  • Q:IS UPGRADING TO ENERGY-EFFICIENT EQUIPMENT WORTH IT?

    A:We certainly think so! Plumbing and cooling units that are more energy efficient tend to last longer, require fewer repairs, and save you money on your monthly bills. Some people are scared off by the initial cost of installation – but keep in mind that the investment will ultimately cost you less in the long run!

  • Q:WHAT IS A SEER RATING?

    A:The SEER (Season Energy Efficiency Rating) is a unit of measurement to rank the energy efficiency of a given product. It indicates the amount of cooling your system will deliver per dollar spent on electricity. A higher SEER rating indicates a more efficient unit.

  • Q:HOW IMPORTANT IS PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE? AND HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MAINTENANCE SERVICE?

    A:At Hi-Tech Plumbing & Air, we strongly believe that routine preventative maintenance is the key to a strong and effective system – that goes for plumbing and cooling systems. Routine maintenance can catch problems early on, before they become huge headaches that require a significant amount of work and money to repair. Plus, a well-maintained unit will last longer than one that is not treated with the same care. Keeping your systems in good shape can actually save you money in the long run. We recommend scheduling preventative maintenance at least twice per year to ensure peak performance.

  • Q:I SUSPECT THERE’S A LEAK SOMEWHERE IN MY HOME/BUSINESS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

    A:The first thing you should do is call in the experts. Only a trained professional will know how to properly detect a leak, should there be one on your property. It is a good idea to make notes of any warning signs you notice, like inexplicably high bills or the sound of running or dripping water. These details can help your plumber detect a leak more quickly. At Hi-Tech Plumbing & Air, we use advanced equipment to find the source of leaks and determine the best way to fix them. We will always offer the best and most cost-effective solution to resolve your leak.

  • Q:I’M HAVING A PLUMBING PROBLEM BUT I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S AN EMERGENCY. WHAT IS CONSIDERED TO BE A PLUMBING EMERGENCY?

    A:We consider plumbing emergencies to be any problems that severely impact your daily activities, threaten to significantly damage your property, and require immediate attention. Common plumbing emergencies include backflow, slab leaks, burst pipes, and leaking or damaged water heaters, among others. Whenever you are unsure of what to do about a plumbing problem, don’t hesitate to call our team. We will listen closely to your situation and determine the best course of action. If you do have a significant emergency, we can be there as soon as possible to address it.

  • Q:HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY AIR FILTER?

    A:The air filter on your air conditioner is an extremely important component – it keeps your system and your ducts clean and ensures that the system runs efficiently. For optimal conditions, we recommend changing out disposal filters once a month. Washable filters should also be cleaned once a month.

  • Q:HOW DO I SELECT THE RIGHT COOLING UNIT FOR MY HOME?

    A:We understand that selecting the right air conditioner is a difficult decision for home and business owners. Without any formal plumbing or air conditioning experience, you may not know how to pick a unit that will effectively meet your needs. The Hi-Tech Plumbing & Air team can perform an in-person load analysis to determine how large or powerful your air conditioner should be.

  • Q:WHAT IS HYDROJETTING?

    A:Hydrojetting is a powerful method of unclogging drains and removing blockages from pipes. Pipes that are particularly backed up and dirty benefit from hydrojetting, which involves a long tube that shoots water at high pressure into your pipes. This powerful stream of water effectively removes debris that is causing a clog.
