Plumbing Inspections Are A Must!

Plumbing - not a topic most sit around and talk about, but this modern convenience is something that is hard to live without.

When this happens it stops us in our tracks thinking, “Now what?”, “How much is this going to cost?”, “I don’t have time for a repair!”.

Don’t worry! Avoiding a plumbing crisis can be easier than you might think!

Do you understand what’s actually going on inside your home’s electrical panel?

We know it can be difficult to determine what you are looking at exactly, but once you learn it, you won’t forget! 

Since the utility companies distributes electricity to each circuit that supply all the lights, outlets, appliances, and all of our wired devices with power, we have the ability to shut off our home’s electric in our panel of switches and wires, EXCEPT for the currents that’s still coming in from the utility company.

Stay COOL This Summer!

Maintaining your air conditioner this summer is your key to a happy sun-filled summer! After being outside all day enjoying the weather, it’s always nice to come inside to a comfortable house to cool down and relax! 

During the cold months, our A/C units collect dust and dirt, making them less efficient, which turns into additional costs in utility bills.  😖 Also, the lack of maintenance done to your A/C unit could affect your heat pump and air handler to the point of breaking. At this point, you can say “bye bye” to that summer vacation!

Getting routine maintenance will not only save you money on energy cost, but it will also extend the life of your unit! ✅ Win-Win! 

It’s also a good idea to get it checked before heading out on vacation! With the curtains pulled, lights and fans off, doors locked, AND your A/C happens to break? That is the perfect situation for mold growth due to humidity levels rising. Yes, MOLD! Gross 🤢

Let’s prevent all of the above and put an A/C inspection on your list of to-do’s this Spring!

DIY Or Hire A Professional For Your Bathroom Remodel?

Spring is finally here! It’s time to take action on the remodeling projects you have been dreaming of all winter long. Now that you’re ready to get started, you’ll need to decide if you want to do-it-yourself or call in a professional. 

Is hiring a professional really necessary? Ask yourself these questions. How much extra time do you have? Do you know exactly what materials you need? What type/brand of paint is best? What are the best options for lighting? When it comes down to it, how are my DIY skills? Can I properly install new faucets, fixtures and electrical wiring that’s up to code? That is a lot to consider and the list goes on!
