As a Chicago plumbing company with over fifty years’ experience in the construction industry, we understand the stress homeowners go through when building a new home or renovating an existing one. A combination of decisions, misunderstandings, expectations, finances, and emotions can make the project feel very overwhelming.
Part of the recipe for a successful construction project is to hire the right contractors. A number of different systems form the plumbing in a house. From your utility provider, clean water is supplied through water supply pipes and then distributed to sinks, toilets, bathtubs etc. The drain-waste-vent system then removes the used water and waste through to sewers. Fuel for gas-burning ovens and stoves, grills, furnaces, and fireplaces are delivered via natural-gas plumbing systems.
With the current move towards more environmentally friendly developments, building and renovations provide the opportunity to create a waterwise home. Incorporating water efficiency measures inside and outside the home will help to reduce your water use.
Because a home’s plumbing system is a complicated and costly network of water supply pipes, drainpipes, vent pipes, and more, it pays to understand how the system works so that you can design a system that works resourcefully. For new water pipes or water line repairs, we are the plumbers trusted in Chicago.
The primary uses of gas in a home include heating, cooling (rarely used), and cooking. Cooking with gas provides quick heating and easy temperature control – making it the preferred choice for many a top chef. It also costs approximately one-half the cost of cooking with an electric range.
According to the American Gas Association, 62 million homes in the United States are heated using natural gas.
