Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating’s staff is dedicated to customer service.

Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating is a full-service plumbing firm that serves homeowners, apartment managers and building professionals in Alameda County. In addition to general plumbing repairs, the family-owned and operated company cleans drains; repairs, maintains and replaces water heaters (including tankless); provides trenchless sewer replacement services; and performs furnace repairs, tune-ups and installations with options for improved indoor air quality (IAQ). It’s also a supporter of energy saving products and can help customers upgrade their fixtures.

Owner Albert Nahman is celebrating his 35th year in the plumbing business. Mr. Nahman says he has built his company’s reputation by consistently delivering high quality plumbing products and services to every client. “We believe that a customer well-served is one who’ll stay with us and recommend us to friends and family.”

Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating features a unique program called the Peace of Mind Plan. For an annual membership fee, customers receive a substantial discount on repairs and a yearly check-up of all their plumbing systems. Mr. Nahman says the Peace of Mind Plan has helped many members ward off impending plumbing disasters. “Also, since the fee is applied to the cost of any necessary repairs, the club often ends up paying for itself.”
