5 Types of Plumbing Pipes Used in Homes
To have a better understanding of your plumbing system, let’s explore the various types of pipes used in homes.
- PEX Pipes
As one of the more popular choices, a PEX pipe is a cross-linked polyethylene pipe used to supply water. The PEX pipe comes with two supply links: red for hot, blue for cold. Many people gravitate to PEX piping because of its flexibility when being placed throughout the walls, ceilings, crawlspaces, basement, and more. PEX piping is also inexpensive and cuts easily.
- PVC Pipes
PVC pipes, also known as polyvinyl chloride pipes, are commonly used for drainage and plumbing. PVC pipes are typically lightweight and easier to use than the standard galvanized steel pipe. However, these pipes cannot be disconnected and must be cut. PVC pipes are also known to deteriorate in sunlight. If you need assistance with a damaged PVC pipe, book an appointment with our team. Our licensed plumbers offer water and sewer line installation and repair services to homes.
- Copper Pipes
Copper pipes, also known as rigid copper pipes, are intended to supply water throughout your home. Contrary to its rigid exterior, copper pipes can be easily cut with a special copper tube cutter or hacksaw and handle extreme pressure well. These pipes are easy to recycle and may even have a monetary value. However, copper pipes can be more expensive than standard piping and are more susceptible to pinhole leaks and corrosion.
- ABS Pipes
ABS pipes, or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene pipes, are commonly used for plumbing and drainage. ABS pipes are much like PVC pipes: inexpensive, lightweight, and will never corrode. However, ABS pipes are black, stronger than PVC pipes, and slightly softer. These types of pipes work well in cold temperatures but can warp if exposed to direct sunlight.
- Galvanized Steel Pipes
Typically found in older homes, galvanized steel pipes are primarily used for water supply, gas supply, and drainage. Although galvanized steel pipes are extremely strong, they’re no longer commonly used. This is because galvanized steel pipes are known for corrosions and, over time, can block water flow. Galvanized steel pipes can even pass lead into the water supply.

3 Ordinary Water Heater Problems
One of the worst experiences is having to take a cold shower during the winter season. Emergency water heater and plumbing problems can happen at any moment. If not addressed right away, these water heater problems can lead to extensive damage. It’s important to become familiar with the signs of water heater problems! Here are three common water heater issues and how to fix them.
- Not Enough Hot Water
You may experience inadequate hot water if you live in a household with a lot of people. When too many people are running water in your home, the water heater struggles to produce a sufficient supply of warm water. An easy way to resolve this issue is to adjust the temperature dial on your heater. Then wait thirty minutes for the water to get hot.If your hot water doesn’t improve after making this adjustment, contact an emergency plumbing technician right away. Inadequate hot water can be caused by many things. You could have a wiring issue or a malfunctioning component. Your water heater may simply need draining. Whatever the case may be, the best way to tackle your water heater problem is to contact an HVAC professional.
- Water Temperature Variations
Is your water temperature either scalding hot or icy cold and no in-between? If you’re experiencing a drastic fluctuation in water temperature, especially when washing the dishes or taking a shower, this could be a sign of a bigger water heater problem. Before calling an HVAC professional, check the thermostat on the side of your water heater to ensure it’s set to the right water temperature.
Typically, unusual water temperature spikes are the result of a thermostat malfunction or broken heating component. Your water heater may even be too small for your home.
- Water Heater Leaks
A leak is a serious indicator that you have a water heater problem. Water heater leaks can cause major damage to your system and floor. Water heater leaks can stem from a loose screw or pipe connection. If you notice substantial leaks at the bottom of your water heater, contact a technician right away!

No matter how old or new your air conditioner is, we have the expertise and the tools to effectively diagnose and repair the situation.
4 Signs That Indicate It’s Time to Perform an Air Conditioner Repair
If your air conditioning system needs repair—you’ll start to notice some signs. Let’s take a look at four primary signs that indicate it’s time to schedule an emergency air conditioner repair appointment with a licensed technician.
- Warm Air
If you notice lukewarm air coming from your vents, there may be something wrong with your air conditioning system. Warm air can be an indicator of a variety of AC malfunctions: duct leakage, condenser issues, component failure, and even a leaking or low refrigerant.
- Poor Airflow
If you’re experiencing poor airflow from your air conditioning system, this may be the result of a fan malfunction. An air conditioner’s fan pushes cool air through the ductwork that spread throughout your home. A malfunctioning fan can be the cause of anywhere from dirty air filters to a bad blower motor or faulty fan control board.
Do you have funky smells from your air vents? A foul smell from your air conditioning system can be the result of mold growth, burned-out wire insulation, and pest infiltration.
- Weird Sounds
If you’re experiencing an unusual grinding, screeching, or banging noise from your air conditioning system—this is a sure sign something’s wrong. This can be the result of a variety of malfunctions: clogged debris, broken system components, and loose belts. Contact an HVAC professional right away to avoid extensive system damage.

4 Ordinary Problems With Gas Furnaces
Are you having problems with your gas furnace? Whether you have an ordinary gas heater or a powerful one, mishaps happen all the time that put your heating in jeopardy. Let’s take a look at four ordinary furnace problems so that you can take appropriate measures and get your furnace repair right away.
- Frequent Heating Cycles
Are you experiencing frequent short cycling? This is when your gas furnace cycles on and off excessively. Short cycling is a definite indicator something’s wrong with your gas furnace. This problem usually stems from a faulty thermostat, dirty filters, or blocked exhaust vent. Cut down on energy costs and avoid additional damage to your furnace. Contact an HVAC professional right away.
- Weird Noises
Strange banging, squealing, popping, or humming noises is another sign something’s wrong with your air conditioning system. Weird noises coming from your systems could be the result of dirty filters, loose ductwork or equipment, blower motor failure, broken capacitor, or other heating component failures.
- Blown Out Pilot Light
Pilot lights are a critical aspect of your furnace system and can pose a safety hazard if they go out. Typically pilot lights are an easy fix: simply relight your pilot light. Look for instruction on how to relight the pilot light somewhere on your furnace system.If you go to relight your pilot light and it still doesn’t work, this is when you’ll need to contact a certified professional right away.
- Malfunctioning Electronic Ignition System
Most modern furnaces rely on electronic components instead of a standing pilot to spark the gas burners. These electronic ignitions have two primary types: a hot-surface ignition or an intermittent pilot.If you’re experiencing a problem with your electronic ignition, this could indicate a variety of issues: an overactive blower, frequent short cycling, dirty filters, or gas/power line leakage. Some of these instances can be fixed easily. Others will definitely require an HVAC professional to repair.
