The History of London Plumbing

When you have a plumbing emergency like a leaky tap or blocked toilet, you will want to call a plumber as soon as possible to minimise the damage and repair it as quickly as possible. The plumber will then charge you a per hour or per day rate to complete the work. Some plumbers will add in a call out fee and others may charge for materials used to fix the issue. If you are unsure what to expect when you get a quote for a job, it is worth asking a few local plumbers for quotes before you hire one.URL:

Why is called plumbing?

In the 1800s, London’s sewer system was an incoherent mess of independently planned systems that funnelled waste into the River Thames. In 1858, the city experienced an extraordinary summer that exposed decades of waste and caused the Great Stink. In response, Bazalgette’s massive sewer plan was implemented to dramatically improve the health and safety of the city’s residents.

Leaky pipes and drains, left unattended, can lead to extensive water damage that can significantly devalue your home or business. Regular maintenance by a reputable City plumber can prevent this from happening and save you money on repairs in the future. It can also reduce your water bills and protect your property from dampness and mould that can affect the quality of your health. Investing in regular plumbing maintenance is also environmentally friendly as it contributes to water conservation and the prevention of pollutants.

Spray Foam Insulation in Atlanta

Many homeowners in Atlanta use spray foam insulation in their homes. Green Earth Spray Foam is a good choice and can help cut heating and air costs significantly. However, it is a complex product that requires a professional installation to be used properly. If done incorrectly, the results can be disastrous.

Where should you not use spray foam?

Green Earth Services spray foam installers use a product called Energy Seal which is a high-density polyurethane that expands once it is sprayed. It fills in all the nooks and crannies of wall cavities and provides a complete seal that keeps unwanted air out and conditioned air in. This also reduces outside noise, which is an important factor for a peaceful night’s sleep.

The spray foam also allows for heating and cooling equipment “rightsizing” which saves initial building costs as well as monthly utility costs. Typically, this saves 25% – 40% in heating and cooling costs. The spray-applied, fine cell structure of Energy Seal also prevents the penetration of moisture into the wall structure and drywall and acts as a vapor barrier.

This type of foam is also very effective in attics, as it will prevent ice dams and keeps heat from rising and escaping the home during the winter months. This type of spray insulation is often used in new construction or in retrofitting existing homes where a different kind of insulation was previously installed.

Closed-cell spray foam is often used in Atlanta crawl spaces and subfloors as it serves as both an air and a vapor barrier. It also resists mold, mildew and fungus. Both types of spray foam insulation are environmentally friendly and do not contain HCFCs, which are harmful to the Earth’s ozone layer, nor do they off gas formaldehyde or other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) over time.
