Emergency plumbing repair

At Hurlburt Heating AC and Plumbing, we know that plumbing emergencies can happen at inopportune moments. That’s why we always have a technician on call in the Altoona area. The faster we can address plumbing emergencies, the better. While our technicians are at the ready, it still takes them a minute or two to hop in the truck and get to your home. This is why we recommend taking a look at your plumbing system so you know where all your water shutoffs are located. 

If you experience a burst pipe that is flooding your home, you should shut off the main. This is the water supply to your entire home. If you close this valve, it stops the water supply. 

All fixtures and appliances have water valves as well. You should know where the shutoff valves are for your toilets, sinks, showers, water heater, dishwasher, and washing machine. 

If you have any questions about the location of the shutoffs, we would be glad to show you the next time we are at your home. 

Drain cleaning in Altoona

One of the most common problems we fix in the field is a clogged drain. Kitchen and bathroom drains can get blocked with debris. The first sign of a clogged drain is that it becomes slow. You’ll want to take care of it when you notice this so it doesn’t become a bigger problem.

You can keep your drains clean by:

Can you clean your own drain?

Mild clogs can be cleaned by homeowners but more severe clogs will require our professional equipment. 

If you want to try something on your own before giving us a call, you can use a drain snake. You should be able to find one at your local home and hardware store. The other thing you can try is an enzymatic drain cleaner that will help to break down hair, soap scum and other organic matter that might be trapped in your drain, causing the clog. If you use a drain cleaner, remember to store it in a safe location away from pets and children.

New installation services

We install, repair and maintain all aspects of residential plumbing. Whether you are in need of a new kitchen faucet or are doing a bathroom remodel or new construction, we are able to meet your plumbing needs. No job is too big or too small.

We install:

Water heaters in Altoona

Our team of expert plumbers can help you choose the perfect water heater for your home. We will make sure your new heater is sized correctly to suit your needs and safely installed in your home. 

We offer traditional water tank heaters and eco-friendly tankless designs. While more expensive to install, tankless water heaters are growing in popularity because of their ability to heat water “on demand” and their longer lifespans. Traditional water tank heaters typically last between 8-12 years while a tankless system can last 15-20 years. These are perfect for households with high hot water usage. 

Water treatment in Altoona

Hurlburt knows just how important safe drinking water is in your home. We offer carbon filters, UV light filters and reverse osmosis systems to ensure the water you drink is safe for your entire household. 

Do you need a water softener?

Much of Altoona has hard water. While hard water is safe to drink, it can cause problems for your appliances and fixtures. If you have hard water, you might see corrosion on your plumbing fixtures or stains on sinks and showers. 

Hot water heaters often suffer from the effects of hard water and have a shortened life because of it. Hard water allows a buildup of sediment to settle in the bottom of the hot water tank. This causes the tank to prematurely corrode and rust out. Eventually, the corrosion will make the metal crack and your water heater will start to leak. 

Installing a water softener is a great way to reduce the sediment buildup in your water tank and give your water heater a longer life. It can also improve dry skin and hair. 

Plumbing system maintenance 

There isn’t a whole lot that homeowners need to do to maintain their plumbing system. We recommend inspecting your basement and utility room often and look for signs of leaks. If you have never had a plumbing inspection done, you should make an appointment. We will take a look at your entire plumbing system and give you an idea of where it’s at. If we see problems that need to be addressed, we will discuss them with you before making any repairs. 

Our goal with preventative maintenance is to catch and address the small problems before they have a chance to become big ones. At your plumbing inspection, we can show you where all your water shutoffs are and create a plan for you to maintain your water heater, water softener and other appliances you might have.
