Design Ideas To Consider:

Space is usually the determining factor on design options so let's being there:

  • Having a small bathroom with a bulky vanity takes up a lot of floor space, so you may want to change. It really shouldn't make the room look cramped right?
  • An exposed pipe design can help bring out a few more square feet. Bath towels can be displayed in a unique basket or bowl such as the one above rather than stuffed away in a vanity cupboard or closet.
  • Additional accessories might be filling a jar with bars of soap; an inexpensive yet visually appealing storage option.
  • Having a utilitarian washstand with built in towel racks would be complimented by a sleek Treviso 3-hole Pfister faucet. HGTV has some ideas about floating shelves making an elegant solution to utilize wall space with ease. And, for the small things such as toothpaste, lotions, razors and whatnot, a high-end medicine cabinet may add some design pizazz.

The question now is after seeing this video would you like to consider throwing out the vanity and let those pipes breathe? Consult us here at Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electrical, Inc. about the state of your pipes. As total professionals, it is our hope to help you replace or polish pipes that need a little TLC. The best of both worlds with beautiful plumbing products and functional design.

Be sure to look for functional, yet pretty storage ideas: Various sized baskets with lids may be a good option fro stashing cleaning supplies or toilet paper shelves should also be explored. Beautiful faucet fixtures and a simple yet clean sink are essential to pulling off your exposed pipe design.

Last but not least, remember to consider your floor. With more exposed, your floor must be flawless. No linoleum, please! Even inexpensive tile can look sharp.
Consider your walls. A fresh paint job may be all it takes to pull the look together.

Tips About Garage Heating

Winter Is Here!

Action Plumbing Heating AC & Electrical - Garage Workroom

As winter brings the snow and cold, many families decide to use their garages more, with creative solutions like workout or craft rooms, or even keeping your vehicles warmer in subzero temperatures; Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical Inc. is here to make that happen. This is a great article that will give you some advice on keeping your garage warm whilst observing important safety rules.

First, did you know that Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical Inc. installs garage heaters? We do! Along with complete furnace repair and installation with top notch state of the art equipment and professional technicians. Let's get started with more information...

Consider a fixed heater for your garage. Portable heaters can be very dangerous as they are easy to tip over and often use flammable fuels. Risk of fire is a big issue as well, as some materials that you use in your garage including gasoline, spray paints, and flammable chemicals can be dangerous if portable heaters becoming over heated.

Many of the best kinds of garage heaters include vent-free, sealed combustion and electric radiant ceiling panels just to name a few. You should try to avoid using fan style heaters. They have a tendancy to be a little less capable of heating larger spaces like a garage.

The best position of a new garage heater will vary according to what you use your garage for. Usually they will not be close to floor or any work surfaces that you are going to be using. A freestanding heater is probably not the best idea as this is likely to get in the way of your exit route or it could be knocked over. This is especially likely if it is on a table top. Instead, you should mount your heater on the wall or the ceiling. Many garage heaters allow you to direct heat as you need to. A good idea is to ensure that their heat flow is pointing towards the center of the garage, or towards any workbench area where you may be working. This will mean that you will get the maximum benefit from the heater. A radiant panel could be considered, as these can warm up your garage and help it to stay warmer for longer. They do take a little while to heat up so you will need to be patient.

Keeping The Heat Inside

In order to keep your garage toasty and warm throughout the winter months, make sure that it is adequately heated. Sometimes the first thing that most people may think of when they consider heating their garage is simply purchasing a garage heater. Whilst this will provide some heat, there are a few other things that you can do to help your garage to stay warm.

  1. Insulate – the first thing that you’ll need to do is prevent any heat from escaping from the garage. Garages typically were not built to be warm, so adding insulation will ensure that there is no draft. Simply stopping the heat from escaping from in the garage is enough to keep that space warm enough to forego having a heater. Using a high-quality type of insulation on the walls and the ceiling may be preferred.
  2. Choose the right heater – Select an effective in heater for your garage space. By measuring the size of your garage and deciding on how quickly you’ll want the garage to heat up, means a lot. You should also bear in mind that some garage heaters require ventilation. Our qualified Action staff can help you with these types of questions and a simple call for help is always welcome.
  3. Installation – Be sure to make all the necessary installation plans for your heater ahead of time, especially if you want a hardwired electric heater installed for example.
  4. Check the windows and doors – Always remember to ensure that the windows and the doors in your garage are also well insulated. Seal the gaps around the door and window frames as they are likely to cause drafts and will enable the heat to escape outside. If there are any gaps, you can use sealant or caulk to fill the gaps. This will keep more of the heat in and will help to lower the heating bills.

Garage heaters are a really good idea for your workspace no matter what you use it for. A garage heater will provide heat in the colder winter months when you need it the most to keep you warm, but they can also act as a way of keeping your garage and the things inside it from becoming damaged by frosty weather. Remember there are other heaters besides electric ones for you to choose from, but in general, electric garage heaters are the safest type. If you already have an electric supply in your garage, you will be able to choose from a wide variety of heaters.

Winter Salt On The Roads Takes It's Toll

Posted on Thursday, Jul. 13, 2017 at 2:53 pm Updated Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - 8:43am

As residents of the City of Madison everyone sees salt on the roads from the first icy streets we drive on. To protect our citizens, the Madison Water Utilities will face the answer to many questions in 2019 and well into 2020. According to the website at MWU, special consideration will be given to this serious challenge we all face living in the Madison area. Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical supports this endeaver by City officials to prepare us for the future of water in our entire region. We invite you to read this article and educate yourself on the upcoming efforts to answer the hard questions asked by our Madison community. 

MWU looks for solutions as road salt infiltrates a major West Side drinking water well. Take a look at the pictures below to see examples of too much salt. In the search for a solution for getting the salt out of millions of gallons of drinking water here in Madison, we look no further that Madison Water Utility for answers the rest of this year and into 2020.

Too Much Salt - I Want Action Now

About half of the road salt used in Madison is spread on parking lots, sidewalks and driveways as the picture shows. For a complete look at the history and next solutions for the future the main question to ask will be: How do you get road salt out of millions of gallons of drinking water pumped by a major municipal well?

That’s the question Madison Water Utility will be trying to answer next year during a study at Well 14 on University Ave. and Flambeau Road. The utility has set aside $125,000 in its 2018 operating budget to look at possible alternatives – everything from reconstructing the well to on-site desalination to abandoning the well entirely.

“By the end of the study, we’ll have an understanding of what the potential solutions are and what the potential costs are. And then we’ll have a discussion about what we think is the best way to proceed,” says Madison Water Utility water quality manager Joe Grande."

Well 14 is a critical water supply point for the city, pumping 750 million gallons of drinking water a year to homes and business along the University Ave. corridor. But it’s been showing increasing levels of sodium and chloride, the chemicals that make up salt. While not a health threat for most people, road salt in the water can have a big impact on taste. Madison Water Utility expects that levels will surpass the EPA-recommended threshold for taste in the next 12 to 15 years.

“We’re going to resolve the problem. Well 14 is one of our top producers,” says Grande. “I’m confident we’ll come up with a solution. It’s just going to be a costly one.”

Grande stresses it could be five to ten years before a long-term solution is built and in place.

Well 14 Disappointing initial study results

Earlier this year, the utility worked with researchers from the Wisconsin Natural History and Geological Survey to analyze the well’s bore hole. They discovered water was coming into the well primarily from two fractures in the sandstone aquifer – one just below the well's steel bore hole casing and one much deeper, about 230 feet below the casing.

“My initial thought was – you seal off that upper fracture and you’d be able to get better quality water because that lower fracture would have lower chloride and lower sodium,” Grande says. “But that wasn’t the case. We found that both of those fractures had similar levels of chloride and sodium.”

That means if the utility decides to reconstruct the well, it will likely have to pull water from far deeper below ground in what’s known as the lower aquifer, which has its own set of water quality issues.

“We would expect that there would be some level of iron and manganese in that water. And pulling water from those depths would be much more energy-intensive.”

Iron and manganese are minerals that occur naturally in the lower aquifer, but they can cause discolored water and stain plumbing fixtures.

A city-wide problem

Road salt is becoming a growing environmental crisis in Madison. Chloride from salt has been found in all five Yahara Lakes, and according to research from Public Health Madison and Dane County PDF , levels exceeding the Chronic Toxicity Criteria for small aquatic life have been observed in Dunn’s Marsh, University Bay Creek, and Starkweather Creek.

Salt in in parking lot

"This is a city-wide issue. Road salt has an impact on our lakes. It has an impact on our groundwater, and now our drinking water,” Grande says. “Well 14 is an indicator of things to come. It’s the first well that’s facing this kind of crisis. Others will follow suit.”

The City of Madison is launching a voluntary Winter Salt Certification Program -- the first of its kind in Wisconsin -- aimed at teaching contractors how to reduce salt use while maintaining safety. Salt spread on parking lots, sidewalks and driveways makes up about half of the total winter salt use in the city.

“There’s a heck of a lot of salt that’s being applied. Contractors can cut back their application rates by half and still be applying 5 to 10 times more than is adequate.”

A recent groundwater study funded by Madison Water Utility shows that some of the salt infiltrating Well 14 could be coming from a massive stormwater channel carrying salt-laden water into Spring Harbor from as far away as West Towne Mall. Madison Water Utility is partnering with City of Madison Engineering and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to install a monitoring station near Mineral Point Rd. and Grand Canyon Drive. The station will provide real-time precipitation, flow, and water quality measurements of that storm runoff.

“This new station will provide some baseline information to compare against an existing USGS monitoring station located at Spring Harbor,” Grande explains. “Now we’re kicking off this voluntary winter salt certification and all these other outreach efforts to try and get people to reduce the amount of salt they use. Hopefully we’ll be able to see indicators that the water quality is getting better in the storm runoff.”
