Do you have a few household leaks or other plumbing issues? How is your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system working? Whether you’re experiencing problems with either or both of these essential systems, it makes sense to take care of them as soon as possible.
Needless to say, when you postpone contacting your local plumbing and HVAC company to take care of these problems, they may worsen. That noisy water heater? It could be about to burst or be in its final days. That leak in your kitchen sink or bathtub? It could be costing you gallons of water day after day after day.
Were you aware, for example, that a single annoying leak could fill up 90 gallon-size buckets or more every day? Furthermore, you could also save around 10% on your water bill by having a plumber take care of that leak. Since that leak may to the sign of a more significant issue, wouldn’t you want to know?
When was the last time you had your HVAC unit inspected? What about routine maintenance that includes changing those air filters?
If your HVAC system breaks down often, it may not be properly installed. And yes, you may want to have it replaced, too, and with a more energy-efficient model.
Energystar.gov recommends that HVAC filters should be changed at least every 1 to 3 months. You may need to change them more often, however, if you live in a dusty area. If you have pets, children, and a lot of activity going on, this may also necessitate changing them more regularly.
Have you noticed that your house is on the drafty side? Once you have this situation addressed, your HVAC system should work more effectively. Those cracks and other openings will let the hot air in and the cool air out during the summer. Basically, your energy efficiency may decrease up to 30%. Your bill, however, may rise considerably.
If you don’t think these repairs are in the budget, then it’s important to know that there are affordable plumbers near you. Whether you have a clogged drain, a leaky faucet, or your HVAC unit is on the fritz again, these and other issues can be taken care of by the best HVAC company and plumbers.
