Summer is a great time to relax and enjoy the warm weather outside. But, it’s also a time when your home is more susceptible to harm. From the heat waves that can cause your HVAC to break down, to buildup in the bathroom, RighTime Home Services is here to help! When it comes to summer home emergencies, we know a thing or two.
With that, see below for two common issues to watch out for when it comes to your home’s HVAC and plumbing system:
1. My Air Conditioning Unit Broke Down
Having your air conditioner break down is never convenient, especially not when it’s the hottest time of the year. The heat is enough to make anyone uncomfortable, but try to keep your cool when handling this situation! If your air conditioning unit has stopped working, the first step is to shut it off completely. If the unit continues to try to function when something is wrong, it can cause even more issues. After you have shut off the air completely, give your local air conditioning and heating professionals a call to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. To avoid summer breakdowns, we recommend routine maintenance checks prior to every seasonal change throughout the year.
2. Help! I’m Having Summer Plumbing Issues
You love having the kids home for the summer. For most families, summer means more family members in the house, and more water usage. Added toilet use, shower use and more. Who knows what might get flushed down the toilet. When you live in California, a day at the beach is common. Sand, sunscreen and hair can add to plumbing buildup. Watch out for clogged pipes, extreme water usage and higher water bills, some of the most common complaints we hear in the summer.
