24/7 Emergency Service

Summertime! Projects are easier…and might be a little cheaper too!

Here we are…summertime!! The summer solstice is just a memory, and (though we hate to think about it) the days have been getting shorter for a while now. There’s still plenty of time to enjoy our Great Northwest, and tackle one or two of those projects that are best done during the summer.  And… at the best price possible because they’re planned and not due to an emergency caused by equipment failures and breakdowns.  Here are a few items to consider getting done during these last weeks of summer…

Any Dirt-Work Project…

If there are any projects that require the ground to be opened up, summer is the best time to do them if possible. This includes things like…

  • Inspections and locates on sewer lines.
  • Installing clean-outs in main sewer lines, to make service and maintenance quicker and cheaper.
  • Replacing older sewer lines, or sewer lines that have clogging issues due to roots etc., either with conventional trenching or horizontal drilling or pipe-bursting methods.
  • Or, instead of replacing an old line, installing a new liner to bring it back to ‘like new’ condition.
  • Replacing an older main water-service line; whether you use conventional trenching methods or the newer ‘horizontal drilling’ methods.
  • Up-grading your lawn sprinkler system, with a new backflow device, a new sprinkler head somewhere, new drainage in a problem area that is pooling, or adding a new ‘deduct meter’, so you are not paying for city sewer on the water you sprinkle with.

HVAC Maintenance and/or Equipment Upgrades

It’s great to work on the HVAC system when it’s not trying to keep everyone warm.  Items to consider include…

  • Furnace, heat-pump, A/C or boiler check-ups and maintenance to help keep things working safely and economically.
  • Upgrading your 20+ year old furnace with a new, energy savings unit to improve comfort and economy.  Replacing old electric furnaces saves a lot of money annually, even if it’s just due to the energy saved on running the warm-air fan.
  • Adding A/C to your home or business, either a central air system, or adding a ductless unit to enhance the heating-only system or to completely replace an ‘all electric’ heating system.  Again, greatly improving both comfort and the economy of the system.

Any Plumbing, Heating or Cooling Major Work

Of course, generally, it’s just nicer to do big jobs when it’s not cold and rainy outside.  Things like…

  • Adding natural gas or propane to your home or business, and/or adding new equipment that you have wanted for a while like a gas fireplace, or a natural gas barbeque. Imagine never running out of gas while grilling…ever! 
  • Upgrading an old water heater to a new storage water heater of perhaps a new gas tankless heater to enable the proverbial ‘endless hot water’.
  • Re-piping a whole home or business, replacing old galvanized piping with copper, or better yet, with PEX piping.
  • Changing out all the original, cheap ‘builder grade’ washing machine shut-offs and/or the ‘one-piece’ shut-off and flex riser, that often springs a leak when barely touched after many years.
  • New faucets, sinks, tub-shower valves; anything you have just ‘lived with’ for years and have been wanting to change, up-grade and improve.

With busyness being as it is, the sooner we get started on planning and getting pricing for one or two of these projects, the better, if we actually want to get it done before the rains start in October/November.  August and September are two of our driest months; don’t let them slip by and miss the window!!

We had a great experience with Day and Nite from start to finish. Chris was great at the no obligation consult. He explained things clearly and covered everything but didn’t waste our time. They also provided lots of options and thoroughly explained them but never tried to push or up-sell us. Installation was fast and very professional. We will definitely be using Day and Nite in the future.

S. Lippold

Outstanding Service! Scheduler was pleasant and receptive. Technician (Collin) communicated well, arrived in the agreed upon time frame, diagnosed the problem and fixed the issue quickly. Previously, we had two other companies misdiagnose the problem and one company stand us up for a scheduled appointment. If we have plumbing issues in the future, Day & Night Plumbing will be our first call !

I had the privilege to meet Zach on two separate occasions within a two week span. He was upfront and honest about the work that needed to be done. He is a hard-working, dedicated, professional employee of Day and Nite Plumbing. He explained what needed to be done. I asked questions and he was patient and explained things further so that I truly understood.

D. Campbell

Very pleased with the professional technician, Donavan, who came out when our water heater quit working. This was the third major problem with this water heater, so we took his advice and replaced it. Thankfully, he was able to also install the new one right away. I had confidence in his advice and ability to do the job. He was thorough and friendly. It was a five star experience. I highly recommend.

D. Lee

The technician was great: he knew exactly what the problem was and fixed it quickly and efficiently. Even when a glitch happened in the repair, he was totally prepared to handle the situation. I will definitely contact Day & Nite Plumbing for future problems. Thank you!

M. Lindell

Collin was our tech and he was very knowledgeable answered our questions and what they charged was very reasonable and we are very happy to have water again. I was really impressed by everyone that we dealt with they all were professional and helpful.
