Air-Filtration System Maintenance

For air-filtration systems, regular maintenance is something your can perform on your own. Maintenance on an air-filtration system usually just means changing or cleaning the filter every three to nine months. But you should check with the manufacturer’s specific recommendations. Changing or cleaning your filter on a regular basis will ensure the best filtration for your home as well as extend the life of the system. If you need any assistance or would like to install an air-filtration system, feel free to talk with one of our professionals at Downey PHCE.

General Plumbing Maintenance

For the plumbing in your home, an annual plumbing inspection is recommended. Our professional plumber will check the plumbing and equipment in your home, letting you know if there’s anything to repair or replace, and to alert you about possible impending issues. A plumbing inspection typically will include the inspection of your water heater, water softener, inside/outside faucets, sinks, pipes, garbage disposal, toilets, sump pump and its discharge line (backup pump, if you have one), well tank or city water supply and meter, shut-off valves, and waste stacks. This inspection will usually ward off any plumbing emergencies during the year by giving you an accurate assessment of the plumbing’s condition in your home.

Water Heater Maintenance

For water heaters, an annual inspection and service is recommended, usually included in your annual plumbing inspection (any required service would be separate). Either have one of our professional plumbers perform the required maintenance, especially if you’re uncomfortable doing it yourself, or do it yourself. To keep your water heater running efficiently, you want to check the pressure valve, check the anode rod, flush the tank (due to sediment buildup), adjust the temperature (if needed), and insulate the pipes and tank (if needed). Once again, one of our professional plumbers can easily do this service for you to help in extending the life of your water heater.

Sump Pump Maintenance

For sump pumps, an annual inspection is recommended (start of spring is best), usually included in your annual plumbing inspection. Our professional plumber will check the sump pump pit for debris that could interfere with its operation. The plumber will also unplug the pump and take a look at its intake, impeller, and air bleed or weep hole. The float valve will be checked by dumping about five gallons of water into the pit. If you’re in an especially flood-prone area of Bowling Green, Ohio, our plumber may recommend a backup sump pump, which can save your home from flooding during power outages.

“As is always true, I was contacted once the guys were on the way and they arrived at the appointment time. They were polite and patient (since I was asking questions), and the generator was PM'd and my front outdoor spigot leak repaired.”

“We had two service staff on site simultaneously this week to address the yearly service on both our air conditioner and and our automatic gas powered generator. I cannot say enough about the staff on site and in the office from Downey. Always professional and courteous. I have used them for 10 years and during this time we have used them to do every aspect they offer – plumbing work and repairs, electrical, and installation of water heater, furnace, and gas generator. I would not use anyone else, and I have never had a bad apple in the bunch visit our home. They are wonderful. And oh those booties! I love they take the time to put those on – it's a little thing, but impressive the service team takes that much care when entering your home. I can't say enough about Downey – love them all!”
