A sink disposal is great if you generate a lot of kitchen scraps.

A water heater is one of the big workhorses of your home, but it's also one of the easiest to ignore. When it's well-maintained and running properly, it is almost silent. It's also typically stationed in a basement or utility room, so you don't see it every day. Despite all of this, it does require some maintenance.
After your heating and cooling unit heats or cools air, it blows that air through ductwork into your home where it exits through vents. Ducts are flexible, thin metal tubes, which can rip or break due to age, pests, or the natural contraction and expansion they undergo as hot and cold air travels through them. When there is a hole, rip or tear in the ductwork, heated or cooled air can escape, rather than properly traveling through to your vents. This is why it is so important to have them repaired if needed. Here are two of the most common signs that your ductwork may have a rip or tear and need to be repaired or replaced.

If your unit is nearing the end of its lifespan, it will give you signs that it may need to be replaced. Here are a few of the most common signs that it may be time to replace your hot water heater.
