Live in an Older Home? Do These 4 Plumbing Fixes

Posted on November 21, 2018 by oozle

Whether you’ve just moved into an older home or have been living there for quite some time, chances are that you’ll have to consider doing some repairs or replacing some things at some point. Here are four such projects you just might run into.

Replace Your Water Heater

A water heater’s life expectancy typically ranges from eight to 12 years. To find out how old it is you need to inspect the serial number located on the manufacturer label. If it’s time to replace it, you’ll need to consider the different types of water heaters. Here is an informative checklist with the different types of water heaters so you can know which one is best for you.

Install a Water Purifier or Softenerglass of water

If your skin tends to get dry, then you just might have hard water running through your home. The effects of hard water can easily be combated with either a water purifier or softener—which many older homes don’t have installed. A purifier processes the water to remove chemicals and minerals. A softener, however, adds sodium to the water. To understand the benefits of each option, check out our comparison of the two in order to know which one would work best for you and your household.

Repair or Replace Your Pipes


Older pipes tend to be more prone to leaks and bursts than newer ones. That is why it’s important to know the 20 year rule. If your system is older than 20 years old, replace it. If it is younger, have it inspected for needed maintenance. To know more about whether or not your pipes need to be repaired or replaced, go through our checklist to help determine which option would be best for your situation.

Tune up Your Furnace


The lifespan of a furnace is 18-20 years. However, they should be inspected for any needed tune ups every other year until they are 10 years old and then such checks should occur annually. To understand all that is included in a tune up, check out this bullet point list that we’ve comprised to help give you more detail on the process.

I own several homes, so value a company that can save me time and money. Alessandro let me know he was on the way, arrived on time, diagnosed our heating unit and repaired it quickly. He also educated me on how to maintain the units on my properties and use the unit more efficiently. ProServ Las Vegas was great!
