Happy New Year! Here at Santa Fe Express Plumbing & Drain, we compiled a list of five New Year’s plumbing and heating tips to help you ring in the new year. Please take some time to read through these tips to help keep your plumbing and heating systems working as well as they can throughout 2021. So, without further ado, here are the five tips and tricks our professional plumbers and heating technicians came up with!
Tip 1 – Heating – Schedule A Heating System Maintenance Visit As Soon As Possible
It’s no secret that regular, professional maintenance for your heating system goes a long way towards keeping it running exactly as it should. Maintenance also reduces your need for repairs and can give you a head’s up on any potential future problems.
So, our first New Year’s tip is to schedule a winter maintenance service call for your heating system. And, just so you’re aware of what a maintenance visit entails, here’s a list of what our techs do for each tune-up job:
- Change or clean your filters.
- Perform a system diagnostic
- Clean your entire unit, inside and out
- Program your thermostat (if you so desire)
Tip 2 – Plumbing – Flush Your Water Heater
As for our second New Year’s tip, our plumbers recommend you flush your water heater this winter. Flushing your water heater helps remove build-up, prevent future build-up problems, and can even help your hot water taste better! So, do your water heater a favor and flush it out this January. And, if you aren’t sure how to flush your water heater yourself, you can always contact our team of plumbers for help! We’d be more than happy to lend you a hand.

Tip 3 – Heating – Reprogram Your Thermostat For Winter
Our third New Year’s tip is to make sure your thermostat is programmed for the winter months. Unfortunately, most people don’t bother reprogramming their thermostats by the season. Doing so can help you save money on your energy bills, keep your home far more comfortable, and help ensure your heating system keeps running year after year. If you’re unsure how to set your thermostat up for optimal winter heating, then don’t fret. Our HVAC technicians are always standing by to help. Contact us to learn more about optimal thermostat programming at your next convenience.
Tip 4 – Plumbing – Get Your Drains Cleaned
The fourth tip we have for you this new year is to get your drains professionally cleaned out. Even if you don’t have a current clog problem, it would still behoove you to get your drains cleaned out at least once a year. Professionally cleaned drains reduce drain odor, help prevent leaks, helps reduce clogging, and can even potentially save you from an emergency drain cleaning service down the line. So, if you haven’t had your drains cleaned this year, now’s a perfect time! Contact us to learn more about it today.
