No one likes to think about buying a new heater in the middle of winter. It leaves your home without proper warmth and can be complicated by snow and other types of inclement weather.
Normally, you should wait until spring to replace an older heater, and if you need to do so now, it’s likely because you’re dealing with a significant breakdown. That means you need to move quickly to get a new heating system installed. But don’t let that need blind you to the steps you need to take to get the right system for your home.

The sewer line is arguably the most important part of your plumbing: carrying waste and wastewater out of your home and into the nearby civic sewer system. In and of itself, it’s no different from any other length of pipe, save that it’s large and buried in the ground beneath your yard.
That keeps it safer from wear and tear than most pipes, but when trouble does arise, it presents a thorny problem. How can you reach a pipe to repair a leak or a clog when the pipe itself is buried underground?

Clogged drains are a common occurrence, and sooner or later your household is likely to run into one. The go-to solution for such issues is to buy a chemical drain cleaner at the store, or perhaps go to the local home improvement center and purchase a plumbing snake.
In almost every instance that’s a huge mistake. Store-bought solutions rarely address the issue properly, and often force you to apply them again and again before the drain becomes clear. In most cases, if you can’t deal with the clog via a good old-fashioned plunger, it’s best to call in a professional plumber.

Winters tend to be cold and dry in Albuquerque, and that means your heating system needs to run reliably every day in order to keep your family warm and comfortable. That’s far more than a luxury in the colder months around here, and the last thing you need is a sudden loss of heating power just when the thermometer drops below freezing.
