Now that a new year is upon us, you must be looking forward to a great 2024. You might have vowed to lose weight, travel to new places, or spend more time with your family. But what about your home – where you’ll spend most of your year? Below are some tips and recommendations for your home in the perfect spirit of new beginnings. They say home is where your heart is, but a more comfortable place to live will work wonders.
Test Your Sump Pump
Sump pump systems help keep groundwater out of your basement. At least once a year, test your sump pump by filling the sump pit with water and ensuring the pump is pumping out the water.
If it doesn’t, be sure the sump pump is plugged in, and check the breaker. Also, make sure the outlet pipe isn’t frozen or clogged and that it directs water away from your home. Clean the hole in the discharge line and ensure the motor runs smoothly. Also, consider adding a backup battery to your sump pump so that it functions during power outages, which seem to go hand-in-hand with heavy storms. For more sump pump information, Click Here.
Install Outdoor Lighting
Add outdoor lighting to highlight a path, tree, or water feature or increase your property’s safety. Brothers Electricians are experts in helping you determine the right lighting solution for the exterior of your home. Don’t try to set up lights on your own. It can be dangerous, and a Brothers licensed professional best installs lighting. Please pick up the phone and give us a call to discuss your outdoor lighting options today, or Click Here for more information.
Check Your Smoke and CO Detectors
A broken or malfunctioning alarm can cost lives. Always make sure you keep your batteries fresh and the detectors clean. Remember, a smoke, CO, and fire detector system is often the only thing between you and a fiery disaster. Contact us at Brothers Plumbing, Heating, and Electric with any questions, concerns, or inquiries regarding smoke, CO, and fire alarm systems. Click Here for more information on our website.
Have Your Heating System Checked
We recommend you have your furnace checked annually. We perform a 33-point furnace check to ensure your unit is in good working condition and operating correctly. We can usually recognize an impending problem and take care of it before we have no heat! A dangerous furnace should only be serviced, installed, and repaired by a trained, licensed Brothers technician. Do not attempt to make repairs yourself, as that could lead to fires, explosions, injury, death, and damage to your property. If your furnace is on the fritz, immediately call one of our Brothers Plumbing, Heating, and Electric furnace experts. For more information about a Brother’s Furnace Safety Check, click here.
Check for Leaking Water Pipes
There are several signs of leaking water pipes. The signs also depend on where the leak is taking place in the system. If you are experiencing any of the following signs of water leaks, please contact a Brothers Plumbing professional as soon as possible before the problem worsens.
- Wet spots on walls
- Water seeping up in your yard
- Septic tank overflows
- Increased water bill without increased usage
- Low water pressure
