What Causes Pipes to Burst in the Summer and How to Prevent Them

Burst pipes are typically a concern in the winter, due to freezing temperatures. Unfortunately, your pipes are not safe just because it is summer. Here are some reasons your pipes can burst during the warmer months and what you can do to stop it from happening!Burst

Older Pipes
Pipes will degrade and deteriorate over time, like most things. Metal pipes are especially susceptible to corrosion, while plastic pipes break down naturally over time. When the pipes in your home age, they slowly lose their ability to handle the pressures they are constantly subjected to. As your pipes deteriorate, they become more and more likely to burst. Your best defense against aging pipes is to replace them before they fail you. 

Pipe Erosion and Corrosion
When your pipes erode or corrode, they create weak spots in your piping. These weak spots are vulnerable and more likely to leak and burst because they can no longer withstand the water pressure. Stay ahead of erosion and corrosion by having your pipes inspected annually.

Also, keep in mind that hot water has the potential of causing the soil around your outdoor pipes to move, which can damage and even break the pipes. This is especially true when the weather is dryer. While this typically is a larger concern for water mains found in the street, the pipes leading up to your home is also vulnerable. If you are concerned about your outdoor pipes, you can have one of our expert plumbers come to your home and assess your risks.

Clogged Pipes
A burst pipe is just one of the concerns caused by a clogged pipe. If your water happens to have a high mineral content, you may have extra reasons to be concerned. Over time, mineral deposits will build up in your pipes. This build up reduces the area in your pipes, restricting water flow and increasing pressure. In cases when the pressure exceeds the pipe’s threshold, it can cause the pipe to burst. If you happen to live in an area where the water has a higher mineral count, also known as hard water, having a water softener installed by one of our expert plumbers is an effective method to protect your pipes. Water softeners are designed to remove most of the minerals in your water and help prevent your pipes from clogging.

Poorly Installed Pipes
Unfortunately, not every plumber has as high standards as we do and poorly installed pipes are at a greater risk of failure, leaks and bursting. Whether they are improperly soldered, poorly insulated or inadequately supported, if your pipes were not installed correctly, you could be in for some unpleasant surprises. If you have any concerns about how your pipes were installed, call us at 
(866) 844-3770, to have your plumbing system inspected by a true plumbing professional.

Cut Your Cooling Costs with These Six Money-Saving Tips

The summer’s heat and humidity have arrived and with them comes the need to cool your home around the clock. This constant cooling of your home will undoubtedly cause an increase in your monthly utility bills. Cooling your home really is not optional when the temperatures start hitting the 90’s, but you do have some methods you can use to help keep the cooling bill lower.


Six Tips to Cut Cooling Costs

1. Utilize Ceiling Fans: cooling

Ceiling fans help your air conditioning system by taking on some of the work. By circulating the cool air in your home, your AC will not have to work as hard to keep you cool and comfortable.

2. Seal Leaky Windows

Windows that are poorly sealed and leaking air are inefficient and they are costing you more money when you are running your AC. Utilizing weather strips and caulk to seal up any leaks will help save you money on your cooling bill.

3. Replace Your Furnace Filter Regularly 

The air filter in your furnace will naturally become dirty over time. Dust, pet hair and debris are just some of the elements that can cling to your filter, slowing the air flow. Thus, a dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to work harder, to move cool air throughout your home. It is best to change your filter as recommended by the manufacturer.

4. Close Your Curtains 

This is probably the easiest cooling cost-cutting task you can perform. When sunlight pours into your home, it warms it. So, by simply closing your curtains, especially those where the sun beams in the brightest, will help keep your home cooler.

5. Have a Programmable Thermostat Installed 

Programmable thermostats are extremely useful little gadgets. They allow you to reduce the amount of energy needed to cool your home and make sure your home is still comfortable when you get home. You program these thermostats to adjust the temperature to a comfortable level when you are home and set it to run less often when you are not there. No more wasting extra money cooling your home, when no one is there. You can see real savings on your monthly energy bill by simply adjusting your thermostat seven to ten degrees, eight hours a day when no one is home.

6. Have Your AC Inspected Annually

Having your air conditioning unit serviced once a year is one of the best ways to ensure that your equipment is running as efficiently as possible, which will save you more money on your cooling bill.  Call on the experts at Team Tiger to perform your annual AC Super Tune-Up and Safety Inspection today at (866) 844-3770  and be ready for whatever summer throws your way.

The School Year is Ending! Are You Ready for Summer Break?

It is May and we all know what that means, the school year is almost over! With summer break approaching quickly, you may be trying to plan ways to keep the kiddos entertained for the next few months. Fear not! Here are some helpful activities you can do with the kids this summer!

summer

Summer Break Activities:

1. Water Fun

Beat the heat this summer with the kids by breaking out the hose! Kiddie pools, water balloon fights and running through sprinklers are some of the best benefits of dealing with the summer heat! The good news is that your family can enjoy the waterworks, without sending your monthly bill through the roof. Try only filling kiddie pools about halfway, instead of all the way to the top, most of that water will just splash out and be wasted anyway. If you’re using sprinklers, try running the hose on a lower setting versus having it going at full blast. Your kids will still have fun playing with the sprinkler and you’ll save a little money on your water bill.

2. Light Reading

One downside to summer is that kids can actually lose some of what they learned from the school year over the break. Encourage kids to read more to help fight against this knowledge loss. There are several great summer reading programs in our area. The more time kids spend reading, the less time they are spending on video games, watching TV or bugging you because they are bored. So, if you are looking for a way to keep the kids busy this summer, place them in a well-lit room, with a good book!

3. Plant a Garden

A small garden, even just a simple herb garden, can be a fun activity for you and your kids to do over the school break. Gardening is a great way to teach kids about patience, the seasons, watering practices and it gets them outdoors for awhile!

4. Camp at Home

Grab a tent and head out to the backyard. Backyard camping is a lot of fun and conveniently located next to your own personal bathroom! String up some outdoor lights and roast marshmallows over a fire pit if you have one and tell funny campfire stories. 

5. Stay Cool in the Kitchen

Baking is always a fun activity, but a hot kitchen can be an unpleasant place to be during the hot summer months. Skip the part where you add extra heat to home and opt for making no-bake treats with the kiddos!

Have a Great Summer Everyone!

4 Reasons Why You Should Hug a Plumber Today!

Happy Hug a Plumber Day!

That is right; every April 25th is designated as Hug a Plumber Day. While this may seem like an odd holiday to celebrate, plumbers are extremely important members of society and we can prove it to you.

Here are 4 Reasons Why You Should Hug a Plumber Today!

1.  They Keep Everything Flowing

In the busy world that we live in, it is easy to take for granted that our toilets will flush when we push the handle or that water will come out when we turn on our faucets. Unfortunately, things break, drains clog and basements flood, then what? Then you contact a plumber to come and put your life back in order. 

2. Plumbers Make House Calls

Doctors do not even do this anymore. When you need one of our plumbers, they arrive at your doorstep in a fully-stocked truck, ready to fix the problem. 

3. Plumbers Help Protect Your Health

Clean water and properly functioning sanitation facilities play a vital role in keeping you and your family healthy. When you invite a plumber into your home to repair a backed up sewage drain or diagnose why your faucet is spewing brown sludge, you are actually taking steps to keep your family healthy, as well as, comfortable. 

4. They Train Hard

Licensed Plumbers do not fall out of trees. No, they spend a great deal of time training to perfect their craft. Plus this training is not a one-time experience, for example, our plumbing team undergoes ongoing training, to remain at the top of their field. 


If you come across a plumber today, feel free to give them a big hug!
