FInding an affordable plumbing service in LBI doesn’t have to be a battle. Yes, you want to use a reliable plumbing company with experienced and skilled technicians, but at the same time, you don’t want to break the bank. We have good news for you. It’s not impossible to find quality at an affordable rate. You just need to know how to look.

First and foremost, it’s important to state the difference between affordable and cheap.

Finding a local jack-of-all-trades handyman to fix your plumbing problem will often be cheaper than a licensed plumbing contractor. But is it really cheaper if you end up having to hire a second person to fix their mistakes? Or if the repair doesn’t pass inspections? Hiring an affordable plumbing service that is fully licensed and insured is truly worth any additional costs incurred.

At Air Tech Heating, Cooling and Plumbing, we’ve put together some quick tips on how to find, not only the best affordable plumbing service in Ocean County.

Start With An Online Search

Always read the online reviews and ask around for referrals. Take a quick read through their website. Is it professionally done, or just thrown up there? It’s one thing to find cheap plumbing services, but if their work doesn’t hold up, you’ll find out the hard way—sooner than you’d probably like.

Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is. Quality plumbers take pride in all aspects of their work, from in home repairs to their website to customer service.

Check for Licensing and Certifications

Check the website for licensing information. While you need to find an affordable plumbing service, you also need to find someone who is licensed and qualified to get the job done right the first time. Only using someone with the proper certifications helps ensure that they will know how to deal with your plumbing needs.

Get a Quote Before the Work Begins

When you need plumbing services, a professional plumber should be able to provide you with a realistic estimate of the costs based on what work needs to be done. If they insist on starting work without providing an estimate first, trust your gut. It’s best to avoid that scenario.

Even if someone assures you that they’ll provide an affordable plumbing service, you can’t be sure until you have a quote in hand.

Save Even More on Plumbing

Want to know how to keep your money from (literally) going down the drain? When it comes to plumbing, a few preventative measures can help you avoid unnecessary water loss.

Did you know that the average home uses between 50-70 gallons of water every day. That’s a considerable amount of water being used by each NJ home. Of that amount, the majority is from toilet flushes, amounting to approximately 20 gallons. How’s that for an excellent reason to install a low-flow toilet fixture?

Did you know that by installing high-efficiency plumbing fixtures and keeping up with maintenance tasks, you can reduce water consumption by up to 35% or more. Consider installing a tankless water heater and ENERGY STAR® rated appliances to help reduce waste.

Did you know that approximately 10% of homes have leaks, which can waste up to 90 gallons a day? According to the EPA, a shower head that leaks at 10 drips per minute can waste more than 500 gallons per year! Leak detection and routine maintenance play a big part in reducing water waste and saving money.
