Tankless water heaters are the most energy-efficient hot water systems on the market. In fact, tankless water heaters can be approximately 35% - 80% more efficient than traditional hot water tanks.
Tankless hot water heaters can be powered by electricity or gas. However, gas-powered tankless heaters are more efficient. In addition to being more energy-efficient, tankless water heaters cost less to operate (up to 50% less than traditional hot water tanks) and last longer (up to double the lifetime).

The strongest drain cleaner is an acidic drain cleaner. When you have a clogged drain, it’s always best to try snaking or plunging it first. This method will ensure you do not damage your pipes. If that fails, give a drain cleaning product a try (at your own risk).
Different types of drain cleaners have different uses. When you have a tough clog - hair, food, grease, soap scum, paper - an acidic drain cleaning product will be your best bet.
Keep in mind that you should never use chemical drain cleaning products in a completely clogged drain. These types of clogs require the product to sit in the drain for an extended period and this can cause damage to your pipes.
If a drain cleaning product doesn’t cut it, plumbing contractors in Edmonton can help. Contact a local, experienced plumber to have your drains unclogged and working like new in no time.
There are several reasons a faucet may drip or leak. Most commonly, a defective part will cause a faucet to drip. However, more serious problems can also be indicated by a dripping faucet. For example, if your plumbing is not properly maintained and regularly cleaned, corrosion can result, leading to leaky pipes and a leaking faucet. In addition, extreme changes in temperature, a shifting foundation, high water pressure, and intrusive tree roots can also cause pipes to leak. In order to fix a dripping faucet, you’ll first need to find the location of the leak. In some cases, the leak may be difficult to find. If the cause of your dripping faucet is not obvious, having a qualified plumber detect and repair the leak is vital, as it could result in costly damage to your home if left unrepaired. If you notice a leak, make sure to contact an emergency plumber in Edmonton as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
In Edmonton, you can expect to pay approximately $3,000 - $7,000 for a new water heater to be installed. This estimate includes the price of a high quality hot water tank, as well as installation. Keep in mind, the cost to have a professional Edmonton plumbing services provider install a water heater in your home will depend on the complexity of the installation, and the hot water tank you choose to purchase. For a simple job in which one hot water tank is being replaced by a new tank of the same type, the labour costs will not be too high. However, if you are having a hot water heater installed in a new location or in a home that does not currently have one, you will be looking at a more difficult job and therefore a higher price.
On average, sump pumps last about 10 years. As with any other appliance in your home, a sump pump can become damaged and may need to be replaced as it gets older or experiences more use. Unfortunately, unlike other appliances, it isn’t always obvious when a sump pump has reached the end of its life. In fact, this isn’t usually detected until the sump pump should be working but fails to do its job. In order to prevent your sump pump from failing when you need it most, it’s important to contact a professional plumber nearby to provide sump pump services if you notice that there is no water in the sump pit when your pump is running, if you see rust, if there is a musty or dank odour in your basement, if you hear strange noises coming from your sump pump or if the pump is failing to run automatically.
The difference between a boiler and a hot water tank has to do with the way in which each uses the hot water that it produces.
Both boilers and hot water tanks take cool water, heat this water and then distribute it throughout a home via pipes. However, the water that is heated by a boiler is distributed throughout the home via pipes, radiators and radiant in-floor systems in order to heat it - to keep the rooms, floors, garage, etc. comfortable and warm.
On the other hand, a hot water tank heats water that is used for cooking and cleaning purposes - for showers, dishwashing, laundry, etc.
It can cost anywhere from $3,500 to $5,500 to get a water softener installed in your home. This estimate includes the price of the unit as well as installation. The total cost will range depending on several factors including the type of water softener you choose, the softener’s capacity, the size of your home and the difficulty of the installation. In order to avoid unnecessary costs down the road, it’s important that you have your water softener installed by an expert. Water softener installation in Edmonton is ideal, especially if you are constantly having to deal with soap scum and limescale buildup or you want to increase the longevity of your household appliances that use water.
Tankless water heaters have many benefits over traditional hot water tanks however, the truth is, a tankless water heater is not worth it for everyone. Any professional plumbing company can tell you that a tankless hot water system is best for homes that don’t often use large amounts of hot water. For example, if you often take baths in a large tub, or you have numerous high-volume shower heads in your shower, then an on-demand hot water system may not be worth it. On the other hand, a tankless hot water heater will save you money over time, you won’t run out of hot water and it will last much longer than a traditional hot water tank. Consult your local tankless water heater plumber and they can help you decide whether a tankless water heater is right for you.
