Burst water pipe on heating system in winterWinter weather temperatures bring many cautions to be aware of, including health and safety concerns while outdoors, precautionary driving habits during icy conditions, and frozen pipes or thawing pipes in your home.

Preventing Frozen Water Pipes

Which pipes are most likely to freeze? Prepare these three main areas before winter sets in. However, extra observation and attention during the winter months can prevent a water damage situation.

  1. External pipes and faucets are exposed directly to the cold, icy temperatures. These include water line sprinklers and supply lines, hose bibs, and other external sources of water that are commonly used during the warmer months.
  2. Water supply lines inside the home, when running through unheated areas such as attics or basements, can quickly become frozen.
  3. If a house is built on a concrete slab, or the exterior walls have little or no insulation, pipes inside the home could also freeze.

According to Consumer Reports, a do-it-yourself-tip is one of the least expensive ways to prevent frozen pipes:

“Pipe insulation can cost as little as 50 cents per linear foot at your local hardware store,” says Susan Millerick, IBHS spokeswoman. “So, for not much more than the cost of the aspirin you’d need, you can avoid the headaches of cleanup, loss of precious keepsakes, and the cost of your insurance deductible.”

Use the pipe insulation liberally to protect any vulnerable pipes. For best protection and efficiency, rely on a qualified local plumber who knows the proper installation and location for each type of pipe.

Another tip is to let the faucets drip a little during freezing temperatures. Water directly out of the ground is around 52 degrees, so a continuous drip helps prevent freezing.

Dealing with Burst Water Pipes

Water expands when freezing. This is true for your ice cube tray in the kitchen freezer, as well as for water that has frozen in your home’s plumbing system. Continual freezing and expansion inside the pipe causes a blockage, which builds up pressure where the water is remaining inside the pipe. This is often the point where the pipe bursts.

When you discover a burst water pipe, follow these immediate steps to prevent further damage:

Stop the water flow. Shut off the water to that area, or to the entire house if necessary. It’s a good practice to label the main shut-off valve to your home. Train members of your family how to shut off the valve in an emergency.

If you have city water, the shut-off valve is usually by the water meter. Those who live in the country need to shut off at the water main, or if they don’t know where that is, then at the pressure tank.

Be aware of other safety hazards. The burst pipe may have caused water seepage onto the floor or in the walls. Use caution where water is standing on the floor, and carefully extract the water from the area. If water has affected areas where there are electrical outlets, you may need to shut off breakers to that section of the house. Either instance may require a professional to help assess and repair the damage.

Submerged appliances may also sustain damage that could affect their motor or proper operation. Just a few inches of water on the floor may result in problems for a washer and dryer, or other appliance that sits on or low to the floor.

Call a licensed plumber to assess and assist with the situation.

What to Do when Frozen Pipes Thaw

Changes in winter temperatures may force the previously-frozen pipes to thaw slowly, revealing leaks that can either be large and obvious, or minute and less detectable.

Slow warm-up is best way for frozen pipes to thaw. Don’t try to rush the thaw with a hair dryer or blow torch. Torches and heat guns can set the building on fire if they get too hot.

Don’t pour hot water down the pipes. Trying to warm pipes too quickly might cause cracking in pipes made of copper and iron.

Frozen pipes in the home often need the skill of a plumber. A skilled plumber knows how to safely use a pipe thawer on copper or galvanized pipes. Using this, he can usually detect the cracks in the pipe.

Both PVC and CPVC pipes can also freeze. The cracks in these pipes are harder to see, making leaks common. However, a PEX pipe is a cross-linked polyethylene tubing that is more durable and resistant to cracks and breaks.

It’s a good idea to call a licensed plumber to inspect the pipe line. He will determine the extent of repairs needed, or if a section needs to be completely replaced.

Winter weather brings a variety of annoyances. Prevent one more problem by being proactive about freezing pipes or finding a qualified plumber to fix a burst or leaking pipe. Schedule an inspection with Naugle Plumbing and Heating today if you suspect frozen water pipes.

Fall is an excellent time to work on home repair projects before the shorter days (of ice and snow) make it too difficult to work outdoors.

If you are living in an area where cold winters are a norm, take time this fall to enhance energy efficiency in your home and avoid damage caused by winter storms. Tick these items off your list and relax knowing that your home, including the yard, is ready for winter.

Be Prepared for the Season with This Comprehensive Home Maintenance Checklist

Clean filters part of seasonal furnace maintenance

1. Furnace Maintenance

  • Schedule HVAC maintenance: Most emergency service calls occur as a result of improper maintenance. A service agreement for furnace maintenance always comes in handy. Schedule an appointment for the inspection and tune-up your furnace to avoid a breakdown in the winter.
  • Replace the filters: This is also the best time to check and change furnace filters. If you have clean filters, your HVAC system’s efficiency will improve and it will distribute heat better while cutting on energy costs.

2. Protect Your Plumbing

  • Insulating water lines: Have a look at the water lines and plumbing pipes, particularly those placed on exterior walls. Ensure that they are insulated to prevent frozen pipes and leaks in the winter. Clean lines help to get rid of clogs that can cause backups that freeze, cause pipes to weaken, and burst eventually. Consider wrapping the pipes with insulation meant for plumbing.
  • Drain the water heater: Improve the efficiency of your water heater by approximately 50% by draining all the sediment buildup from the holding tank. Flush the water heater, to ensure that it’s working properly. You can also get professional water heater maintenance if in doubt on what to do.
  • Take out and drain outdoor hoses: You need to detach the outdoor hoses before the first freeze. Any standing water needs to be drained completely and the hose stored appropriately. Additionally, drain the outdoor faucets and close the interior shut-off valves with spigots or hose bibs. This prevents frozen pipes during winter.
  • Water heater maintenance: Water heaters need servicing at least one per year. General maintenance practices include unblocking tight air passages and hydrocarbon sensors, as well as other regular preventative tasks.

3. Seal Your Drafts and Add Insulation

  • Caulk, cover, and weatherstrip: Special attention is needed to take care of drafts around doors or windows, especially if you have not installed energy efficient windows. Replace or add worn-out weather stripping in those spots.
  • Measure insulation: Look at the attic and if you spot exposed joists, ensure to add more insulation. Your location will determine the insulation required. The colder the climate, the more insulation you’ll need.
  • Check on energy waste: During this time, you want to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Schedule a professional energy audit, and get a comprehensive report on insufficient insulation and air leaks that waste energy. From there, you can look for professionals to close all the loopholes.

4. Check the Roof, Gutters, and Chimney

  • Inspect the roof: First things first, perform a visual roof inspection. Ensure that the shingles are in an excellent condition and that none are missing. Look out for sags or dips – they may indicate a problem with the wood placed underneath the roof shingles. In case the roof is old, consider calling a professional roofing contractor to inspect it.
  • Clean the gutters: Dead leaves accumulate quickly and can cause blocked gutters. They can also create backups that lead to water damage or an ice dam during winter. You can hire a professional to take care of the gutter cleaning or do it yourself. Even if they are not clogged at the beginning of fall, check again once the leaves start falling.
  • Plan a chimney sweep: Chimney fire can be caused by creosote buildup, so ensure you get the fireplace and chimney cleaned before you can start using it for winter. Have the chimney inspected, preferably once a year. Note that this will depend on how regular you use it.

5. Cover the Seasonal Lawn Care

  • Get rid of fallen leaves: Dead leaves accumulate and get wet. This can cause mold growth and provide a conducive breeding environment for pests. Fallen leaves also hinder your grass from getting adequate sunlight. Mow, rake, or use a leaf-blower to remove the leaves before snowfall.
  • Wrap up the fall lawn care: In case you would like to have a green lawn, you need to do your prep work now. Fertilize, aerate, and pull out weeds from your lawn. Depending on the kind of grass, you’ll need to fertilize the lawn at least twice this season (at the start and end of the season). If you have bare patches or damaged sections, lay down seeds for new grass as early as possible. When your grass is grown, cut it and leave the lawn at approximately three inches in height over winter.
  • Store your lawn equipment well: You need to drain your gasoline containers, lawn mowers, and other tools and equipment that are gasoline powered. Also, clean all the garden tools and equipment before you hang it up for the coming season. Do not forget to conduct end-of-season lawn mower maintenance, and this includes an oil change.

6. Take Garage Stock

  • Inspect the garage door: Chances are, you will not think a lot about your garage door during winter unless it freezes. That’s why this is the best time to have the garage door inspected just before the cold weather hits. The inspection on the garage door should cover adjusting cables and springs, tightening track, hardware, and hinges, lubricating moving parts, as well as the opener gears and safety sensors.
  • Get rid of items that may freeze: Store paint, adhesives or caulk in a heated area to ensure they don’t freeze. Call the local hazardous material service for instructions on how to dispose of the paint and the other products that might be toxic.
  • Get out your winter gear: This is the ideal time to prepare your snow shovels and other essential winter gear. Ensure that everybody in your household knows where the winter gear is placed in case of an emergency.

Annual Air Conditioner Maintenance tipsNow is the perfect time to schedule annual air conditioner maintenance for your home, no matter what type of A/C system you have. Before the weather gets hot, have the system serviced and inspected. A qualified HVAC contractor will be able to identify and fix problems early, saving the cost of replacing an entire unit.

An air conditioner that is serviced regularly operates more efficiently. Simple maintenance tasks or adjustments within the unit can potentially reduce the energy consumption and lower your electric bill.

How an Air Conditioner Works

There are many parts of an air conditioner, and each requires some type of cleaning, adjustment, or lubrication.

Evaporator – this includes the cooling coils that remove the heat and humidity from the air, using a refrigerant. During normal maintenance, adding refrigerant may be necessary.

Blower – the blower circulates the air over the evaporator; and this is what sends chilled air into the room to make you comfortable.

Condenser – these are coils that carry heat to the outside. This area needs to be cleaned and free from debris, leaves, and dirt to allow for good airflow to the outside.

Compressor – moves the refrigerant from the evaporator to the condenser. This motor needs to be well-maintained, lubricated, and inspected thoroughly to be sure the systems work together.

Fan units – blow air over the condenser, assisting with releasing the hot air outside.

Filter – protects the unit from airborne particles, and can easily become clogged. Changing filters periodically can help improve how well the unit operates.

Thermostat – simple calibrations within the thermostat can make a difference in the temperature request inside the home.

Proper Refrigerant Levels

Refrigerant is inside the air conditioner coils, changing from a low-pressure gas to a high-pressure liquid and back again as heat is absorbed and cooled down while passing through the system.

Sometimes, refrigerant needs to be added during a service call. This is not because the A/C unit uses up the refrigerant, like your car uses up gas; but because of how the components are manufactured. Minute cracks can develop in the thin copper tubing or in the evaporator coil, and can cause refrigerant leaks.

Only licensed HVAC companies can purchase refrigerant for A/C units, and the technicians have been trained to install it properly. The type of refrigerant required varies, depending on the model of your air conditioner.

R-22 phase-out – Check the age of your air conditioner; the US Government has mandated that R-22 coolant will be unavailable within a couple of years. The more environmentally-friendly R410A refrigerant cannot be used inside an older system; so eventually an HVAC upgrade may become necessary.

Service Agreements Give Peace of Mind

Planned Service Agreements save money by providing annual check-ups on the A/C unit for one low price. The following areas of the air conditioner are serviced annually:

  • Check and clean the condenser coil
  • Check the electrical connections
  • Check for oil and refrigerant leaks
  • Check the safeties and controls
  • Check and oil the blower
  • Check the expansion valve
  • Check the refrigerant pressures
  • Check the evaporator temperatures
  • Check the condensate drain
  • Clean or replace the standard 1-inch filter
  • Oil the motors as needed
  • Adjust the system for optimum cooling

Of course, simple homeowner tasks such as making sure the external unit is free from leaves and debris, and brush is trimmed around the unit, will help operating efficiency. Frequently replacing the filter will also help airflow through the unit, giving it a better chance of cooling your home.

When you consider all the moving parts associated with an HVAC unit, it’s a good idea to rely on a professional to make sure the air conditioner is well-maintained. Call Naugle Plumbing & Heating to begin a service agreement contract or schedule a maintenance inspection on your air conditioner now, before the hot weather arrives.

Furnace Service Agreement and repairAs the winter heating season approaches, it’s a good idea to evaluate how well your furnace or boiler system is operating. Take the time now to inspect and prepare the HVAC system to ensure trouble-free performance before the cold weather arrives.

Just like your car, a heating system should have routine checkups. Ignore regular maintenance for too long and malfunctions will probably occur, especially on cold winter days. Regular inspections via a furnace service agreement will ensure your heating system is working well when the temperatures drop.

How much does HVAC maintenance cost?

When an emergency visit is required for home heating repairs, service fees and part costs are usually separate items calculated for the trip. HVAC maintenance costs can vary widely, depending on the severity of the problem and type of parts that may need to be replaced.

A reputable furnace repair company will follow established industry pricing guidelines for the parts needed as well as the standardized time that is estimated to complete the task.

Ideally, a maintenance inspection should be scheduled as a precautionary step well ahead of seasonal changes. This is a separate service call that is performed by a qualified HVAC technician. This inspection can identify worn parts, inefficient operation, or possible safety hazards that should be addressed.

Is a home heating service contract worth it?

Cost-conscious homeowners may be tempted to ignore annual service tasks required for their furnace; but there are some ways to save money while still having quality service.

A service agreement, also known as a maintenance contract, or service plan, outlines specific preventative tasks that are performed on a home heating system. These types of agreements often provide overall cost savings for the annual maintenance inspection as well as reduced fees for additional service-related tasks.

Service contracts may be available through a few resources in your community:

  • A qualified HVAC service company
  • Gas or utility companies
  • Home warranty companies

Each resource will offer different levels of service and may have pre-qualifying criteria before specific work is covered. It’s best to research the options available, but make sure the work is completed by someone familiar with your system. A warranty for the work performed may also be part of the agreement, so ask each resource for specific information about the coverage.

What is included in a planned service agreement?

At a minimum, the service agreement usually includes an annual inspection of the furnace or boiler system. This can include a visual inspection of the thermostat, pressure settings, motor functions, belts, burners and fans, as well as evaluating the entire operational cycle. Some agreements also check carbon monoxide levels, humidity levels, and air filtration or purification.

Labor costs for the annual inspection are usually included in the agreement; but if additional parts are needed, that can be an additional expense.

Some levels of service plans also include priority scheduling. Customers on a regular plan appreciate having their systems checked well ahead of season requirements.

Combining service plans may also be an option, so the humidifier is checked at the same time as the gas furnace. This reduces the need for an additional service call, so some savings may be passed on to the customer.

Benefits of a heating system service plan

Besides peace of mind, there are a number of benefits to having a regular heating system service plan.

  • System dependability
  • Proper maintenance
  • Safe operation
  • Energy cost savings
  • Repair warranty
  • Discounts on additional services or parts

A complete home heating system provides warm comfort during chilly weather; but it needs occasional maintenance to keep it working great. Some of that is minor upkeep tasks that a homeowner should perform on a regular basis, while other maintenance tasks are better left to a heating specialist.

You wouldn’t keep driving your car without adding gas, changing the oil and air filter on a regular basis; and a complex system inside your home requires, at a minimum, a certain level of attention to keep it at optimum performance.

Your furnace may work fine to produce heat during the winter months. The best indoor comfort also includes clean air and the right levels of humidity, which also factor into the operation of a furnace.

Monthly Maintenance Tips

Changing the furnace filterMany manufacturers of forced air heating systems recommend that the air filters are changed monthly, to ensure proper airflow and reduce allergens in the air throughout the house.

People with allergies, asthma or other sensitivities often prefer homes without carpeting because carpet traps and holds contaminants. But regardless of the type of flooring in a home, a whole-house air filter on the heating system can help block those particles before they travel and settle.

Filters are a low-cost item that, when changed frequently, can keep the ductwork cleaner for longer periods of time. Buy the right filter for the heating system. The furnace requires a certain mixture of airflow to cool itself, and too dense of a filter will prevent that from happening.

Seasonal Maintenance Tips

A central humidifier works on the home heating system to provide the right amount of humidity throughout each zone of the house. However, these can become clogged with minerals from the water, and should be carefully cleaned at least each season. Dry air in the home spreads germs that cause illness; and humidity around 40 percent is comfortable. Lower humidity levels also affect the wood and wallpaper, causing them to dry out and become cracked, which can be costly to replace.

A humidifier installed on a furnace can help control the humidity levels throughout the house, or each zone if that is how the heating system operates. The pad or filter that the water passes through naturally trap minerals, scale, rust, and hard water deposits, and it is necessary to replace this at least seasonally, depending on the local water. Calcium and mineral deposits also build up in the water reservoir, and a full cleaning of the humidifier may require disassembly by a qualified HVAC technician.

Long-Term Maintenance Tips

Ductwork inside the home serves the purpose of passing heated or cooled air from one area to another, and can often become polluted with dust, debris and even fungus or mold. Some of the dust gathers around the air vents and registers, so vacuuming these areas helps, including removing the vent cover and carefully vacuuming inside the opening as far as the vacuum hose can reach.

However, proper duct cleaning is recommended around every four years, and should be done by a qualified professional who can contain the contaminants properly.

Proper maintenance now can make a difference in the efficiency of the home heating system throughout the year. Call Naugle Plumbing and Heating to check your system over, and save $25 off your next service call through April 30, 2016, when you mention the service code WebClean0430.

Hot Water Heater Maintenance TipsRegular indoor maintenance ensures systems work efficiently when you rely on them throughout the year. A home’s hot water heater is just one of those systems that could use some help right now.

Whether you are maintaining an older hot water heater, or considering the purchase of a new, higher efficiency model, here are a few tips to consider.

Maintenance questions – It is important to learn what is necessary when it comes to maintaining your hot water system. Do you need to replace parts, or have the system flushed or cleaned? Are there any calibration adjustments that a professional plumber should perform? These are good questions to explore.

Warranties and contracts – Make sure you adhere to maintenance contracts that are required for a warranty. Review these documents and follow the recommended guidelines, just as you would the maintenance schedule for your car.

Give it a Flush – Flushing the hot water heater monthly will prevent sediment from building up inside. Here’s an important tip: the normal valve commonly found on a conventional water heater doesn’t open wide enough to let all the particles out. A better option is to have your plumber install a Wide-Open Valve, which opens larger and also has a hose connection to easily direct the water away from the system.

Water softeners – Hard water deposits leave behind residue and can negatively affect the performance of your hot water heater. Get your water tested, and consider a softener system to avoid corrosion on the inside of your water heater.

Pressure regulating valves – If the water pressure in your home is high, it may damage your appliances and also cause your water heater to fail. A pressure regulating valve regulates water pressure through the entire plumbing system, and should be installed by a qualified plumber.

Consider retirement – Conventional water heaters may last around ten years, so if your unit is older than that, you will probably see a significant energy savings by replacing it, sometimes as much as 20%. Conventional water heaters need to run all day to keep water hot and ready for you, accounting for almost 30% of a home’s energy bill. The tankless water heater systems quickly heat water right when you need it, and take up much less space in the utility room, and often have a longer warranty. Consult with a plumbing specialist to determine the flow rate and which system will meet that need.

Protect you investment with some simple DIY maintenance; but rely on a qualified plumber to help maintain your hot water heater in the best condition. Call Naugle Plumbing & Heating to schedule a checkup for your hot water heater today.

Central Air Conditioning tipsTemperature fluctuations this time of year may have you wondering about the effectiveness of your existing central air conditioning unit. Or, perhaps you don’t have central air and want to have it installed this year. Here are a few tips to consider about home central air units.

Air Conditioning Costs vs. Benefits

On average, central air is less expensive to operate than a number of older window air conditioners. So, if you are cooling your home with the same equipment you used 8-10 years ago, it may be more efficient to install newer whole-house air conditioning.

Even those central air units that are 10 years or older are not as energy-efficient as the models available today. The Energy.gov website stated that you could probably save 20% to 40% of cooling costs by replacing an older air conditioner with newer, more efficient models.

The good news is that the average life span of most central air conditioners is now around 15 years, and replacement parts and regular maintenance can help them last at least that long, or even longer.

Central air conditioners circulate cool air throughout your home, and also reduce the amount of humidity at the same time. High humidity left inside a home can contribute to health problems and mold growth inside the walls of your home.

This is where an experienced professional can help you decide on the right size of air conditioning unit. A unit too small for your square footage won’t properly cool it; while a unit too large will not adequately remove humidity.

Proper Installation Required

An HVAC specialist knows the right ductwork required for a specific make and model of central air conditioning; and where to locate that ductwork for best air movement throughout the house.

If your home already has an adequate furnace, a split-system unit might be recommended for air conditioning the whole house. Find a heating and cooling specialist who knows the specifications of the different systems, who can suggest the best options for your home.

You may have seen packaged air conditioner systems, where the entire unit is located outside the home. For those, it is important that they are located properly on a level surface, away from bushes or areas where leaves or debris can clog the unit’s airflow. The HVAC Technician will also make sure that refrigerant levels are proper and the entire system is operating correctly.

Regular Maintenance Required

Just as with other major systems in your home, you need to properly maintain your central air conditioning system. Some tasks are easy to check yourself, such as inspecting, cleaning or replacing the air filter or checking the thermostat settings. Other maintenance requires special tools or knowledge.

A regular maintenance plan with our HVAC team at Naugle Plumbing and Heating will ensure you have comfortable, cool living inside your home this summer. Call us to see what specials are available in central air conditioning for your home.

It could happen to anyone – a leaking pipe, malfunctioning washing machine, or natural disaster that requires you to shut water off to your home or condo. Often, the plumbing emergency is time-critical, and acting fast to shut off the water main can save hundreds of gallons of water in your monthly bill, and prevent flooding damage in your home.

Depending on your leak or problem, the time you spend looking for the shut-off valve can cause enough water to start flooding your home that would normally fill a bathtub, or more.

Handle Plumbing Emergencies Quickly

If a burst pipe is your plumbing emergency, calling for a plumbing repair service won’t stop the water fast enough, but you can prevent further damage while they arrive if you know how to locate your water shut-off valves.

Each home has a main shut-off valve. Depending on the size or construction of your home or condo, you may have local zones of water in different areas, which would also have different valves to lower or stop the water in that area. For instance, shutting off valves to the outside water faucets wouldn’t necessarily shut off water throughout the entire house.

Where is your water meter or pressure tank located? Chances are that the main shut-off valve is located near that. Otherwise, you can observe the piping in your basement if it’s visible, and locate connections leading to a main pipe. It may be a good idea to buy an extra set of channel locks or a pipe wrench that you keep right near the valve at all times. That way, you won’t spend additional time searching for the tool to shut down the water.

If you still aren’t sure where the main shut-off valve is located, sign up to receive our Home Check Up report, or call Tecumseh’s best plumbing service for an inspection of your home’s main operational systems.

Water Heater RepairWater heaters are something that we rely on daily, for a hot shower, long soothing bath, clean clothes and dishes, and more. But when your water heater stops working, you miss the convenience that you enjoyed throughout the day. Here are five warning signs that your water heater may need help.

Not enough hot water

Are you shortening your shower because the hot water doesn’t last as long? Even if you’re not lucky enough to get your shower before your teenager does, a hot water heater should normally provide enough hot water for at least two showers in a row.

There’s a monster down there

Do you hear boiling or rumbling sounds in the bottom of the water heater, or sounds like small pebbles rolling around? Chances are that you have a buildup that needs to be cleaned.

Relief valve leaking

If your relief valve has a constant drip to it, then it could be filled with mineral deposits that might block it off completely – potentially resulting in a water heater explosion.

Check the supply

Supply valves need to be operational and free from corrosion or rust. If these become blocked, you may notice a decrease in water available.

Is the water heater vented properly?

Water heater venting should be in good condition and attached securely, with no blockage. Blockage can cause improper operation and a loss of efficiency. And, if your water heater isn’t vented properly, there is a risk of carbon monoxide entering your home.

A home appliance that you rely on daily needs regular maintenance checks, just like the vehicle you drive. If you’d like to know how to check your home systems, sign up for our Home Check Up report, or call us for an inspection of your home’s main operational systems.
