Tank or Tankless…That is the Question.

Sometimes, that is exactly the question when your current water heater is about to give out.  Water heaters can be a costly investment for homeowners that you’ll be living with for over a decade.  When it’s time to replace your old water heater it’s important to consider cost, efficiency, and longevity of your new water heater.

What is a tankless water heater?  Tankless water heaters use high-powered burners to rapidly heat water as it runs through a heat exchanger and deliver it directly to your faucets or shower without storing it in a tank.  Tankless water heaters are usually powered with electricity or gas. These types of water heaters were found to be 22 percent more energy efficient!

So, it boils (no pun intended) down to this…initial cost vs. long-term efficiency and savings over time.  Tank or tankless…that is the question.  To get the right answer for your far-West Chicago suburban home contact the water heater installation and repair professionals at Bee Plumbing.  Just visit their website bee-plumbinginc.com and call the phone number in your area.

Business Owners…Remember your Sewers.

It may be one of the last things on your mind, but if a sewer backs up on your property (imagine your restaurant!) you could be shut down for days.  Knowing the condition of your pipes through regular inspection and maintenance may very well prevent a problem before it begins.  Business as usual is always your top priority.

To inspect your business's sewer line, a trained technician will come out and insert a professional video camera into your pipe and will inspect the line.  Since the operator is watching in real time, he or she is able to use the camera to view everything as it makes its way down the pipe from the time it is inserted.

Dirty business?  It can be.  The kind of work only a trained plumber should be asked to do…definitely!  That’s why, if you live in the Central or Southern Fox Valley you call Scott and the pros at Bee Plumbing.  What’s the right number to call?  Just visit their website bee-plumbinginc.com on the web and call the phone number that is right for your area.
