Annual Plumbing Checklist
Modern heating and plumbing systems are, for the most part, homeowner and user-friendly. The maintenance and upkeep of the parts and appliances that keep these systems operating in peak condition are minimal, however, they are essential to stay on top of.
At Culler Plumbing Services, our skilled plumbers can help you keep up on all of your plumbing and heating maintenance needs. Here is a handy list of annual plumbing and heating maintenance tasks that you should have performed.
Each year you should inspect and perform routine maintenance on your plumbing system as a whole. You should inspect your pipes for leaks, your drains for clogs, and ensure that all of your faucets and outside hose bibs are working without problem. If you have had problems with your drains, consider a camera inspection by your local plumber to identify clogs and professional drain cleaning. Tougher clogs can benefit from water jetting or another professional plumbing service.
Your water heater should run without problems for over a decade. However, if you are like 80 percent of American households, and have hard water, you will need to clean your water heater regularly. Even if you don’t have hard water, it is still a good idea to clean your water heater tank to prevent a buildup of contaminants. If your hot water heater is old, has not been working well, or your utility bills are high, you may consider replacing it and upgrading to a newer, more modern and efficient one.
Your furnace should only be working about half of the year, the other half of the year, it is literally collecting dust. At least annually, you should have your furnace cleaned and inspected, before lighting it for the cold season. At Culler Plumbing Services, we can help you with your furnace at the same time we inspect your water heater and plumbing system.
