Saving Energy in the Fall and Winter

Fall is here! Well, technically, fall has been here since September 21st, although most of September and the first week of October felt more like late summer. Then we woke up on this morning – it’s mid-November as we write this – and we could feel it. There was a crispness in the air, the humidity had vanished, and autumn had truly arrived.

Don’t Wait for Winter to Get Your Heating System Inspected

For nearly every misfortune we encounter, there is also what we’ll call the “if only…” moment. You lock yourself out of the house, and you say to yourself “If only I’d checked my pockets before I walked out the door.” You get stuck behind a slow driver on the way to work and think “Wow, I wish I’d left earlier.” Or your furnace breaks down on a day when the temperature won’t top 20 degrees, and you realize, “I guess I should have had a heating repair company inspect my furnace when I had the chance.” This is a point that we’ve made again and again, because… Read More

HVAC Repair Horror Stories for Halloween

It’s almost Halloween, and that has us thinking about horror movies, and all the different types of horror movies there are to choose from. There are zombie films, like Night of the Living Dead, stories about sinister Satanic forces like Rosemary’s Baby or The Omen, or monster movies like Alien or The Thing. Then there’s the haunted house. We’d argue that these movies are scary because they’re so relatable. We know deep down that zombies or vampires aren’t real, but we’ve also been home alone at night, wondering What Could Have Made That Noise? We’re not saying ghosts… Read More

Running Your Air Conditioner in the Fall

The calendar might say that we’re in the middle of autumn, but fall can be a tricky season. Summer temperatures can often linger well into October, leaving us sweating when we’re ready for sweater weather, and relying on our air conditioning systems more than we’d expected. In fact, that’s what we can expect this year, according to AccuWeather, with warm temperatures hanging around throughout the northeast for several weeks. “While autumn may take longer than usual to arrive, it will be a picturesque season if forecasters are correct,” Accuweather says on its website. “Dry… Read More

Don’t Make These Mistakes When Buying a Furnace

  Have you ever bought something only to find yourself wishing you had a time machine so you could go back and stop yourself? It’s a phenomenon known as “buyer’s remorse,” often associated with big purchases like cars or homes…or home heating systems. It’s something we see far too often in the heating and cooling repair business: People who’ve made costly mistakes when buying their furnaces, often due to assumptions they made about their purchase.

All Air Conditioners Need Maintenance, No Matter How Old or New

You’ve secured your financing, filled out the paperwork and the salesman has handed you the keys. And just like that, you’re the proud owner of a new car. But what if that was the last time you checked in with the dealership? What if you waited until you’d put tens of thousands of miles on the car before, say, getting an oil change or rotating the tires? We know that sounds silly, but it’s an attitude that we see far too often when it comes to heating and air conditioning service: Many people seem to think HVAC maintenance isn’t important for newer systems.
