Outside Faucet and Shower Installations
Outside faucets or spigots area a convenient way to water your lawn and garden, wash your car or set up the sprinkler for the kids. And outdoor showers are becoming more and more popular for pool owners and those that just love the outdoors! We can install a variety of outside plumbing fixtures so you can enjoy your outdoor living. We can also properly winterize them and get them ready for the cold winter months.
Keep your home running even in a power failure! Power outages can be a real problem in both summer and winter when you lose not only your heating or cooling, but your water too. And as we’ve seen after the last few big storms we’ve had, we can be without power for days at a time. Having a generator is an investment that can potentially save you thousands of dollars in possible damage if a storm hits and you are without electric for a prolonged period.
Depending on the size generator you decide on, you can power either just the essentials like heat and water, or go with a larger unit and include kitchen appliances, lights and air conditioning systems – you decide what’s most important to you.
Home generators are permanently installed outside your home (they look similar to a compressor for an air conditioning system) and most run on natural gas or propane. Having a permanent generator installed means you don’t need to worry about losing power – the generator will automatically come on when the power goes out (usually in about 15 to 30 seconds) and will stay on for as long as it’s needed, automatically turning itself off when the electric is restored.
Whether it’s a repair, addition or new construction our highly-trained plumbing technicians will help you choose the most cost-effective water heating system to fit your hot water needs, or service an existing system. We will help you select a hot water heater based on the different types of water heaters available and the fuel source you use. We make sure that your new hot water heater provides the hot water you need, while being energy efficient so you save money on fuel costs as well.
Conventional Storage Hot Water Heater
A conventional storage hot water heater typically has a reservoir of 20 to 80 gallons of hot water. It releases hot water from the top of the tank when the hot water tap is turned on, then replaces the hot water that is used with cold water which is released to the bottom of the tank where it is heated. Conventional storage hot water heaters use a variety of fuels including natural gas, propane, oil, or electricity.
With a Conventional Storage Hot Water Heater, the tank is constantly heating the water even if no hot water is being used. This is called standby heat loss which can lead to higher energy costs. However, we can install a hot water heater with a heavily insulated tank which can significantly reduce standby heat losses. However, only tankless hot water heaters operate without the issue of standby heat loss altogether.
On-demand (tankless or instantaneous) water heaters
On-Demand (tankless or instantaneous) water heaters provide hot water only as needed, typically at a rate of 2–5 gallons per minute.
These on-demand water heaters heat the water directly instead of using a holding or storage tank, meaning that you have a constant supply of hot water and don’t need to wait for a storage tank to fill up. When the hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit and is then heated.
Because they don’t use a storage tank, they don’t have the standby heat losses associated with storage water heaters making them much more energy efficient. Tankless hot water heaters can be 24%–34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters, and you can get even greater energy savings if you install a demand hot water heater at each hot water outlet – as much as 27%–50%!
Tankless coil and indirect Hot water heaters
Tankless coil and indirect water heaters are integrated water/space heating systems that use a home’s main heating system to heat water as well.
A tankless coil water heater uses a heat exchanger or heating coil that has been installed on your furnace or boiler. When the hot water tap is turned on, the water flows through the heat exchanger providing hot water as needed, much like an on-demand water heater.
An indirect hot water heater is a highly efficient method of heating your water even though they require a storage tank. An indirect hot water heater uses your furnace or boiler to heat a fluid that circulates through a heat exchanger in the storage tank. The water tank stores energy making the furnace have to turn on less often, which will save fuel. And, when an indirect water heater is used together with a high-efficiency boiler and well-insulated tank, it is the least expensive way of all to produce your hot water.
Solar Hot Water
Solar hot water technology can be used in any climate, and is a simple, reliable, and cost-effective way of harnessing the sun’s energy.
Solar water heaters – also called solar domestic hot water systems – are a highly cost-effective way to generate the hot water you use in your home and can save up to 50% of your hot water heating costs. These cost savings can help you realize the return on your investment in as little as three to five years!
Installing a solar hot water heater now will greatly reduce the amount of energy you use to heat your water making it one of the most effective ways to save money and reduce your “carbon footprint” at the same time. It will also add value to your home.
At Roberto Plumbing & Heating Inc. we install and service both well pumps and sump pumps for our customers in Ulster and Dutchess County and throughout the Hudson Valley.
Well Pump Installation and Service
When installing a new well pump, it’s important to be sure to select the correct size and type to insure you get the best water pressure possible. Available water pressure is measured in a gallons-per-minute calculation and it’s important to be sure there will be enough water pressure for peak water usage periods. The well pump forces water up from your well and stores the water until it’s needed in a pressure tank located inside the home.
Our HVAC technicians will determine the best solution for your well pump needs by analyzing several factors including the yield of the well itself as well as the water needs of your home or business. There are several types of well pump systems that we can install for you including shallow or deep-well pumps, jet pumps, submersible or reciprocating pumps, and constant pressure pumps.
Sump Pump Installation and Service
Just one inch of water in a basement flood can take hours to clean up and cause thousands of dollars in damage. A sump pump prevents flooding by removing water before the water can reach the basement floor level. As the water level rises it gets diverted into the sump hole where the pump forces it out through a pipe which leads the water outside and away from your home’s foundation. This will help you’re your basement dry and your belongings safe.
We can install a pedestal sump pump or a submersible sump pump. With the pedestal-style pump the motor is mounted above the sump hole making it easier to service, but less aesthetically pleasing. With the submersible style, the entire system is located inside the sump hole, which is specially sealed to prevent electrical problems.
Whether it’s a repair, addition or new construction our highly-trained plumbers and HVAC technicians will help you choose the best sump pump for your home or business.
