How To: Prevent a Vacation Plumbing Disaster

B.103 Plumbing Summer Vacation

Summer months are upon us and the planning of summer vacations is in full gear. Along with planning excursions, what to pack and who’s going to take care of the family pet there’s also a list of tasks to get your home ready for your long leave of absence. Although reprogramming your thermostat while you’re away is a good start—your plumbing should not be left on the back burner! In order to leave your home feeling completely confident that you’ll return to a happy home your household plumbing system will need some quick-and-easy preparation as well.

Picture this: you’re sitting on your couch watching your favorite TV show when a pipe in your home decides to spring a leak—you rush for the nearest bucket or empty trashcan to quickly catch the water then sprint to the shut off valve. Now…picture all of this happening while you’re instead relaxing on the beach soaking in the sun.  This can be a catastrophe that can be easily avoided by simply shutting off the main water supply.  Along with shutting off the main water supply there’s also a few more adjustments to extend your savings even more.  If you have an automatic ice maker, it might be a good idea to shut it down before you leave to help save a little extra water.  This is also the case if you have a water softening system.  You can also turn off your water heater if no one will be in the home to enjoy taking a hot shower so there isn’t a need to keep it running. These are just a few of the options to plan ahead for your plumbing and extended trip away from home!

Gift Ideas to Keep Your Cool Dad Cool

B.102 Fathers Day Cool Dad

Is your Dad like most males and is always complaining that he’s hot?  In this case, the real gift he’ll want is a cool house and a smoothly running air conditioner.  The perfect gift for Dad is a gift that will help him stay cool all summer long!  Here’s a list of Father’s Day gift ideas to make your Dad cooler than cool:

Smart Thermostat: With a smart thermostat, Dad can connect from anywhere he is able to connect to Wi-Fi using a smart device and connect to the thermostat.  This will help Dad to be comfortable when he gets back home from a work trip or a long day at the office.  There are even some that can learn his behavior of setting the thermostat to automatically maximize efficiency.
Tree for the Yard: Does your Dad like spending time in the yard but always complains about too much sun?  A shade tree could do the trick!  You could also strategically plant the tree so that less sun enters the windows allowing less heat into the home and allowing the AC unit to not work as hard.
Bladeless Fan: Is your dad a big fan guy?  If so, a bladeless fan could be the perfect gift option for him.  These sleek modern fans provide all of the air of a traditional fan without all of the loud noise and a more polished look.  This can definitely be a temporary fix to a larger cooling problem for the time being.
Cooling Neck Wrap: Wanting something your Dad can use to cool down while on the go?  With a cooling neck tie Dad can keep it around his neck to help relieve some of the heat.
AC Maintenance: Is your Dad a forgetful guy?  If so, a voucher for an AC maintenance call from your locally owned and trusted HVAC company is the perfect gift to keep him safe and cool!

Help! My AC is Making a Strange Sound!

B.101 AC Strange Sounds

Is your air conditioner making a strange sound and leaving you with an uneasy feeling?  We’ve put together a list of several common AC sounds and what they could mean.  As always if you feel uneasy about the situation it’s best to contact a licensed and trained professional!

Clicking at startup: this sound may indicate that there is hardware loose inside the unit and springs or bolts have become lodged inside.
Squealing at startup: if you hear this sound there is usually nothing if it’s a brief; however, if this is a new sound you’re hearing and it’s never done it before, it may be in need of a repair.
Hissing: if you hear hissing it’s a good indicator that you have a refrigerant line leak and should have a technician address the problem very soon.
Bubbling: a bubbling sound can be due to a slow leak or gas bubbles in the line.  Call the BELOMAN to have a professional check for a leak and repair.
Animal sounds: your AC is not a living and breathing animal so any sign of animal sounds is not good.  It’s possible that an animal has made its way into your duct work or trapped itself inside your AC unit. Call our pest department for help!
Rumbling: rumbling is warning sign that internal fan may be broken.
Banging: if you’re hearing a lot of banging noises coming from your AC it could mean that some kind of internal mounts or part inside are loose.  It’s also a symptom to replace the compressor.
Buzzing: a buzzing sound coming from your AC might be due to burning of wiring. A good idea would be to check connections for indicators of the sound.  Always contact a professional as electrical components can be very dangerous!
Rattling: although everything may appear okay from the outside, this sound could mean the motor mounts have failed and may be hitting around on the inside.
Screaming: all screaming is a very alarming sound but screaming dealing with you AC could mean that the high pressure sensor is malfunctioning  and it may be good idea to turn unit off.

One way to reduce the amount of times you encounter strange AC sounds is to keep up with bi-annual maintenance.  If you ever feel uneasy about an alarming sound coming from your AC it’s always best to contact your local and trusted HVAC company.  The BELOMAN is always here to help by providing 24/7 emergency service!

Planning Your Summer Vacation: HVAC Edition

B.100 Summer Vacation HVAC Edition

A lot goes into planning a summer vacation as you may know! Don’t let your HVAC be ignored while making your planning list.  Besides packing the swimsuit, sunscreen and planning your excursions there are several things you should check at your home before you go.  We’ve compiled a list of 5 HVAC tips to keep in mind when planning your summer vacation.

  1. Schedule Routine Maintenance: before leaving for your vacation it is a good idea to call your local and trusted HVAC company to perform a tune-up on your system.  This tune up will ensure everything is operating correctly to make you feel confident you’ll have plenty of cool air when you return rather than coming home to a disaster.
  2. Don’t Forget Security: while away on your vacation, passerby’s may notice your house is sitting vacant.  To avoid thieves tampering or stealing your outside unit you can install security lights or a cage to better protect your system.
  3. Change Your Filter: ensuring that your filter is clean and regularly changed can prevent malfunctions while you’re away on vacation.  If your filter is past its changing date and clogged it can cause other issues.  A quick change of your filter can give you more confidence that you’ll come home to a properly functioning system.
  4. Check Your Surge Protection: you never know when a severe thunderstorm will make its way to your area.  To avoid a power surge from a storm or unfortunate mishap, install a surge protector to protect not only your HVAC system, but also other appliances in your home.
  5. Raise The Thermostat: when leaving your home for an extended amount of time raising your thermostat a few degrees is a smart idea to save money on your energy bill.  Why pay to cool your home when no one will be inside?  If you have a programmable thermostat, you can also program the day your family will be arriving home to ensure your home is back at the desired temperature for your arrival.

While it is extremely important to pack the sunscreen, it is very important to keep the 5 tips above in mind as well. How horrible would it be to come home to a hot house because one simple thing was missed!

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!

BELOMAN Knows What Mom Really Wants!

B.97 Mothers Day Clean Air

Mother’s Day weekend is here!  If you are still racking your mind for gift ideas for mom on her special day, BELOMAN is here to help.  Although flowers may be an easy go-to; it might bother her allergies!  What you mother really may want is a clean air solution to help her allergies.

Common Spring Allergies: Is it a common occurrence to hear mom sniffle and cough every spring?  If so, she just might be allergic to pollen!  Nature seems to be doing its best allergy release between February and June.  When pollen makes its way into Mom’s nasal passage, her immune system mistakes the pollen for a hazardous foreign object and begins to attack!  This attack (release of histamines) is what causes her allergies to flare up!  Other common allergens found inside the home that she may be experiencing issues with is dust, mold and pet dander.

Benefits of Clean Air
Decrease asthma & allergy symptoms: cleaner air indoors can definitely help to decrease symptoms and help mom to breathe easier
Improve breathing: breathing higher-quality air improves overall health and helps with other respiratory related problems

Allergy-Reducing Gifts for Mother’s Day
Air Cleaner Accessory: this accessory attaches to mom’s HVAC system to destroy air born allergen particles in the air. BELOMAN offers great Aprilaire products!
New A/C: if the A/C in mom’s home isn’t cooling as it should and she’s forced to open windows (letting in pesky allegens) in order to cool the house, a new efficient AC could be the perfect solution
Houseplant: certain houseplants work to remove chemical toxins from the air to help mom breathe easier
