HVAC Tips for Your Fourth of July BBQ

Fourth of July is right around the corner and it’s perhaps the biggest barbecue weekend of the year! If you’re hosting an Independence Day celebration, make sure that your plumbing and air conditioning systems are in good working order. There’s nothing worse than an unexpected disaster on the day of your big bbq. Follow these HVAC tips to make the most of your 4th of July weekend

Keep Your Windows Closed: If you’re hosting a party, chances are your guests will be coming in and out of the house all day. Keep your house cool, by keeping your windows closed. You’ll save on your air conditioning bill and won’t put a strain on your unit.

Don’t Treat Your Disposal Like a Garbage Can: Many bbq foods can do damage to your garbage disposal. Think twice before tossing your leftovers down the drain. Food particles are the leading cause of clogged drains and can lead to bigger plumbing issues throughout your house. Make sure to scrape off food remnants into the garbage before rinsing your plates.

Fire Up The Grill (With Caution): Test your gas plumbing before your guests arrive to ensure that your grill is working safely and effectively. After all, there will be no barbecue without- well- a barbecue!

Inspect Your Bathroom Plumbing: At the first sign of a plumbing issue, turn to your local professionals. There is nothing more embarrassing than dealing with a clogged toilet when your guests arrive. If you notice water pooling on the ground, strange noises coming from your toilet or having to hold the handle down completely to flush, call for help before it becomes a problem.
