Radiant Heat, Hydronic Heat, and Boilers

Pillar Plumbing is a full-service plumbing contractor in Kingwood, TX, and Humble, TX, offering many different kinds of plumbing services with specialized training and experience in radiant and hydronic heating. 

What is radiant heat, you ask? This heating method is used worldwide, and it utilizes hot water and piping to heat your home. There are significant benefits to using radiant heat over conventional forms of heating. In Texas, many homes and businesses are heated with furnaces that heat the air.

This can lead to problems such as hot and cold imbalances, gusts of air movement, greater circulation of dust and airborne illnesses, and a lack of efficiency. Radiant heat can be described as the same type of heating as standing in the sunlight. In terms of comfort and efficiency, radiant heat is ultimately the best, though radiant heat is only one form of hydronic heating. There are various ways of heating a home or business utilizing a piece of equipment such as a boiler or water heater. With our extensive knowledge in zoning, controls, radiant, and hydronic heating, call Pillar Plumbing today to see how we can help you. You can reach out to us at 713-425-4185.

Other Toilet Services: Pressure Assist, Power Flush, and Flush Valves

There are many types of toilets on the market, and knowing how to repair, maintain, and replace the various types of commodes takes an experienced plumbing company. When discussing pressure assist toilets, sometimes referred to as power flush toilets, it’s important to note that these are most commonly used in commercial toilet installations. Primarily, they are designed to have a more powerful flush cycle to handle public use. Many residential toilets are simply gravity flush type toilets. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t have one or the other in your home or business. The decision on what toilet is best for your home or business will ultimately come down to what you will use, preference, and serviceability.

One great feature of commercial flush valve toilets is the ease of toilet repair. A flush valve toilet lacks some parts that can fail in traditional residential toilets. For example, a flush valve toilet has a flush valve with a trip lever. This simple design lacks flappers, fill valves, tank bolts, tank seals, and overflow tubes. A more straightforward design and ease of serviceability make for an excellent alternative for public use, as seen in the top picture – the difference in pressure assist and gravity flush toilets. A flush valve toilet is seen in the image below. Contrarily, a pressure-assist is a bit of a hybrid toilet between the flush valve and gravity flush toilet types. A pressure assist toilet utilizes water pressure that builds within a specialized flush mechanism and then releases that pressure upon flush. This makes for a powerful flush cycle while keeping the standard aesthetics for residential toilets.

Regardless of your use or preference, Pillar Plumbing is well-versed in the options available for toilet repairs and replacement. Please call us today so we can assist you in solving your toilet problems.

Professional Toilet Replacement

Every property relies heavily on its toilet working properly. Residential toilets use tanks with a gravity flush system, and some businesses choose to use a gravity flush system, but most businesses often rely on a pressure-assisted system. Regardless of the flushing mechanism, the components of a toilet are exposed to chlorinated water, which impacts the plumbing system seals and gaskets. 

The photo gallery above shows some examples of toilets that desperately need repairs; it is inevitable that a toilet will need maintenance at some point. A toilet will generally last 5-10 years before needing service. Many issues can arise in a toilet, but our trusted plumbers at Pillar Plumbing will quickly diagnose and present you with a solution for your toilet issues. Repairing a toilet might be an easy fix, but there are times when replacement is the best option to ensure the problem is resolved; like any appliance, toilets wear out, too!

Scale build-up could hinder the way your toilet flushes, which would be another big reason that replacement would need to take place. Having an experienced plumber is vital in helping you make the right decision; our plumbers are sure to consider your budget and needs when trying to find the best solution. It’s essential to ensure there is no significant water damage within your property; leaking toilets could potentially destroy your property while increasing your water bill. Pillar Plumber specializes in toilet replacements and can provide multiple options that suit your budget.

The last thing you want is a lukewarm tub experience. What else should be considered in the tub planning or repair stage?

Adequate drainage and accessibility, if not correctly planned not only can your tub’s drain be the source of a severe leak, but also make future plumbing services extremely difficult without proper accessibility. Many of the new free-standing tubs are installed with flexible slip joint connections; it seems like common sense to install a plumbing fixture so that future plumbing repairs are easy to tackle. Unfortunately, that is not often the case with tubs. Many builders do a great job of making things look good but fail to include proper emergency shut-off valves and access doors.

Garbage Disposal Replacement and Repair

Garbage disposals are one of those everyday luxuries we tend to take for granted. Disposals do a large amount of work year-round, continuously grinding up food and washing it down the drain. Over time, the internal components begin to wear, and the metal begins to deteriorate. Then, the disposal starts leaking into the cabinet and floor below. When turned on, the garbage disposal may simply no longer work and make a strange humming noise. 

Unfortunately, for most garbage disposal problems,  garbage disposal repair is not an option, and garbage disposal replacement is the only alternative. Depending upon your needs and use will determine what disposal is best suited for you. Do you cook a lot? Do you have a large family? What size do you currently have? What kind of warranty are you interested in? These are just some things to consider when dealing with a disposal replacement or upgrade. Regardless of the size of disposal you choose, Pillar Plumbing only offers solid, stainless steel brands with auto reverse options. The stainless design will help to ensure it lasts longer, and the auto-reverse will help to avoid jams or other stuck items. Let Pillar Plumbing in Kingwood address your garbage disposal needs.

We would love to help you learn even more about the various services we offer as a plumbing contractor in Humble, TX and Kingwood, TX. Give us a call today at 713-425-4185.
