Kids & Guests Take a Toll on Plumbing & AC Systems

Saint Paul, MN -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/27/2018 -- Minnesota homes get a workout in summer, so now is the time for proactive maintenance. As the school year finishes, summer guests arrive and college students return home for the summer, residents find their plumbing and air conditioners overworked. Summer plans should never include clogged pipes or an AC breakdown, so here are a few DIY tips to keep home cooling and plumbing systems running smoothly. Homeowners who take action now and call for expert air conditioning repair service in Minneapolis when the time arises can stay on top of home maintenance and prevent a summertime catastrophe.

Three Maintenance Checks to Ensure Plumbing & AC Performance

1. Maintain water pressure. In summer, water usage goes up and pressure in showers and kitchens can be reduced. A washer that takes a long time to fill or a shower that delivers only a trickle could indicate a problem with clogged pipes, a partially closed water supply valve or a leaking faucet. Some DIY detective work and minor repairs will usually restore normal water flow.

2. Clear drains & sewers. Having more people around the house means bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms are always in use. Children bring in grass, sand and small toys that make their way into toilets and drains. Fresh garden produce sends mud and fibrous waste down kitchen sinks and garbage disposals. To prevent a plumbing backup during parties or impromptu neighborhood gatherings, wise residents schedule drain cleaning and plumbing repair service in Minneapolis before summer activities kick off.

3. Perform seasonal AC maintenance. Air conditioners work most efficiently when serviced at the beginning of the cooling season. A thorough annual maintenance checkup includes cleaning filters, replacing worn belts and refilling coolant to assure maximum comfort for family and guests.
