How You Can Prevent Emergency Heater Repairs

Monday, November 18th, 2019

man-hugging-radiatorThe number one way to prevent any type of problem with your heater, but particularly an emergency situation, is with maintenance. Professional maintenance allows our technicians to thoroughly inspect your entire heater, inside and out. During this inspection, we’ll clean the system to help it perform more efficiently, and make any adjustments necessary.

Another thing we do during maintenance is we keep an eye out for repair needs, as small as they may be. This allows you to get heating repairs on your schedule sooner than later, so you don’t have to worry about your heater suddenly breaking down in the middle of winter.

Of course, even with maintenance, there’s always a chance you could run into heating repair needs between tune-ups. They’re a lot less likely, but it’s still important to know the signs in order to give us a call. Calling in the pros when needed and staying on top of maintenance are the best ways to prevent heating emergencies. So, what are these signs?

Is an Air Purifier Worth it?

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

window-sill-of-a-houseThe short answer to this is “yes,” but we promise to elaborate more below.

When you think about the quality of the air you breathe, chances are you’re thinking about the air outside, and contaminants that can be in it such as allergens, mold, and more. But the fact of the matter is, without the right indoor air quality solutions, the quality of your indoor air can actually be worse than that of outdoors.

And since the average American spends 90% of their time indoors, that’s a problem. It’s especially problematic if anyone in your household suffers from allergies, asthma, or any other type of respiratory condition. The reason most homes suffer from this poor indoor air quality is because they’re built with efficiency in mind—airtight. This is great news for your HVAC systems, but not so much for your overall health.
