Backflow Preventer

Water in your home is supplied through a main water line, ensuring safe and uncontaminated water enters your premises. However, there are instances when water can flow backward due to pressure changes, contaminating municipal water lines. To prevent this, a backflow preventer is installed, ensuring water flows in only one direction and preventing contaminants from entering the supply source.

What Is Gas Piping?

Gas piping is a crucial component in residential heating systems, responsible for carrying natural gas from the supply directly to your home’s appliances. Let’s delve into the details

How Does a Boiler Work?

“The operation of a boiler really depends on its type. However, the primary purpose of all boilers is to transfer heat to water. In essence, boilers work by either heating water or producing steam, which is then used to heat a home.

Of course, this is a simplified explanation of how boilers work. The inner workings of a boiler become more complex when you consider the different types of boilers.

Now let’s delve into how various types of boilers operate. But first, let’s take a closer look at the operational process that all boilers share.”

How Does A Furnace Work?

Furnace is a household appliance responsible for distributing uniform heat throughout the home. It accomplishes this by circulating warm air through the ventilation system. A furnace performs a similar function to a boiler, which heats water and then transfers it through pipes to radiators throughout the house. The difference lies in the fact that a central furnace introduces heat through the combustion of natural gases or electrical resistance, warming the surrounding air and then distributing it throughout the home or business.

When considering a plumbing system for your home, it’s essential to ensure that waste efficiently exits the structure into either the municipal sewer system or a septic tank. However, your plumbing system works both ways.

A crucial component called a “p-trap” serves as a powerful barrier, preventing sewer gas and odors from entering your home. P-traps are used in plumbing systems that include drains and handle sanitary waste from tubs, showers, and sinks.
