extend the life of your water heater and prevent future plumbing problems from occurring with annual water heater repair and maintenance.

Essential Tips to Prepare for Winter​

Water heaters can fail for a variety of reasons. Many traditional, tank-based water heaters tend to build up quite a bit of sediment, which can clog the pipes and valves, preventing hot water from escaping. Older water heaters may just fail without warning, especially if they are over 10-15 years old.

Having one of our plumbing professionals check your water heater before the weather turns frigid is a worthwhile investment. We can make sure that everything looks good, and that any potential repairs can be done before the weather hits below-freezing temperatures.

This is also a good time to consider upgrading to a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters are more mechanically simple – and efficient – compared to traditional, tank-based water heaters.

This means that they last longer (20+ years), and are more reliable for delivering the hot water that you need, even during the cold winter months. If your water heater is failing or unreliable, now may be the perfect time to replace it completely.
