Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips From The Pros At Gordon AC & Plumbing

Most homeowners don't think much about their AC unit until that first sweltering, sticky day of the year. Then the only thought is about flipping the switch to get the cool air circulating throughout the house. But without some regular TLC, you could be shortening your air conditioning system's life and paying too much for the level of comfort you are getting from the system. But with a few simple tasks on your part and regularly scheduled service from your HVAC pros, your air conditioner will serve you well for many years to come.

All You Need To Know About AC Warranties

Very few homeowners plan on or budget for emergency air conditioner repairs. But then again, most also never really think about their AC or caring for it until it is too late. Only on the hottest day of the year, right after your AC stopped working, do you begin to wonder if your unit is still under warranty. The thought of a massive repair bill is upsetting, but you can't live with no AC in the summer. You call for emergency service and just hope that you have some kind of warranty that will help you out with the needed repairs.

Are Your Plumbing Pipes Ready For Winter?

With winter just around the corner, it can be easy to get distracted by the upcoming holidays, busy schedules, and life’s hectic moments. But it is crucial to invest a few minutes in inspecting your plumbing pipes and fixtures before the cold weather storms in. Especially if you have recently moved into a new home and are not sure how the plumbing lines are protected against the cold. The hours or so that you invest in the process could save you some hefty expenses later in the season and a few annoying days with no functioning water service in your home.

All You Need To Know About Tree Root Damage To Your Home’s Pipes

Most homeowners don’t think about the water and sewer lines buried in their yard. They are not visible, and as long as they are doing their jobs, there is no real reason to worry about them, their location, or their condition according to the average person. But that is not always the case. When you are landscaping your home or considering purchasing a new home, you should know that tree roots can create some severe and costly damage to a home’s water and drain lines.

When Is It Time To Replace My Home’s Furnace?

Your home’s furnace provides an essential service. It keeps you warm and comfortable, and it also protects things like your plumbing pipes and appliances from freeze damage. But because this is such an expensive item, most homeowners try to get every last day of use out of it that they can. And while this is a thrifty move in some ways, it might not be a solid choice every time. The average furnace will serve you well for around 15 to 25 years, depending on the climate. (A unit in Florida will typically last longer than a similar one in Minnesota.) But after that, your furnace is living on borrowed time. As you begin to think about a replacement, there are some questions to ask yourself and things to consider to make a smart choice and avoid a few cold nights with no heat in your home.

Would You Like An Endless Water Supply In Your Home?

Imagine the comfort of knowing that when you turn on a hot water faucet or shower in your home, you will have an unlimited supply of hot water. Never again will you run out of hot water in the middle of a shower or when washing a pile of dishes after a holiday meal. It sounds too good to be true. But if you install a tankless water heater, this could be your new reality.

Three Huge Benefits Of Regular Duct Cleaning

We all understand that the duct system in our homes is a critical piece of the HVAC system that keeps us comfortable throughout the year. But what many homeowners don't think about is that the inside of these ducts, or tunnels, can accumulate a massive amount of dust and dirt. Think of the amount of dust that can stick to your ceiling fan's blades and then multiply it by twenty. And that is the dust-covered tubing that is carrying all of the warm air in the winter and cool air in the summer to make your home comfortable. A simple duct cleaning will not only eliminate the nasty dust but will also improve the air quality, eliminate odors, and improve the function of your HVAC system.

Signs That Your Water Heater’s Days Are Numbered

Most traditional water heaters have a life span of between 10 and 15 years. But there is no guarantee that your water heater will live to that ripe old age. If you have not been diligent about the annual maintenance and service of the unit over the years, you are likely to get a shockingly cold shower before receiving a decade of service. So now your question is simple, what are the signs to be looking for to tell me that my water heater is about to fail?

6 Top Causes Of An AC Failure
