Drip, drip, drip! The constant sound of the faucet dripping can make anyone crazy, especially in the middle of the night when you are all snug in the bed. If you have the patience of tolerating the sound of the leaky faucet, that's great.
However, you should know that if you prolong fixing a leaky faucet, you are giving way to another problem to occur. For this reason, we have decided to share with you some tips to fix the leaky water faucet, but first, gather these tools:
You need to follow the following steps to stop the problem of a leaky faucet:
Locate the main water supply line in your home and shut off the water.
Use flat head screwdriver to take off any decorative aspects of the handle knobs. Use the screwdriver to unscrew the screws from the handle. You can use penetrating oil to loosen the handle so it comes off the stem easily.
With your wrench, loosen the packing nut, and then remove the stem. Your faucet might come off or you may need to twist it off to remove it from the valve. Once you have removed all the parts, check to see if they have sustained any damage.
Inside the valve, you will find the O-ring and the washer. Since they could be the primary cause for the leak, you should replace them with new ones that you bought. Your O-ring and washer must fit in perfectly in the valve so you have to ensure that they are the right fit.
If you do not know the size of the O-ring and washer you should buy, examine the valve seat to see if the sides fit a flat or cone shaped washer. Furthermore, you can take the O-ring to a hardware store to confirm its size. You can also purchase a bag containing different sizes of O-rings.
You need reassemble all the parts you took off in order starting from O-ring/washer, stem, packing nut, screws, and handles. Turn on the knob to determine if you were able to stop the faucets from leaking.
If you were not able to stop the faucet from leaking, it's likely due to loose parts, broken plumbing, corrosion in the valve seat, and worn out seals. If you uncover any of these problems while you attempt to fix the leaky faucet yourself, contact a professional plumber.
With these expert tips, you will be able to assess the problem and fix it. If you are not able to tend to the problem and uncover serious issues with your plumbing, you need to contact Bonfe.
The advancement in technological gadgets has prompted most households to invest in surge protectors for their home. Yet, there are still houses that do not see the need to equip their house with a whole house surge protector. What those households do not know is that it only takes one spike or surge in power to damage their costly electronics, rendering them useless.
Your expensive electronics are not the only ones at risk, but your lives are at risk as well. The short bursts of energy can cause the house to burn down. You and your loved ones do not want to become a victim of a power surge. Therefore, do not take a risk, but learn about the importance of protecting your home with a whole house surge protector.
A whole house surge protector is a type of appliance that protects the house's electrical devices from unusual surges in voltage. It limits the attempts of the voltage provided to an electrical device such as a fridge, TV, handheld devices, and more. It does this by blocking unnecessary voltages by driving them to the ground.
Electrical sockets throughout the day consistently provide electricity to anything that is plugged into the sockets. At times, the voltage can increase out of nowhere, posing a problem for the devices plugged into the outlets.Why Does this Occur?
Power outages, malfunctions, and lightning strikes are responsible for the sudden and unexpected surges or spikes in voltage. Do not confuse a spike with a surge, as they are two different things.
A spike is short whereas a surge lasts for a couple of seconds. When surges begin to occur and their frequency begins to grow, then there is a definite problem with the electrical system. Both types of electrical currents can damage your electronics and your house. Therefore, you need to equip your home with a whole house surge protector.
Standard outlets are helpless against spikes and power surges, until you install a whole house surge protector to defend them from the electrical currents. You can purchase whole house surge protectors online or from a trusted electrical service company. Single-outlet surge protectors (surge strip) will prevent electrical currents from spiking up in single outlets, while whole house surge protectors will protect all the outlets in your home. In addition, whole house surge protectors will protect HVAC systems, critical home appliances, as well as anything plugged in to electrical outlets, saving you money from having to buy power surge strips.
Only purchase whole house surge protectors from companies that you trust. They will offer you with warranties and a promise to replace your electronics if any damage occurs to them while their surge protector is connected. Protect your house with a whole house surge protector now!

During cold months, the furnace takes center stage, becoming the most important part of your home. It helps you stay warm, as you sip hot cocoa and snack on S'mores. When your furnace breaks down or stops functioning at its optimal level, you are given two choices, replace or repair it.
Deciding on the fate of your furnace depends on several factors, and not just one. In order to decide the best option for you, you will need the assistance of a technician. The technician will look around the house to determine which option is best for you. For now, take a look at both scenarios, and their deciding factors to understand when is the best time to replace or repair your furnace.
Repair your furnace if you spot the following problems:
Before you decide on what is the best option for you, you should contact a technician to see what he or she thinks about it. Technicians have the knowledge to inform you if your furnace is out of shape, and you need to replace it or that it is still very much alive and kicking, but only needs repairs. In fact, the only thing that you might need to replace is your thermostat.
Sometimes, you will need to replace the entire furnace to restore optimal functioning, and here is how to tell:
In order to avoid repairs and replacements, you should contact a HVAC company to perform maintenance on your furnace. Regular furnace maintenance will save you money in the long run. If you are looking for qualified professional to visit your house to inspect your furnace, you need to contact Bonfe today!
With summer around the corner, most people are probably busy calling their local technicians to perform a routine air conditioner service. You should join them by contacting the technicians in your area to come over to your house and have a look at your air conditioner.
Just hope that no other problems arise when the technician comes over, but if they do, it largely depends on the age of your air conditioner and the last time you had a technician performed a routine air conditioner service. Even then, it is never too late to start taking care of your air conditioner to benefit you later on. In fact, we have some of the benefits outlined for you here:
By performing routine air conditioner service regularly, you will reduce the probability of repairs arising. When it comes time to turn on the air conditioner, you will not have to worry about any unexpected repairs. It will save you money and energy down the line, and for this reason, it should be the first thing on your to-do list this summer.
If you do not give routine air conditioner service top priority, you will be looking at a bleak and expensive summer of having your air conditioner break down on the hottest day of the season.
To avoid major repairs and break downs, you need to examine the air conditioner for wears on the belts, pump, and other areas that function to keep the system running smoothly. The only way to prolong the life of your system is not to skip on routine air conditioner maintenance.
Again, having your air conditioner break down at random is an annoyance, especially for those people that might be entertaining guests at home. You do not want to take such chances with your system. Therefore, you need conduct regular cooling system maintenance.
When you annually call the technician to perform maintenance on your air conditioner, he or she will be able to locate issues before they become worse earlier. In return, this will save you a lot of money on repairs, as smaller pairs do not cost as much as larger ones.
A poorly performing air conditioner will take use more power to perform, pushing itself to cool the room. Your next utility bill will show you the cost of its efforts at cooling your home despite having worn and malfunctioning parts.
Lastly, you will breathe fresh air emitting from the air conditioner instead of air that contains allergens. If a family member or you have asthma, breathing problems, or allergies, it is necessary for you to schedule routine air conditioner maintenance.
If you need to get your air conditioner ready for the summer, you need to contact Bonfe. They will provide you with a routine air conditioner service, overseen by an expert technician.
