Our expert garbage disposal services include:

  • Repair and service

Should a Damaged Garbage Disposal be Repaired or Replaced?

Oftentimes, garbage disposal issues are due to carelessness. Putting too much in the unit all at once can clog the drain, or a random spoon finding its way in can damage the mechanism. These problems are easy to resolve. If caught in time, costly repairs aren’t needed. 

Signs that you need a garbage disposal repair or replacement can include:

The Disposal Making Strange Noises

When the disposal makes unusual noises, there may be a simple solution: a piece of silverware or other small item needs to be removed. If nothing is blocking the mechanism, but the noise persists, the disposal will need professional attention.

Bad Odors that Won’t Go Away

When food odors persist even after cleaning out the disposal, it can be annoying. Sometimes food particles lodge deep within the disposal and won’t rinse away. If the unit is 15 years old or more, this may be the time to get a newer one.

The Unit Won’t Turn On

If the garbage disposal doesn’t turn on, this can be caused by several things. It could mean the electrical circuit breaker tripped. You can try pushing the disposal’s reset button. If it still doesn’t work, it may be an issue with the wiring or a mechanical problem. The best recourse at this point is to call a professional.

Leaking Water

It’s not good news, but even regularly serviced disposals won’t last forever. Some older units develop problems such as cracked housings. When this issue develops, the disposal will leak water that can damage cabinets. Repairing these units may be too costly.

Constant Jamming

Several factors can cause constant jams. Someone may have crammed too many large scraps in all at once. Plus, grease, coffee grounds, or other oily stuff in the unit can cause jams. Also, rice, pasta, and potatoes are notorious for jamming disposals. 

If clearing these clogs the unit is still jammed, it’s time to call a professional.

The average lifespan of a disposal unit is 10 to 15 years. Are you experiencing any of the above problems with your aging unit? If so, it is time to consider a garbage disposal upgrade. 

Garbage Disposal Replacement

Well, the verdict is in. You need to replace your garbage disposal. However, choosing the right unit for your home can be confusing with so many disposals on the market today. 

The best way to make an informed decision is to know what to look for in a new garbage disposal. As you can guess, they’re not all created equal. Your decision may center around personal preferences such as noise level. Some units are much quieter than others, so do some research. 

If your old unit had trouble grinding food scraps, you might want one that has more power and sharper blades. Some units can cut through beef bones. 

Depending on how often you use your disposal, the motor’s horsepower may be a determining factor. In most cases, a one-horsepower unit is enough for most needs. A one-half or three-fourths horsepower disposal can also meet the needs of a typical family of four to six persons.

Are you still undecided about how to choose the best disposal? If so, the experts at WireNut Home Services can provide more information.

Your Hot Water Heater installation Done Right!

Signs that your water heater may need repair or replacement

  • Water is not the same temperature or does not stay hot as long as in previous experience.
  • Water quality issues, such as rust or sediment in hot water, water heater heats up more often, suggesting degradation of insulation or a pressure leak.
Repair instead of Replace

If a water heater unit is properly maintained by service professionals, it can last a decade or more. A water heater is a significant investment for your home, and repairs can often save you hundreds of dollars in the long term. Issues where repair service is beneficial over a complete replacement to include replacement of external piping, repairs of electrical thermostats and sensors, repair of minor external damage, and replacement of filters and sensors in the natural gas and carbon monoxide sections accessible for service.

When Should My Water Heater Be Replaced

Water heater replacement is suggested when a unit is deemed non-repairable, or the request is made by the client to have their water heater replaced. A water heater has a typical service life of ten to fifteen years, so if your water heater is approaching that age, begin looking at replacing your unit instead of having it serviced.

Expert Water Heater Repairs and Replacements from WireNut Home Services.

WireNut Home Services professionals are trained and certified to carry out repairs and installation of water heating devices. This exacting process includes training in natural gas safety and handling, plumbing, and carbon monoxide hazard prevention.

Why should I not repair/replace myself??

Water heaters are deceptively complex devices that deal with high pressure, natural gas, and carbon monoxide. There is the possibility that if a certified professional is not used in repair or replacement, catastrophic damage to the unit or even personal injury, potentially serious, may occur. It is highly recommended to use a professional service such as WireNut Home Services for any issues with your water heater.

Why has my water heater repaired instead of replaced?

If a water heater unit is properly maintained by service professionals, it can last a decade or more. A water heater is a significant investment for your home, and repairs can often save you hundreds of dollars in the long term. Issues where repair service is beneficial over a complete replacement to include replacement of external piping, repairs of electrical thermostats and sensors, repair of minor external damage, and replacement of filters and sensors in the natural gas and carbon monoxide sections accessible for service.

When to have my water heater replaced?

Installation of a tankless water heater system may seem straightforward and easy, yet it deals with electricity, natural gas, carbon monoxide, and high pressure, and should always be installed by a certified installation professional. A typical installation scenario involves the removal of your old water heater tank, installation of the new tankless water heater, and testing of the unit. In terms of time, two to four hours depending on removal of the old tank, layout of the home, installation and setup of the tankless water heater solution you decide upon, and testing is a common average.
