2 The New Water Heater Regulations: How Will the 2015 Efficiency Standard Changes Affect Your Home? As of April 15th this year, the DOE is changing national efficiency standards for water heaters nationwide. Manufacturers will stop selling current models, and our plumbers will only be able to install the newer models. What does that mean for homeowners? The New Regulations and Your Home Once the new regulations for water heater efficiency go into effect, manufacturers will only produce upgraded devices. You won t be able to find a direct replacement of your current water heater if it breaks. If you need water heater replacement after April, you ll have to make adjustments to your home in order to fit the new devices! Typically, the new water heater models cost up to 35% more and are 2 wider and taller (due to having more extensive insulation). Some homeowners will have to extend their access lines to fit the new models if your utility room or water heater closet is too small, you may even need to take out the entire wall! Plus, if your water heater breaks and you do need to research an upgrade, you ll be without hot water in the meantime. The experts at Cranney Home Services suggest that you install a new water heater before the deadline. Get a direct replacement before April, and you won t need to worry about the efficiency standards for another 10 years! If you see the warning signs of wear and tear on your current water heater model, consider investing in a replacement. Call for a consultation today. 5 Warning Signs of Water Heater Failure: Don t wait until your current water heater breaks, because if it happens after April 15th you ll be out of luck for a direct replacement! If you notice any of the following, it s time for water heater replacement. 1. Leaks from the Storage Tank 2. Visible Rust or Corrosion 3. Insufficiently Heated Water 4. Bad Odors from the Device 5. Past Warranty (older than 6 years) You can save money and time by performing your water heater replacement now rather than later when it becomes difficult and expensive. Call the water heater experts at Cranney Home Services today! PAGE: 1

5 Spring Sump Pump Check Avoid Basement Floods! Heavy Rains and Snow Melt Will Make Basement Flooding Likely, Are You Prepared? Many homeowners in Boston are familiar with what has come to be a yearly ritual: as the weather gets warmer, you discover your basement has become an indoor swimming pool over night! As snow melts, all of that water starts to flood your area drains and leak into your home. Plus, April showers can mean even more strain on older homes with in-ground windows that aren t properly sealed. If you don t already have a working sump pump, your own home could be at risk of basement flooding. A sump pump collects water in a small reservoir and then forces it out of your home using either electrical, battery or water powered energy. Every homeowner who has ever experienced a basement flood should call a professional to have a quality sump pump installed. In the event of a flood, your sump pump will save the day! But if your sump pump is in disrepair or simply isn t installed right, then your basement isn t protected from water damage. This year, Boston and North Shore areas were hit particularly hard with snow, and it isn t going to hang around long. Is your sump pump ready to handle all of that water? The Cranney home experts want to help you keep your home dry! ever need. From professional repair to replacement to back-up installation, we can have your home or business covered and give you total piece of mind. But there are some checks you can perform on your own to make sure you re ready for the spring, and we d like to outline them here: Test Your Sump Pump: How can you tell if your sump pump is operational before it has to handle a basement flood? You can test your sump pump yourself simply by lifting the plastic float on the device. If the motor runs, you re good to go! If not, call Cranney for repair. you think. For instance, if the power goes out during a storm, an electrical sump pump isn t going to work. If the battery dies in a battery powered pump, you might not even find out until it s too late! A water powered sump pump that is, a pump that is powered by the municipal water system in combination with a battery powered back-up is what we believe offers the best possible protection. So start spring off right by checking your sump pump and making sure you have the backup power that you need. Call the experts at Cranney to help you with professional sump pump services today!

7 Beware Old House Traps! These Obsolete Drain Features May Cause Recurring Plumbing Problems Do you live in an older home? You aren t alone most people in Massachusetts live in houses that were built prior to Old homes can be beautiful, but they re also more difficult to manage, particularly if your plumbing hasn t been updated since the home was built. Certain plumbing materials and parts are outdated and could cause messy and even hazardous issues in modern homes. Among the primary offenders when it comes to outdated plumbing is an old drain feature known as a house trap. Originally, house traps were designed to keep sewer gasses out of your home. Similar to how the p-trap beneath your sink holds water to block odors from escaping through the drain into your home, the house trap keeps some liquids in place in your main drain. However, with the most recent technology advancements for our drainage systems, the main purpose of house traps is obsolete. What s worse is that the house trap also causes blockages and makes it difficult to inspect the main line with a sewer camera These plumbing components should be removed and replaced by a professional. The 5 Warning Signs of Clogged House Traps If your home was build prior to 1989, you probably have house traps on your main sewer line. You may even be experiencing the issues associated with house traps already! Some signs that you have a clogged house trap include: 1. Sewer Odors in Your Living Areas 2. Multiple Plumbing Fixtures Out of Order 3. Frequent Toilet Back-Ups 4. Drains Leaving Standing Water 5. Back-Flow/Flooding in Your Basement A sewer system doesn t just keep your home clean it keeps your family safe from contagious diseases carried by wastewater and raw sewage. If you experience plumbing problems, don t wait! Get the solutions you need from Cranney Home Services today. But what are those solutions? How does Cranney fix old plumbing? As with anything, the first step is to show up with the proper tools. Our plumbing experts are highly trained in the most modern practices and stateof-the-art technology, and we bring all of that experience straight to your home with every job. If you have an old house trap that is causing issues for your plumbing, you ll need a plumber who can remove and replace that trap with a more modern device, namely a sewer clean-out. What is a Sewer Clean-Out? A sewer clean-out looks like a vertical, capped-off pipe extending from an existing line. They perform the same function as house traps (i.e. preventing sewer odors) but possess the three following advantages: Better Materials Whereas old house traps corrode over time, clean outs can be made with superior, PEX pipe materials that are immune to rust, erosion, and sediment build-up. Manual Checking A sewer clean-out can be manually checked to see if your main line is experiencing a clog: the above-ground cap should always be full of water. No More Drain Problems Drain cleaning might temporarily clear the clogs and restart your sewer line, but installing a sewer clean-out will solve your drain dilemmas for good! Don t live with recurring drain issues and old plumbing if your home was built before 1989, call the our professionals for a plumbing inspection now! PAGE: 6

8 5 Benefits of High Pressure Jetting Our Drains Put Up With a Lot How Can You Help Ease the Strain? Every year, build-up occurs in your sewer system and impacts the performance of your drains. Materials like oil, grease, residue, and sediment accumulate and restrict the flow capacity of your pipes. Over time, this means your clogs become more frequent and your appliances lead shorter lives. Drain snaking and rootering can help clear blockages, but these tools don t solve the root of the problem. The build-up lining the inside of your drains and restricting their diameter isn t addressed during simple drain clearing. Older plumbing is always going to be more susceptible to problems, which causes: Standing Water in Sinks Frequent Back-Ups Main Line Backflow Basement Flooding Odors in Your Living Areas Plumbing Fixtures Breaking If you (like most Massachusetts homeowners) live in a home built before 1989, poor drainage may have a chronic impact on the health of your home. But what if you could reverse years of build-up and corrosion with a single drain cleaning process? What if, rather than just clear drains, you could restore them for better plumbing performance permanently? You don t need sewer repair or sewer replacement what you need is called high water pressure jetting. What Is High Water Pressure Jetting? The high water pressure jetting (AKA hydrojetting ) process involves sending a powerful blast of water through your pipe lines to remove scale and residue build-up. The process puts the latest and greatest technology in the plumbing industry to work for your drains. Here are 5 benefits of hydrojetting you can expect when you work with us: 1. More Permanent Eliminate those recurring clogs! Get a healthier home with smoother plumbing in just one short procedure. 2. Less Expensive Sewer repair and replacement can be costly, and pipe excavation can be destructive to your yard and landscaping. With hydrojetting, you can avoid high prices and unnecessary damage. But not every plumber offers this advanced solution! % Safe and Effective Hydrojetting is not only friendly to your plumbing, it s also completely safe for the environment. It s an energy efficient and clean fix! 4. Better Results If you ve been struggling with recurring clogs, you can finally put them behind you with high water pressure jetting from the Cranney experts. 5. State-of-the-Art Plumbing All of our plumbers are licensed, certified, experienced, and well-trained to use hydrojetting properly so you experience all of its advantages. Get the best drain solution from the best experts in the field! Don t live with insufficient and unhealthy sewer performance for another day. Call the experts at Cranney Home Services today! PAGE: 7
