Though it is arguably the vastest system in your home when it comes to comfort and convenience, not a lot of people think about the overall state of their plumbing systems. In some cases, this can become a problem, since it makes it harder to detect leaks in a timely manner. There are of course signs you can watch for—water bills that have spiked without explanation, the sound of rushing water when no appliances are on, the sound of dripping behind a wall, and the sight of small puddles within your property where there shouldn’t be.
We encourage you to not only take the proper steps when you suspect a plumbing problem, but also read below about some of the most common plumbing questions we receive and our answers.
The ducts in a home are among those things that, despite being quite important, don’t get a whole lot of attention. The problem is that your ducts aren’t really things that you can afford to ignore all the time. Ducts that are neglected by their owners will have a tendency to develop a couple of different issues that will impact the efficiency of the climate control systems hooked up to them, as well as the health of the homeowners. One of the best ways to make sure that your ducts remain in good shape is to schedule duct cleaning for them. Let’s go over why duct cleaning is a good idea, and when you should schedule it.
Okay, so we’re coming to the end of winter, but summer’s still a little way’s off. You’re probably still relying on your heating system to keep your home comfortable during the day. So, since your heating system is working fine and you won’t need to use your air conditioner for a while, you don’t need to worry about any HVAC stuff right now, right? Nope! There is still one thing that you probably haven’t done for a while, if ever. Something that could both improve your HVAC efficiency and your indoor air quality at the same time: duct cleaning. Let’s take a look at why it’s such a good idea to have your ducts cleaned on a regular basis.
Don’t you hate that feeling where, just as though it seems you have everything running smoothly, something else breaks down? Or bursts into flames? Or blows up? It’s a common feeling for a lot of homeowners, and we want to do our part to reduce that feeling for you as much as possible.
Of all the things you could have broken down on you during the winter season, your heat pump is probably at the top of the list of the most inconvenient ones. The best way to make sure that that doesn’t happen is to schedule maintenance for it, even if it has already received maintenance this year.
Maintaining your heat pump system (as well as cooling systems, indoor units and outdoor units) by having a professional heat pump service can be a cost-effective way to keep your system running smoothly and keep energy consumption as low as possible, and checking off the items of your heat pump maintenance checklist can see you through the winter months.
We’re technically into the fall season now, but we’re still experiencing some pretty hot days. You might be using your air conditioner during the day for a couple more weeks before turning it off for the season. That means that you still need to be careful about any issues that might develop with the system. One of the first signs people notice that their air conditioner is in trouble is when it stops cooling properly. If your air conditioner isn’t cooling your home the way it should be, there are a number of things you should check before calling for repairs.
