1. Clean Your Dryer Vent

This is an important New Year resolution for your home because the dryer vent is often overlooked. A dirty dryer vent not only costs you money, due to being inefficient and causing you to run your dryer for longer periods of time, but a dirty dryer vent is also a major fire hazard. There are nearly 16,000 house fires each year caused by lint trapped in dryer vents. So don’t forget to have those dirty dryer vents cleaned periodically.

2. Check Your Sump Pump

A properly functioning sump pump is absolutely essential to preventing a flooded basement.  You want to check your sump pump regularly to ensure that everything is flowing smoothly.

3. Protect Your Home with Motion Detector Lights

Having an Electrician install motion detector lights is an effective way to protect your home from potential theft. Motion detector lights are also extremely helpful when you need a little extra light at night.

4. Remember Surge Protectors are Your Friend

This New Year invest, in some powerful surge protectors. Surge protectors protect your electronics and appliances from power surges. Which means by simply plugging your electronics into surge protectors, you can save thousands of dollars by not needing to replace your devices every time a surge hits.

5. Change Your Filter Monthly

Regularly changing your filter is the best way to prolong the life of your furnace and air conditioning units. Plus, your heating and cooling equipment will run more efficiently, saving you money on your monthly power bill.

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
