Every Spring the Capital Region has it’s fair share of heavy rain showers. With this heavy rain, may come problems such as a flooded basement, mold growth, musty smells, and damage to possessions. So what can you do? Here are some helpful tips to help you keep your basement dry and prevent future moisture problems!

· Ensure your sump-pump is in good working order – have it serviced by a licensed and reputable plumber annually.

· Consider having a licensed plumber install a back-up sump pump in your basement if you are prone to flooding and you are in an area where power outages are frequent. We have several options for you to pick from.

· To reduce humidity levels in your home, have a professional add a dehumidifier to your HVAC system.

· Look for ways to divert rainwater away from your home—extend rain gutter down-spouts away from home and make sure the grade of your yard surfaces slope away from your home.

· Make sure rain gutters are clean and unobstructed.

Stop Small Drips from Becoming Big Leaks

Dripping Faucet, Stop LeaksEven the smallest of drips around your home or office needs to be repaired as soon as possible. In fact, a slow drip can waste 15 to 20 gallons of water a day which over time becomes costly!   Although some leaks are easy to fix, others require a professional plumber.  Most leaks can be heard or seen, but some are a bit more difficult to detect.

Often homeowners don’t realize they have a leak until they receive a large water bill.  Your water meter might be your most useful tool in identifying water leaks on your property. When monitored properly, you will see fluctuations in your current water usage. Contact your local plumber to learn more about leak detection

Go green and save money with low-flow toilets

Did you know that every time you flush your outdated toilet, you’re literally flushing your hard earned money down the drain? With the average person flushing the toilet six times a day that can really add up! If you live in the Albany Capital Region and you’re in the market for installing a new energy saver toilet, you should call us and inquire about a high-efficiency, environmentally friendly, low-flow toilet.

Traditional toilets use approximately 3.5 to 7 gallons of water per flush. For the average family, that can equate to hundreds of gallons of water every day, However, high-efficiency, low-flow toilets use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush (with some as little as 1.28). This means that a low-flow toilet can save your household up to 16,500 gallons of water in just one year – conserving not only water, but money as well.
Aside from your sprinkler system, the average household toilet uses more water than any other fixture inside or outside your home.  However, by installing low-flow toilets you can cut over $90 from your average annual water bill. Additionally, some low-flow toilets may qualify you for a tax rebate under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 which provides a tax credit to help offset the costs of making energy efficiency improvements to your home.

Benefits of a Tankless Hot Water Heater

Hot Water Heater, Plumbing, Albany NYDid you know that hot water heaters are one of the top five appliances that use the most energy in your home? For those in the Northeast region of the U.S., a standard 50-gallon electric hot water heater typically costs as much as $800 per year to run. The biggest issue with tank-style hot water heaters is that they use a lot of energy to keep water heated, even when you’re not using it. This can literally add up to hundreds of wasted dollars each year.

Fortunately, there is an alternative – tankless hot water heaters. Tankless hot water heaters are a great solution for replacing costly tank-style heaters because they heat water without using a storage tank, which helps to avoid standby heat loss. (Standby loss is the energy wasted to maintain a specific temperature within the tank). The basic premise behind a tankless heater is that it only heats water when you need it, which can save you 30% or more on your energy bills.

The Dangers of Indoor Air Pollution

Take a deep breath – do you feel the toxins, pollutants, and dirt that exist in the indoor air of your home? Probably not, but they exist.

In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency released a statement that “indoor air pollution is one of our biggest environmental health threats … bigger than toxic wastes sites and the destruction of the ozone layer.”

Because people spend 90% of their time indoors, it’s important to maintain a clean air system throughout your entire home. You wouldn’t subject your family to toxins and pollutants that you can touch and feel – why should the air in your home be any different?

The Environmental Benefits of a Garbage Disposal

Each year in the United States, nearly 19 million tons of food waste is trucked to landfills. Once there, it quickly decomposes and produces methane, an environmentally harmful greenhouse gas at least 21 times more potent than CO2.

While composting provides one approach to tackling America’s food waste management challenge, it isn’t always practical for today’s busy lifestyle.



Enter InSinkErator®. Our food waste disposers provide a convenient and environmentally friendly alternative to transporting leftovers to landfills. Plus, capable wastewater treatment plants can even recycle food scraps into energy and fertilizer.

Durable. Practical. And environmentally responsible. A recent Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of common ways to dispose of food scraps reported that disposers can help reduce globalwarming potential vs. landfills and in some cases, can even aid in energy production at the wastewater treatment plant.
