Plumbing tips that could save your house!
Schedule your check-up!
This is a proactive solution that could end up saving you thousands! The last thing you want is to come home from work or a vacation to find your home and personal belongings destroyed. A "check-up" is a simple way to help ensure this doesn't happen to you. We will assess your plumbing and/or HVAC sytem to make sure it is running at maximum efficency. The goal of our check-up is to address any potential issues before they turn into big problems.
Protect Pipes from Cold Weather conditions!
The best defense against pipe breakage is insulation. Insulating exposed pipes in a crawl space or in the garage with easy-to-install foam insulation will help prevent freezing and potential flooding of your home. Before winter comes, remove exterior hoses, and apply insulating caps to outdoor fixtures, as a frozen exterior spigot can damage interior pipes. Households with automatic sprinkler systems should clear standing water with compressed air.
Know how to stop the bleeding!
Ask yourself this question, "If my house sprung a leak would I know how to shut the water off?" If you don't, you should. This doesn't mean that you have to know your entire system, but a little knowledge will go a long way. Knowing where the main water shut off is in your home can help stop a leak, and prevent any further damage. Ask any one of our Techs next time we visit your home and they will be glad to answer any one of your questions.
