Monday, June 18th, 2018

logoWhen the time comes to install a water heater in a brand new home or to schedule a water heater replacement—either due to complete system failure or the desire for a better user experience—homeowners will generally choose between tank and tankless water heater models. When they’re doing their initial research (and you should be doing research before investing in a new water heater) homeowners quickly realize that tankless water heaters are more expensive. Not insignificantly so, either.

With this in mind, prospective customers often ask us if a tankless water heater is worth the money. The answer to this question is yes. The technology and benefits of a tankless water heater are reflected in the price. Does this mean that a tankless water heater, then, is the right option for every homeowner?

What You Can Do to Prevent Sewer Repairs

Monday, May 7th, 2018

sunny-plumbersOne of the last things that any homeowner wants to think about is a damaged sewer line. The sewer line is a part of your plumbing system that you have most likely developed an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality about. We understand that. Given its sole function of removing waste and wastewater from your property, it goes without saying that a sewer line is not really a glamorous part of your home. It is a necessary one, though.

So, while your sewer line may well be out of sight, it really should not be kept completely out of mind. Problems can develop with your sewer line, and no, not all of them can be avoided entirely. That being said, there are a few ways in which you can avoid the need for sewer repair in Phoenix. Contact The Sunny Plumber Phoenix the moment that you suspect there is a problem with your sewer line. We’ll figure out what’s wrong and have it fixed up as soon as possible.

All Plumbing Installations Require Professional Plumbers

Monday, April 9th, 2018

sunny-plumber-vanOne of the great benefits of owning your own property is that you really have final say in the decisions made about that property. You don’t need to clear every little project with a landlord, and you don’t need to worry about running afoul of your housing authority. Of course, this freedom should not be taken for granted, and it should not lead you to believe that you can just go ahead and take everything into your own hands.

When you need any plumbing installation in Phoenix, AZ completed, for instance, you are still going to need to hire a professional plumber to do the job. Yes, this can be any plumber of your own choosing, and you are not limited to the contractor that your landlord has a relationship with. You do need to find a professional plumber to handle the job, though, because a plumbing installation is simply never a DIY appropriate project. You can always trust The Sunny Plumber Phoenix with the job.
