Plumbing Pointers

Clogged drains can be a real hassle, but before calling a professional, try these simple DIY fixes. For sinks and tubs, use a plunger or a drain snake to dislodge the blockage. If that doesn’t work, you can create a homemade drain cleaner by mixing baking soda and vinegar. Let the mixture fizz for a few minutes before flushing with hot water.

Heating and Cooling Hacks

  1. Replace your air filters regularly. Clogged filters make your HVAC system work harder, leading to higher energy bills and potential breakdowns.
  2. Clean the coils on your air conditioning unit. Removing dirt and debris from the coils improves efficiency and extends the unit’s lifespan.
  3. Seal any air leaks around windows and doors. This simple task can reduce energy costs significantly by preventing heated or cooled air from escaping.

Electrical Essentials

While major electrical work should be left to professionals, there are some minor tasks you can tackle safely. For example, you can replace light switches, outlets, and light fixtures with the power turned off and by following the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Additionally, you can install circuit breakers or GFCI outlets to improve your home’s electrical safety.
