It Isn’t Too Late for Heating Maintenance

Monday, November 13th, 2017

heating-in-homeYour home needs heating in Summit, NJ during the winter—there’s no way around that! And unless you are just moving into a new home, you already have a heating system to take care of the comfort of you and your family during this coming winter.

The Importance of Late Season AC Repairs

We hope this means you’ve also put “heating maintenance” on your to-do list and will arrange for it soon. It’s never too early in the fall to have this important job done!

What Might Go Wrong Because of a Clogged Furnace Filter

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Regular maintenance for a furnace is a job entirely for HVAC professionals… almost. It takes training and special equipment to handle tasks such as tightening connections, inspecting heat exchangers, cleaning burners, etc. The one task that you can handle yourself is one that your technician will do during the fall maintenance visit, but which you will need to do on your own for the rest of the winter: regularly changing the furnace filter.

Is This the Fall to Replace Your Old Furnace?

Monday, October 24th, 2016

Whether you use a gas or electric furnace to provide heat to your house for winter, at some point it will need to be replaced with a new heater. The best time to have this heating replacement done is during the fall, so you’ll be ready to handle the first day of cold with a new system that’s ready to go.

But how can you tell if this particular fall is the right one to put the old furnace out to pasture (or the landfill)? It’s a good question, one that people often don’t answer until the furnace suffers a complete breakdown. If you watch for warning signs, you can catch a furnace that’s starting to fail and have a new one installed in time.
