Your plumbing experts in the New Richmond community

Hurlburt Heating AC and Plumbing has been serving New Richmond and its surrounding areas since 1959. While our company has grown a bit since then, we have maintained the honesty, promptness and expertise that built our reputation in the industry.

Whether you live in the rural corners of New Richmond or you’re right in town, our team is here to take care of all your plumbing needs. 

Hurlburt’s plumbing services

We service all aspects of residential home plumbing. We can handle everything from simple drain cleanings to complete plumbing remodels and overhauls. 

Drain cleaning

Blocked drains are one of the most common problems we see in the field. Most of the time they are a fairly easy fix but some clogs can get tricky and require specialized equipment. While we certainly don’t mind coming out to your house for a call, there are a couple of things you can do to avoid blocked drains.

 

  1. Use a screen in the shower to catch hair
  2. Avoid soap containing animal fat
  3. Use a strainer in the sink while washing dishes
  4. Run hot water after brushing your teeth to wash down toothpaste

Fixture installation

Whether you have plumbing fixtures picked out already or need some help deciding what would work best in your home, the team at Hurlburt is ready to help you install them.

We install and replace toilets, faucets, sinks, shower heads and bathtub fixtures.

Water heater repair and installation

Hurlburt’s expert plumbers have the knowledge and experience to find the perfect water heater for your home. Depending on your hot water usage, we can help you choose a traditional water tank heater or an eco-friendly tankless design. 

We repair all brands and types of residential water heaters. Even if we didn’t install it, our technicians can repair it. We can set you up with a water heater maintenance plan as well if you are looking to extend the life of your equipment.

Should you flush your water heater?

If you have a water heater with a tank, you might have heard that you need to flush it. Flushing your water heater will help to remove the buildup of sediment that settles at the bottom of the tank. This sediment can cause the bottom of the tank to corrode and eventually crack and leak. Unfortunately we can’t repair water heater tanks when they crack on the bottom.

There’s just one problem with flushing a water heater. Most homeowners don’t flush their water heater at all. If you haven’t flushed your water heater in a while, we might recommend that you don’t do it at all! This has to do with the buildup of sediment at the bottom of the tank. If it has been sitting for a long time (years), removing it now might actually cause abrasions in the tank and spring a leak. You might also find you have a leaking valve if you turn it on after all these years too! In that case, we might just tell you to leave it alone. While your water heater will have a reduced lifespan from the corrosion inside, flushing the tank on an old heater that has never been maintained could be the end of it. 

Water treatment options for New Richmond

Many homes in New Richmond have hard water. While hard water is not dangerous to drink, it can cause damage to appliances and fixtures. Water heaters especially suffer from the effects of hard water. The buildup of hot water can corrode your kitchen and bathroom fixtures as well. Luckily, hard water is easily treatable with  the installation of a water softener.

For clean drinking water, we can install carbon filters, UV light filters and reverse osmosis systems. 

New construction and remodels

If you are looking to install plumbing for your new home or remodeled space, you can trust the Hurlburt team to make sure the job is done right.

Emergency 24/7 plumbing repairs in New Richmond 

No one wants a plumbing emergency but if it ever happens to you, rest assured that our team at Hurlburt Heating AC and Plumbing will be there for you. We offer 24/7 emergency service for when a plumbing disaster strikes.

A plumbing failure can cause significant damage to your home. The faster we can address it, the better. While we always have a technician on call in the New Richmond area, it still takes them a few minutes to hop in the truck and make it out to your home to deal with the problem. This is why it’s so important that you know where your water shut offs are. 

If you have a burst or broken pipe, you should shut off the main. Every home has a shut off on the main water supply. Closing this valve stops the water flow to your home, preventing the leak from worsening. 

A leaking sink or toilet can be turned off with a simple valve on the waterline supplying the fixture. Water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines all have shut off valves as well. It’s a good idea to go around your home and find these water shut offs so you know where they all are in case you need them down the line. 

If you have any questions about the water shut offs to your home and appliances, ask us to show you the next time we are at your home. We are always glad to help.
