Efficient Water Heating Tips

Looking to save on water heating costs? Try these tricks:


Insulate Pipes:

Insulate the first few feet of your hot and cold water lines to reduce heat loss and save energy.


Use Cold Water for Laundry:

Opt for the cold setting when doing your laundry to save on water heating costs.


Upgrade Appliances:

Consider upgrading to an energy-efficient washing machine and water heater for long-term savings.


Opt for an Economical Water Heater:

Invest in a water heater that is designed for energy efficiency to reduce your utility bills.

Clogged Drains?
No Problem!

Clogged drains can be a common issue in your home. Here are a few simple solutions to help you tackle this problem:


Bent Wire Hanger:

If your shower drain is filling up due to hair and soap scum, straighten out a metal wire coat hanger and use the bent end to grab and clear the clog.


Hair Snare:

Invest in a bath and sink hair snare with sharp teeth to catch and prevent surface clogs caused by hair and soap residue.


Baking Soda and Vinegar:

This classic combo can help unclog drains. Pour about five tablespoons of baking soda down the drain, followed by vinegar. Wait for a while, then flush with warm water.


Wet Vacuum:

If you have a wet vacuum, create a seal around the drain opening with the plunger head and use the vacuum to remove the blockage.

*Remember to cover the exhaust opening with a cloth to avoid a mess.
