Most people don’t even think about it, but the fact is that as we go through the seasons, the way our home is used changes in big and small ways. Other parts of the country are more familiar with this due to the need to winterize, but this concept is still true here in California.
For example, think about the general increase in activity around your home during the summer. If you have kids, you know that they likely have been spending quite a bit more time at home while they’re away from school. Greater activity means greater use of systems like heating and cooling, and your plumbing system.
It’s important to check things like your plumbing system from time to time throughout the year to make sure things are running smoothly. Water heaters and sprinkler systems are especially important to inspect. Leaks can cause water damage, which can be very costly to repair.
