As a homeowner, you know there are some jobs you don’t want to tackle. Work on electrical wiring, circuits, and breakers? You’re likely worried that’s a shortcut to a shocking experience. Reroof your house in the middle of a Texas summer? The only place you want to be when it’s over a hundred degrees outside is indoors with the AC set on high.
Many people, though, feel they can do their own plumbing repairs. As we’ll discuss below, there are good reasons to hire a professional plumber.

For once, wouldn’t it be nice to think about your plumbing and not have it be a crisis? There’s a lot to be said for being proactive instead of reactive.

Summer is on its way, and the weather in our part of the world routinely hits triple digits during the hottest months. That makes a reliable air conditioner a necessity as much as a luxury. If your system suffers a breakdown for even a few hours, it can be catastrophic for your home: turning it into an oven and forcing you to go about your life in oppressive heat.
A good air conditioning repair service can be worth its weight in gold when it comes to such breakdowns. But how do you know which one is right for you? There are plenty of qualified services in the area. How can you separate the best ones from the ones who are merely “good enough”?

Sooner or later, every homeowner is going to experience a clog or stoppage in their drain system. It’s one of the most common issues any household can experience, and it can be caused by a great number of factors.
When a clog shows up in your plumbing, you may be tempted to correct the problem with a store-bought solution such as a chemical cleanser or perhaps a plumbing snake. In most cases, however, that is a big mistake. If you spot a clog in your home’s plumbing system, you should always call in a professional plumbing service to take care of it.

Summer is coming, and when it hits your air conditioner is going to be more vital than ever. Temperatures in our neck of the woods can easily hit triple digits, and without a reliable air conditioner, your home will soon turn into an oven. Now is the time to check your system for signs of trouble, in the spring when the need for your air conditioner is reduced. Anything out of the ordinary should be grounds for turning the air conditioner off and calling in a repair service.
Among the more common problems encountered by air conditioners is leaking refrigerant, which can cause serious trouble if it’s not dealt with in a timely fashion. There are a lot of misconceptions about what refrigerant does and why leaks are an issue. Here’s a breakdown of why leaking refrigerant spells trouble for your air conditioning system.

With the arrival of spring, your air conditioner is going to see increasing use, and just a few short weeks from now, you’ll likely be running it all day every day to fight our high Texas heat. That means now is the time to check your system for any significant problems it may be experiencing. Doing so means you can address the problem before the weather turns too hot: saving you money and effort in the process.
One sure-fire way to check for trouble is to schedule a service session with a trained technician. But you yourself can often determine if something is wrong with your system simply by observing abnormal behavior. And one of the easiest things to check for is a process known as short cycling. If you spot it, you need to call a repair service immediately.

Clogs are one of the most common issues affecting your household plumbing. You can keep them at bay by watching what you throw down the drain, and refraining from doing so with problematic materials like hot grease or potato peelings. But sooner or later, every drain will develop a clog.
