Fall is coming, and at Lindstrom Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we want to help you prepare your South Florida home. As we observe National Preparedness Month during September, get your family prepared for the unpredictable with these must-do plumbing maintenance tips for the transition to cooler weather.
Clear sewer line, gutters and downspouts
The fallout of debris clogging gutters and downspouts is added weight and poor drainage. Secondary to this is accumulated damp debris around your home’s foundation during rainy Florida winters, which can lead to even more problems. Tree roots can often grow into sewer lines. When this becomes more of a problem than you care to tackle, call Lindstrom.
Prepare plumbing for vacation mode
When the snowbirds head our way, do you head north? If you’ll be taking an extended trip away from your home, prepare your pipes and faucets for your time away. Turn off your main water valve and drain any excess water from faucets.
Look for leaks
Fall is also a good time to look for any plumbing leaks. If you find a leak, call the plumbing experts at Lindstrom to have it repaired ASAP. Our customers can always trust both the quality of our work and a fair price, including a 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.
Have your water heater inspected
While our south Florida winters are still very mild, you may find yourself using your water heater more. Fall is a good time of year to have your water heater inspected by a Lindstrom technician. We can check that the heating elements, valves, and more are working properly to keep your unit in top shape.
During our inspection, we’ll check to see if there is sediment buildup in your tank. This sediment can prevent the drain valve from draining properly or the heating element from working as efficiently. Your Lindstrom technician can perform a flush and fill to get it working efficiently again, bringing your unit back to manufacturer settings and saving you money on utilities.
If you are looking to prepare your home for fall, call Lindstrom’s professional plumbers at (800) 813-1824. We’ll help keep your home safe all season long.
