Water heating is the second largest energy end use in homes, behind space heating and cooling. Although heating improves every year, do you know what you should before purchasing a new water heater? For example, what is the best type, make/model, size or even energy efficiency considerations? A.Johnson and team have the expertise to evaluate and determine the best hot water heater for your home.

Leaky toilets and faucets add up. For example, a major toilet leak wastes up to 800 cubic feet of water a day — which in some areas of the Capital District could cost up to $5.00 for water and $12.00 for sewer each day. Plus, a fast drip from a faucet wastes about 265 gallons a day — which in some municipalities would cost $0.40 for water and $0.92 for sewer per day. That’s over $40 a month! Repair leaky faucets and toilets promptly — do it yourself or call a plumber because these leaks cost money.

As homeowners pay attention to the quality of their home water, you may have questions about water purification and water softeners. In particular, many homes in the Capital District contain hard water. “Hard” refers to a measure of difficulty — how hard it is to form lather and suds — and to the hard mineral deposit left on fixtures. “Soft” water uses less soap and detergent to form lather and suds, and can make clothing and skin feel softer. Contact A.Johnson to learn how a water softener may improve the quality of your home water.

Clogged drains create problems. Many homeowners mistakenly believe that all-purpose liquid drain cleaner will do the trick, but these products are extremely corrosive. Acid-based drain cleaners harm all metal components of your plumbing system and may even remove the finish on drains! Instead try a plunger or snaking the drain. If those tactics do not work, call A.Johnson to help!

Roughly 60% of American homes routinely deal with below-ground wetness. And even more families deal with a flooded basement. Sump pumps reduce water and wetness in the basement and below ground areas by pumping water out of the area and away from your home. If you are thinking about installing a sump pump, then contact A.Johnson because we have the expertise and experience.

If you’re looking at this page for your first time, you are probably in the midst of a crisis of some kind. Most of the folks who seek us out for the first time do so because they don’t have a regular plumber and they have a problem that they can’t fix. Others contact us for renovations, but emergency calls are far more common, especially with our 24/7 Emergency Service.
