Come Home To A Home That Works

Try our 30 Point Preventative maintenance inspection. We will come to your house and complete our checklist and recommend any items that may need your attention. From cleaning your dryer vent to checking for water leaks, we can help you come home to a house that works.

Why? The heating element of a water heater is at the bottom of the tank. If this heat is being blocked by settled sediment, calcium, and minerals, then your water heater has to work much harder to do its job. The accumulation of sediment can lead to some major problems — you may even start to see it come out of your faucets. After two to five years, sediment can cause even more serious issues: pipe bursting, loss of water pressure, or even the breakdown of the tank itself.

Why? Lint, dust, and pet hair can build up in your dryer hose and vent duct, reducing air flow and backing up exhaust gases. Thoroughly inspecting and cleaning your dryer vent every year is a must. Beyond reducing the risk of fire, you’re putting money back into your wallet by improving the dryer’s efficiency. A neglected dryer vent can also double or triple the time needed to dry your clothes, as the moist, hot air cannot properly escape.

Why? Your HVAC system will become strained if your air filters aren’t changed out regularly. The filters become clogged as they trap particles such as dust and allergens, forcing your fan to work harder to blow air through them. This can cause long-term damage to your HVAC system and reduce its lifespan.

Why? Replacing your refrigerator water filter makes certain that your drinking water is safe and free of contaminants.

Why? Good air flow is critical for your AC’s condenser coils. For condenser units, the most common threat is a buildup of yard debris on the fins, often in the form of grass clippings, fallen leaves, twigs, and pet hair. If the coil is dirty or if plants or other objects are too close to the conditioner unit, the fan in the outdoor coil can’t move enough air. This places a strain on the condenser’s ability to transfer heat, reducing your AC’s energy efficiency and raising your electricity cost.

Why? Inspecting for leaks ensures that you don’t suffer from water damage or overpay on your water bill.

Why? Ensuring your home is prepared in the event of disaster is often as simple as replacing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors every year. It’s a crucial step in protecting your family and your property.

Why? Clogged drains not only test your patience but can also cost a hefty plumber’s fee if left to build up further.

Why? Inspecting for leaks ensures that you don’t suffer from water damage or overpay on your water bill. Slow drain leaks can ruin cabinetry and cause mold and mildew in your home.

Why? By detecting dangerous current flow and instantly shutting off power, ground fault circuit interrupters save hundreds of lives each year. But after 10 years or so, the sensitive circuitry inside a GFCI wears out. And usually the test button on the GFCI doesn’t tell you there’s anything wrong

Why? Appliance lights are notoriously hard to remove and a hassle to replace. Without proper light, it’s easy to misjudge and overcook or undercook your food. While not the most serious issue on this list, it can be a major hindrance in the kitchen and elsewhere.

Why? Regularly sanitizing your washer and dryer will remove unwanted odors and reduce the spread of pathogens in your home. Hot water and detergent alone is not enough to kill certain organisms and pathogens that harbor infectious diseases.
