It’s generally recommended to have your plumbing system inspected once a year to detect potential issues early.
Unusual noises, slow drains, low water pressure, and unexpected increases in water bills can all indicate a plumbing problem.
Shut off the water supply immediately and call a professional plumber.
Low water pressure can be due to several reasons, including a clogged pipe, a leaking pipe, or issues with the local water supply.
Regularly clean your drains and avoid disposing of grease, coffee grounds, or other potential clogging materials down the drain.
It’s recommended to have your HVAC system serviced twice a year – once before summer and once before winter.
Regularly clean and replace your air filters, ensure proper ventilation, and consider using an air purifier.
Your air conditioner might need a clean-up, a refrigerant leak, or the system might need to be updated and more efficient.
Most HVAC systems last 15 to 20 years with regular maintenance.
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends setting your thermostat to 78°F in summer and 68°F in winter for maximum energy efficiency.
Flickering lights could be due to various issues, from simple bulb problems to more serious electrical system issues.
This often happens when there’s an overload in the electrical circuit or you have a faulty appliance.
If your home has two-prong outlets, uses a fuse block or split-bus panel, or experiences frequent tripping, it might need to be updated.
A GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlet protects against electrical shock by shutting off the power when it detects an imbalance in the electrical flow.
Check your circuit breaker first. It might be a local power outage if it’s not the issue. Contact your utility company for more information.
