What happens when Gundlach's re-pipes my home?
After the plumbing is finished it will be inspected by the city or county building department. Then our drywall contractor comes in and patches and textures all of the holes that were put in the walls to accommodate the new piping. All you have left to do is a little painting.
Can a tankless water heater save me money?
What is the best way to filter the water in my home?
If you want to filter your water for the entire home we recommend a whole house filtration system that is auto back–flushing. This provides good tasting and healthy drinking water at every faucet in the home but does not soften the water. If you wish to have soft water a good quality softener would be required up stream of the filter. When selecting any filtration or water softening equipment be sure that it is NSF/ANSI 44 certified. Any water softening system that does not carry this label is not up to current building code and will reduce the available water pressure in the home. All of our WaterTechproducts that we offer are certified.
What is more important: SEER or EER rating?
If you would like some more information the PG&E website has more on the subject.
Are there any rebates available for new air conditioning systems?
Does an air conditioning system need to have Freon added periodically?
If a technician says that your system is low on Freon, your follow–up question should be; “Did you find the leak?” Chances are, if it is a scam the tech will fumble and bumble around and start telling you that it can leak out the access ports etc. Your next question is “Weren’t there any caps on the ports?” It is competitors like these that give our industry a bad name.
How does the Free Trip or Diagnostic coupon work?
If you do not approve the flat rate repair cost you will be responsible for payment of the trip or diagnostic charges.
What is a "flat rate" repair?
We have discovered that most customers are not comfortable with the old “time and material” system. They were never sure what the bill would be, and didn’t think it was fair to pay extra for a less experienced or slower technician.
Under the flat rate system you are not charged extra to go pick up a part, or extra labor required because the technician didn’t have the correct parts or tools for the job. The flat rate system forces us to keep our technicians well supplied and trained. The more efficient we are as a service company, the more profitable we become. Many of our competitors on the old “time and material” system are more profitable when their people are poorly trained, poorly stocked and unorganized. We just didn’t think that would be fair to our customers. Do you?
