A very Happy New Year to all of you from Blue Mountain Plumbing and HVAC! As we specialize in heating, cooling, and plumbing systems in Thornton, Colorado, we provided five simple resolutions to ensure that you maintain a smooth-running home in 2015:
Give Everything a Proper Place: Tools and cleaning supplies are only useful when you can find them! Also, it is a good idea to save receipts of previous repairs or installations of heating, cooling, or plumbing fixtures for future reference. A simple labeled folder in a desk will do the trick!
Keep Up With Things As They Happen: It’s better to have a furnace, air conditioner, boiler, or pipe repaired at the first signs of trouble instead of letting it escalate into a bigger issue. Blue Mountain Plumbing and HVAC is staffed by qualified professionals who will help troubleshoot the issue and make the necessary repairs to ensure no further issues happen.
Stay One Step Ahead of The Seasons: There’s no better way to be prepared and safe time and money than by staying ahead of the curve! In late winter, it’s a good idea to think about cleaning and servicing air conditioning units so that you won’t be sweating it come summer. Cleaning gutters and blowing out your sprinklers in fall can be stressful with the ever-changing weather of Colorado, so schedule appointments in advance to ensure they are taken care of before snow starts falling. Dust can build up in furnaces when not in use, so it is a good idea to clean and replace filters before turning them on for the first time.
Generate a Cleaning Schedule That Works For You: Maintaining a home certainly isn’t easy; things break, stains are made, not to mention general cleaning and upkeep! Remembering the last time you changed your air filters usually isn’t the first thing on your mind, but a simple post-it reminder of the last date changed and the anticipated next change placed inside the furnace closet helps to remain consistent.
Reduce, Recycle, and Renew: Clearing clutter is the easiest way to stay organized and being sure that items are disposed of properly can minimize damage to your home. For example; cooking grease, oils, paints, fibrous and starchy foods, as well as bleach and too much drain cleaner can damage and clog plumbing and pipes. Finding yourself guilty of disposing several of the above products? Not to worry! Schedule a drain cleaning with Blue Mountain Plumbing to remove debris and assess any possible damage. Finally, replacing worn parts on heating and cooling systems, as well as your home plumbing, can reduce the chances of damages and leaks in the new year!
