5 Quick Tips for Finding A Great Plumbing Service In The Lowcountry

Tuesday, January 25th, 2022

Did you know that a leaking toilet costs about six dollars per day on your water bill? That comes out to about $180 more per month. This means you need to get that leaking toilet fixed as soon as possible.


But how do you know which plumbing service is the best in the Lowcountry? How do you decide who to trust to fix this issue?


You already know that you need reliable plumbing services. The good news is that there are ways to tell which companies are trustworthy.


Read on to learn five things to look for when shopping for plumbing services.



1. Experience and Training



The longer someone stays in a business, the better they know that business. This allows them to work better and faster than those who are just starting out. Plumbing is no exception to this rule.


That’s why the first thing you should look for in a plumbing company is experience. How long have they been in business? 


You want a company that has been in business for several years at least. These companies have the knowledge and skills to help solve your problems quickly. They’ll also solve those problems for the first time.


Employee experience is also important to this decision. You need to be sure that any contractors or subcontractors that come into your home actually know what they’re doing.


Having said that, everyone has to start somewhere. It’s not the end of the world if a newer employee comes to service your home. The length and quality of their training are just as important.



2. Insurance and Warranties



It’s always best if nothing goes wrong both during and after any work has been done. However, accidents and mistakes are bound to happen occasionally. It’s important that both you and your contractor are prepared for such an event.


Consider what would happen if there was an accident on your property involving the contractor working on your plumbing. Homeowners being sued for medical expenses in these cases is not unheard of. If the contractor has good insurance, however, then this becomes unnecessary.


Any problems with the work shouldn’t be an issue either. Your plumber should offer warranties to protect themselves from any losses from problems with repairs. This allows you to get your plumbing repaired at no extra cost while your plumber doesn’t need to lose any money.


So when you’re looking for quality plumbing services, always ask about insurance and warranties. This can save you a lot of headaches later if something goes wrong. 



3. Professionalism



In any business, the conduct of a company’s employees should always reflect the work ethic, values, and quality of the business. The same is true of plumbing companies. That’s why another thing you should look for in your plumbing service is professionalism.


When you first contact the company for service, you should notice that professionalism right away. The person scheduling your appointment should be knowledgeable about what you need and how soon. They should be polite and be able to help you quickly.


Then when you’re appointment time arrives, the contractor should be on time. Things happen that might prevent this, but in these cases, the company should contact you to inform you of the delay.


The contractor helping you should be knowledgeable about their work. They should know exactly why they’re there. Furthermore, they should also be polite and respectful to you while they’re in your home.


This shows that the company cares about its image and its work.



4. Positive Reviews



When people have either a really good or a really bad experience with a company, they often leave a review online for people to see. This serves as a signal to other people that the service was either fantastic or to avoid the company completely.


However, most companies don’t want bad reviews for this reason. Most will do anything they can to fix the issue and convince the person to remove the bad review. This means that reviews are a great way to tell how much a company cares about its work and its image. 


If you see a lot of good reviews, then you’re looking at a great company. However, if there are a lot of bad reviews, then this means the company has made no effort to correct the situation. If something were to go wrong with your work, they might not even try to fix it for you.


So always keep a lookout for a lot of bad reviews before you hire a plumbing service.



5. Cost



Finally, everything comes down to money. You want to be sure that you’re getting a fair deal on any work that’s needed at your home. 


To achieve that goal, it’s always a good idea to shop around for quotes before you commit to any work being done. This gives you an idea of what different companies are offering for the same work. 


Most plumbing contractors should charge somewhere in a similar range with each other. There will always be slight variations due to warranties and insurance, but there shouldn’t be too large of a difference between prices. That large difference is exactly what you should be watching out for.


If one company seems to be charging much more than their competitors, then they’re clearly overcharging you. On the other hand, someone who is charging much less is also suspicious. You should look for a company that charges similarly to most other companies in your area.

Discover Our New Plumbing Services for Lowcountry Customers

Tuesday, January 18th, 2022

Although our company has long been known for our heating and cooling services, we’ve expanded to provide plumbing solutions to our Charleston customers. When you need a Charleston plumber, you can count on us. 



Carolina Climate Control provides a full lineup of plumbing services for customers in and near Charleston, SC. Water heater repair, drain cleaning, and gas line services are just a few of the solutions we offer. 



Water Heater Services



Your hot water heater probably isn’t an appliance you think about unless something goes wrong with it. Water heaters are designed to last about ten years, but it’s not uncommon for them to need repairs, especially if they were improperly installed or if too much sediment has built up. 



Carolina Climate Control features water heater services that include:



Water Heater Repair



We can send a certified Charleston plumber to your home to assess your water heater. We can get to the root of its problem and then provide the ideal fix. We can also provide you with an upfront cost for the repair before we start the work. 



Water Heater Maintenance



With periodic water heater maintenance, you may be able to ward off breakdowns and repairs. During your water heater’s inspection, our plumber will perform tasks like testing the TPR valve, inspecting the anode rod, and draining the tank to wash out the sediment buildup. 



Replacement and Installation of Water Heaters



Whether you’re looking for a traditional water heater or tankless water heater, we can replace your existing model with a new one. Ask us about installing a new energy-efficient water heater for your home.



Leak Detection



Carolina Climate Control specializes in leak detection services. Leaks can cause extensive property damage. Sometimes, leaks at the faucet or around the toilet are obvious. When you notice leaking water, just contact us and we’ll send a Charleston plumber to your home to repair the leak. 



On the other hand, your home contains many pipes that are not visible to the eye. They’re hidden behind walls and under your flooring. How do you know if one has sprung a leak? Lingering mildew odors, increases in your water bill without corresponding increases in water usage, reduced water pressure, and water or even mold spots on the wall can be telltale signs of a leak. 



Our plumbers can determine where the leak has occurred and provide the necessary repair. 






Do you have a slow drain or clogged drain? Let Carolina Climate Control tackle the problem. Drain cleaning is part of our Charleston, SC, plumbing services. Don’t rely on commercial drain cleaners to break through clogs. They may not work on stubborn clogs and will simply linger in your drain where they can do damage to your plumbing system. 



Our plumbers bring everything needed to open up your drains and clear the lines of debris that’s causing the slow drain or clog. They may be able to undo the blockage using a drain snake or hydro jetting. Some clogs may be caused by damaged or collapsed sections of pipe. If that problem occurs, we can replace the damaged sections and get your plumbing system in working condition again. 



Sewer Main Line



Sometimes the sewer main line could be causing your slow drains or even causing sewage to back up. This is definitely a plumbing problem for professionals. Sewer lines can be infested by tree roots or may even be damaged. Our certified plumbers can assess the problem and provide the ideal solution. 



Kitchen Plumbing 



Carolina Climate Control’s plumbing services include all aspects of kitchen plumbing, including:


  • Kitchen faucets
  • Kitchen sink installation / replacement
  • Garbage disposal repair and installation
  • Kitchen sink plumbing repairs
