September is Preparedness Month
Most Cincinnati homeowners like feeling “ahead of the curve.” Life is busy, sometimes leaving us feeling unprepared. Apollo Home can help with tankless hot water heaters, sump pumps and drain clearing. Call us and we’ll help you prepare for whatever might come your way.
Why Tankless Hot Water Heaters?
If you haven’t heard of these, we can’t wait to tell you! A traditional water heater includes a large storage tank. You’ve probably seen it in your mechanicals room next to the furnace. When tank hot water heaters constantly heat and store hot water, three things happen.
- Heat loss occurs, costing you money to heat the water twice.
- You run the risk of running out of hot water if showers and appliances run too close to together. If you bathe all the kids, the tank may run out of water in the middle of your shower. No fun!
- You pay to heat water while it sits.
Tankless hot water heaters eliminate these concerns. Available in gas or electric versions, tankless hot water heaters don’t store water. Think of it as hot water on-demand. No expense to heat water until you need it.
This feature is incredibly energy-efficient, using approximately 22 percent less energy than traditional storage-type hot water heaters. Also, because there’s no storage tank, the hot water keeps flowing!
If you plan to host guests this holiday season, this can ease the “getting ready” timetable. Bonus – it frees up storage space. Tankless hot water heaters can be wall-mounted. Larger homes may choose to install one on each floor. Because of their compact space, they can be installed near the point of use.
Sump Pumps Save the Day
Remember the Ohio Flood this past year? Prepare for fall storms with a backup sump pump for your home. If you’ve invested in a finished basement, this is a necessity. Don’t risk your living space and possessions. Get a backup sump pump instead. Call us to install this tangible peace of mind!
Drain Clearing Reduces Drain Backups and Other Headaches
Apollo Home offers both drain clearing and drain cleaning. What’s the difference? Drain clearing uses a snaking tool to specifically target a local blockage. An Apollo Home plumber will puncture the blockage to allow water to flow through your system.
Drain cleaning shoots pressurized water into the drain system to fully clean out the pipes. A camera may be used for a thorough inspection. When both services are used together, debris is swept from the entire drain.
If you have trees with a shallow root system or have moved into an older home, call us for an inspection. We can help you prevent costly repairs.
