Water seems to be something that parts of the world either have too much or too little. In a time when there are parts of the country that are so dry that vast areas are in fire danger, you would think that the rest of the country would try to conserve the water that they have. The fact of the matter is, however, there are a number of households and businesses in America where an embarrassing amount of water is wasted on a daily basis.
Although there are a number of products that could help homes and businesses of all size save water, we live in a time where as many as 10% of U.S. homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more a day. Even though the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that Americans could use as much as 20% less water by installing water-efficient fixtures and appliances, there are still many property owners who do not take advantage of these options.
Inspections and Plumbing Services Can Help Property Owners Save Water and Money

“What goes up, must come down” is a familiar saying that brings peace of mind. That is especially true if you live in an apartment or high rise with many flights of stairs. Then it is fantastic to have elevator service!

One key factor to good elevator service is elevator inspection. The presence of an elevator repair service is a comforting one, and the need for elevator repair is really not the norm.

This “aging in place” trend has led to an increa

After all, your roof is one of your home’s biggest protections against the outside world and a roof that does not work in the way that it should be is a roof that is not serving its full purpose.

A home is a vast and complicated thing, from its air conditioning and heating to the roof to the carpet to interior decor. One of the more basic, but no less essential, aspects of a house to maintain and upgrade is its doors and windows, and whether do it yourself (DIY) or by hiring a door and window company, door replacements and window design can be a snap, and a home can look and function wonderfully after some hard work is done.

Having old doors and windows in a house isn’t just an eyesore, it’s a sink for money and can affect a house’s climate control. In fact, the heat gained or lost through windows is responsible for 25% to 30% of a home’s heating and cooling energy use, and if these windows are drafty or not up to modern standards, that equates to wasted energy. Similarly, windows older than 15 years are prone to drafts, getting stuck in their frames, and overall driving up the energy bill, and the same could apply to old doors, too, with poor sealing and worn-out or warpe
