Spring Cleaning – Don’t Forget Your Plumbing! (Part One)

Bluebonnets are blooming, and that means it's spring-cleaning time! In addition to wiping the baseboards and checking for dust bunnies, you might want to make certain your plumbing system is in tip-top shape with the following tips:

Inspect your toilet for visible for cracks and leaks. To find leaks you can't see use food coloring. Dye isn't just for Easter eggs – add 6 drops of food coloring to the toilet tank. If there is a leak, your bowl will have colored water in less than thirty minutes.

Make certain your toilet is flushing properly. If the handle is finicky and has to be jiggled just the right way, it's time to replace some parts. These parts are usually inexpensive and can save you money in the long run.

Survey your faucets for any leaks or drips. One faucet dripping three drips a minute wastes 1 kilogram a day, which is hard on both your wallet and the environment so give us a call.

Five Money-Saving Tips for Homeowners and DIY-ers

Texas weather is changeable. You could need to heat your house one day and air-condition it the next. The following recommendations may cost some money up front but will pay for themselves in both heating and cooling costs.

 

1. Install a programmable thermostat. These thermostats can be set to change the temperature when you are out of the house or sleeping.

2. Determine if our house is properly insulated. Walls, ceilings, and floors should be well insulated to reduce the loss of heat to the outdoors.

3. Go on a hunt for cracks and leaks. Caulk around windows and doors. Search for places where you have pipes, vents, or electrical conduits that go through the wall, ceiling, or floor. Don't forget to look under the kitchen sink and in closets.

4. Invest in some new windows. Insulating windows are known as double-glazed, double-pane, and Thermopane® windows. Storm windows also stop warm air from escaping and are set over your current windows.

4. Replace your old gas appliances with an ENERGY STAR® water heater or furnace.
