School’s out and here comes the summer break. Your home is not on vacation, though, and you need to make sure it is ready. For starters, because your kids are on summer break and are home more often, they use more water. The increased usage can put a strain on your home’s plumbing system and shorten the lifespan of pipes, fixtures and appliances.
To make sure your home’s plumbing system is ready for increased workload, a good place to start is to let our experienced professionals give your plumbing a once-over. Regular plumbing maintenance and service can help guarantee your pipes, drains, toilets and faucets are in good working order and ready to go. Also make sure to check and service your home’s water heater – it will also come under attack with increased washing machine shower usage.
With the summer season also comes an increase in backyard barbecues and cookouts. Making sure your grill is cleaned and in good working order is important and so is upgrading your grilling system. If you use a gas grill, a nice upgrade is installation of a dedicated gas line to your grill. The dedicated line can also fuel fire pits and outdoor kitchens appliances and will be more efficient in its gas usage. The need for propane tanks, which need to be maintained and refilled periodically, is also eliminated with a new gas line. Don’t put it off – get it done now before the Fourth of July and other summertime events.
