How To: Extend The Life Of Your Water Heater

B.99 How To Extend Water Heater Life

Nobody likes a cold shower, right?? In order to guarantee you always have hot water for your whole shower it’s important to make sure your water heater is always able to do its job!

Check It Out Yourself First: Look for warning signs all around the water heater.  Check around for puddles or any signs of a leak and check for cracks or rust on the outside of the tank.  If you see any warning signs it’s best to call a plumber since these signs are good indicators that your water heater needs serviced or replaced.

3 Steps to Maintain/Extend Life:
1. Check the pressure relief valve: This is the part that maintains tank pressure.  If this part is disrupted it could cause pressure to build up so much that it makes your tank explode.  If you need help locating this valve be sure to check your manual or call a trusted plumber.
2. Flush the tank: This process removes sediment that can be harmful to the tank.  If you are not sure how to drain your water heater this can be a lengthy list of instructions to follow.  In all situations if you are not sure how to perform the task at hand you should contact your local and trusted plumbing company.
3. Check the anode rod: This is the piece of metal that you’ll find extending into the tank.  You’ll want to be sure to check this part periodically for rust damage and replace it when needed to help extend the life of your water heater.

If you haven’t been giving proper maintenance to your water heater, now is the time to begin! Call BELOMAN today!

Minerals, Dirt and Rubber, Oh My!

B.96 Impurities in Tap Water

Have you recently gone to retrieve an ice cold glass of tap water only to find unwanted specks floating? This can be very unpleasant as well as unhealthy to drink!  Because of the potential problems, it’s important to correct the problem at hand.  Fortunately, there are ways to track down the source of the impurities in your household plumbing and prevent most of them.

Dirty Water: if you are finding dirt or sand in your glass it is usually an indicator that there is a water main break somewhere in the public water supply and should be addressed by your water department.

Carbon from the Filter: if the specks you are seeing are not due to a water main break, it would be coming from within your water filter.  Foreign floaties may be present if the filter breaks down or if you have a filter that needs to be replaced or repaired.

Some Metal with your Drink: bits of black specks floating in your water could be from a metal mineral.  It turns out that water in certain areas of the country can contain bits of iron or manganese.  The good news is these minerals do not pose a health hazard; however, the bad news is that it can make the water taste odd or leave stains on clothing and dishes.

Bits of Rubber: at times bits of rubber from various parts of your household plumbing can start to disintegrate and send unwanted particles into the pipes.  Often times this happens because the water has been treated with chlorine which is known to break down rubber piping over time.  In this case, it’s probably a good idea to have a plumber come check it out before further damage is done.

Rust Particles: although small amounts of rust aren’t necessarily dangerous to your health, this could be a good sign that your pipes are corroding.  In order to clear rust from your tap water you should contact a trusted plumber for additional help.

Tips to Alleviate Allergies in Your Home

B.95 Allergies in your home

Are allergies keeping you from enjoying the spring time? Don’t worry—you’re not alone! Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies dealing with symptoms of itchy eyes and a stuffy nose.  Although you cannot control your affects to the outdoors, you can keep your symptoms under control while in your home.  By following the 4 simple steps below associated with your HVAC system you can be on your way to alleviating your allergy symptoms!

  1. Clean outdoor unit: Sometimes debris, dirt and pollen can make its way onto your unit.  In order to make sure it does not cause difficulties to the system it’s a good idea to make sure the outside unit is clean of all debris.
  2. Clean vents: Pesky dust mites can build up in your ductwork and spread throughout your home when the air begins to flow.  When you discuss your options with an Indoor Air Quality Expert at BELOMAN you’ll gain a better understanding into whether or not cleaning/sanitizing your ducts is beneficial for your family.
  3. Invest in high quality air filters: When you invest in an air filter with a higher MERV rating you’ll begin trapping more harmful particles from entering your family’s home and disrupting the air you’re breathing in the comfort of your own home.  Check filters monthly and be sure to replace every 3 months to ensure proper efficiency.  Stop by our office to purchase your filters and receive a discount when you purchase 3 at a time!!
  4. Schedule HVAC maintenance appointment: Having your HVAC system serviced bi-annually not only prolongs the life of the system but it also helps to keep everything running efficiently.  Your technician can also give you more tips when it comes to improving the filtration in your home.  When you sign up to join our Discount Club Membership you’ll be enrolled in a club of all kinds of perks!

How Heavy Rain Affects Your Air Conditioner

B.94 Heavy Rain Affect AC

We all know the old saying “April showers bring May flowers”, right? Well what if those showers turn into several down pours over the course of a month? Severe amount of rain can wreak havoc on homes and businesses!  Because your HVAC is such a big investment it’s important to understand how heavy rain can affect your air conditioner.

Storm Damage: With heavy storms also comes high winds which whips debris around.  Additional debris flying around can be harmful to your unit if leaves, twigs, and other debris become lodged inside your condenser fan grille.  Once the storm has passed it’s always a good idea to check out your unit to make sure it is clear of debris and damage.

Flooding: If you live in an area that commonly floods you should be aware of how to protect your AC unit.  When a flood occurs that exceeds a foot or more of water, you should have your unit inspected by a trained and knowledgeable professional.  It’s also important to have your ductwork checked out if it is below the house in a crawlspace.

Corrosion: Aside from storm damage and flooding, corrosion can also occur inside your unit.  If you keep your unit covered during off seasons it may have caused moisture and condensation to build up which can rot wires as well as corrode or rust metal components.  Always be sure to use a specific AC unit cover which is designed to properly vent the unit.

Your AC unit is designed to withstand rain showers as well as snow and hail. Its design makes it capable of holding up in outside weather conditions. Electrical components are sealed and connections are made resistant to moisture.  The compressor and condenser in the outdoor unit are made of aluminum, copper, and other metals, and are made to handle heavy rains. SO! Yes, your unit is made to handle those April showers BUT with everything there is a limit of how much it can withstand–so it’s important to be informed.

7 Ideas for Updating Your Air Vent Covers

B.93 Updating Vent Covers

Are you looking for a painless and inexpensive way to quickly update the interior of your home??  One simple way to modernize a home is to update the air vents!  Your vents can easily make a living space outdated and throw off the feel of the room if they do not match the design in your home.  Most vents are metal grates which can look very drab and plain.  To give your home an extra touch of style we have put together a list of 7 ideas for updating your  air vent covers to keep your home updated!

  1. Wallpaper: if your vent cover is a large customized size that comes with a discouraging large price tag, wallpaper might be a great option for you.  With wallpaper you can match the design concept of the room and cover up any rust or worn vents.  The only thing you’ll have to make sure of is to cut out each slit from the grates.

  2. Spray Paint: another inexpensive route you can take is to spray paint the air vent covers.  Now days there are many types of spray paints.  Hardware stores even carry textured, chrome spray, brass spray and a wide variety of other colors to match a room’s style.

  3. Rubber Welcome Mat: think a welcome mat has one use?  Think again!  If you find a rubber welcome mat with a neat design that you like, you can easily have it tacked to cover an old air vent.B.93 Welcome mat
  4. Hinged Door Frame: making a customized frame and door to cover a vent can easily change the look of your living space.  The frame will add a polished look to an old outdated air vent.B.93 Hinged Door.jpg
  5. Aesthetic Cabinet: if you need a little extra storage space and want to update the look — a cabinet is for you!  Guests will be completely unaware that your air vent is being disguised.B.93 Cabinet.jpg
  6. Sheet Metal: a piece of framed sheet metal with a neat design pattern can update the look of your living space in a flash!  P.S BELOMAN has a sheet metal shop at our office location!B.93 Sheet Metal
  7. Old Shutter: if you’re a fan of the HGTV show ‘Fixer Upper’ and gravitate towards a more rustic décor style — a shutter would be a great idea for you.  Shutters are able to cover an old vent all while still allowing air to properly flow.B.93 Old Shutter

In all of the cases mentioned above the most important factor to keep in mind is to always make sure proper air flow is accessible from the new vent covers.  If your new concept is blocking the air flow into or out of the room you will have a problem regulating the temperature of your home.  Make your home a #BELOMANhome today!  If you would like further information you can give us a call at (618) B-E-L-O-M-A-N or visit our website here.  We would love to help you today!  For any HVAC or plumbing repairs, installations, indoor air quality, sheet metal/fabrication or pest solution help give us a call.  Like always, the #BELOMAN is here to save the day!  BELIEVE IN THE BELOMAN WAY!  We’re the only HVAC and plumbing company in the Metro East to receive the 2016 Better Business Bureau TORCH Award for ethical business practice.  The award honors excellent commitment to customer service through exceptional standards for ethical business practices.
