Did you know that water heaters have to work harder in the winter? A lot of people don’t! As the temperatures continue to fall, the underground water supply also gets colder, forcing your water heater to work harder during colder months. This is why most plumbing companies, including yours truly, recommend that all homeowners schedule a water heater tune-up during this time of the year. At Go Green, we provide both tank and tankless water heater maintenance across Greensboro, NC, and other nearby areas, for your convenience.

To make this dream a reality, the American Cancer Society conducts life-saving research for new treatment options and works alongside lawmakers to create positive change.

They also provide a wealth of resources to keep the public informed on any and all news related to cancer.
At Go Green, we believe that donating to the American Cancer Society is the best way we can help to make a positive difference for those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or any other type of cancer. To make an even bigger impact, Go Green is interested in partnering with the American Cancer Society for a sponsorship.

With spring winding down and summer approaching, it’s an ideal time to have your air conditioner run as efficiently as possible. Here are some ideas that can let you get the most out of your cooling system:Continue reading “How You Can Reduce Your Air Conditioner’s Energy Use This Summer”
Summer is right around the corner, and if the mild winter was any indication, it’s going to be a hot one. For people without central air or with older units, dealing with the heat can be a real concern. Fortunately, the market offers a lot of choices for AC units in Winston Salem, NC that are both highly efficient and low maintenance.
Central air works by cooling the air throughout your home at a central location. Refrigerant gas is compressed and pumped through the system into your house; the gas absorbs heat from the air and lowers the temperature inside your home. Some systems can use the existing ductwork in your home to circulate the air into different rooms, while others do not.
Central Air Offers Many Efficient Choices
When deciding on a central air system for your home, you can choose from one of many different models, making it easy to find one that’s a good fit. For older homes, a ductless system is often a good option. These systems can save you square footage in your home, as well as the cost of installing new ducts.
If your home already has ductwork — as some do for furnaces — then you might want to consider a system like a heat pump. Heat pumps use a reversing valve to change the flow of refrigerant gas through the system. This allows you to pump either hot or cold air into your home, eliminating the need for a separate furnace and air conditioner.
Improved Air Quality in Your Home
Central air conditioning continuously circulates air throughout the different rooms of your home. While it does this, the air is pulled through a filter that cleans the air and removes impurities like dust, dander, lint, and other allergens. Some filters are even designed to remove microscopic allergens and other particles from the air in your home.
If you want to clean the air in your home even further, you have the option of installing an additional air cleaning component to your system. A global plasma system (or GPS) is a great example of this. The Global Plasma System is an advanced technology that uses bi-polar ionization to kill mold, bacteria, viruses, and odors in the air.
Cleaner in-home air can improve your life, and more efficient technologies and installation methods can significantly offset the cost. Anyone interested in AC unit replacement in Greensboro, NC should reach out to Go Green Plumbing, Heating, and Air today!

Spring is headed our way, and there are a few things we think you should never ignore if you want your plumbing system to function smoothly all year long. As a first-rate provider of tankless water heater maintenance throughout Summerfield, NC, and the surrounding communities, Go Green Plumbing, Heating and Air understands winter can leave quite the mess behind and in a service area like ours — where winter conditions and older pipes can be an unpleasant combination.
Inspect Your Sump Pump
If you’ve got a sump pump in the crawl space or basement, it’s imperative that you check and test it at the onset of spring, and about every three months after that. That way, you can rest assured it will work when you need it. Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t find out that their sump pump is broken or malfunctioning until after their basement has already flooded. Here’s what to do:
- Check the drain that leads outside. Remove debris that could block water from releasing from the outlet.
- Look out for any signs that your pump has tilted or the float valve has moved out of place.
- Examine electrical wires and battery for signs of damage.
- Run a test by pouring water into the pit until the float rises. Make sure your system operates as it should.
Clean the Roof and Gutters
Gutters and storm drains are critical components of your plumbing system. These need to be clean if you expect water to move off of your roof, preventing water damage and leaks. It’s paramount to clean your roof and gutters regularly, especially during the spring. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it safely on your own, call on the help of one of our professionals!
Check Your Pipes
Exposed pipes can experience a high degree of damage throughout the winter; Water expands as it freezes, and your piping is at risk of expanding and contracting. Look at any exposed pipes on your property for signs of cracking. If you notice any problems, call a plumber for a complete inspection. Right now, it might be possible to replace a section of the pipe as needed.
Test the Water Pressure
It’s possible one of your water pipes is already leaking, even if you haven’t noticed any water on your property. When you turn on a faucet in your house and see the water pressure seems to have dropped, it could be a sign of a leak or another issue that requires a plumber’s prompt attention.
