What We Do 

Electrical Engineering

The ninjaneers at FMA understand that a company’s specific electrical needs can change overnight. We design systems with the future in mind. They enable your company to grow and adapt to the challenges that growth and innovation always bring.

Those challenges might even include some of our favorite hobbies, such as development of service or restoration and outage management. We love assisting clients in any part of the development process: planning, design, budgeting, construction, and energy efficiency. We can also help with lighting, transmission and distribution lines; substations; and current system improvements.

In other words, we won’t leave you in the dark. (Sorry; had to say it.)

Why Is My Water Heater’s Relief Valve Leaking?

High pressure developing from your water heater can create a leak in your relief valve. There are a couple of reasons for this:

Water pressure that comes from the main water line is too high.

Thermal expansion (water that increase in volume when it is heated) causes a build up in pressure.

The easiest way to deal with a leaky relief valve is to call ClimateMakers to replace it!

Why Does My Hot Water Heater Not Work As Well In The Winter?

Even here in the Lowcountry, when it gets really cold outside, the water that comes into your home is much colder. This affects the hot water in your tank and it loses lots more heat when it combines with the incoming cold water. You also might have an accumulation of sediment in your tank that’s reducing your water heater’s performance.

How Do I Know How Old My Conventional Water Heater Tank Is?

All water heaters come with a label on it known as a “rating plate” that has a lot of the water heater’s information, including the model and serial number of the water heater. Although it does not directly show the age of the water heater, we use the serial number to help you establish the month and year of your water heater unit.

Will A Tankless Water Heater Work For Me?

Regarding tankless water heaters, there are very few situations in which they will not work (we can discuss your options). Most will work in areas where conventional storage tank water heaters would not. A good number of tankless water heaters are about the size of a briefcase and require about 120V, 60Hz and 3 amps of power – requirements most houses meet. Another very important factor is that tankless water heaters can help save you money on your water and electricity bills.
