Why You Should Hire a Licensed Plumber

A plumbing problem is an upsetting experience. Most of us worry about the damage and expense associated with a leak or other issue, and that makes it tempting to think about doing repairs ourselves.

However, this is not a good strategy. Having plumbing services handled by a professional is a much better choice in the long run. There are several reasons why.

Qualifications

Plumbing looks very simple, but it is not. A licensed plumber in the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho area will know not just how to install or repair your plumbing features but also how to comply with local regulations and codes

. Peace of Mind

You might be able to patch together a repair today, but what happens if it fails while you're out of town? Affordable Service Albuquerque will make durable, lasting repairs that won't give you another breakdown just months or weeks later.

No one likes to wake up at 4am to the sound of running water, and they sure don't like to try to make the repairs at that time of night. Affordable Service Albuquerque is ready to respond any day, any time, to provide emergency plumbing services.

There are a few things you should always have access to, and one of those is a plumber.

Dumb Things People Do with Their Thermostat

Over 50% of your energy costs go towards heating and cooling your home. The first place to look is at how you use your thermostat. According to the experts in cooling and heating services that Albuquerque residents trust, knowing a few simple things could end up saving you a lot in the long-run.

Here are three things to consider when adjusting the temperature on your HVAC system.

#1 Don't Crank the Temperature Just to Make Things Go Faster

You walk in the house on a hot day and want cool air instantly. You crank the temperature down a few degrees thinking you will get cooler faster. You would be wrong.

Your HVAC system works at the same pace no matter what temperature you set. So, you aren't going to get cooler any faster if you lower the temperature. What will happen is that the HVAC will continue to run until it reaches that lower temperature. According to the experts here at Affordable Service Albuquerque, residents will see energy costs rise if they crank the temperature too often.

#2 Don't Leave the Temperature the Same All the Time

Many people set the temperature to a comfortable setting then forget about it. That's great when you are awake and moving around. But not so great when you are asleep or away from the house.

When you are asleep or away, there is no need to keep the temperature set to the same level as when you are awake and at home. It wastes energy, driving up your utility bill. Installing a programmable thermostat is the answer. Set it to turn on when you are waking up or coming back from work or school. Then set it to turn down the temperature when you are going to sleep or leaving the home.

#3 Don't Play with the Temperature

You set the temperature to 68 degrees but find yourself getting chilled. You turn it up to 70 degrees. Your spouse comes home and finds it too warm. It gets reset to 68 degrees. You find it too cold and set it back up. Up and down the temperature goes. Up and up goes your energy bill.

You get the most cost savings if you leave the temperature the same when you are at home and awake.

Don't let your energy bills get out of control. Find the heating and cooling services Albuquerque and Rio Rancho property owners trust. Call Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating and Cooling today at 505-891-8907.

Service agreements in the plumbing, heating and cooling business have become quite common. What exactly does a service agreement provide and why it is a good idea for homeowners?

At Affordable Service, we know that by providing great service, customers are happy to turn to us the next time they need help. But, that may be a twice-a-year need in order to start up or shut down your swamp cooler or furnace. And in today’s busy world, some customers may not recall who they had work on their heating or cooling system.

Affordable Service has earned the designation as a Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer, which entails performance to the manufacturer’s rigorous standards.

Across the country, there are thousands of HVAC companies, but only an estimated 5% of them earn a factory-authorized certification. The Carrier Corporation, one of the heating and cooling industry’s leaders, sets rigorous standards in professionalism, expertise, and efficiency for its dealers that earn this award.

The HVAC technicians at Affordable Service occasionally receive phone calls that reference hot or cold zones in their home or office. Before you call us for service, there are some easy, do-it-yourself options that you might consider.

When your toilet backs up, your drain is clogged, your water heater is leaking, or you need to re-pipe polybutylene pipes, call the Albuquerque plumbing company that’s been around for 32 years. Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric has served Albuquerque’s plumbing needs since 1986.

When you look at your monthly energy bill, consider that nearly 50% of the energy consumption is to provide heating and cooling, according to the Department of Energy. All the other energy uses (lights, appliances, TVs, etc) make up the rest.

Having a pipe break in your home isn’t just inconvenient, it can be an extremely expensive plumbing problem if water damage has occurred.

Your water heater may be perking along quite nicely, but there are hidden issues that you need to take very seriously. Some you might address yourself; some may need the help of the experts at Affordable Service Plumbing and HVAC.

In the southwest, water is a precious commodity, and responsible homeowners want to know what they can do to help conserve this resource! The city of Rio Rancho makes it easier for homeowners to do their part, by offering some great incentives! At Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating we like to inform our customers of some of these programs that can help them save money, and the environment!

Clean, fresh water is a limited and expensive resource. In New Mexico, and in other states throughout the southwest, great efforts are being made to raise awareness to the issue of water conservation, and many programs have been put in place to help homeowners, educators and public water suppliers. Recently, in California, a law was passed that would limit the amount of water that families and households are allowed to use each day, whether or not there is a drought.

New Mexico summers can make you lose your cool, literally. When our daytime temperatures reach the 90 degree mark, and especially when they tip over the 100 degree level, we really know the summer heat has arrived.
