2 Easy Ways To Protect Your Plumbing

Keep a close eye on your water heater

A leaky heater can lead to lots of problems so you need to ensure that it is properly maintained. You can reduce the problems by draining it every season to avoid sediment that might lead to failure of your heater. The water pressure around the home should likewise be good enough so it does not become too much for the plumbing to handle.

Avoid allowing hair down your bathroom drain

This is among the things that might cause plumbing problems in the bathroom, and you can prevent them by being careful with what goes down the drain. A wet-dry vacuum can come in handy in grabbing any mess that could be surrounding the drainage surface before it goes down your line causing issues with your plumbing system.

Insulate And Clean Your Central Air

1 – Use a Programmable Thermostat With Your Central Air Conditioner

You can use this piece of technology to raise the temperature while you’re away from home, but make sure you don’t allow it to climb too high. When you do, your unit will just have to work harder to remove the residual heat from your home and this defeats the purpose.

2 – Insulate the Ducts

Ducts should always be insulated, and this is, even more, the case if they are located in crawlspaces or in attics. Spray foam, batting, or even rigid foam will generally do the trick and they can be sealed with foil tape. Reflectix wrap can be used in tight spaces, too.

3 – Keep the Compressor Clean

The compressor is the part of the unit that is located outside, and you’ll want to head out there once a week and after windy storms to ensure that there is no debris lodged in the fins and that there are at least 24 inches (two feet) of space cleared around all sides.

Central Air Is Beneficial If You Have Allergies

Instead of cooling only one room as window units are capable of doing, the central air conditioning cools your entire house by sending cool air through ducts in your home. The air is then released through vents into each room, cooling it almost immediately. Through return air ducts, ambient air is pulled from each room before passing through filters that remove lint, dust, pollen, pet dander and other allergens before releasing this new clean air into each room of your home via a secondary duct. Even the smallest pollutants in the air are trapped and prevented from being released into your air. The more money you spend on a central air conditioner, the more pollutants it will capture and the purer your indoor air will become.

HVAC Maintenance That Should Be Left To The Pros

Many homeowners wonder why they can’t just complete an entire tune-up themselves. The fact is a thorough tune-up requires skills, tools, and knowledge that only experienced Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical NJ HVAC technicians can deliver. Here’s what to expect when you call in the pros to perform annual HVAC system maintenance:

  • Check the thermostat: The tech makes sure the thermostat is calibrated correctly to ensure comfort in every season. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat installed, the technician may recommend one and install it for you on the spot.
  • Tighten electrical connections: Loose connections are dangerous and can cause improper operation that shortens the equipment’s lifespan. The technician also measures voltage and current on equipment motors.
  • Lubricate all moving parts: Lack of lubrication causes high amounts of friction in the system. This can cause it to overheat and break down. Adding lubrication helps parts move smoothly against one another, decreasing electricity use and lowering your energy bills.

Use This Checklist To Save Time & Money

Check for Leaky Faucets
Most of the time, leaky faucets are an easy fit and can save you significant money on your water bill over time.

Check for Hidden Toilet Leaks
That toilet leak could be costing you a fortune, and you may not even know it because toilet leaks are often hidden unless you know what to look for. A pro tip: Add a few drops of food coloring to your toilet tank, and if you see it in the bowl 30 minutes later, you probably have a leak. Fix the problem with a call to your Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical NJ plumber.

Make Sure Your Toilet is Flushing Properly
If you need to push down hard or jiggle the handle, you probably have some worn parts and may need to replace them.

Pour Water into Infrequently Used Drains
This will keep them functioning as intended. If they drain slowly, snake it.

Clean Drains, Gutter, and Downspouts Around Your Home
And, be sure to maintain them on a regular basis. Rain paired with more active wildlife and pests than in the winter months means there are more things happening that could potentially cause issues with drainage.

Check Exposed Pipes For Signs of Leaks
Spotting a leak early can save you thousands of bucks in plumbing repairs.

If you try any of these simple plumbing tips and notice problems, you may need to call a Green Apple Mechanical plumber. Remember, spending a few bucks on a plumber early is a great way to ensure you’re not spending large sums of money later on costly repairs.

Improve Air Quality With Central Air

It Helps With Air Quality

A central air conditioner is great for people with allergies or concerns about contaminants in the air because it is hooked up to your furnace’s air handler. This means that the air is actually getting pumped through the filter. The cool air that your home is receiving has been filtered and freshened.

A window unit not only doesn’t properly filter the air but because of its design, it actually lets warm air back into your home, not to mention anything else that slips past the seal.

Improve Your Home By Adding Central Air

  • Improved aesthetics: A central A/C’s working parts are on parts of your property instead of in a window or on a wall. You maintain the view from the inside your home and the property’s curb appeal at the same time.
  • More space: Ductless and window air conditioning units take up space on a wall and window. For the units to operate well, the space surrounding them must remain clear. Central A/C units do not take up any living space inside your home.
  • Quieter: Central air conditioners are quieter than other cooling units because the noisiest components—the fan, compressor, and condenser—are in the outdoor cabinet.
  • Convenient to operate: Instead of a series of knobs and buttons, you control a central A/C unit with a user-friendly thermostat. Programmable thermostats make using your HVAC system even simpler because you can set different temperatures for specific times of day, which saves energy.
  • Improved comfort: Instead of cooling one room, a central air conditioner evenly cools all the rooms in your home.
  • Improved indoor air quality: The air filters in A/C units remove many pollutants and allergens from the air.
  • Increased home value: A well-maintained central A/C may increase the value of your home.
