One of the most frustrating things that can occur in the kitchen is to turn on the garbage disposal only to find that it won’t work. Luckily, this is a problem that is often easily preventable with regular maintenance. Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating is here to provide you with garbage disposal maintenance tips that will help your disposal run better and last longer.
Garbage Disposal Maintenance Tips
Like any appliance in your kitchen, it is likely that you want your garbage disposal to run as long as possible. Here are some maintenance tips to keep it in top shape:
- Only run cold water through your faucets when you are trying to flush the system; hot water could melt sticky, gooey items, causing the clog to worsen.
- Periodically flush baking soda and white vinegar down the disposal. This will keep odors at bay.
- Periodically put rock salt and ice cubes into the disposal and then run the motor. This will sharpen the blades.
In addition to these simple maintenance tips, it is essential that you only run the appropriate items through your garbage disposal. Avoid these common forms of kitchen waste:
- Egg shells
- Potato skins
- Animal bones
- Rice or pasta
All of these items are not easily broken down and they can quickly clog even the most powerful garbage disposals. In addition, make sure you don’t attempt to put very large items through the system because they will often clog. Small particles are far less likely to cause backup within the disposal.
If you are experiencing difficulty with your garbage disposal, don’t let it cause you frustration any longer. Contact your neighborhood Boston plumber, Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating for a garbage disposal repair that will get things back in running order in no time. Give us a call today at 877-386-7454.
The benefits of radiant heat systems can be summed up in two words: even heat. In conventional heating systems, a cold indoor temperature triggers the heater to cycle on, blowing warm air into the space until the air reaches the temperature set on the thermostat, and then cycling off again. That on-and-off operation can leave you warm and cozy one minute and shivering the next. A radiant heating system from Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating lets you prepare for winter by ensuring that your family enjoys an even blanket of heat 24 hours a day.
How Radiant Heat Systems Work
Traditional heating systems heat air and circulate that heated air around your home. Radiant systems gently heat your floor or panels installed in your walls or ceiling. The heat radiates from the surface directly into your indoor living spaces. Installed by an expert Boston plumber from Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating, the radiant heat system uses slender loops of tubing filled with hot water to generate heat. Thermal radiation emanates from the heated surface, providing even heat throughout the space.
Radiant systems installed by Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating provide the highest degree of comfort for your home. They’re highly energy efficient systems that can reduce your heating costs by as much as 30% or more. Because air is not blown into living areas through a network of air ducts, you never have to worry about your family breathing dust and allergens that can have a negative effect on your family’s health.
Radiant heating is an unobtrusive system that operates quietly, never disturbing your rest at night as conventional systems can when they cycle off and on. Except for the degree of superior comfort that a radiant heat system delivers, you would never know that the system is operating.
As a leader in home heating system installations, Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating is pleased to offer innovative home heating solutions that keep you and your family warm and cozy while saving you money on monthly fuel and energy costs. Call us today at 877-386-7454 to learn more about the benefits of affordable, effective, and eco-friendly radiant systems.
Owning a home in an area prone to flooding or the occasional sewer backup can be a source of worry for many people. As your Boston plumber, Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating offers sump pump systems that protect your home from the infiltration of flood or sewer waters. Learn more about how sump pumps keep your home dry and how you can get one of these devices installed in your basement and prevent costly damage to your home and possessions.
How Sump Pumps Work
A sump pump uses electricity, gas, or a battery to move water from one location to another. In a home, the sump pump is usually situated in the basement where water is most likely to come inside. Most pumps are submersible and permanent, although there are portable pumps as well. The pump moves water from the basement through the waste water system to get rid of the water.
Benefits of Sump Pump Installation
Any basement can benefit from the installation of a sump pump. Whether a home is older a new construction, or situated near a flood plain or not, any house can experience a flood or sewer line backup. Installing a sump pump can prevent costly damage to items stored in the basement and mechanical systems such as the furnace and hot water tank. Flood prevention is also important for your family’s health, as flood and sewer waters can contain harmful parasites, bacteria, and viruses. Flood waters also bring with them mold growth, which has many adverse health effects. Installing a sump pump could even lower your homeowner’s insurance premiums.
At Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating, we keep your basement and the rest of your home dry and free of damage and odors. Our plumbing professionals install and repair all types of sump pumps so that you can rest assured knowing that your home is protected from the worst of what nature has to offer. When you need a sump pump system to prevent flooding and backup, we are here for you. Call us today at 877-386-7454 to schedule your sump pump service.

At Dun-RIGHT Plumbing and Heating, many of our customers have asked about tankless water heaters; more specifically, what they are and if they’re worth the investment. These water heaters only heat water when you need it, unlike standard units that heat and reheat the same tank of water. Tankless units have attracted a lot of attention for their ability to cut energy usage and utility costs. Considering that a hot water heater is the second highest energy-draining source in the home, tank-free water heaters are a thought worth entertaining.
As a premier Boston plumber, we’re familiar with the benefits of installing a tank-free water heater in homes and businesses. These appliances are an upfront investment, but the benefits offset the cost early on. Here’s why:
Greater Quantity of Hot Water
We could all use more hot water, and with a tankless unit, you can have your cake and eat it too. Since the hot water won’t run out, you can run as many appliances as you need at one time, and everyone can enjoy a hot shower in the morning. Consider that a 50-gallon electric water heater can take an hour to restore itself.
Standard tank units have a 6-year warranty and only last for 8 to 10 years. Tankless units, on the other hand, have a 10 to 15 year warranty and last up to 20 years.
With tankless units, you’re only heating water when you need it, which means you’re cutting down on energy and water consumption. These appliances are also often made from recycled materials, compared to standard tank water heaters that must be disposed of in landfills. The water is also cleaner and healthier since there is no rust and corrosion building up in a tank.
Cost- and Space-Effective
For homeowners looking to lower their utility bills, a tankless unit is a smart move. You save money by only heating water when it’s necessary, which can slash utility bills by as much as 30 percent. Since these appliances are not nearly as bulky as a traditional unit, you can have the plumbing installation done just about anywhere in the home, giving you back precious closet or floor space.
To learn more about what a tankless water heater can do for your home, call Dun-RIGHT Plumbing and Heating at 877-386-7454.
Professionals will often tell you that the first two things to begin to wear out in a home are the electricity and the plumbing. A failure in either of these systems can be bad, but luckily there is something you can do to about the need for frequent plumbing repairs. Consider signing up for the Royal Treatment maintenance plan from us at Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating. This plan may help to prevent serious complications with your plumbing in the future, and it makes the repairs you need less expensive.
There are many reasons plumbing systems fail. An annual inspection of your system can find minor problems before they turn into big troubles later. A tiny leak is much easier to fix than a large leak that causes water damage to the inside of your home. This plan also lets you move to the head of the line if you have a plumbing problem. That’s right, you get priority on your plumbing call over others, just by being a Royal Treatment member.
Once your problem does get fixed, a 10 percent discount on the service, and if yours was an emergency situation, you get a discount on that cost, too. Should you decide to leave your old home for another in the Boston-area, your plan moves with you to your new home. Saving money and being able to take your maintenance plan with you are just some of the reasons the Royal Treatment is such a popular option.
If you live in an older home with plumbing that always seems to have issues, consider this plan to save money on both standard and emergency repairs. If you have a new home, the Royal Treatment plan’s annual inspection can give you peace of mind that your plumbing system continues to operate as it should.
To schedule a plumber in Boston who will do the job right or to sign up for the Royal Treatment plan, contact us here at Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating at 877-386-7454.

In many cases, low water pressure in your home signals a problem, but your plumbing system can be fine and you may still have water pressure troubles. Low water pressure may be a result of where your home is located rather than bad plumbing. Being at the top of a tall building, at the end of a municipal water line, or being in a neighborhood with shared water supplies might result in low pressure inside your home. To solve your problem, call us at Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating. Our plumbers in West Roxbury can install a booster pump to improve the water pressure to all the fixtures in your home.
There are several benefits to increasing your water pressure with a booster pump. You can run more than one appliance at a time, such as a dishwasher and a washing machine. The water from shower heads and garden hoses comes out at full force instead of a slow trickle. By boosting the pressure of your home’s water, a booster pump can make your water fixtures and appliances run better.
To ensure that your booster pump is installed correctly, it should be done by one of our professional plumbers. The installation process takes less than a day and you can enjoy having water at your fixtures that flows at a normal pressure instead of a trickle. Compared to many other plumbing repairs, booster pumps are inexpensive, so why not have one installed in your home today? You can only benefit from better water pressure and water-using appliance operation.
If you are tired of having low water pressure throughout your home, we can help. Call us at Dun-RIGHT Plumbing & Heating today for a new water booster pump or any other new plumbing installation. Set an appointment by calling us at 877-386-7454.
