Plumbing is an extremely important function in your home and therefore the decision to hire a plumber should never be taken lightly. In order to ensure you’re choosing a plumber you can trust to do the job, and to do it right, be mindful of the following criteria:

 

Are they licensed and insured?

To protect yourself and your homes, these are two basic qualifications you don’t want to skip.

 

How long have they been in business?

Long standing companies come with a proven track record of success and highly trained and experienced plumbers.

 

Did they provide an estimate?

A quality plumber should be able to give you a price before they start. Likewise, if their estimate seems unusually low in relation to other quotes you received their might be prices that come later they aren’t telling you about.

 

Is there work guaranteed?

You should never hire a plumber that does not guarantee their work and the parts they use, at least for a one year minimum.

 

Have they been reviewed?

Plumbers with a good reputation likely come with a handful of positive reviews. If the plumber is not being directly referred by a family member or friend, consider scanning sites like Facebook to see what past customers have to say about their service.

To ensure safe and proper use of the plumbing fixtures in your home, it’s important to be aware of and stay up-to-date with typical usage protocol. Your water heater, for one, is a valuable system in your home because it keeps your bath water warm throughout these long and cold Minnesota winters.

On the other hand, a water heater could cause unnecessary dangers if used incorrectly. Stay on top of safe habits with this quick Do’s & Don’ts guide:

Do keep the hot water temperature set at a maximum of 120 degrees.
Do flush out your hot water heater and refill it at least once annually.
Do test safety relief valve at least once annually to make sure it is working properly.

Don’t set the hot water heater above 120 degrees for any reason.
Don’t leave children unattended near the hot water heater.
Don’t keep combustible or flammable materials within two feet of your hot water heater.

At Dean’s Professional Plumbing, Heating, Drains & Air we repair, replace and install all water heaters. Visit our website for more information or call us today at 612.424.0982.

Did you know that a furnace is only built to last between 14 to 20 years? Pushing it past its very last days will likely leave you with an unnecessary breakdown.

In order to keep your furnace at full capacity and be properly prepared when it’s time for a new one you’ll want to do two main things:

1. Have it checked once a year, every year. Furnace tune-ups should be performed by a professional each fall to ensure your system will make it through the heating season. You can also get minor repair needs and adjustments done before you need to rely on that warm heat.
2. Clean your furnace regularly. Replace your furnace filter regularly to make sure air can properly flow out of your system. It may also be beneficial to sweep dust and dirt out of the inner portion of the unit. A vacuum might be a good idea.

Not sure if your furnace is outdated? Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is it more than 14 years old?
  • Has your fuel bill been quite high?
  • Are there particularly hot or cold spots in your home?
  • Have you had your equipment repaired within the last three years?
  • Has it been more than a year since your last furnace tune-up?
  • Is your furnace noisy?

Did you find yourself saying yes to most or even one of the above questions? You might want to give your professional plumber a call!

Dean’s is available for furnace maintenance, repair, installation and replacement in the Minneapolis region. Call us today at 612. 424.0982 or visit our website for more information.

There’s a lot more to plumbing than the copper or PVC pipes you’ve seen behind walls and underneath sinks. Did you know that the Ancient Egyptians were the first to construct a drainage system because of the significance that water plays in rituals of their culture? It started way back in 2500 B.C. and has evolved tremendously over the years all the way up to modern plumbing practices today!

 

Moving right along the history of plumbing timeline, The Minoan Palace of Knossos featured four separate drainage systems that empty into the great sewers in 1700 B.C.

In 800 B.C. the first sewers of Rome were built and in 312 B.C. the first aqueducts were built in order to transport water to Roman baths. It wasn’t until 4th Century A.D. that Rome had 11 public baths, 1,352 public fountains and 856 private baths. Can you imagine what it was like bathing in public back then?

So when was the first toilet, as we know it, created? It wasn’t until 1596 when Sir John Harrington invented a “washout” closet and then 1738 when JF Brondel introduced the valve type flush toilet. Believe it or not the first ever packaged toilet paper was invented by American Joseph Gayetty and it was called Gayetty’s Medicated Paper. Finally, in 1870, Thomas Twyford comes up with an improved version of the Bramah with no metal parts and is credited with the revolutionary redesign of a one-piece toilet.

Today, there are over 555,000 plumbers and pipefitters working in the United States. As the plumbing industry continues to grow, so do modern advancements in plumbing systems and plumbing technology.

Are you experiencing a clog so tough that traditional methods of drain cleaning can’t take care of it? You might be in the market for high-velocity water jetting!

Water Jetting is an effective alternative for restoring your drains to a like-new condition. Though snaking and cabling can be sufficient fixes to drains filled with sludge, grease, soap, roots and other foreign materials, you might need something that goes above and beyond to fight through these thick blockages once and for all.

That’s where water jetting comes into play. This technology can pressure wash your drain with up to 4,000 pounds per square inch of water pressure. Voila! Your once clogged drains are now good as new.

Dean’s Professional Plumbing, Heating & Air offers professional drain services to the Twin Cities. Call us today for your water jetting specialist or visit our website for more information.

 

Thinking of making some changes to your home in the new year? If converting your home heating system from heating oil to gas is on the checklist, you’re certainly on the right track!

Why switch from heating oil to gas?

There are a handful of benefits that come with a gas system in your home. They include the following:

  • Increased heating efficiency
  • Cleaner & quieter heat
  • Decreased maintenance needs
  • Greener heating option
  • Potential increase in the value of your home

What are you waiting for? We offer professional Minneapolis oil to gas heating system conversions. Though it can be a difficult and confusing process, with the right contractor and the best equipment, you can be reaping these major benefits in no time.

 

 

UGH! A clogged drain. No one likes this realization. To ease the impact, fight off clogged drains early – instead of waiting until they are completely backed up to take action.

The minute you notice a sluggish drain you should get out the baking soda and vinegar. Pouring just a ½ cup of baking soda followed by ½ cup of vinegar can get your drain running again quickly. Since the two ingredients will produce a chemical reaction, replace the drain cover loosely and let the drain sit for at least 3 hours before running any water again.

If clogged drains worsen, you may need professional services from your local plumber. At Dean’s, we offer a complete list of drain cleaning & rooter services that can unclog tough drains you alone can’t handle.

For high-velocity water jetting, video camera pipe inspection and other powerful solutions, call us at 612.424.0982 or visit our website for more information.

Having a drain problem? It may be due to an increase in sink, toilet and shower usage this time of the year. Cleaning and maintaining your pipes can be a messy task if certain precautionary measures aren’t taken.

Some common drain-clogging culprits include:

  • hair and soap scum
  • body oils
  • food disposal
  • cooking grease
  • unflushables, such as paper towels, cotton swabs and baby wipes
