Why Use Natural Gas in My Home?

Monday, May 6th, 2019

sunny-plumbersEvery now and then we like to remind homeowners why it is so important to use natural gas safely in their homes, and why all natural gas piping services in Phoenix, AZ, must be handled by skilled, trained professionals.

In today’s post, however, we want to cover why it is that you might choose to use natural gas in your home, period! Natural gas is an incredible resource, and not just in those areas where the frigid winter temperatures demand regular, consistent heating—a concern that we really don’t have around here.

Before we get into that, of course, we do want to remind you one last time—if you didn’t click that link above to read our previous post—that natural gas can be dangerous if it is not distributed throughout your home and used properly. You won’t have to worry about that when you work with a Sunny Plumber, though.

Why You Should Have a Sump Pump Installed

Monday, March 11th, 2019

sunny-plumbersArizona is obviously not known for being a particularly wet state. We don’t get a whole lot of snow that can melt rapidly and lead to flooding. So why worry about water collecting in the lowest levels of our home? Well, because we willingly bring water into our homes through our plumbing systems, right? And we do get some rain. And, frankly, you just never know when something is going to go wrong. A dry climate doesn’t mean that you should leave your home vulnerable.

That is why we strongly recommend the installation of a sump pump in Maricopa, AZ. With a sump pump, you can protect your home from the problems caused by water damage, which can extend well beyond the actual water damage itself! The best part is that you don’t even have to think about it. But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves. So let’s dive in, take a closer look at sump pumps, and get your home protected.

Use Natural Gas Safely in Your Home

Monday, January 14th, 2019

sunny-plumbersThere are a lot of different resources available to homeowners these days. Easily one of the greatest that we have at our disposal is natural gas. Why is natural gas so great? What are the benefits that it has to offer? Well, consider this: Natural gas is a mostly domestic product. That means that it is not subject to unforeseen pricing fluctuations in foreign markets, which in turn means that it is generally quite stable and affordable in price.

Not only that, but natural gas can be used for a lot of different applications in the house, from fueling heaters to stoves/ovens and water heaters, too. Perhaps the greatest benefit is that, unlike oil or propane, natural gas does not need to be delivered to your home nor does it need to be stored on-site. It is instead piped directly to your home via natural gas piping and a gas line in Phoenix, AZ. And you definitely need a skilled, trained professional to install that gas piping.

And you know what? They would be right. There are a lot of different types of leaks, of course, but they all boil down to the same trouble—you cannot keep water in the pipes or fixtures where they belong!

Water Line Problems? Let Us Replace It!

Monday, August 27th, 2018

sunny-plumbersOne of the most basic functions of any plumbing system, perhaps the most basic function, is to bring potable water into businesses and homes. Sure, there are a lot of factors to consider, such as the heating of water, water drainage, and so on, but there wouldn’t be a need for a plumbing system without getting that water into the house/commercial property in the first place.

Why are we explaining something that is so obvious? To emphasize just how important your main water line is. Without your main water line, you wouldn’t have access to the potable water that you need to cook, clean, and bathe with. Unfortunately, even if you have a main water line in place (and we’re comfortable in assuming that you do), it is not going to last forever. Even something as relatively simple as a pipe is going to degrade over time, and eventually you’ll need a water line replacement in Phoenix, AZ. Call The Sunny Plumber Phoenix when you do.
