Understanding the basic components of your home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system is crucial. Thorsen’s-Norquist Plumbing, Rooter Service, Heat, & Air offers all the solutions you might need to ensure the proper functioning of these systems in your home. While we provide professional, reliable services, there are also steps you can take to optimize your indoor comfort.
1. Regular HVAC Maintenance
One of the most essential tips is ensuring regular HVAC system maintenance. Regular tune-ups can help prevent minor issues from evolving into major problems, thus saving you avoidable future costs and ensuring longevity and top efficiency of your HVAC system. This is a task best left to professionals such as our qualified team at Thorsen’s-Norquist.
It’s also crucial for homeowners to regularly replace HVAC filters. Dirty filters make your system work harder, consuming more energy, and leading to wear and tear. We recommend checking your filters monthly and replacing them at least once every three months.
2. Plumbing and Rooter Tips
When it comes to plumbing, prevention is key. Avoid clogs by being mindful of what goes down your drains. Stick to the rule of only flushing the three P’s (pee, poop, and toilet paper), and never pour fats or cooking grease down the drain. If you already experience slow drains or frequent clogs, our rooter service can get things flowing smoothly again.
Regular inspections of visible plumbing fixtures can also prevent significant problems. Look for signs of leaks, such as water spots or rust around valves, under sinks, and near appliances that use water.
3. Optimize Your Home’s Heating
Proper insulation makes for efficient heating. Check your home’s insulation, especially in colder months when heat loss can drive up your energy bills. If you need insulation to update, our heating experts can guide you on the best options. To ensure efficient heating, we also encourage regular servicing of your furnace to keep it running optimally.
Practicing these tips can help maintain efficient and functional systems in your home. But remember, whether you need expert HVAC maintenance, rooter service, or heating and air services, Thorsen’s-Norquist Plumbing, Rooter Service, Heat, & Air is here to help!
