If there is one thing that is predictable about the weather around Chattanooga is that it is unpredictable! Recent temperatures have made it feel more like the fall as opposed to winter. But that doesn’t mean that a winter storm won’t come raging into Chattanooga requiring everyone to bundle up to stay warm. Before that happens, it might be a good idea to check out your home’s water heater to make sure it can withstand the pounding from another long stretch of winter.
Recently, Bob Rayburn, the sales manager at Chattanooga Heating and Air Conditioning told Nooga.com that he recommends folks get that water heater check-up maintenance performed before the cold weather hits. He also had some tips for energy savings. “Most of the time, we tell (people) to set (thermostats) to 68,” Rayburn said. “But don’t cut it way down. It will just take too long to heat back up. That’s why people’s bills go up so much if they are monkeying around with their thermostats too much.”
As for the water heater, Rayburn suggests wrapping the water heater with insulation to protect it from harsh drops in temperature and make sure the heat doesn’t escape. However, no amount of insulation can help a water heater that has seen better days. When it’s time for a replacement, you should consider contracting with Junk King of Chattanooga
to handle the removal of that old water heater and make room for the new model.
An old water heater is not something you can stuff into your garbage can for the weekly pick up. First of all, good luck carrying that out of the basement! More to the point, that old water heater needs to be disposed of properly. This could mean sending it off to a scrap metal yard as opposed to a landfill. But you really don’t have to fret over those types of decisions once you’ve brought Junk King into the picture. They’ll know just how to handle the disposal process. Here’s another thing to think about: What else can you get rid of in this same trip? In other words, just because the Chattanooga crew Junk King is getting rid of your old water heater doesn’t mean they can’t get rid of all your other junk.
What’s collecting dust in your attic or garage? Are there auto parts from a long abandoned restoration job? A busted piano that nobody is ever going to play again? Wood scraps from a remodel project? You’ve probably been hanging onto this kind of junk for the same reason why you can’t throw out your water heater: It’s too big! You can depend on the Junk King crew to show up with the right size truck which means that nothing will be too big to haul away. They’ll also have the right amount of man power to accomplish the task at hand. The only finger you’ll be lifting is to make the call to Junk King Chattanooga.
