Plumbing Repair

If you need a plumber in San Antonio, you can trust the professionals at Jon Wayne. We have expert plumbers who are ready to help with any plumbing project, large or small. Although we can handle any plumbing repair, we know that many of our customers try to troubleshoot some issues on their own before they call us. This is fine for minor issues like a slow drain but certain issues need to be addressed by a professional. Trying to fix them yourself can make the problem worse and cause extensive water damage to your home. Here are a few issues that many do it yourself enthusiasts try to fix on their own but end up over their heads:

  • Water heaters. Working on your water heater yourself can be extremely dangerous. Your water heater emits carbon dioxide and unless you are a water heater expert, working on it can cause leaks which are dangerous to you and your family. If your water heater needs to be repaired, call us right away to have it fixed.
  • Main line blockages. If your toilets are backing up into your shower, your main line is clogged. A main line blockage is a serious issue and needs to be addressed by an expert plumber immediately.
  • Any project that requires a permit. Things like bathroom remodels or additions. The process of obtaining a permit is complicated and best left to us who do it all the time. If you don’t get the correct permit the addition will not be legal which can affect resale value and cost you money in terms of fines.
  • Shower valve installation. This is a project that may seem easy at first glance but once you start you will find out it is quite time consuming and complicated. Leave it to us so you know it is done correctly.

 If you have these or any other plumbing projects, call us to get the work done right.

How Texas Humidity Affects your Air Conditioner

Texas is infamous for the humidity levels during the summer. We all know how miserable high humidity can be, but have you considered the negative effects on your Pleasanton air conditioning system? All around, too much humidity is bad news, and here’s why:

Your AC will work harder: Humid air feels hotter than dry air,  and when there’s too much humidity in the air, your air conditioner will have to work much harder. When this happens, the system becomes very inefficient. Consider having a system that controls the humidity throughout your home to give your air conditioner a break, making it more energy efficient and saving you money.

Your health will be affected: High humidity compromises your body’s ability to regulate itself, which means you won’t be able to keep cool. You may want to bump down the thermostat a few degrees, when in reality, the humidity needs to be lowered. High humidity also allows for the growth of mold and bacteria, which is really bad for your health and the areas of your home where it’s growing, as it can begin to rot the structure.
