BROOKLYN, N.Y., April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Petri Plumbing and Heating, Inc., a leading plumbing and home service company, serving Brooklyn and Manhattan since 1906, is offering preventative maintenance tips to help homeowners better address plumbing needs during the seasonal shift from winter to spring.
"The temperature change can cause damages from leaky pipes, overrun heating systems as well as faulty filters. Preparation is a cost effective practice for Brooklyn and Manhattan residents," said Michael Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing. "Our early seasonal services are in place to help New York City families feel at ease in their homes all year long."
Petri's plumbing services include preventative measures that include valve tagging and plumbing inspections to help homeowners save hundreds of dollars in water and utility bills, as well as help avoid costly repairs. According to New York City Environmental Protection, the rate of water charges for the average customer will increase by 2.97 percent this year while water bills for the average household are estimated to reach $1,055 per year. Along with water conservation and plumbing maintenance, Petri will begin focusing home inspection services to help identify any issues that may develop with the temperature change, from water tank failures to indoor air quality.
"Families in New York should enjoy the beautiful weather without the worry of a possible plumbing failure," said Chris Petri, assistant operations manager. "There are simple things they can do to prevent certain plumbing disasters and we want to work with our community to inform them about these economic strategies."
Petri Plumbing's technicians are offering advice that homeowners can employ to benefit the long term health of their home, including:
- Check toilets for leaks and worn-out parts. If you have to hold down the handle, this is an indication of worn-out tank parts.
- Place drain strainers in your sinks and shower to help prevent clogging.
- Double check hoses and water supply pipes for cracks caused by trapped frozen water.
- Schedule a plumbing walk-through to inspect sump pumps, drainage, pipes and more.
