Bathroom Remodeling

 
Most bathroom remodeling projects go wrong from poor communication between the homeowner and the contractor or from lack of a cohesive plan. In particular, having a plan for a bathroom remodel is critical to prevent costly and time-consuming headaches during the actual project. Long before construction begins, brainstorm different bathroom remodeling ideas to investigate your options. Talk to your plumbing contractor about what's out there and what might work best for you. Here's some bathroom remodeling ideas to get you started thinking about how you can transform your old bathroom.

Small Bathroom Remodeling Ideas

 
Small Bathroom Idea — Plumbers in Louisville. KY
 
Small bathrooms may not be the first candidate on your list of home remodels, but it can be one of the most valuable. Remodeling a small bathroom is naturally a cheaper project than a full or master bath remodel. Plus, getting the most from the space in your small bathroom remodeling project is imperative to making it a functional addition to your home. Remodeling your small bathroom can help you find ways to open this room up. One of the best small bathroom remodeling ideas is to use the corners of your bathroom. Installing corner sinks, faucets, cabinets, or small bathroom vanities can help concentrate several bathroom needs in one area, leaving greater space for foot traffic and decor. Wall-mounted cabinets and in wall cabinets are also great ideas for small bathrooms. At the very least, you can reclaim some bathroom floor space and/or add more storage without sacrificing open space.
 

Luxury Bathroom Remodeling Ideas

 
Now, for luxury bathrooms, the objective is often completely different. An efficient use of space and organization are always considerations, but luxury bathrooms are first and foremost about luxury. Whirlpool tubs are unmatched for creating both relaxation and a therapeutic massage after a long day of work. Luxury showers provide a respectable alternative to whirlpool tubs and are convenient enough for everyday use. If you're a fan of the sauna, a home sauna will do more than just massage muscles. Saunas can purge the body of toxins. And, while showers, tubs, and saunas are the primary installation, luxury bathrooms are about more than a relaxing soak. Expansive, stone counter tops make getting ready in the morning a breeze. Your hair dryer, curling iron, cosmetics, and your morning cup of coffee will all fit comfortably on your bathroom counter. Vessel sinks are now in full vogue, and no bathroom would be complete without a large mirror and numerous cabinets.

Bathroom Remodeling Plans and Estimates

Once you begin to zero in on the design and parameters of your bathroom remodel, it's time to talk to a bathroom remodeling contractor. Tell him or her about the ideas you've already been considering, what new ideas the contractor may have, and, of course, your budget. You may find that some of your ideas are impractical with the budget you had in mind, while others may need to be scaled back a bit. Talk to multiple contractors and get preliminary estimates. Once you've found a contractor you feel comfortable with, work out a clearly written contract, including an itemized list of the work to be done and a time schedule that works for both you and the contractor.

Water Heater Efficiency

The energy efficiency of a storage water heater is indicated by its energy factor (EF), an overall efficiency based on the use of 64 gallons of hot water per day. The first national appliance efficiency standards for water heaters took effect in 1990. New standards, which took effect in January 2004, increased the minimum efficiency levels of water heaters. The most efficient gas-fired storage type water heaters have energy factors ranging from 0.60 to 0.65, corresponding to estimated gas use below 250 therms/year. Condensing water heaters have energy factors as high as 0.86. Electric Water Heaters The most efficient electric storage water heaters have energy factors ranging between 0.93 and 0.95, resulting in estimated annual energy use below 4,725 kWh/year. There is little difference between the most efficient electric resistance storage water heaters and the minimum efficiency standard. Fortunately, heat pump water heaters using less than half as much electricity as conventional electric resistance water heaters are becoming commercially available. If you use electricity for water heating, consider installing a heat pump water heater. Otherwise, look for the most efficient electric resistance unit in your size range.

Tankless Water Heaters

With demand water heaters (i.e. tankless), the manufacturers provide different specifications: the energy input (Btu/hour for gas, kilowatts [kW] for electric); the temperature rise achievable at the rated flow; the flow rate at the listed temperature rise; and so on. In comparing different models, be aware that you aren't always looking at direct comparisons, especially with temperature rise and flow rate. For example, while one model might list the flow rate at a 100°F temperature rise, another might list the flow rate at 90°. Until there are industry-standard ratings for temperature rise and flow rates, it will be difficult to compare the performance of products from different companies without some math skills and the abilityto get real data from the manufacturer. Some companies are beginning to publish energy factor ratings for these products and this information should make for easier comparisons.

Comparing the True Costs of Water Heaters

When comparing the cost of various water heating options, keep in mind that there are two types of cost you need to look at: purchase cost and operating cost. Life-cycle costs, which take into account both the initial costs and operating costs of different water heaters, provide a much more accurate representation of the true costs of the water heater than the purchase price alone. Life-cycle costs for the most common types of water heaters under typical operating conditions are shown in the table here. When both purchase and operating costs are taken into account, one of the least expensive systems to buy (conventional electric storage) is one of the most costly to operate over a 13-year period. An electric heat pump water heater, though expensive to purchase, has a much lower cost over the long term. A solar water heating system, which costs the most to buy, has the lowest yearly operating cost among electric systems.
 

Sump Pumps

 
Fire Hydrant — Plumbers in Louisville, KY
 
If your basement is flooding you may need a new sump pump installation or sump pump replacement. We serve Louisville, KY and all areas surrounding including Southern Indiana. Contact us today if we can help! A sump pump is an extremely important piece of machinery that helps to defend against basement flooding and also helps with the cleanup process after a homeowner's basement has flooded. Unfortunately many American homeowners do not wish to have sump pump because they find the machines to be ugly looking, foul smelling as well as damp-producing and moisture forming.
 
There are many homeowners out there who feel that having a sump pump in their home would make it hard to sell because of their belief that sump pumps emit foul odors that could possibly turn away potential buyers. Expert flood cleanup companies, however, believe that having a quality sump pump structure not only gives potential home buyers piece of mind when it comes to flood clean up issues but can also increase the value of the home. Plumbing experts advise that homeowners use a patented sealed-environment sump pump system. These types of sump pump systems should have three pumps working synergistically in order to aid the homeowner with his or her flood cleanup activity.
These sump pump systems should, in effect, address the common problems relevant with common waterproofing technologies. Sump pumps come with backup systems to help assist if the primary pump fails. The backup sump pump will continue to remove the flood water if that were to happen. Sump pumps also come with an auxiliary pump which helps to support the primary pump in removing large surplus amounts of flood water that need to be removed.
There are also backup sump pumps that can be operated with batteries so that in case of a power failure or in a situation where the main power has to be turned off the sump pump will continue to work. Sump pumps can be a life saver when it comes to effectively pumping out flood water from basements and crawlspaces. They can truly give the homeowner not only piece of mind but they can make it much easier on the homeowner during the flood cleanup process. Also, for the homeowners who hate loud noisy sump pumps, there are many sump pumps on the market today that are quite and smooth running.
They are also extremely effective and can remove up to 110,000 liters of water per hour and also resist clogging by pumping even half-inch wide solid particles. Sump pumps work automatically and begin to remove water as soon as the alarm is activated. Most of these sump pumps are activated once a dangerous level of flood water has been reached. Because of this, sump pumps will not only save a homeowner from having the major headache of cleaning up the flood water manually but it will also save the homeowner tons of money her or she would have had to spend with a professional cleanup company.

Spring Startup

This is to ensure proper controller operation, sprayer & rotor functioning, and valve operation, correct watering times and cycles.

Winterization

This is very important. Often times irrigation systems are not installed properly due to lack of depth into the soil. This will result in busted valves and lines. Short end of the story…..this is can be very costly and expensive to repair. We blow out the remaining water with compressed air so that no volume of water is retained in the irrigation water lines through the winter.

How Water Filters Improve Your Life

Water high in sediments and other impurities tastes bad, causes staining, and can even make you ill. With a water filter installed and serviced by Parker Plumbing of Louisville, you solve many of your water contamination issues. A whole house water filter system can remove the taste and odor of chlorine as well as reduce lead, mercury, microbial cysts, sediment, and agricultural pollutants from your water supply, all of which come from corrosion of household plumbing systems, erosion of natural deposits, decay of asbestos, and run-off from landfills and croplands. These filters are located on the main line before the water enters your home for a whole-house solution.

Professional Water Filter Installation

Whole house water filters are not a do-it-yourself installation project. It requires turning off the water supply, removing a piece of your main supply pipe, installing adapter couplings and compression fittings, and attaching the water filter to the wall for easy access to replace the filter. And once the filtration system is installed, it is important to check for leaks. The Louisville professionals at Parker Plumbing are trained in the installation of water filtration systems and can have yours installed in no time, assuring you have pure and clean water pouring from every location within your home.

We will evaluate the age of your system, as well as test the water coming from it for hardness, iron, and pH levels. We will also check for frequency of regeneration because you want a system that treats water properly AND efficiently. The average lifespan of a water softener is 10 to 15 years, and while it may continue to function longer, its effectiveness and efficiency become reduced with the resin tank starting to foul. Let Parker Plumbing's local Louisville plumbers help you determine if you need a new system or if your current system needs repairs.
