Winter can take us by surprise. One day we’re heading out to work in a light jacket, the next we’re digging snow shovels out of the garage.

But when it comes to your HVAC system, it’s easy to get prepared for winter.

It’s also essential. It’s one thing to have to try to buy rock salt after a storm hits, and quite another to call out a heating repair company in the middle of a blizzard.

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 we’ve seen far too many homeowners suffer through a brutally cold stretch of winter thanks to an issue that we might have caught during routine furnace service.

HVAC Repair Horror Stories for Halloween

10/25/18 10:30 AM Chris Long

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 aren’t real, but most of the time, an unexplained noise is usually a sign that you need an HVAC repair service, not an exorcist. Here are a few of the ways that your heating and cooling system might be “haunting” your house.

Running Your Air Conditioner in the Fall

10/18/18 10:30 AM Chris Long

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 weather in the Northeast paired will cool nights will pave the way for vibrant leaves to emerge across the region.”
