4 Essential Systems in your Home That Should Be Monitored
The average family home is a complex structure that contains a few systems that deliver power, water and provide essential waste removal and these networks need to be monitored from time to time.
Here are 4 examples of domestic systems that operate within your property.
- Electrical system – Look at any electrical installation in Birmingham and you will see a network of cables, wires, junction boxes and fuses that regulate the supply of electricity to all parts of the building.
- Mains water supply – Of course, your home is connected to the mains water supply and the complex web of pipes that run through the house are liable to corrosion. Check under sinks and around hot water tanks, looking for signs of rust or corrosion.
- Waste management – All waste, solid and liquid runs through your drainage system and blockages are not uncommon; in the event your drains are backed up, call in a local drain cleaner, who would find the blockage, clear it and run a power rinse to improve the flow. You could have your drains inspected using CCTV, the technician uses a go-anywhere buggy with a small camera attached, allowing him to inspect the inner surfaces.
- Telecommunications – Most people have Broadband Internet and with a couple of wireless routers around the house, you have great connectivity for the whole family. Phone lines need to be looked at now and again; growing trees could compromise a cable.
Ask any seasoned homeowner and they will confirm that regular inspections ensure minor issues are dealt with before they become serious.
