Considering LED Lighting

Your lighting selection becomes more important during the shorter daylight hours of winter. With the increasing popularity of LED light fixtures we've seen some common questions among our customers. LED bulbs are energy efficient light sources that require some basic research in order to experience the full potential of the technology.

LED Lightbulb Selection

The LED lightbulbs we recommend using are manufactured by CREE. We've found that their quality and durability is far better than other brands. As a bonus, they come in almost any color or light temperature you'd want in or around your home or office.

LED bulbs are now being designed to fit almost any interior or exterior lighting need. However, use caution when you're choosing the size and style of bulb that can be adapted to an existing fixture. With improper selection, you run a risk of the retrofit not working or damaging the bulb and fixture. That can be quite costly!

Using Dimmers with LED Lightbulbs

With LED lightbulb technology there is still the problematic issue of light flicker which can cause headaches in sensitive individuals as well as damage the bulb and fixture. To help with this issue, use high-quality LED lamps (such as CREE), compatible luminaires and dimmers, and digital controls rated for use with LED lighting products. 

For reliable and energy efficient service we most frequently recommend Lutron products. 

Any of the experts at RW Kilby Wire & Water are happy to help you figure out the best LED light products that fit your location and budget. 

Orange Baptist Church Restroom Remodel

We recently completed for Orange Baptist Church the addition of three bathroom facilities for women, men, and family.  R W Kilby Wire and Water provided the plumbing, electrical, lighting, bathroom vanities, fixtures, and partitions as well as the ceiling installation, carpentry and painting for this area. 

 

We were invited to share in their dedication of the newly renovated facility and were honored to be included.

Our Electricians and Plumbers Get Lots of Training

We are pleased to congratulate two of our plumbers, Aaron Boxley and Jonathan Henshaw, in their completion of classes in Backflow Prevention Device Training and Cross Connection Training at Daniel Technology Center of Germanna Community College. As seasoned plumbers Aaron and Jonathan are now part of our team of Backflow Prevention Device Workers.

Backflow devices at cross connections in drinking water systems prevent contamination of the drinking water that may be caused from back-siphoning of potentially contaminated water flowing back into the drinking water supply. It is also important and required that backflow devices be tested for proper function annually.

We'd also like to congratulate two of our electricians, Brandan Kilby and Jay Murray, for successfully completing the Briggs & Stratton Home Generator Systems Field Service School related to the theory and operation of air-cooled home generator systems. This was Brandan's first training class in this area, and continuing education for Jay. Standby generators continue to be wise investments for many homeowners. We are committed to keeping our electricians up to date in training so we can continue offering the best advice and service to our customers.

In addition to our employees' success, Bo Kilby, Owner of R W Kilby Wire and Water, completed his Master's Level Plumbing, Gas-fitters, and Master's level Electrical Tradesman license re-certification through Germanna's Daniel Technology Center.

With our team of certified electricians and plumbers we look forward to building on our 40 years of service to Culpeper and the state of Virginia. We are committed to providing safe and professional electrical and plumbing services to our many customers. 

Standby Generator Systems for Your Home or Office

You do not need to be in the dark or without electricity again.  With a standby generator you will be able to continue using necessary systems during a power outage.  Your heating and cooling systems, water, and major appliances can all be sequenced to operate with a generator installation. 

What size generator do I need?

Sizes vary in generators, but we will help you determine the correct size based on the homeowner's need for emergency back-up power.  A site visit will help us help you determine what best suits your needs.

Where will it be located?

The generator installation must be located outside away from windows and doors within close proximity of the home's  natural or propane gas and electric service.  We usually provide a concrete pad or stone foundation per the customer's preference for the generator.

Will I have to go out in the cold, dark, or during the storm to operate the generator?

No, we prefer to set the generator installation with an automatic transfer switch so when your power is interrupted the generator automatically begins operation during a service outage.  This provides ease of operation for the homeowner and security in the event of a power outage when you are away.  You won't come home to a freezer full of spoiled, thawed food.

Contact us for more information about a standby generator for your home or office.  We will be happy to work with you in determining what generator best fits your lifestyle needs. 

 

Tankless Water Heater FAQs


We talk to a lot of customers about installing tankless water heater systems. Over the years we have installed quite a few on demand water heaters. To help you determine if this system is right for your home, we're answering a few of the questions we are most frequently asked.

What is a tankless or on demand water heater?

A tankless water heater is a system for heating water as it's used or needed.  Traditional water heaters store hot water in a large tank and keep it heated continually whether or not it is being used.  With a tankless water heater you eliminate the energy costs of maintaining a big storage tank of hot water since you are only heating water when you need it.

Do tankless water heaters really work?

Yes, it will provide years of good, dependable service with minimal maintenance required.  An on demand water heater can be powered by either gas or electricity, and will provide your home with a constant flow of hot water when you need it.  You will not run out of hot water again.

Where will the on demand water heater be installed?

The unit is wall-mounted and may be installed in various interior locations where venting to the exterior is available.  Mounting on an exterior wall is also acceptable.  The unit takes 1/3 the space of a conventional water heater.

Will I save any money with an on demand water heater?

Yes.  Depending on the type of unit you are replacing, the gas tankless water heater can realize a payback in 3 years by lowering your operating costs with its decreased energy consumption.

What brands do you install?

We can furnish and install any of the leading tankless water heater systems including units from Rinnai and Noritz. Each brand has specific benefits based on application. Contact us today and we can help you decide which one will work best for you.
