Two Top Plumbing Warning Signs

1. Low water pressure

“Sometimes, the lessening of water pressure from the faucet in your kitchen or bathroom sink is simply a case of gunk buildup in the faucet’s aerator,”.
In these cases, the problem can be remedied by simply screwing off the aerator, cleaning off the gunky residue, and screwing it back onto the faucet. But if that doesn’t restore your pressure to normal, things could be more serious—like a fractured pipe, an eroded waterline, or a water leak in the system. Don’t try to fix these compacted issues yourself—call in a Green Apple Mechanical NJ pro immediately.

2. Slow draining

If you notice your kitchen and bathroom sinks are taking a bit longer than usual to drain, it’s probably best to call in a pro to suss out the source of the clog. Similarly, if your tub, sink, or toilet won’t drain after you attempt to use over-the-counter drain products or plungers, call a plumber, pronto. Trying too hard to release the clog can lead to more pipe damage.

The Importance Of Keeping Your Central Air’s Filter’s Clean

When you clean or replace the filter, you enhance the air conditioner’s efficiency by 5 to 15 percent. To increase A/C unit efficiency, filters should be cleaned or replaced regularly, per the manufacturer’s instructions. This will ensure its efficiency and increase its lifespan. When dirt and debris clog a filter, air doesn’t flow through it as easily, which makes the unit work harder. Furthermore, when air flows through a dirty air filter it may carry debris with it, which could hinder the evaporator coil’s ability to absorb heat.

Keep the Area around the Unit Clear

To help maximize your air conditioner’s efficiency, keep the area around the unit free of objects and foliage to increase airflow and keep its components clean. When you place a large item behind a box fan, it can’t intake air as efficiently. The same concept is applicable to air conditioners. If you do have plants and shrubs around the unit, cut them back so they are at least 2 feet away.

The Importance Of Timely Plumbing Repairs

Make repairs promptly.

If you have a running toilet or dripping faucet, don’t delay in fixing them. Although these might seem like minor problems, they can cause expensive damage to your plumbing. There could also be other underlying problems that could be putting pressure on your system and causing the leak. Additionally, updating your plumbing fixtures can help you save money on your utility bills and extend your system’s life. For example, newer, water-saving toilets flush easily and reduce clogging problems.
Problems with your plumbing system can cause serious damage to your home. Scheduling an inspection with Green Apple Mechanical NJ can help identify and reduce problems before they escalate. We can assist you with repairs and maintenance of your system to increase its longevity.

Top 5 Reasons Why Spring Is The Best Time To Install Central Air

  1. Manufacturer deals
    Many homeowners rely less on their HVAC system during the spring, which means it isn’t top of mind. To remind homeowners of their HVAC needs, many furnace and air conditioner manufacturers offer rebates or deals from April to June.
  2. Good weather
    The nice weather spring brings makes it bearable to do without heating and/or air conditioning for one day while the system is being replaced. Why go without much-needed air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter if you don’t have to?
  3. Flexible schedules
    As temperatures are (usually) not extreme in the spring, there are fewer emergency breakdowns and replacements. This allows our HVAC companies to be more accommodating to an installation date that’s convenient for you.
  4. Planned vs. emergency
    If you plan to have your system replaced, you can set aside money ahead of time. In the case of an emergency replacement, you may not always have the money saved up.
  5. Cost-effective
    By planning a replacement — rather than being surprised with an emergency replacement — you can save money by updating both systems the same day. It’s more cost effective to have an installation technician come to your home one time rather than two. Not only do most furnaces and air conditioners have the same life expectancy and will most likely need to be replaced around the same time, they also rely on each other. If replaced separately, some work may have to be re-done when the second system is installed.

Don’t Overlook These Spring Plumbing Problems

Other Appliances
Take a close look at the supply hoses that run to your icemaker, washing machine and dishwasher. If you see any signs of leaks or bulges, have them replaced as soon as you can. This is especially important if the hoses are more than 10 years old. Make sure to use stainless steel replacement hoses, because they are more durable and will pose less of a risk of bursting.
In addition, don’t forget to clean the lint trap of your washing machine, which is typically located along the internal recess of the unit and helps keep lint from blocking the drain. You may even want to consider having a Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical plumber install a wire trap filter at the end of the drain hose to help improve drainage.
If you have a home with a basement, you more than likely have a sump pump installed. Be sure to check the pump so that you know it will be ready to do its job if flooding should occur. Pour a few buckets of water into the sump pit to make sure the pump will activate. It should turn on automatically, discharge the water and then shut off. Consider installing a flood alarm if you haven’t already, not only in the basement but your bathrooms as well.

Just One Of The Many Benefits Of Central Air

There are solid reasons why adding central air conditioning is the most viable option for bringing cool comfort to an existing home. Window units address comfort issues in single rooms or small enclosed areas only. In the midst of hot weather, residents find themselves increasingly restricted to these “islands” of coolness while the rest of the uncooled house remains stuck in the uncomfortable zone.
In addition, cooling individual rooms with multiple window units is more energy-expensive than running a single central air conditioner, particularly when you consider the substantial advances in efficiency available from new central systems today.
Aesthetics is another a drawback of window units. They’re bulky, block the outdoor view and reduce available light. Living with a noisy compressor and fan mounted in a window unit only a few feet from where you’re sitting or sleeping is never as quiet as a central system, where the loud components are exiled to remote locations like the attic and backyard.

How Central Air Filters Can Save You Money

We recommend not installing central air conditioning without adding a high-efficiency filter to the system. By cleaning the air as it moves through the system, it will reduce pollen and dust in the air inside your house—and it will help keep the inner workings of your AC equipment clean and efficient. A system with a “media filter” with a MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) rating of 12 will add $500 to $1,000 to installation costs but reduce your maintenance costs by about $500 every two years say, experts.

3 Common Things Never To Flush Down Your Toilet

1. Dental floss: Waxed or unwaxed, dental floss becomes a veritable seine net catching all sorts of debris, clogging toilets and sewer pipes. When septic systems are involved, dental floss winds around moving parts and burns out motors.
2. Kitty litter: Some manufacturers say their kitty litter is flushable, but Green Apple Mechanical does not recommend flushing it down the toilet. “Today’s water-saving toilets use only 1.6 gallons of water per flush. That’s not enough water to keep the kitty litter moving,” he explains. Plus, it adds more “stuff” that water purification plants need to remove.
3. Dried poop from a litter box: Toilets are designed for water-soluble waste. When cat poop sits in the litter, it gets dehydrated and becomes hard as a rock. These “petrified poops” can get lodged in the labyrinth of pipes exiting the toilet and cause a clog. So, from now on, bag up your litter — poop and all — and dispose of it in the garbage.

3 Simple Ways To Get The Most From Your Furnace

 1-Decorative Insulation

Carpeting and area rugs on floors help insulate against drafts. They also feel great underfoot, help with soundproofing, and make us feel warmer because they’re so cozy looking.

2- Keep a Good Humidity Level

Most people notice that the air in our homes tends to be really dry in colder weather. It’s not only drying on skin and throats, but it can make us feel colder than we really are. Using a humidifier to bring your humidity level up to about 40% will help transfer heat better. You can lower the setting on the thermostat and not notice it. More humidity is also better for wood floors and furniture and can help prevent asthma and allergy attacks.

3- Make Sure your Garage Door is Sealed

The garage is one of the biggest culprits of energy loss in the modern home. Make sure the garage door is touching all the way down and there aren’t any drafts around the sides are top.
By following these tips, you’ll keep your furnace running smoothly all season long. You’ll also stay cozy and warm for less money.
