HVAC equipment is a worthy investment and can transform your home.
One of the ways I ensure that my systems are in good condition and maintain the state is by scheduling regular furnace/heater tune-ups right from when the furnace/heater installation is done.
It is not any different for this winter. According to the weatherman, the first few weeks will be brutal. There is a particular local HVAC business that I prefer, but when I called, the calls went unanswered. I checked online for them, only to find out that the business was bought off by a heating contractor that has a more prominent company. The bigger company has a broader range of services and whole home heating devices. I scheduled the furnace/heater repair with their HVAC tech for the last week of spring. Last winter, I added a portable space heater to my heating equipment. This happened because my hydronic heating system malfunctioned, and I could not find an available HVAC repairman fast enough to help with indoor comfort. The heater has built-in temperature control in the form of knobs or buttons. I learned an essential lesson that winter, and I was going to make sure to run maintenance on the quality HVAC equipment before winter started. The HVAC providers were prompt to their appointment, and ensuring I had quality heating took a little over two hours. When they left, I could feel the indoor comfort had significantly improved. We are almost done with winter, and my systems have not disappointed me.
