What does HVAC stand for?
When should I consider HVAC equipment replacement?
You may wish to consider replacing your air conditioning or heating system if it is old, inefficient or in need of repair. Today's systems often more efficient than system manufactured more than 10 years ago.
How do I know if I have a sewage backup?
Signs of a sewage problem include: slow draining, toilet gurgling when you flush it, waster rising out of the drains, and more!
Why does my drain get clogged and how do I fix it?
Drain clogs in kitchens are caused by grease that builds up inside pipes. In bathroom drain pipes, blockages are often due to items other than waste and toilet paper that have been flushed. If you have frequent problems with your drains, you could have a problem with your main line outside that runs from the house to the county connection.
How long should my water heater last?
Your water heater should last more than ten years (depending on how well it is maintained, the water quality in your area, and how well it was installed in your home).
Does it matter if my toilet is constantly running?
If your toilet is constantly running, you are wasting water and money. If the toilet continues to run after the toilet is flushed, it indicates that some part of the fixture is out of order and needs to be fixed or replaced.
How can I prevent my pipes from freezing?
When the weather turns very cold, let the cold water drip from your faucets that are served by exposed pipes. Moving water is harder to freeze than water that is not moving (like when your faucets are turned off). Additionally, you should make sure your walls are insulated well and seal up any cracks or spaces where outside air can get into your home. Finally, make sure that your thermostat is set no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
