When the end of winter comes around, it is a perfect time to check up on your home’s furnace to see how long you can expect it to last. You might find out that the heating system was already on the verge of breaking down before you checked it, or you could discover that your furnace will most likely last until next winter season.

Either way, the general rule of thumb is that a gas furnace will work well for about 15 years, but an electric furnace will last about 20 years—if you maintain the heating system properly with annual professional inspections and tune-ups.

The backflow prevention device is a critical part of the plumbing of a commercial building. It does the job of stopping the flow of water from the sewage system into the freshwater system and the creation of a public health hazard. But backflow preventers wear down over time and will eventually fail. Because it’s hard to detect the decline of backflow prevention devices until they completely fail, they must have routine testing done to keep a building up to code.

If your commercial facility receives a municipal notification that you must have your backflow prevention device tested and the results reported, you can’t do the test on your own. The work must be done by a plumber with a special license. We’re the local contractor who handles commercial plumbing in Medina, OH you can trust for this service.
