Get Your Home in Boise Ready for Old Man Winter

Posted by Boise Home Helper on December 5, 2011

home winterization in boiseNow is theĀ  time of year to start thinking about preparing your home for winter, because as temperatures begin to dip, your home will require maintenance to keep it in tip-top shape through the winter.

Here are some good things to think about in getting ready for the long cold winter ahead!

 

 

1) Furnace Inspection

  • Call an HVAC professional to inspect your furnace and clean ducts.
  • Stock up on furnace filters and change them monthly.
  • Consider switching out your thermostat for a programmable thermostat.
  • If your home is heated by a hot-water radiator, bleed the valves by opening them slightly and when water appears, close them.
  • Remove all flammable material from the area surrounding your furnace.

 

2) Get the Fireplace Ready

  • Cap or screen the top of the chimney to keep out rodents and birds.
  • If the chimney hasn’t been cleaned for a while, call a chimney sweep to remove soot and creosote.
  • Buy firewood or chop wood. Store it in a dry place away from the exterior of your home.
  • Inspect the fireplace damper for proper opening and closing.
  • Check the mortar between bricks and tuckpoint, if necessary.

 

3) Prevent Plumbing Freezes

  • Locate your water main in the event you need to shut it off in an emergency.
  • Drain all garden hoses.
  • Insulate exposed plumbing pipes.
  • Drain air conditioner pipes and, if your AC has a water shut-off valve, turn it off.
  • If you go on vacation, leave the heat on, set to at least 55 degrees.
  • Have any problem areas looked at by a quality Boise Plumber.

 

These things may seem like common knowledge, but you know what they say about an ounce of prevention…

Good Health and Good Plumbing

Posted by Boise Home Helper on May 23, 2011

Boise PlumbingGood plumbing is a matter which concerns health. The plumbing system in your home is composed of two separate subsystems. One subsystem brings fresh water in, and the other takes waste water out.

A leakage of polluted water from the house-drainage system is unsanitary and dangerous. Leakage within the house may pollute the habitation and permit food infection through the medium of insects; they may transport disease germs, and thus be a menace to your health.

City ordinances usually define the exact methods and materials used in the home for sewage disposal, they outline the methods by which connections must be made, and specify the installation of waste lines.

Regulations governing the installation of plumbing have been established in many places, many cities have plumbing codes or local ordinances governing plumbing. These regulations have been important in improving living conditions throughout the country. For the safety of your health check the license of any plumber you are considering using.
