Reputable, competent plumbing professionals know how to make good recommendations by assessing your plumbing issue and asking relevant questions. We can gain a comprehensive assessment of your needs and suggest products that are best suited to your home. Wisler Plumbing has made a commitment when it comes to any of the products we offer: if we wouldn’t install it in our own homes, we wouldn’t recommend it to our clients, either. We make it a priority to choose products based on their quality and performance instead of just focusing on the bottom dollar.
One of the areas we investigate with plumbing products is their overall efficiency. Water heaters are a good example—efficiency is based on how much insulation they have and the quality of the heating elements. Tankless water heaters may either use condensing or non-condensing technology. With toilets or faucets, the amount of water they use plays a big part in their efficiency. We will choose products that make efficient use of your resources, whether that is power, water, or even time.
The most important factor that we look at is making sure the product offers a good value when it comes to the overall cost of ownership. Products should not require expensive ongoing maintenance. Tankless water heaters, for example, may have a copper fin heat exchanger that attracts the minerals from hard water. This buildup would then require the heat exchanger to be flushed every year. If it was made from stainless steel, it would not obtain mineral buildup in the same manner, meaning it would only have to be flushed every three to four years. This would add up to hundreds of dollars of savings over the years.
We also care about the manufacturer’s warranty offered with the product. A good warranty means that the company stands behind the quality of the product. The warranty should be straightforward, and not involve unnecessary obstacles or fine print. These are the types of factors we take into consideration before recommending any product.
Making wise decisions when purchasing a new product is extremely important. Even though an item may be more expensive upfront, the total cost of ownership over its lifetime may be way less expensive. Our goal is to recommend the best quality product that is efficient, reliable, and a good value. Our clients should be comfortable in knowing that the product will be long-lasting and safe for years to come.
