At Radiant® Plumbing and Air Conditioning – San Antonio, we have many hardworking and dedicated veteran technicians on our team.

This holiday, we’re sharing some valuable home maintenance tips from these veteran pros – our compatriots who have given us all the ability to enjoy our freedom this year – to help you create the perfect environment for all your celebrations. Now, let’s dive into our favorite summertime home comfort tips from our esteemed veteran technicians.

Transform Your Home with Heating & Cooling Updates

San Antonio summers can be scorching, and keeping your home cool is essential. Veteran HVAC technician, Patrick, emphasizes the importance of regular maintenance and upgrades for your cooling system.

Tip from Patrick H.: “Regular maintenance of your HVAC system is crucial for both comfort and energy efficiency. Clean or replace your air filters every month during the summer, and consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat to save on energy costs.”

In addition to regular maintenance, there are several cooling upgrades that can significantly enhance your comfort and save you money in the long run:

  • Heat Pumps: Heat pumps are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional air conditioning systems. They provide efficient cooling during the summer and can also serve as a heating source during the winter, offering year-round benefits.
  • Whole House Fans: These systems can quickly cool your home by drawing in cooler outside air and expelling hot indoor air. They are energy-efficient and can reduce your reliance on air conditioning.
  • Ductless Systems: Ductless mini-split systems offer flexible cooling options for individual rooms or zones in your home. They are highly efficient, easy to install, and can help lower your energy bills by targeting specific areas that need cooling.

Revamp Your Home With These Essential Plumbing Upgrades

As we get older, it’s important to ensure our homes remain safe and accessible. Veteran plumber, Elias, shares his insights on essential plumbing upgrades for aging in place.

Tip from Elias G.: “Install grab bars in the bathroom and consider a walk-in tub or shower to reduce the risk of falls. Upgrading to lever-handle faucets can also make it easier for those with arthritis or limited mobility to use sinks and showers.”

In addition to these safety upgrades, there are several plumbing maintenance tasks that homeowners in San Antonio should address to prevent potential issues:

  • Inspect and Maintain Water Heaters: Ensure your water heater is functioning efficiently by flushing it annually to remove sediment buildup. This helps extend its lifespan and improves performance.
  • Check for Leaks: Regularly inspect your plumbing for leaks, especially in areas prone to high usage like kitchens and bathrooms. Early detection and repair can prevent costly water damage and reduce your water bills.
  • Maintain Drains and Sewer Lines: Avoid clogs by regularly cleaning your drains and being mindful of what goes down them. Consider scheduling a professional inspection of your sewer lines to detect any potential blockages or damage.
