Your air conditioning system helps make life more comfortable in the cooler and warmer months by heating and cooling the air inside your home. However, in order for your air conditioning system to function properly, it requires regular maintenance. Here are some tips for maintaining your air conditioning system.
Cleaning Your Evaporator
When it comes to maintaining your air conditioning system, most instances require the work of a professional. However, basic cleaning tasks can be done on your own. You should clean your evaporator each year, but only if it is accessible. You can access your evaporator by removing the insulation and the access plate. Use a stiff brush to clean the bottom of the evaporator, and then clean the tray that lies below.
Window units typically provide conditioned air to a single room or area. However, the components are similar to a central system. You can maintain your window unit by cleaning or replacing the filter behind the front grille at least once a month. At the same interval, clean your evaporator and condenser coils, using a vacuum cleaner to remove dust. Finally, ensure that the selector switch is in working condition so that your air conditioning system works on all settings.
Maintaining Your Fan
Another component of your air conditioning system that requires maintenance is your fan. Use a vacuum and a cloth to remove any dust and debris that may have built up your fan blades. Since the vibrations of your air conditioner may shake things loose, check to see if your fan’s fasteners are in place. If they are loose, tighten them with a screwdriver.

If your toilet is incessantly running, it can be as annoying as it is inconvenient. It can also waste hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water over the long run, significantly impacting your water bill each month. This video tells you what to do if your toilet won’t stop running.
If you look inside the tank on top of your toilet, you should see a flapper or a ball that covers a valve on the bottom of the tank. If your flapper or ball is damaged or corroded, it will not create a proper seal and lead to running. Flush the toilet to see if the rod or chain that connects to the flapper or ball is damaged, caught, or bent. If you pour food coloring into the tank and it ends up in the bowl, your flapper or ball should be replaced.

I have a warranty on my house but they sent me 3 separate contractors who couldn't/ wouldn't do the job.

After the county came out to check my lines at 8pm, it was determined the problem was in my house sewer line. I randomly picked Ace Plumbing from the yellow pages. So glad I did! At first they said it would be between 5-7Am before they could get to me as they were swamped due to the storm. But when he heard I could not turn water on or flush...
