Some signs you may have leaky ducts include:
- High summer and winter utility bills
- Rooms that are difficult to heat and cool
- Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
- Tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system

Many of the problems people have with their drains can be traced back to the day the system was installed. A subpar drain system installation can give rise to major issues down the road.
Trust your plumbing experts at Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical to properly service the drains in your home. Our team of professionals has been installing and repairing drains in the MetroWest Boston area for over 30 years.

ERVs and HRVs
An airtight home makes it difficult to keep your home adequately ventilated. Our solution is an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) that can precondition fresh air coming into your home while venting out the old, stale air. An ERV system can increase your indoor comfort by keeping the air in your home fresh throughout the year. It also takes some of the strain off your HVAC system, potentially saving it from excessive wear and tear that may otherwise develop.
A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) removes heat from the indoor air as it passes through and transfers it to the crisp outdoor air coming into your home. You can enjoy a constant influx of fresh air without paying more to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature year-round.

Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
The comfort of your home not only depends on the air temperature but also the amount of moisture in the air.
Cold weather typically means dry, uncomfortable air. Dry air can cause respiratory problems as well as damage wood furniture. Whole-house humidifiers emit water vapor to increase the humidity in your home.
On the other hand, hot weather can mean thick, humid air. This can lead to condensation on your windows, mold spots on walls or ceilings, and blistering paint or peeling wallpaper, just to list a few issues. A whole-house dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air in your home.
Improve your indoor air quality, as well as positively impact the overall health of your family and the health of your home. Controlling the humidity in your home will help protect not only your respiratory system but also your wood floors, furniture, and artwork.
Indoor Air Quality
A well-insulated home can help with your energy bills by keeping a constant temperature, but that also leads to the same air being recycled through your home each time you run your air conditioner or furnace. Be sure you have proper filtration in place to prevent allergens and bacteria from circulating through your air.
Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical can help you breathe easier. Call us today at 978-431-2906, and we can put together a plan for your home.
At Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical, we put you and your home first. Our expert plumbers get the job done. Whether it’s your toilet, sink, bathtub or shower, new construction, or a kitchen or bathroom remodel, we are here for you. From outside to inside, basements to attics, our plumbers are the very best.
Radiant Floor Heating
This energy-efficient system is a popular choice with retrofits and new construction projects in Massachusetts because of the benefits it offers. Radiant floor heating is practically noise-free and easy to maintain. Unlike a forced-air system, it does not stir up dust or other particles while distributing heat through ducts and vents.
Our highly trained and experienced professionals at Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical thoroughly understand the appeal of radiant floor heat and the warmth it can add to your home in the MetroWest Boston area.
Sump pumps work to remove water that accumulates in your basement. The pump connects to your main drainage system, or it may simply direct the water into a subsidiary drain that travels away and downhill from your home.
Our team at Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical are experts at installing, repairing, and maintaining sump pump systems. Ignoring water that starts pooling in your basement can lead to health problems—and even home structural issues.
Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical is happy to offer our Littleton, MA, customers two options when it comes to water heaters.
Many people are familiar with the traditional tank water heater. It works by storing water in a tank and keeping it heated to a preset temperature.
With a tankless water heater, there is no tank to store water. Instead, water is heated when you need it. Let the water heater professionals at Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical help you determine which type of water heater is best for your situation.
Zone Control Systems
A zone control system allows you to directly control the heating and cooling simultaneously in different parts of your Massachusetts home. This system allows you to maximize your home comfort and efficiency by specifying separate temperatures for individual rooms or areas.
The two biggest benefits to this system, aside from your comfort, are energy efficiency and cost savings. Count on your experts at Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical to install the perfect zone control system for your MetroWest Boston home. Keeping you comfortable is our business.

Sump Pump Replacement in Littleton, MA, 01460
“We have a sump pump that lives in an 18 inch hole under the steps of our bulkhead, and it has kept our basement dry for 19 years. But according to the apparently immutable Law of Nature that plumbing emergencies only occur in the evening of a holiday weekend, we discovered that the pump had died (it was preventing us from flipping its circuit breaker into the “On” position) just before the start of Labor Day weekend—and just before the forecast was calling for a solid week of daily thunderstorms.
After the summer drought, the sump pump hole was bone dry, and it didn’t seem likely to me—or the folks at Basnett—that even a week of 1/4” to 1/2” daily rain accumulations would be enough to bring the level of the groundwater up by 18 inches in a week. So I scheduled the replacement of the pump for Basnett’s first regular (as opposed to emergency) appointment—a week from Labor Day, and a couple of days after the rain was finally expected to stop.
But I forgot to take into account that the reason our sump pump was so important was that we have a spring running under our foundation—from the corner where the sump pump is to the opposite corner where the furnace and water heater are. And regardless of how much the overall level of the groundwater rises, a significant amount of any new rainfall flows directly into this spring.
So after the first afternoon/evening of heavy thunderstorms, our sump pump hole had filled up to less than 6 inches below the surface of our basement floor. An even heavier rain storm was forecast for the next afternoon. It was now clear that without a new sump pump, we not only weren’t going to keep our basement dry until our regular appointment, but we might not make it through the next day.
Unfortunately, “the next day” was Sunday of Labor Day weekend. So I called Basnett back on Saturday evening to see if there was ANY way we could get an emergency appointment to have our pump replaced sometime on Sunday. And they asked me if 8 AM was OK.
The person who Basnett sent to spend his holiday Sunday morning swapping out our sump pump was Bob DuBuque. We had, of course, jumped on the 8 AM time slot, but that left barely an hour before my wife and I were supposed to be at choir rehearsal for that morning’s church service—which I had made Basnett aware of.
So the first thing that Bob did that was over and above was to arrive at 7:30 AM (after warning us with a text/email), which allowed him to finish swapping out the sump pump while still allowing us to get to church on time—despite the fact that because the sump pump lives under our bulkhead stairway, replacing it requires removing two of the steps, working from UNDER the stairway, and then replacing the steps after the pump is finished.
Despite the time crunch, Bob was personable and friendly throughout his visit, clearly explaining what needed to be done, and patiently answering all of our questions.
Before he left, Bob informed us that he was a bit concerned about the 7-year-old check valve above the pump. It had dripped when he first turned on the new pump. But it had stopped dripping upon further testing, so he hoped it would be OK. Unfortunately, with the ongoing rain continuously filling the hole with water and the pump running almost continuously to keep the level of the water below our basement floor, the pump shifted slightly inside its hole over the next 24 hours, and the slight angle from vertical that the pump ended up at put a strain on a weak spot in the check valve’s seal—which had presumably caused the original drip when Bob first turned on the new pump. So while the new pump kept our basement dry for the next 24 hours, by Labor Day evening the check valve was spewing water all over the inside of our bulkhead every time the pump ran. Which led to my Labor Day evening call to Basnett to see how soon they could get someone here to diagnose and fix this new problem.
So Bob came back, at noon on Tuesday, to once again remove our bulkhead steps, figure out why the pump had shifted, and discover the weak spot in the check valve seal that the shift had worsened. He installed a new check valve—and charged us only for the cost of the valve, NOT for the second emergency visit. And last, but not least, when Bob reassembled our bulkhead steps for the second time, he used special cement screws that would anchor the steps to the sides of the bulkhead, thus rendering them significantly more steady than the wobbly state they had been in when he first arrived.
My wife and I have lived in our house for 32 years, and for most of that time, we had our “regular plumber”, on whom we relied for most of the many plumbing issues that a 60-year-old house accumulates in that number of years. But on the occasions when our plumber couldn’t make it in time when we had an emergency, we had always called Basnett. Their prices were higher—particularly for emergencies—but they were rock solid reliable, NEVER failing to send us help when no one else could, and they invariably did good, durable work.
But our long-term plumber retired during COVID, and we decided to use our need this summer to replace our water heater (and the leaking expansion tank over it) to put out bids to four area plumbers—looking not just for someone to replace our water heater, but for someone to be our new “regular plumber”. Basnett was the only one of the four with whom we had previously done business. Their prices are high—though not the highest of the four. But we had experience of their reliability—which was further put to the test by both our evacuation pump and our sump pump failing during the time we were putting out bids for the water heater—both of which we turned to Basnett to help us with. In the end, our experiences with Basnett’s handling of our two summer emergencies clinched our decision to make Basnett our new “regular plumbers”.
In fact, the last thing Bob did for us during his first visit was to recheck the original estimate we had received for the water heater and expansion tank when Phinias Muchirahondo and Wayne Lambert came to replace our failed evacuation pump last spring. That initial estimate had expired while I was seeking estimates from the other three local plumbing companies for comparison. Bob’s re-estimation of that job was as thorough—and again accompanied by a patient answering of all our questions—as his work on the sump pump had been. And Phinias is coming tomorrow to install the water heater and expansion tank.
Meanwhile, thanks to Bob, we now have years to come of not having to worry about our basement flooding… Except when the storm kills the power. Hmmm… Bob mentioned that Basnett was considering getting into the business of installing generators—and they have their own electrician to work with the plumber to install it. Maybe that will be NEXT summer’s project…”
