Is Your Generator Ready for a Storm?

January 13th, 2020

Pennsylvania has seen some intense weather. From the paralyzing effect of the Great Blizzard of March 1888 to the havoc created by Hurricane Agnes in 1972, to the more recent toll of Hurricane Sandy on our state. We know far too well how quickly things can get bad. And when the lights go out while everyone is home, you will have enough to worry about trying to make it through without power. That is why you have a whole house generator, after all.

But what do you do when the lights go out and your generator doesn’t kick on like it’s meant to? It’s a chilling thought, we know, and that’s why we are bringing it up. Think about when you last did a full check on your generator? If a storm rolled through tomorrow, are you 100% sure that your generator would be ready to handle the job? If you aren’t, it may be time to consider scheduling generator services in Havertown, PA.

It is pretty incredible to think about the fact that we can harness power, warmth, and cold from our planet. Not only is this a fact that allows us to spend less time and energy trying to keep our daily lives moving, but it is also one that means we can spend less cash overall to keep comfortable.

Geothermal heating and cooling is a marvel of technology that coincidentally uses knowledge that we’ve been making the most of for millennia (see people holing up in caves or building their homes in a hillside for reference). But for now, we just want to focus on the benefits of using geothermal heating to keep you comfortable this winter.

Some of the biggest holidays of the year are just around the corner. Are you prepared? Hopefully, you are and if so we want to ask a follow-up question: is your plumbing prepared?

While that second query may sound a little strange, we promise that it is related. This is because, should you have some plumbing problems that you haven’t picked up on yet, they will come to call at the worst possible time this season, simply because of all the increased activity that this season brings to your sinks, drains and overall plumbing system.

One great way to make sure that part of your plumbing system is ready for the holidays is by scheduling drain cleaning services. Let us explain why.

The Best Guard Against Flooding: Sump Pumps

December 2nd, 2019

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the end of June marked the rainiest eight-month time period for the state of Pennsylvania. In fact, with all the rain we’ve been getting, it was found that, as of July, the past four years have been the wettest on record for the state.

That’s a lot of rain!

That is all well and good for the water supply and maintaining our lush landscape, but it can be worrisome when it comes to our homes. Why? Because all that rain adds up, and sometimes it likes to add up inside of our homes. We are talking about the risk of flooding of course.

Thankfully, there is one incredibly helpful piece of plumbing technology that can help reduce the risk of your home becoming one large wading pool: the sump pump.

There are few things more enjoyable than a comfortably warm (or nice and hot) shower to clean off and refresh. There is also nothing worse than being in the middle of your cozy rinse and having the water suddenly turn icy. If this has happened to you, there were likely several choice words uttered before the water returned to normal and you continued with your shower, believing the sudden temperature change to have been a mere fluke.

The truth is that this was an attempt at a wake-up call from your water heater! Your water heater may be struggling with the job it is meant to do and, if this incident is ignored, may fail to produce any hot water later on.

There is a way to avoid this situation altogether though: maintenance!
