Many homeowners have central HVAC systems, which means they have two communicating units (an indoor and and outdoor) as well as ductwork that runs through the house. If you’re one of these homeowners, you probably don’t think much about your ductwork, but it’s essential for carrying heat or air conditioning to the various vents in your home.
At Oliver, we always support the idea of saving water and saving energy. Here, our plumbing experts have compiled 16 different facts about water efficiency from resources like National Geographic and the Environmental Protection Agency:

Are you considering selling your home? Don’t let little problems get in your way. There are several things you can do to make sure that your home is appealing to visitors and potential buyers. Here are some suggestions from our HVAC and plumbing service experts:
Updating your entryway
One of the first things a visitor will notice about your home is your entryway. Liven it up by giving your front door a fresh coat of paint (or even replacing it, if it’s outdated) and hanging or planting some colorful flowers. You can also add a welcome mat and a door wreath for an added warm welcome.
Replacing your HVAC system
If your HVAC system is old and inefficient, it won’t be much of a selling point to a potential buyer. Talk to the experts at Oliver about replacing your system; we carry an array of gas, electric, and oil furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps, and more. We’ll help you figure out which system is the best fit for your needs and your budget.
Whether it’s your shower head, kitchen sink, bathroom faucet, or outdoor spigot, no one likes a leaky fixture. You’ll give the impression that your home is old and not taken care of, which can lower your chances of selling. If you’re unsure how to fix the leak yourself, give us a call. Even slow leaks can lead to several gallons of water lost every week, so limit your water waste and make your home buyer-ready.
Adding a deck
When it comes to home improvement projects that have a successful payback, a deck is definitely one of them. A deck increases your living space and allows for outdoor entertainment. Just by building a 16×20 ft. pressure-treated wood deck with a simple layout, you can look forward to an up to 90% payback when you go to sell your home. Our home remodeling team can help you design and build your very own deck – just call us and set up an appointment!
If you don’t have the money to replace or refinish your cabinets, a simple hardware update can spruce them up and give them a whole new look. The same goes for other hardware like doorknobs and drawer pulls. Choose pieces that give your home a modern, yet elegant look.
Revising your landscaping
Before visitors notice your entryway, they’ll notice your landscaping – which means they’ll notice if you haven’t updated it in years. Take the time to trim up your trees and shrubs, replace dead plants, and add some new pieces to complement the size and shape of your home. You can even add some in-season flowers for a colorful pop.
Owning a home means there are some projects you’ll probably take on by yourself, such as landscaping, painting, and decorating. When it comes to plumbing, however, it may be hard to tell whether your problem is something you can fix or something you should call the pros for. We’re here to help:
