My water isn’t as hot as I want it. Is there a problem with my water heater?
Obvious signs of an issue, including strange smells, noises, or leaking around the unit, may indicate a serious issue with your water heater. If you are not getting enough hot water, or if the water is not hot enough, you may need to seek out a professional from Casteel to diagnose and repair the problem.
What should I be doing to avoid a clogged toilet?
The easiest thing to do to prevent clogs is to ensure nothing that should not be flushed does not get flushed. This includes and small objects as well as feminine hygiene products, baby wipes, and paper towels. In addition, cut back on using excess toilet paper.

You may have an overloaded circuit or you may be experiencing a surge in your electrical system. Remember that electricity is very dangerous and should only be handled by a trained professional.

How can I tell if I need professional air conditioning and heating service?
We highly recommend that you schedule a service with our trained professionals whenever your heating, air conditioning or ventilation systems are not working properly.
