Step 1. Avoid Putting Chemical-Laden Products Down the Drain
When the kitchen sink or shower fills with water and it just won’t seem to go down, it’s easy to reach for the nearest bottle of whatever unclogging solution you have on hand. While this may seem like the fastest and simplest solution, it may just be a temporary fix that will do more harm than good in the long run.
While chemical-laden products used to unclog drains will do just that, these same products can eat away at the pipes that compose your plumbing system. Even worse, most of these products don’t get rid of the clog completely. In many instances, it will only make the blockage smaller temporarily. This means that you will be reaching for the bottle again soon, only to slowly disintegrate your pipes more.
Step 2. From Food Scrap to Cleaning Products, Be Mindful of What Goes Down the Drain
It can be difficult to be mindful about what can and can’t go down the drain in your home but it’s important to do so to avoid a seriously damaging clog in your home’s plumbing system. Make sure to keep as many food scraps as you can out of your sink even if you have a garbage disposal, and avoid letting hair build up in the shower drain. When clots form within the drains of your plumbing, it can increase water pressure and put unnecessary stress on your pipes.
Garbage disposals are convenient, but they need to be treated with care to prevent them from clogging and breaking prematurely. They need regular maintenance.

More Ways to Enhance HVAC System Efficiency
During the service call, your Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical HVAC technician will thoroughly clean your HVAC system. Before leaving your home, the Green Apple technician will turn on the heat, and let it run for a few minutes to make sure everything is working properly. During this time, it may smell a bit odd from disuse, but that’s normal. The real goal is to make sure that it is blowing out heat. In addition to scheduling preventive maintenance and staying on top of filter changes, there is more you can do to further aid air conditioning efficiency:
- Ensure you are using and programming your thermostat correctly. The preventive maintenance visit is a perfect time to check with your Green Apple technician if you are unsure about how to correctly program your thermostat.
- Keep all vents/registers open so heat will circulate properly throughout your home. Keeping vents closed can damage the ductwork and HVAC system.
- To help your furnace to do its job, you will also need to check the windows and doors around your home and seal air leaks that could allow drafts to enter your home. Caulk and weatherstripping are simple and inexpensive materials that go a long way toward reducing energy waste.
Taking preventive action is important for efficient HVAC performance and to help your system to live up to its expected life. Our skilled technicians at Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical NJ can provide service and advice that will guarantee comfort throughout the colder months.

HVAC Maintenance Tips for Pet Owners
Our pets are our family, they bring us joy, companionship, and love. However, with the wagging tails, playing and countless petting, pets can cause a few issues with air quality in regards to your HVAC system. Here are some HVAC maintenance tips to consider if you own pets.
Changing the HVAC Filter
Pets are like family, however, they shed like crazy. If you have any furry critters taking up occupancy in your home, then you’ll have to change the filter more often. Cat and dog hair, as well as dander, gets everywhere in your home- including the air filter! It’s also important to note that depending on the season, you may need to change the filter more often. For example, animals tend to shed more when the weather is hotter.
The air ducts main purpose is to transport the air throughout your home. Now, if the air ducts are dirty and filled with pet dander, this can make it relatively difficult to breathe. This is because the pet dander will continuously circulate throughout the air and your home. Making sure air ducts are sealed properly can remove the dust, dander and debris and keep it from circulating throughout your home.
Lastly, if there are gaps and/or cracks in your air ducts be sure to get them fixed. All that unwanted dander and dust can easily make its way into the ducts. Thus, the pet hair and dander will circulate throughout the home. Once these cracks are sealed and those portions of the air duct replaced, this will help stop the dander and dust entering the air ducts.
