Are whole-house generators worth it?
Yes, a generator will definitely pay for itself eventually. Over time, your home’s generator will save you the cost of replacing spoiled food and damaged frozen pipes in the event of a power outage. It will also help keep you comfortable and minimize disruption to your daily life during power outages. You can even choose between a manual and automatic power transfer for your generator. With an automatic transfer of power, your generator will keep your home’s essential equipment running even if you aren’t home, protecting your house from damage.
How do you fix a toilet that is constantly running?
More often than not the flapper in the bottom of the tank is the cause of the problem, which you can simply replace. Also the chain can be too long and get caught under the flapper. The chain should be long enough to reach from the lever arm to the top of the flapper without pulling on it.
I had someone out last July to check out my refrigerator because the water dispenser is very slow. They looked at it and said to change the water supply valve kit. Well, after he left, it went back to normal. But it didn't last very long. So I think maybe we do need to replace the water supply valve.
Unfortunately, since more than 6 months have passed, we need to rediagnose everything and send a new technician. If you want, we can do it tomorrow or anytime. Our service diagnostics last a month; after that, if you didn't go through with the repair, we still have to come back. Maybe we don't have to take out the fridge. But if you want, we can come over tomorrow to check it out and help you fix it. Our technicians will call you tomorrow 30 minutes before they arrive at your location.
I want to replace my two-handed faucet with a single-handed faucet. Is this possible?
Except for in rare cases, this should give you no problem. Within the plumbing industry, fixture dimensions and sink openings have standard sizes. Knowing the size of your sink opening will help you in the process of buying new plumbing fixtures.
Should my boiler be serviced annually?
YES! The safety controls on your boiler should be checked at the beginning of the heating season every year. A little preventive maintenance goes a long way.
How to replace an electrical socket?
Replacing an electrical socket is an easy do-it-yourself project that just about anyone can accomplish. It's essential to take proper safety precautions when working with electricity, so make sure you shut off the breaker supplying power to the socket before doing any work. Begin by loosening the screws on the cover plate above the socket. You will use these screws to attach the new socket, so remove them and set them aside. Next, unscrew the wires from the terminals on the bottom of the socket by loosening their terminal screws and compressing the spring. You may have three or four wires from the previous socket; make sure to label them as you take them off so that you can properly reconnect them on the new socket. Once your old socket has been removed, you can affix your new one by matching up the terminal screws with their corresponding colored wires and tightening them. Screw the cover plate and turn on the power to test it out! Make sure your work is secure and safe, and enjoy your updated electrical socket!
