When to Replace Your Hot Water Heater

You rely on your home’s hot water heater for a lot – cooking, cleaning, dishwashing, laundry, and personal hygiene – so when it fails, it can cause a major disruption to your household routine. Many homeowners don’t know there’s anything amiss with their hot water heater until it fails, and that can be an inconvenient, expensive venture. But if you know the signs of hot water heater failure, you can get ahead of it – and keep the hot water flowing in your home.

The Angie’s List website offers four signs you should watch out for:

  • Age of Water Heater: Knowing the age of your water heater is important. If you’re not sure, you can generally check by the equipment’s serial number on the manufacturer’s website. Or, your plumbing technician will be happy to help you. If you find that your water heater is 10 years old or more, it’s likely time to consider a replacement. When hot water heaters reach this age, the potential for leaks becomes much greater – and that can cause extensive damage to your home.
  • Dirty Water: Noticing rust when you run your hot water? This could be a good sign that your water heater tank is rusting on the inside. If you’re concerned it might be your pipes, try draining a few buckets of water directly from the heater. If it’s still rusty, then you likely need to replace your hot water heater soon.
  • Noisy Operation: Water naturally has minerals and other sedimentary particles that will, over time, gather in the bottom of your hot water heater tank. Heating the sediment will over time cause it to harden. The hardened layer of sediment can cause your hot water heater to lose efficiency, and cause wear and tear on the tank that can lead to leaks. The giveaway that you have a layer of sediment in your tank are banging or rumbling sounds during heat-up.
  • Moisture Around Tank: Moisture around the tank of your hot water heater can indicate a leak or a fracture. After checking other pipes, connections and fittings to make sure they’re not leaking, if you still notice water you probably need to replace your hot water heater.

Time to replace? Give Family Danz a call – we can help meet all your hot water heater needs.

Family Danz is ready to help you if you need a new water heater. We have many options available, and our expert plumbers can install your new system quickly, so you won’t have to worry about being without hot water in your home for long. Just give us a call at 518.427.8685 and we’ll help you explore your options and find the right hot water heater for your home and lifestyle needs.

Can Ductless Heating Help Your Home’s Efficiency?

If your home’s heating costs are on the rise this winter, yet your furnace is relatively new and in good shape, there may be other factors in your home that are causing inefficiency. It has been an extremely cold winter so far, and that undoubtedly means you’ve likely been struggling to keep your home as comfortable as you’d like. Did you know that ductless heating could help you stay comfortable and maintain better efficiency?

Even though it’s been around for some time, many people have never heard of ductless heating. The premise is simple – ductless systems use a heat pump to either heat your home or cool it, without the need for additional ductwork. So for situations where ductwork is either impractical or impossible, a ductless system can save the day.

Where can I use ductless heating to improve my home’s energy efficiency?

If you install a ductless heating system in your home, that doesn’t mean you should stop using your furnace. The thing to remember is, ductless heating can provide very targeted heating to your home. That means, if you have a space in your home that’s been built on, such as an addition or sun porch, or a space that’s been renovated into living space, like a basement or attached garage.

Often, the house’s heating system can’t provide adequate warmth to these spaces, and the home’s HVAC system becomes unbalanced. This is why you may feel cold spots in your home, especially in those new or renovated spaces. Of course, your contractor can provide you with the best answers, but many times ductless heating can help restore the balance – resulting in better comfort and improved energy efficiency.

When you’re ready to learn more about how ductless heating can benefit your home, Family Danz Heating & Cooling can help. Simply give us a call at (518) 427-8685. We’ll tell you about the different options for ductless heating and cooling, and help you find the solution that best suits your needs.

No Ductwork? No Problem! Family Danz Offers Ductless Heating.

Do you have a room in your home that you’d like to keep warmer in the winter, but where ductwork might be an issue? Don’t despair – ductless heating for your home may just be the perfect solution. Ductless heating can be installed in places in your home where ductwork is either impossible or impractical, and provides a heating solution that makes those spaces more comfortable.

You may be wondering what, exactly, what ductless heating is.

A ductless heating system provides highly efficient heating designed to keep areas without ductwork as comfortable as those with. Ductless systems provide targeted heating to a specific, single space, but there are multi-unit options available, too. Ductless systems are not only used for heating; they can also help to balance out the climate of your home, and help you increase your current system’s energy efficiency.

Another benefit of ductless heating is how easily they’re installed and how unobtrusive they are. They mount directly onto the wall or ceiling, and blend well with most décor. They require no additional ductwork, and installation can be completed in just a few hours, with no patching or painting required. What’s more, ductless heating operates very quietly, so the only thing you’ll notice is the improved comfort level of your space.

There are many areas of your home that can benefit from ductless heating.

Ductless heating is perfect for areas in your home like converted attics, additions, finished basements, sunrooms and older homes. Outside of the home, there are some ideal commercial uses for ductless heating as well, such as storage rooms, kiosks and off-hours offices. When you choose to work with Family Danz, we’ll tell you about all of your options for ductless heating, and help you find the ideal solution for your needs.

What to Do When You Need Heating Repair in Your Albany Home

Colder weather will soon settle into the Capital District, and that means the heating system in your Albany home will soon be busy. If you’re concerned about the health of your heating system this winter, it could be time to call Family Danz. Often, there are warning signs that let you know you’re in for some heating repair services. If you’re on the lookout for them, you’ll know when an issue is about to arise – and take proactive measures. Most likely, trouble with your furnace or boiler started well before this heating season.

Here are some important questions to ask yourself if you have heating system concerns, as they can be signs you need heating repair in your Albany home:

  • Did you notice your heating bills were higher than normal last year? If you answered yes, it might mean your system was working harder than it should have been. Or, if you have an older heating system, it may simply be losing efficiency.
  • Did you notice some rooms were warmer, or colder, than others? If so, it may not necessarily mean you need heating repair in your Albany home. It may, however, require some balancing and adjustments to your ductwork, which is a job for your heating contractor.
  • Did you have your furnace maintained by an HVAC professional? If you answered no, you may have some problems. Heating maintenance helps ensure all parts are well-oiled, no minor issues exist, and filters are clean.
  • Did you notice knocking or pinging sounds when you started up your system? If you have a radiator system, these noises can be common, but shouldn’t be too loud. If your furnace is making loud noises, especially screeching, banging or grinding ones, then you likely need heating repair for your Albany home right away.
  • Did you notice a smell that wouldn’t go away when you started up your system? It’s normal for there to be a “basement-like,” musty smell when you first turn on your furnace. After all, it’s sat dormant for months. But if the smell lingers, you likely need a filter change. Of course, in the event of a burning odor, turn your furnace off right away and call your HVAC dealer. If you smell gas, leave your home immediately and call the fire department.

You should know, you can count on Family Danz to help when you need heating repair for your Albany home. Our highly skilled technicians can help you, no matter what your heating concerns may be. Your comfort and safety are always our number one priority, and we always treat you like family.
