Piping Material for Your House—Time to Replace It?

Monday, August 6th, 2018

pipe-decayStaten Island has a long history of habitation, and there are buildings here that stretch back centuries. The Billiou-Stillwell-Perine House, for example, was built in 1662!

You probably don’t live in a pre-Colonial house, but you may live in a house with a long history—and perhaps plumbing that’s a bit, uhm, historical as well. And not in the “history that must be preserved” kind of way. Unless you think your house can be registered as a National Historical Landmark, we strongly recommend you update its “vintage” water piping.

When Repairs Can No Longer Save Your Air Conditioner

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

old-air-conditionerHow long can a home air conditioning system last? Nobody can provide a definite number, but here’s one answer that’s certain: it won’t last forever. As much as we would all love to have an air conditioner that will never need to be replaced—“the last air conditioner you’ll ever need to buy!”—it doesn’t exist.

tankless-water-heaterThe water heater is a heating system in your home that goes to work every day of the year. It doesn’t matter if its 10°F outside or 100°F or any range between—you need hot water for daily chores. Cooking, cleaning, showering. Your water heater consumes the most energy of any heating system in your house, and it does it year-round.

That’s why we recommend you give careful consideration to your next water heater installation in Woodbridge, NY. No water heater lasts forever, and if your current one is over 15 years old or has started to fail to deliver the amount of hot water you expect, it’s time to plan for a new one. And why not make a big change from a standard storage tank water heater to a tankless water heater?

Need Fresh Air In a Stuffy Home This Winter? Try an ERV

Monday, December 11th, 2017

heating-cooling-vent-homeAny home can stay warm through the roughest winter thanks to the power of modern heating systems. But heating a home can also make it feel stuffy. This is often a complaint people have about gas furnaces, but it can happen with boilers and heat pumps as well. The obvious solution is to open up some windows—but that lets in blasts of cold air, leading to discomfort and making the heating system work extra hard trying to overcome it.

However, we propose another solution. One that allows you to vent out the stale and stuffy air in your house and replace it with fresh air from outside, but without having to open up the house to cold drafts and driving up your energy bills. And that solution is an ERV.
