Air Conditioning is easy, right? It’s hot, you turn your system on, and now it’s cool. Isn’t that it? Well, Tragar Home Services certainly hopes it’s that simple most of the time, but we also know that there’s a lot more that goes into running a cooling system than you think. You need to maintain your system all spring and summer long and all year long. You’ll also want to take steps to ensure your cooling system is running at peak efficiency. Homeowners make mistakes related to their cooling systems all the time. At Tragar, we can help keep your air conditioning running in good order and we’ve seen more than our share of mistakes made. So we want to tell you about some common cooling mistakes and how to avoid them.
Mother Nature has already flipped the “on” switch, are you ready to do it? Spring is here. Buds are growing on trees and bushes. Birds are singing, and the weather is getting warmer. Before too long, it’s going to get uncomfortably warm. Will your cooling system be ready? Many people think that simply means switching your air conditioner on. However, Tragar Home Services wants you to know that if you want your cooling system to run properly this year and to continue to run for years to come, there are steps you should take every year before cooling your home.
You probably won’t be thinking much about the history of plumbing when you need a plumber. Very often plumbers get calls in emergency situations. At Tragar Home Services, we know our customers want to understand how their problem is going to be fixed now, rather than think about how it might have been fixed thousands of years ago. That’s one of the reasons why Tragar is available for plumbing services 24/7/365. But when you’re not worrying about an emergency, it is fascinating to look at how far back the roots of plumbing go and how this miracle, which we take for granted every day, has progressed to modern times.

When you think about heating you usually think about traditional means of delivery involving boilers and furnaces, vents and baseboards. That is certainly the way heat is traditionally delivered through most American homes, but Tragar Home Services wants you to know about another heating service we deliver that’s based on the idea that heat can be transferred. It’s called radiant heat and we know many of our customers don’t know much about it. Tragar makes it our business to be home heating and cooling experts, so we know our way around all kinds of systems, including radiant heat.
A heating emergency is more than just an inconvenience. It can be dangerous to you and your family. Losing your heating is something that usually doesn’t happen often and you should take every precaution to prevent it. Tragar Home Services can help make sure your boiler remains in good working order and we’ll also make certain your oil is delivered on time. We can always be there in the event of an emergency, but it’s important to understand that loss of heat and other winter emergencies can and do happen. Tragar will work hard to keep those emergencies as brief as possible, but we also want you to be prepared when they happen.
When you own a home, you know that at some point you’re going to have to deal with a problem. It’s why you see so many posts on social media asking everyone to recommend a handyman, electrician, plumber, or contractor. There are many mishaps that can happen in your home, but one of the worst things that can happen to you is having your pipes freeze and burst. You’ll be dealing with flooding, water damage, insurance companies, and having to scramble to find a shower. If there’s anything you want to scramble to prevent, this is it. Fortunately, this is a problem that’s usually preventable by winterizing your pipes. And if your pipes do burst, Tragar Home Services can help.

A lot of people are confused as to what to do when it comes to setting the thermostat. How warm is too warm? And how do you stay energy efficient?
