Especially if your house has been up for years, eventually, there would be something to repair — it’s wear and tear. And so, it’s better to understand how things work around your ‘castle’ before they crack your walls and really puncture your pockets. Let’s see..
For those that doesn’t have airconditioners, better to regularly clean your coolers and fans. That would not only ‘blow’ you more air but ‘reduce’ the energy needed to make it work. Less energy, less costs.
Now, leaking faucets and running toilets is a gimme. Leaks only lead to more water needed for whatever your use and that’s more money going to the water supplier than water going to you!
Obviously, it’d be more cost efficient to patch your ‘tub walls’ than to put up a new ‘fixture’ — just like patching your roof instead of buying a new GI sheet. Thus, always check them before the rainy season.
Hmm… While using a candle to run through cracks and leaks is good, just be careful that nothing would burn while inspecting.
As for electrical outlets, try not to procrastinate on them — a short circuit could cause you problems especially during the summer..
