Water Heater FAQ: What’s “Standby Energy Loss”?

Monday, February 11th, 2019

sunny-techniciansHeating water for showering, cleaning up around the house, doing laundry, etc., is not exactly an “optional” task or a luxury. Most homeowners would define the practice more as a necessity or an expectation in their homes. That’s what makes the water heater in your residence such a vitally important appliance. Just because you need the hot water that your water heater puts out, however, doesn’t mean that you should accept a very high price tag attached to it.

Like any other system, different water heaters have different efficiency levels. We always recommend investing in the best efficiency rating that you can afford. That efficiency rating is not the only factor to consider when it comes to the overall efficiency of your water heater in Henderson, NV, though. You should also be aware of standby energy loss—what it is, what causes it, and what you can do to limit its occurrence. Read on, and let us know what questions you have.

3 Signs That It’s Time to Call a Plumber

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

logoWe all lead busy lives in this day and age. The fact of the matter is that the old adage about there not being enough time in the day is truer now than ever before. Ironically, as connected as we all are these days, it seems easier than ever to let certain issues slip through the cracks.  We’ve all got odds and ends that we’ve placed on the back burner in order to prioritize other responsibilities. If you ask us, though, your plumbing system is important enough to keep at the top of your priority list.

Sure, there are plenty of plumbing issues that you may encounter which will not necessarily cross the threshold into “emergency plumbing” territory. The fact that you do not need to get a plumber out to your home in the middle of the night does not mean that such problems should be left to fester,  though. In fact, the longer that they go unresolved, the more likely they are to develop into something approaching an emergency. Contact the Henderson plumbers that you can trust here at The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas to have your issues addressed promptly.

Tips for Preventing Clogged Drains

Monday, June 5th, 2017

plumber-clearing-tub-drainWhen thinking of a residential plumbing system, it is helpful to visualize the system as being composed of 2 sides. There is the supply side, in which water is brought into the house via the main water line and is distributed throughout the house to its many fixtures and appliances. Then there is the drainage side, which consists of the drain pipes and sewer line that are tasked with hastily and hygienically removing waste and waste water from one’s home.

If left alone, a clogged drain can even cause damage to the system at large. Here are a few tips for preventing clogged drains in your home.
