Once the calendar reaches October, fall is officially here. Temperatures might not drop right away (hey, Mother Nature can’t read the calendar) but soon enough we’ll be dealing with chillier weather, especially at night.

We appreciate your confidence that your heater is going to work just fine this fall and winter, but we’d encourage you to consider scheduling your next tune-up.

What many people don’t realize, however, is that upgrading to a tankless water heater–while there are a great deal of benefits to doing so–doesn’t mean you get to skip out on caring for it. That’s right, your tankless water needs a maintenance tune-up. Read on to learn why!

Signs You Need Late-Season AC Repairs

September 28th, 2020

It may officially be fall, and it may almost be time to shut down our air conditioners for the season, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore cooling system problems if you have them. In fact, doing so could leave you with a completely broken down system next spring when you need it the most.

Basically, the longer you wait to service your cooling system, the more you increase your chances of experiencing HVAC problems. This is especially true if your air conditioner shares ductwork with your furnace, or if you have a heat pump that you’ll be using for heating in addition to cooling.

So what can you do? Watch for signs of AC trouble and ensure you call our team if you notice any of the following issues!

The thing is, homes without the right air quality systems and services in place have worse air quality than the outdoors. This is because contaminants like allergens and other potentially harmful particles get trapped inside the home with no escape.

Sure, your HVAC systems have an air filter, but this air filter is designed to protect the HVAC system from this debris, not your indoor air or your family. For true indoor air quality protection and improvement, you’ll want to look into products like air cleaners and purifiers. Read on to learn more!

How old is your air conditioner? How efficiently has it worked so far this summer? These are just a couple of the questions you should ask yourself before summer ends.

And even if your aging AC system makes it to the end of summer, can you be confident it’ll be ready to work effectively and efficiently next summer?
