Installing Low-Flow Plumbing Fixtures

Monday, March 24th, 2014

Don't allow water to go out the drain!The conservation of water is important, especially considering the fact that many states including our own are experiencing the conditions brought about by drought, but so is ensuring you are provided with impressive plumbing performance. Making the switch to low-flow plumbing fixtures can deliver both. But that’s not all! Low-flow plumbing fixtures can also save you money on those dreaded monthly energy bills.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) survey of plumbing service in Plano, households that have purchased and installed low-flow plumbing fixtures, can shave approximately 30 percent off of their indoor water use. This savings additionally correlates into a substantial savings on your monthly water, sewer and energy bills.

In Arizona, roughly 25 percent of the water supply is for municipal use, with most of this being directed towards its 6,626,624 residents. According to Arizona’s Department of Water Resources each resident uses roughly 100 gallons per day. That means we’re using 662,622,400 gallons per day! Shocking, isn’t it? For more information on Arizona’s water conservation efforts, please click here.

Over the past few years, installing low-flow plumbing fixtures has become increasingly popular, as they regulate the amount of water being dispensed when a faucet is turned on or when a toilet is flushed. Take for example, shower head adapters that allow you to detect exactly when your shower is ready, without the need to waste water. These shower heads cut flow to a trickle once your shower’s water is warm.

Install Low-Flow Plumbing FixturesWhile installing low-flow shower heads and faucets may be relatively easy for any DIY homeowner, there are other plumbing upgrades including replacing your toilet, which should be left to the professionals at A-Peoria Plumbing. If you would like assistance in selecting the best low-flow plumbing fixtures in order to conserve Arizona’s water for future generations, please feel free to contact us at (623) 979-7223.

Getting Your Ducts In A Row

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Air DuctAir ducts are utilized to distribute conditioned air throughout the house but in some homes, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. This can result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.

So what are some of the tell-tale signs that you may have duct issues? Here’s a few symptoms:

  • you have high summer and winter utility bills
  • you have rooms that are difficult to heat and cool
  • you have stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
  • your ducts are located in an attic, crawlspace, or the garage
  • you find tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system

If you have one or more of these issues it may be time to have your ducts sealed. Duct sealing can make your home more comfortable, energy efficient, and safer as well as save you money. Frisco Air Duct Cleaning provides expert services with duct repair, cleaning and replacing.

While working on your ducts it is important that you first make sure that you don’t have asbestos insulation. If you don’t check for that first, you could spread hazardous material through the air that you can breathe in. It can have serious negative health effects. Make sure that you stay safe and that you make sure asbestos is not present before starting to work. You can contact the original owner of the home, or the company in charge of building it. If it is present then there are professionals that can help you deal with this safely.

Because ducts are often concealed in walls, ceiling, attics, and basements, you may want to consider hiring a professional HVAC repairman. But there are things that you can do to improve duct performance in your house.

If you choose to take on duct sealing as a do-it-yourself project, make sure you use mastic sealant or metal tape as sealant. Be sure to insulate all the ducts that you can access. Do not use duct tape, as it will not last as long as the suggested sealant. The connections at vents and registers are common locations for leaks so make sure the are well-sealed.

If you would like to have your ducts cleaned or inspected, be sure to call the experts at A-Peoria today.

Turning Your Home Heating System on for the First Time This Season

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

We just had a cold front and it might not be our last before spring. If you haven’t turned on your home heating system in something like eight or nine months, which most of us haven’t, you may find its time to have a repairman come out for a quick servicing before your entire family arrives for the holidays. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when turning on your heater for the first time of the season:

A little odor is normal. Your heater is simply just burning off leftover dust that has been accumulating in the past months. You can prevent this by wiping down the furnace before turning it on. However, if the odor persists, check to make sure all the vents in your home are open. If several of the rooms are closed off, this can cause heat to build up in your furnace. Also, try changing the filter, as it may be clogged or dirty. If the smell continues, it may be time to call a repairman.

If the heater is on and the thermostat is set to the desirable temperature, and your home just doesn’t seem to be warming up, turn your unit off. A running heater can emit poisonous carbon monoxide gases into your home that can make you and your family sick. Also, allowing your heater to run means a higher utility bill for you and lower energy efficiency. In this situation, it’s best to call a trusted repair service.

If you are having trouble with your home heating system, give the folks at A-Peoria Plumbing a call. They offer 24 Hour Emergency Service, and will respond immediately to ensure you and your family are safe and comfortable.

SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, FROM A-PEORIA PLUMBING!

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) – Twenty-eight people, including many children, got carbon monoxide poisoning Saturday because of a gas leak at a Flagstaff church lodge.

Flagstaff fire Battalion Chief Bob Orrill says firefighters were called to the lodge at about 8:30 a.m. and found that 28 people were experiencing symptoms including nausea, dizziness, headaches and stomach aches.

He says many of them were younger than 16.

Flagstaff Medical Center spokeswoman Starla Collins says no one has had to be admitted to the hospital and that it appears everyone will be fine.

Orrill says the problem likely was caused after someone at the lodge cranked up the heater to 90 degrees, causing it to run all night, and that the heater had dirty air filters that were choking the system.

A furnace filter is crucial to the operation of any heating system. It traps most airborne debris while allowing a continual airflow that moves heated air through the house. A variety of furnace filter problems are possible unless the homeowner properly maintains the system.

Almost all types of appliances can cause hazards, but those such as oil furnaces that burn fuel for heating and cooking can be especially dangerous to your health. Most oil furnaces are safe, but sometimes they can produce gases that can be dangerous and even fatal. Oil furnaces can be a source of carbon monoxide gas. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless and deadly poisonous.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 200 deaths occur annually in the United States because of pollutants from indoor combustion devices. Carbon monoxide is invisible and has no odor. An entire family can be poisoned by CO without being aware of its presence.

Carbon monoxide reduces the ability of blood to carry oxygen. Red blood cells absorb CO faster than they do oxygen, so CO can replace oxygen in the red blood cells, preventing oxygen from reaching body tissues and thus damaging the tissues.

Breathing high doses of carbon monoxide can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, a gagging sensation, vomiting, chest pain, loss of consciousness and, finally, death. CO poisoning can affect both people and animals. Infants and people with cardiac, respiratory or blood disorders are most susceptible.
