Here’s Why We Use Video Pipe Inspection

February 25th, 2019

Considering just how large and complex your plumbing system is, locating the source of a leak or a clog can be quite a difficult task. However, the latest plumbing technologies have made it much easier for plumbers to locate and fix hard to reach leaks and clogs. If you find yourself dealing with a plumbing issue, your plumber in Madison, MS might use video pipe inspection to diagnose and repair your issue.

You see, back in prehistoric times, plumbers would have to diagnose plumbing issues through secondary symptoms and then dig around the general area until they found the right pipe. Of course, this worked, but it had the added side effect of causing a lot of unnecessary damage to the surrounding area. Now, many plumbers are equipped with video pipe inspection equipment (and the skill and training necessary to use it) in order to resolve complex issues. Keep reading below to learn more!

January 28th, 2019

drain-pipesIf you have found yourself in the constant cycle of repairing pipe after pipe, it might be time to consider whole-house repiping.

Have You Thought About Your Air Filter?

December 17th, 2018

If you own a furnace, you appreciate it for its versatility, affordability, and effectiveness. So, when something goes wrong, you are bound to notice. We know that scheduling repair services can be a hassle—it costs you time and money. So, why not skip the repair altogether and schedule a maintenance visit? During this visit, your HVAC technician will perform routine inspections and replace your air filters. Your furnace’s air filter is easy to forget about, so it becomes easy to minimize the importance of it.

Your system’s air filter should be changed about every 1–3 months, especially during the heating season. Typically, homeowners get their filters replaced once a year, but it simply isn’t enough. Without scheduling regular filter replacement, your furnace is subjected to a wide range of potential problems, including a full system breakdown! Luckily, this can all be easily avoided. Our technicians at Environment Masters, Inc. provide quality HVAC services in Brandon, MS.

Maintaining Great Indoor Air Quality

December 3rd, 2018

UV-liightIf you think that the air in your home is of a higher quality than the air outside by default, it isn’t. We all know that there is some pollution in the air outside, but few homeowners understand that the air quality indoors is often lower than that outside. Fewer realize that this is often the case by a significant margin! Remember, modern homes tend to be sealed up very tightly. That’s great for energy efficiency, but not so much for indoor air quality.

Fortunately for you, the IAQ professionals on our team are never more than a phone call away. Environment Masters, Inc. is here to find the right air filtration and/or purification systems for your needs. Don’t count on the standard air filter in your whole-house heating or air conditioning system to do the job. Those filters are of relatively low-efficiency ratings and are really there to protect the HVAC system itself, not the air quality throughout the home.

Upgrade your home for the holidays and get 12 months same as cash financing.

Environment Masters is offering this special financing during the months of

November and December 2018 for either a Chief Whole-home water filtration system OR a tankless water heater.

CHIEF WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM

With a Chief whole house water filtration system the difference is clear.

A Chief system:

  • Removes up to 99% of water-soluble lead, mercury, nickel, chromium and other dissolved metals
  • Removes chlorine, chemicals and organic pesticides
  • Controls the buildup of bacteria, algae, fungi and scale
  • Reduces corrosion of plumbing and fixtures
  • Reduces build-up of sludge in hot water tanks
  • Permanent installation: No filters to replace and no chemicals to add
  • No more discolored water
  • Washing machine washes with clean, clear water
  • Plants grow better
  • Juice concentrates, coffee and tea taste better
  • No more rust ring around the bathtub and lavatory

 

UNFILTERED VS CHIEF FILTERED DISHWASHER WATER

Now you can drink, shower and wash in clean, chemical-free, and odor-free comfort. Whole house filtration is better for your health and better for your house, helping your appliances last longer.

And a Chief system doesn’t need a replacement filter – all you need is a garden hose to clean your system periodically.  Easy-care, no-filter maintenance is simple to do yourself, or you can choose an Environment Masters’ annual service contract.

 

PERMANENT INSTALLATION UNDER GROUND – EASY ACCESS WITH A METER COVER

SEE THE DIFFERENCE:

UNFILTERED BUCKET: City water that is running through your home. You’re bathing in it, washing your clothes in it, and cooking with it. (actual Jackson municipal water)

FILTERED BUCKET: Same city water after Chief Water Purification.

*The Chief system cannot be installed with galvanized pipe.

TANKLESS WATER HEATER

Slash energy costs and have endless hot water with a tankless water heater.

Take a bath, wash dishes, & do laundry all at the same time! Why keep 40+ gallons of water hot when you don’t need it? Save energy costs and never run out of hot water. Plus you’ll qualify for an energy rebate from your utility company. (Atmos & CenterPoint customers)

Endless hot water. Regardless of simultaneous usage – washing machine, dishwasher, multiple showers – you’re assured of immediate and endless hot water.

 

 

Significant Energy Savings. Heat water only as you need it. Why keep heating and reheating a huge tank of hot water that still limits supply?

 

Space Savings. The tankless system’s compact design (approximately the size of a carry-on suitcase) means flexibility and space savings in installation.

 

Increased Home Value. Up-to-date technology and an improved Home Energy Rating System (HERS) index score make your home more livable, more valuable.

 

Longer life, no tank leakage! The tankless design means longer life, thanks to component parts that make updates simple with no new system is required. While upfront costs are slightly higher for a tankless system, your return on investment shows it’s a wise purchase.
