Imagine your car was losing air from one of its tires. You should get that sorted out right away, shouldn’t you? If you don’t, it will lose more and more air. Eventually, you’ll be driving on the rim, causing damage to it and potentially other parts of your car as well. And you’ll be using more gasoline because of all the drag. 

Your air conditioner is the same. When there’s a problem, even if it seems quite minor, you should have it fixed right away. If you don’t, the problem will worsen, affect other parts of your HVAC system, increase your air conditioner’s energy consumption, and drive up your utility bills. Prompt AC repair is necessary to protect your air conditioner. Let us explain why.

Wastewater is simply one of the byproducts of modern life. And usually, you don’t have to think about it very often. How much wastewater does your home produce? Where does it all go? As long as things are working properly, you don’t have to know anything about it. But if there is a problem with your home’s wastewater disposal system, it can get extremely unpleasant very quickly.

Water that goes down your drains and is flushed down your toilets all makes its way to one exit point from your home: the sewer line. This pipe connects your house to the municipal sewer pipe, or to the septic tank if you have one. If it needs cleaning or repair, you’ll want to get it done as quickly as possible, before anything nasty happens. So what are the signs of a sewer line problem?

It’s almost spring! How’s your furnace doing? It’s been chugging along for months, working hard every day. It would be perfectly understandable if it was having a little bit of trouble by now.
