    Easy Ways to Save Water This Summer

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Are you looking for an easy way to save money on your water bills this summer? First, be sure that your toilet isn’t leaking by putting a drop of food coloring in the tank. If you see color in the toilet bowl a few minutes later and you haven’t flushed, call a plumbing service to get the leak repaired. A leaky toilet can waste an astounding 200 gallons of water a day, so call a plumber as soon as possible. Watch the video clip for more tips on how to save water this summer.

    Your Guide to Furnace Maintenance

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Did you know that the best time to schedule furnace maintenance is in the spring or fall? During this time, demand for HVAC service is relatively low, and if a problem is found in your system, you’ll have plenty of time to get it fixed before winter. To learn more about why furnace maintenance is important and what it entails, read on.

    The Importance of Furnace Maintenance

    Furnace maintenance extends the life of your furnace and reduces the likelihood that you will need a major furnace repair. It also ensures that your heating system performs well during the winter, and that it achieves optimal fuel efficiency. In all, annual furnace maintenance saves you money while making your home more comfortable.

    Cleaning the Furnace

    Because dirt is a furnace’s biggest enemy, an HVAC repair specialist will thoroughly clean the three main components of the furnace: the blower, the motor, and the filter system. The entire blower system will be cleaned both with a vacuum and a small brush. Then the belts, pulleys, and motor will be wiped down. The technician will replace the furnace filter as well; but for optimal efficiency and performance, you must replace the filter once a month during heating season.

    Lubricating the Furnace Motor

    The furnace motor can overheat fairly easily if it isn’t cleaned. If your furnace motor has an oil port, it must also be lubricated annually. All it needs is a few drops of 10-weight non-detergent motor oil at each port.

    Belt Adjustment or Replacement

    When the HVAC technician cleans and lubricates the furnace, he will inspect the belts on the blower and motor. If they are frayed or worn out, he will replace them. If the furnace appears to be making a strange noise because of a misadjusted fan or drive belt, the technician will tighten the belt slightly to fix the problem.
