New Year, New Unit? How to Tell If It’s Time to Invest in a New AC Unit

At the start of a new year, it can be helpful to step back and take stock of the state of your home. What needs your attention the most? What can wait until later in the year? Taking a proactive approach to maintenance helps minimize unpleasant surprises while maximizing your comfort and peace of mind. Though it might still be cold outside, now is an excellent time to consider whether your AC unit might require replacement. It’s better to consider your options now than to confront the frustration of your AC failing in the middle of summer. Read More

On A Scale of 1-10, How Important Is Getting Your Heater Inspected?

Heater InspectedAnswer: 7. A lot of people rely on their heaters to help them make it through the cold, unforgiving winter months. However, very few understand the importance of having their heater inspected before winter arrives. An inspection’s sole purpose is to ensure that your heating system functions without poor performance and total breakdowns. Homeowners who invest in service before they start using their heaters are usually able to avoid these problems and enjoy efficient heating until spring arrives.

Advantages of Having Your Heater Inspected

Service is about more than just preventing a catastrophe. Yes, a service technician can spot red flags that prevent a potential breakdown before they ever have a chance to manifest. However, that’s not the only value that a pre-winter heater inspection offers. Having your heater checked can help avoid costly utility bills during the months when you’ll be likely to use it most.

Lower utility costs provide a compelling reason to have your heater checked by a professional before winter arrives, but there’s more. An inspection of your heater ensures essential components endure a long, productive lifespan.

Think of your heater as if it was a car. You don’t just buy a vehicle and then drive it until it breaks down; you take care of it with regular maintenance and service so you can continue to operate it from one year to the next.

There is also safety to consider. A heater is an intricate machine with a variety of sensitive parts. Some of these pieces can become hazardous if neglected for too long. It is essential to have your electrical system checked before periods of extended use to prevent the likelihood of fires or power outages. Your heat exchanger should also be examined to make sure your system is not leaking carbon monoxide. Having an inspection early in the fall will provide peace of mind throughout the winter.

What a Professional Offers

When you call a professional for help, they will provide several essential services. You can expect a skilled and reliable professional to review mechanical and electrical components and inspect anything that looks abnormal. Ultimately, ensuring your heater operates safely and cost-effectively. In many cases, the savings from preventative service offset potential costs.

No AC? No Problem!

Either way, the natural reaction is to call for AC repair right away. Unfortunately, many air conditioning companies don’t place residential repairs particularly high on their priorities list, which means you could end up waiting a few hours or even a few days to get a fix.
