Sump Pump Services
Your sump pump has worked tirelessly to keep your basement clean and dry – until now. Most homeowners tend to forget about their sump pump until their basement begins to flood. Usually found in the corner of your basement in a hole called a sump pit, sump pumps pump out water that pools in the pit. Regular inspection of your sump pump will help prevent unwanted water damage to your home.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Sump pump maintenance will generally include examining your sump pump for any signs of rust or corrosion. If your sump pump requires lubrication, a technician will apply the recommended lubricant and remove any debris found in the sump pump.
Sump Pump Repair Service
Although it’s out of sight, a sump pump that needs repairs will show signs of damage. It may include the following:
- Moldy or mildew smell: Your sump pump needs cleaning.
- Pump stops activating: The sump pump needs a new float or switch.
- Loud noises: Sump pumps should operate quietly.
Along with the obvious signs of repair, if your sump pump hasn’t been in operation due to drought, it might fail to operate when needed. Schedule a tune-up with a technician to ensure that your pump is in excellent working condition.

How can I reduce my energy costs for heating?
- Upgrade to a high-efficiency furnace — New high-efficiency furnaces use up to 50% less fuel than an older system. It can save you up to 25 percent of your home-heating costs in one year, and within a few years, you’ll have recovered the initial cost of replacing/upgrading your furnace. Choosing a model with an energy efficient motor can save 20 to 50 percent of the energy needed to continuously operate a fan motor. Let us show you the advantages of replacing your old furnace today.
- Have an annual maintenance performed — Having an annual maintenance performed on your furnace by a licensed technician will help ensure it operates at its peak efficiency and catches any potential breakdowns before they occur.
- Install a programmable thermostat — A programmable thermostat enables you to control your home’s temperature when you’re away or asleep. For every 1° you lower your thermostat for seven hours per day, you save one percent on your heating bill.
- Don’t block vents in well-used rooms — Keep your supply and return air vents free of objects like blinds, carpets or furniture so your furnace can operate efficiently and there is even heat distribution.
- Install ceiling fans — Change the direction of airflow on your ceiling fans. In the winter, the blades should operate in a clockwise direction helping to push the warm air from the ceiling down into the room.
