Plumbing Maintenance

1. Inspect for leaks: Regularly check under sinks, around toilets, and near appliances for signs of water damage or leaks.

2. Clean drains: Use a mixture of baking soda and vinegar monthly to keep drains clear and prevent clogs.

3. Test water pressure: Low water pressure can indicate underlying issues. If you notice a decrease, contact Braga Bros for an inspection.

Heating System Care

1. Change filters: Replace furnace filters every 1-3 months to maintain efficiency and air quality.

2. Schedule annual tune-ups: Have a professional from Braga Bros inspect and service your heating system before the cold season begins.

3. Insulate pipes: Protect exposed pipes in unheated areas to prevent freezing and potential bursts.

Air Conditioning Upkeep

1. Clean condenser unit: Remove debris from around the outdoor unit and gently clean the fins to ensure proper airflow.
