As the warm weather kicks in, you might be busy thinking about your summer vacation and getting your closet and gardens ready for the warm weather. But before you get carried away, don't overlook your HVAC system before those temperatures rise. Here are important things you should include in your AC prep checklist:

Increase the Thermostat - Turn your cooling system to 85 F when you are out of the house. This way you can save a notable amount on your next energy bill.

Surge Protection - Power surges may occur while you are away. Sudden increase in electrical current can cause significant damage to your HVAC system. Before you leave the house in a summer vacation, make you sure to have your HVAC contractor install a surge protector.

Air Filter Cleaning and Maintenance - You probably leave your HVAC system set to run automatically and regularly. To prevent faulty equipment and extra energy costs, make time to clean the air filter and have HVAC service in Chesapeake, VA performed routinely. By doing this, you can find out if there are any issues that needs urgent fixing.

By following these few tips, you can have a worry-free summer. Contact Central Heating and Plumbing for a thorough HVAC system inspection and maintenance.

Plumbing System Issues To Avoid This Summer

The heat of summer across Virginia can send you to the shower a few times a day. It's a hassle when plumbing issues arise, but even more so when you really want water the most. Don’t let this spoil your summertime fun. Before the warm weather arrives make sure your plumbing system is in perfect working order to meet your water needs. Here are plumbing issues that can crop up during summer:

Clogged Shower Drains - Shower drains can't handle large amount of beach sand and dirt. This may result to clogging and pooling of water in the shower. You can remove minor clogs and remove excess hair from the drain cover that could trap debris. But keep the number of your licensed plumber handy just in case the clogging is severe.

Blocked Toilet - Your toilet is more frequently used in summer because the kids are all at home for break. Remind the kids not too much flush toilet paper or items that may cause blockages. A minor blockage can be dealt with a plunger but contact your professional plumbing service in Chesapeake, VA for bigger clogging issues.

Worn Down Washers - Expect additional laundry loads during this season from towels and swim wear. The pile of laundry can sometimes tempt you to overload your washtub to work double time. As much as possible, avoid doing this or you will wear it out. Check the hoses for kinks and leaks before you run it, otherwise you’ll deal with overflowing. To prevent overheating, you can move it away from the wall while it’s running.

Broken Sprinkler Lines - Your lawn mower might have hit and break your sprinkler heads while you tend the grass. Make sure you check your sprinkler heads before faulty sprinklers create huge fountains outside your house. Have a certified plumber fix your sprinklers and repair your broken water lines.

Cluttered Garbage Disposal - With all the frequent outdoor cooking and grilling, additional workload is extended to your garbage disposal. Avoid any rinds or big chunks of food going down the unit and watch out for stray utensils that may accidentally drop inside and break the blades. If your garbage disposal unit suddenly malfunction, have your trusted plumber check and fix it before further damage occurs.

Marjority of plumbing-related problems can be prevented and minor fixes can be done by homeowners themselves. But when major plumbing system repair is necessary, don’t hesitate to contact, Central Heating and Plumbing.

Regular HVAC Tune-Ups for Healthier Air At Home

We all thought our houses had safe and healthy air, but contrary to that belief, air contaminants is often higher inside the house rather than outside. This is due to poor indoor air quality brought about by an HVAC system that is not properly or regularly maintained.

Various microorganisms can thrive on dirty filters and can pose a threat to your family’s health. Poorly maintained HAVC systems also emit carbon monoxide that can be dangerous if it buildups in the house. Regular HVAC check-up and maintenance should be a top priority in any household. You are not only protecting your family’s health by performing this tune-up, you are keeping your home safe from dangerous incidents as well.

Have your hvac system checked and serviced at least twice a year by a licensed HVAC contractor. Moreover, a well-functioning unit can save you a lot in energy consumption and money spent. If your HVAC system is due for inspection and tune-up, don’t delay, contact Central Heating and Plumbing.
