Seasonal Tips for Autumn

Plumbing
Be sure to disconnect all hoses from outside faucets. A connected hose can prevent proper drainage from the faucet and may freeze and damage the faucet.

If you have an outside faucet that is not a frost-proof faucet, be sure to know where the nearest valve is that can be shut off to isolate water from the faucet. If one is nearby that can be used to turn off the water supply to the faucet, turn it off and open the faucet to drain the remaining water away for the winter.

If you need to have an outside faucet replaced with a freeze-proof one, contact us at 717.299.5641 or email us to schedule a service call.


Heating and Cooling
Turn on your heating system now, before it gets cold. Is it working properly? Do you need to have any filters changed? Now is the time to see if it is working satisfactorily.

You want to be sure to have your heating system checked before it turns cold outside!  Contact us at 717.299.5641 or email us to schedule a service call.  We will inspect your system and do a cleaning and service check for you.

Electrical
Thinking about the holidays? Halloween? Christmas is getting here sooner than you realize and it will be time to put up the holiday lights. Do you have enough receptacles, both inside and outside?  Are your outside ones protected with ground fault circuit interrupters?

Are your receptacles working properly? Contact us at 717.299.5641 or email us.  We can inspect your existing ones and add more, if you desire.
