Testimonials

"Brian works at the cutting edge of heating and cooling technology but he has all the virtues of an old-fashion master of the craft: he knows his trade inside out, he looks at the whole situation (and not just a small part of it), and he sees the job through all the way. We have nothing but praise for him and his team!"

Water and Gas Safety Valves (WAGS)

With a Water and Gas Safety Valve, you can prevent disasters like a flooded basement - Custom Vac provides a full range of heating and air conditioning services, water tank sales, and 24 hour emergency service.In the rural areas some homeowners may notice a rotten egg smell when opening the hot water faucet. This problem can be corrected. The most common cause is hydrogen sulphide associated with the presence of iron and iron bacteria in the cold water supply. Other causes are: algae growth if a dugout well is the usual source of the cold water supply, uncovered wells too close to run-off water or a septic field and/or old water pipes. For treatment contact a qualified technician.

The best advice that we can offer is that you read the manufacturer's installation and maintenance instructions before performing any service, alteration or repair to ensure that you are conforming to all requirements set out in the instructions.

Can anything be done to prevent water damage that typically occurs when a water heater leaks?

Water Damage - Custom Vac provides a full range of heating and air conditioning services, water tank sales, and 24 hour emergency service. Absolutely, the installation of a Water And Gas Safety (WAGS) valve can prevent thousands of dollars of damage, hours of time spent dealing with various Contractors, Insurance Companies, not to mention the mess and potential for mould.

Custom Vac offers various water heaters with warranties ranging from 8 to 25 years on the tank (leakage) and 2 to 5 years on parts and some tanks have limited lifetime warranties (guaranteed not to leak as long as you own your home). Various thicknesses of fibreglass or CFC free foam insulation have dramatically decreased stand by losses. Maintenance and cleaning is minimized with the introduction of self-cleaning dip tubes and larger anode rods means better longer tank life, better performance and less corrosion.

Regardless of what type of water heater, gas, electric or oil, Custom Vac can provide you with the proper sized one to suit your family's needs. For further information use the hyperlinks we have provided for your convenience.
