How to Prep Your Home for Summer
With summer swiftly on its way, its time to prepare for soaring temperatures and high heat. It is always better to get your home ready to deal with the intense temperatures of summer before the season starts. Preparing your home is not difficult and involves more than just changing your home’s interior theme. Take care of these simple checks to make sure your home is ready for the next season!

Tips to Prepare Your Home For Summer Time
How Are Your Window Screens?
Bugs are a hallmark of summer; you can bet on thousands upon thousands of pests. Take the time to check your window screens. Holes and tears can allow pests into your home, causing problems for you and your family. Have these repaired as soon as possible.

Storms are more frequent during these months. Inspect your landscape and make sure you cut any branches from trees that can cause damage to your home. At the same time, see if you should plant any new plants. Trees and shrubs can help your home with energy efficiency by breaking up the sun as it hits your home.

Check Your Attic
During the winter, your attic insulation took a lot of damage. Check it. If you notice any moisture or if it looks a little low, you may need new insulation. Remember that insulation also keeps pests out and can even help keep the cool in your home this summer.

AC Check Up
Have your AC inspected! Having your air conditioner inspected can help determine any pre-existing problems and get your AC back in shape. There is nothing worse than kicking on your air conditioner this summer just to find out you need a new system. Prevent it by taking care of this early.

Many homeowners forget about their water heater. After all, if it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind. However, water heaters require regular maintenance and repairs just like other appliances. If you notice any of these signs of common water heater problems, you might need water heater repair or replacement.

Strange Noises
common water heater problemsIf you hear unusual noises from your hot water heater, it’s not good. Popping sounds often indicate that the water is boiling inside the tank, which can be very dangerous. These sounds come from the sediment or heating element burning. You might be able to replace a part, but depending on your individual situation, it may be wiser to replace the heater altogether.

Water Temperature Issues
Perhaps the most common water heater problems are temperature issues. If your water is not hot enough, you can usually turn up the thermostat a bit to increase water temperature. No hot water at all? If you have a gas heater, the pilot light may have gone out. If not, you may need to replace the thermocouple or heating element.

If your water heater is leaking, it’s time to replace it. Call a plumber as soon as you can, or else you could end up with several gallons of water flooding your home. Don’t ignore even small leaks from your water heater, or you could risk a much more costly repair.

Are you looking to install a heat pump in your home? Have you heard about them but aren’t quite sure what they are? We’re here to share with you the top benefits of a heat pump in case you’re looking to make the switch.

Reduces Energy Use
Because of the way in which heat pumps heat and cool your home, they use less energy than traditional central air systems. Rather than generating heat, a heat pump transfers heat from one place to another. In the winter, it pulls heat inside your home, and pulls hot air outside in the summer. There’s no need for combustion, making heat pumps a little greener and safer than your standard furnace.

Doesn’t Dry Out Indoor Air
Lubbock tends to have dry air, which can wreak havoc on your skin, especially in the winter. Want to stay warm without running the heater and a humidifier? One of the benefits of a heat pump is that is does not dry out your air. More humidity in your indoor air can even help your home feel warmer, which is always helpful during the freezing temperatures.

Uniform Heating Throughout
Many homeowners with furnaces experience drafts, hot spots, or fluctuations in temperature throughout their home. With a heat pump, you’ll get even, consistent heating and cooling everywhere in your house.

What’s Causing My Pipes To Leak?
leaky pipeNo matter what type of property own, leaky pipes are bound to happen, if you have a functioning plumbing system of course. So yet again, you have to call up a professional to come fix it. But have you ever wondered what exactly is causing your pipes to leak? The plumbing experts at JD’s One Hour are here to shine some light on some reasons for leaky pipes throughout Lubbock, TX.

Deterioration: If your property has been around for a number of years, it’s likely that your plumbing system has been too. After a number of years and extended use, your pipes can exprience rust, which begins to eat away at your pipes, leaving space for leaks or even cause your pipes to burst.
Poor Workmanship: Although it’s not the most likely reasoning, it is the case every now and then. Maybe a DIYer took it upon themselves to handle prior issues but left the pipes in less than good condition. It’s likely that joints were not replaced correctly, thus leaving an opening for water to escape.
Temperature Changes: There is hot and cold water running throughout your plumbing system consistently. The constant fluctuation in temperature causes your pipes to expand and contract, ultimately leading to some creases and cracks somewhere along the line.
