How to Diagnose Well Pump Problems

“I have used New Era multiple times and I am more than pleased with their work. This past winter our furnace was not heating up at all. With having a one year old it was critical to have our furnace working properly. They came out the same day and were able to repair the furnace. Thank you to the New Era team for working diligently and professionally. We always recommend them to our friends and family”.

“We are very pleased with the work New Era Plumbing did to get our very old A/C unit up and running today. Charley arrived on time and was incredibly thorough throughout the process. He explained things to me multiple times to make sure I understood the issues, and gave me many options for fixing the problem. We are crossing our fingers that we don’t need heating and cooling again soon, but when we do, we will call them back. Thanks for a great experience!”
