To avoid bigger issues, I usually schedule repairs whenever I notice unusual symptoms on equipment
Winter is right around the corner, and we all need to keep warm and comfortable, especially in our houses. It is customary in my house to prepare for winter. Despite most people’s views on winter, my family and I love winter, mainly because it comes with holidays that bring the families together. One of the things we do with our quality HVAC equipment is schedule furnace/heater tune-up every spring and fall. We have an HVAC repairman that helps us schedule the furnace/heater repairs to keep the hydronic heating system in good condition. We have known the HVAC tech because he grew up with us. He was our neighbor for the longest time. He owns the local HVAC business and has done well for himself. Some repairs to look out for include changing the air filters to improve the air quality. We also check the temperature control device to ensure it works optimally. Since we leave with grandpa, who needs more warmth than the rest of us, the HVAC provider advised I get a portable space heater. The device would help provide personalized quality heating to grandpa. Since the heating contractor did the furnace/heater installation five years ago, I have not had a severe issue with the device. It does a perfect job of providing whole home heating. To avoid bigger issues, I usually schedule repairs whenever I notice unusual symptoms on equipment. As long as I plan the annual maintenance, the device will work optimally through winter. I have taken up the responsibility of reminding my siblings to service their systems at least every fall and spring.
