Learning About HVAC Contractor Services

Hello, my name is Winnie Slone. Welcome to my site about HVAC contractor services. The HVAC equipment in my home was in a serious state of disrepair after living there for several years. I was absolutely clueless about the maintenance schedule required for each of the components. As a result, all of the filters and ducts were clogged with dust and debris. My HVAC contractor helped restore the function of each of the components in the system. I want to share the information I learned throughout that process to help others avoid making the same mistakes. Please visit again soon to learn more.

4 Common Plumbing Problems You May Have In Your Home

Plumbing problems can be frustrating and inconvenient. This is especially true if you do not know much about plumbing. There are many plumbing problems you may have in your home, four of which are listed below. Some of these problems could cause a lot of damage to your home so you should contact a plumber to help you fix them.

Leaky Faucets

Leaky faucets are a common plumbing problem that many people have in their homes. Over time, this leak can increase your water bill. The leak could be caused by worn-out washers. If so, you could likely repair this on your own by replacing the washers. Other things that can cause leaky faucets include a corroded valve seat or a broken O-ring,

Clogged Drains

Having clogged drains is also a common plumbing problem in many homes. The clogs can be caused by things like soap, buildup of hair and debris getting down the drain. If the clog is in a sink or bathtub there are drain cleaners, you can use to clear the drain. If the clog is in a toilet, you can use a plunger. If you continue to get clogs the problem is much deeper into the pipe and requires a plumber to take care of. 

Constantly Running Toilet

Hearing a toilet constantly running is annoying but it also wastes a lot of water and will increase your water bill. A common cause of a running toilet is a problem with the flapper valve. It can be replaced easily and is something you can do yourself.  Other problems you could have is the toilet handle may be broken, the floating switch may be faulty, or there may be a problem with the long refill tube. If replacing the flapper valve does not work, you should hire a plumber. 

Low Water Pressure

There are many things that can cause you to have low water pressure when you turn on a faucet or turn on a shower or bath. This can make it difficult to get dishes clean, get yourself clean, etc. In many cases, this is caused by mineral deposits built up inside the pipes. There could also be a problem with the pressure regulator, and it needs to be replaced. It could be something easy such as cleaning the faucet aerator or the shower head. If you continue to have low water pressure, hire a plumber to help you. 

The plumber you hire can tell you of other plumbing problems you may have in the future. Contact a local plumbing service to learn more.
