Can I Use Store-Bought Cleaners for My Clogged Drain?
When you have a clogged drain, stay away from store-bought liquid cleaners. The chemicals in these cleaners are highly corrosive to your plumbing pipes, causing more harm than good. If you are looking for a quick solution to get your drains flowing again, use a plunger. However, to get rid of the clog for good, contact our Hudson Valley plumbers.
How Do I Get Rid of the Foul Odor Coming from My Garbage Disposal?
Grind orange or lemon wedges in the disposal to remove the foul odor. If this doesn’t help, try pouring one-part vinegar and one-part baking soda down the disposal and leaving the solution for an hour before rinsing with hot water. If this still doesn’t work, call Go Green Express Home Services.
How Do I Prevent Frozen Pipes?
Before the temperatures drop, make sure to empty all drain valves, store outdoor hoses inside, and insulate all exposed pipes. When the winter rolls around, keep your heater on and open all under-sink cabinets to protect your pipes against the cold. Letting your faucet run even just a trickle during the night can also help prevent your pipes from freezing.
How Do I Know If I Need Heater or AC Repairs?
Other than your heater or air conditioner not turning on, other signs that you need repairs include cycling frequently, poor airflow, banging or whistling noises, leaks, and strange smells. If the pilot light of your gas furnace is yellow instead of blue, contact our Hudson Valley heating technicians as well.
How Can I Reduce My Heating & Cooling Bills?
One of the best ways to reduce heating or cooling bills is to install energy-efficient systems. If your HVAC is already 10 to 15 years old or breaking down frequently, it’s time to seriously consider a replacement. However, if you have just recently installed a new heater or air conditioner, regular maintenance of the systems can help you reduce energy costs.
What Benefits Can I Expect from an HVAC Maintenance?
In addition to improving system efficiency, HVAC maintenance can help you identify potential issues before they worsen and reduce your need for a more costly repair. Other benefits of regular maintenance include longer equipment life, preservation of the manufacturer’s warranty, and improved overall home comfort. Go Green Express Home Services can schedule maintenance for your heater or AC today. Call us now to start enjoying all those benefits.
