Frozen Pipes: A Tricky Ordeal

December 4th, 2023

Close your eyes and imagine that one of your water lines gets frozen on a cold day. First, your water pressure slows to a trickle and then you’re dealing with a frozen pipe that will turn into a burst pipe when it thaws. The clock starts ticking and all of a sudden your entire day is ruined!

First, you can always stay calm by calling our team when you notice the signs of a frozen pipe. Since we don’t get extremely cold winters here in Tennessee, homes can sometimes lack insulation or the preparations that homes further north have, which makes them more susceptible to freezing. An exposed pipe or a crack in your insulation that leads to sub-freezing temperatures can cause some pretty serious issues for your home.

Here’s what you can do about a frozen pipe, and a few tips to mitigate the issue. And just remember, instead of searching online for “plumbers near me,” you can always just call our team!

How to Budget for Your Next Water Heater

Your Furnace Options

September 25th, 2023

Temperatures are finally starting to lower, which means we need to be prepared for the big winter chill. Here in Tennessee, winters can still be cold even if they’re more mild than our northern neighbors. A furnace is a great choice for many of our customers, but they’re not a “one-size-fits-all” kind of solution.

In fact, many people don’t know that there are multiple kinds of furnaces. Electric furnaces are great at heating your home only using electricity. Gas furnaces use powerful combustion with natural gas to provide heat for your home throughout the winter. Both of these systems work well, but they’re better for certain homeowners and worse for others.

Our blog post today will take a deep dive into furnace installations in Franklin. We’ll talk about how they operate, the differences between gas and electric systems, and why these details matter.
