    The Benefits of Updating Your Kitchen and Bathroom Faucets

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Kitchen and bathroom faucets are the visible parts of your home’s plumbing. They are also some of the hardest-working fixtures in a home, used every time you want to turn the water on or off. Updating older faucets can save you money and instantaneously improve the look of any room.

    Less Wasted Water
    A leaky faucet can waste almost 55 gallons of water each year. Aging faucets may require multiple repairs or need to be retrofitted with new parts in order to remain functional. Upgrading old or broken fixtures will automatically eliminate these costly plumbing leaks, preventing wasted water from adding to your bill. Furthermore, there are many newer low-flow faucets that use up to 50% less water than older models. Less water used means a lower water bill, adding up to big savings in the long run.

    Improved Aesthetics
    Have you thought about how your plumbing affects the look of your kitchen or bathroom? A plain faucet might not stand out, but it doesn’t add anything to the room’s design either. Maybe you’ve changed your style after your last faucet purchase. There is a wide variety of faucet finishes and styles available at prices to suit any budget. You can choose a faucet that complements the rest of your room’s décor to drastically improve its look and feel.

    Extra Features
    With the advancement of technology has come plumbing fixtures that offer more convenience than ever. A pullout faucet includes a flexible hose and sprayer attachment built right into the fixture. This makes it much easier to wash large dishes or hard-to-reach places in the shower. Touch- or motion-activated faucets allow you to turn the water on and off without getting your faucet dirty.

    Gas Safety 101

    Last updated 4 years ago

    If your water heater uses gas to heat the water it provides to your home or business, it’s important to know how to handle gas problems safely. An improperly maintained appliance can create carbon monoxide, which poses a serious health hazard if inhaled.

    This video explains how carbon monoxide is formed as a result of natural gas combustion. Carbon monoxide can cause a number of health effects, including nausea, vomiting, headaches, and unconsciousness. Regular maintenance of your water heater can prevent carbon monoxide production, and a CO detector will warn you if this gas is present. 

    If you have questions about the safety or function of your water heater, a plumber can give you peace of mind. Contact Expert Plumbing Service at (708) 231-4792 for water heater inspections, maintenance, and repair in Joliet, New Lenox, and Naperville.

    Your Guide to Gas Leaks

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Many homes have water heaters, clothes dryers, stoves, and fireplaces that use natural gas to provide heat or supply hot water. Unfortunately, with any gas-fired appliance comes the possibility of a gas leak. If you suspect a gas leak in your home, contact a plumber immediately for repairs.

    Signs of a Gas Leak
    Natural gas itself has no color, taste, or odor. Gas providers add a “rotten egg” smell to help you detect the presence of gas. If you smell a foul odor in your home, it could be due to a gas leak. Other signs of a gas leak in your water heater include an audible hissing sound near the appliance. If escaping gas has also ignited, the pilot light may be larger than normal and additional flames could be visible.

    Steps to Take in the Event of a Gas Leak
    If it is possible to do so safely, find your home’s main gas valve and shut it off. This will prevent more gas from entering your home. Because there could be gas in your home, it’s essential to prevent sparks that could ignite it. Don’t use light switches, cooking appliances, lighters, or electronics, including cell phones. Leave your home immediately, taking pets with you. Walk to a neighbor’s house or another safe location rather than driving, as the exhaust from your vehicle is also a potential risk for gas ignition. Once you are safely away from your home, call your gas provider and a plumber. Never try to find or repair the gas leak yourself. Repairs of this kind should only be performed by a professional.

    Gas leaks are serious emergencies, requiring professional handling and repair. Call Expert Plumbing Service of New Lenox at (708) 231-4792 if you experience a gas leak or other plumbing-related problem in your home or business. Our licensed and certified plumbers have the knowledge and expertise it takes to handle natural gas-fired plumbing issues safely and quickly. Click on our website to learn more!
