Turn One Off and Crank up Another One.

You are usually more than happy to turn off your boiler for a few months at the end of cold or cooler weather if you live in the far Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland.  You may have already engaged in the annual ritual of turning off your home’s boiler for the summer.  If not, here are some things to remember.

1.  Boilers can actually drain energy during the summer.
2.  Turn it on every few weeks or so for just a bit.
3.  When summer sadly ends don’t forget to have it maintained and tuned-up.

Whatever your situation may be, if you have a boiler in your home and live in or around Elgin always think of Tom’s Plumbing serving the far Northwest Suburbs with expert advice, maintenance, and replacement of your existing boiler.  Check out on the web for a myriad of services provided by Tom’s Plumbing.  Just call (847) 697-6444.

Plumbers that Upsell?

Is that really what you want?  According to Wikipedia, “upselling is a sales technique whereby a salesperson induces the customer to purchase more expensive items, upgrades, or other add-ons in an attempt to make a more profitable sale.”  Does that sound about as distasteful to you as it does to us?

If you think about it, you will find that you are being upsold every day.  Sometimes that is tolerable, even welcome ie: would you like a one dollar coke with that meal?  Is it really beneficial when it pertains to plumbing repair?  I mean, after all, didn’t you call them to fix a problem NOT try to get you to spend more money?

Our technicians are craftsmen…period!  They take great pride in the work that they do…not their wizardry at upselling.  We are Tom’s Plumbing, a tradition in the Northwest suburbs and the greater Elgin area for decades.  When you have a plumbing problem and want it fixed right away call us at Tom’s Plumbing at (847) 697-6444.
