Be Nice to New Jersey Week & Keep Your Home Safe, Too

July 01, 2024

Those of us who live in New Jersey are proud of our state. But we take our fair share of ribbing, too. We’re sure you’ve heard plenty of New Jersey jokes over the years! And while we take it all in great stride, we do appreciate having an entire week dedicated to being nice to us. That’s right, July 7 to July 13 is Be Nice to Jersey Week and we’re here to celebrate.

Would you like to be nicer to your friends in New Jersey? Our HVAC service pros have put together a list of ways you can be nice(r) this month—nice to the Garden State and nicer to your own home, too. 

5 Things You Can Do This Summer to Keep Your Home NICE

Summer is all about being good to yourself, basking in the sunshine, and enjoying the time spent with your family in a cool home. Here are some tips for keeping your home NICE and cool. 

Before you leave for a pool day…

There’s nothing more refreshing than a cool dip in the pool on a sizzling summer day. But have you planned for the time spent away? This is where smart thermostats come in super handy. With a smart thermostat device, you can set your thermostat to adjust the temperature when you are away from home, so you aren’t wasting precious energy. Oops…you’re at the pool and forgot to change the setting? No problem! Smart thermostats can be controlled by an app on your phone. And if you don’t yet have one of these technological beauties, call A.J. Perri for smart home installation today!

Before you throw that picnic…

Planning a graduation party or a backyard barbecue? Then you’ll need to prepare for your guests. And one big area that shouldn’t be ignored is your plumbing. Lots of guests, means plenty of trips to the powder room. Before you throw that soiree, be sure you’ve scheduled a plumbing inspection or drain service cleaning from your local HVAC and plumbing company (us). The last thing you want during a party is a plumbing disaster that requires an emergency plumber call. 

Before you leave for that vacation…

Many homeowners are unaware that their water heaters have a vacation mode. Before leaving for your getaway, reset your water heater to vacation mode to help save a few bucks. You might also benefit from turning off the water flow that goes into your house, especially if you’ll be gone for a long spell. Lastly, don’t forget to check that your sump pump is in good working condition, too. 

Before you do laundry…

Did you know that your washing machine uses the same amount of energy regardless of what size load it's washing? So, fill up the washer when doing your loads. In addition, try using cold water to help save on energy use. 

Before ignoring that puddle in the shower…

Have you been ignoring pooling water in your shower drain? Pooling water in the shower could indicate that your drains are clogged. And if these clogs aren’t treated properly, they could lead to bigger issues down the road. If you can’t unclog the drain yourself, feel free to call our experts for drain service
