Happy Independence Day! We are excited to celebrate the 4th of July with you during what has already been a very hot summer. You may be planning to spend the day with friends and family, some which you probably haven’t seen in a while, continue to master the art of the American BBQ, and of course shoot some fireworks into the night sky before retiring into your home for a fun movie to watch with the family.
We here at Metro-Flow continue to work tirelessly to provide the best plumbing services we can to the Dallas area and are happy to assist you and yours in any way we can with plumbing routine checks and emergencies. We pride ourselves in our thorough and speedy service in case of a plumbing mishap.
During summer, we tend to rely on our appliances to keep us comfortable through the hot days. The wear and tear can cause some of them to malfunction right when you need them the most. One, if not, the most important one during this hot climate time is our air conditioning (A/C) unit. Make sure your A/C system is running smoothly and cost efficiently when you need it most.
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends setting your A/C to 78 degrees during the summer to keep cool and avoid an unusually high electric bill. Remember that setting the thermostat to cooler temperatures will not cool your home faster, you just have to be a little patient with it. Certain other appliances that may act up, such as your dishwasher or refrigerator, have water lines that may break or need replacement. If so, don’t hesitate to call us at 214-328-7371 and we’ll be happy to get one of our certified and insured plumbing technicians out there to fix your plumbing problem.
Protect the grill masters
Please remember to stay hydrated while you throw some burgers on the grill. The summer heat can sneak up on you and water is recommended as it is both healthy and plentiful (though we totally understand cracking a cold one due to the circumstances).
As the sun goes down and you got the family gathered around at a safe distance from the firework display, remember to use caution when handling fireworks. If fireworks are the projectile kind, face them away from the crowds of people and always make sure they’re standing upright to take off properly. Mishandling of fireworks can cause serious burns and unintentional fires.
Get the popcorn ready
If you want to keep the festivities going why not find a movie to watch to help you celebrate the holidays. Below are some of our favorites (and all 3 are family friendly!)
Captain America: The First Avenger (PG-13), 2011
What better way to celebrate the 4th of July than with the Star-Spangled hero himself, Captain America. This first entry in the Captain America trilogy explores Cap’s origins fighting in World War 2. This entry in Marvel’s ever expanding cinematic universe leaves you wanting more as we follow Steve Rogers from his neighborhood in Brooklyn to fighting the good fight overseas when his country needed him most.
Independence Day (PG-13), 1996
This movie is literally called Independence Day and an instant classic and staple of 90s action movies. Will Smith is at his best fighting alien invaders. We also really enjoy Bill Pullman’s performance and speech as President Thomas J. Whitmore: “We will not go quietly into the night…Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”. Chills every time.
The Sandlot (PG), 1993
Is there anything more American than our favorite pastime? Scottie Smalls moves into a new town and befriends some local boys who share a passion for baseball. Between adventures during a hot summer month, the boys play the sport in the neighborhood sandlot. The personalities within the group is why we think this movie is so memorable and you’ll find yourself quoting this movie years after you’ve watched it! “You’re Killing Me, Smalls!!!”
