Well, this time last week we were preparing for the first really cold spell of the year. And it was chilly on Friday and into Saturday mid day. Now it feels like we're back into Spring time. Got to love this weather in Alabama. And we do. Air conditioning to heating, back to air conditioning, this time of year definitely puts your HVAC system through the ringers. That being said, it's even more important to have your system checked out and serviced on a regular basis. We recommend 4 times a year, but you should at least have 2 check ups per year, once during the cooling season, again during the heating system. Taking the time to have your system maintained can help in so many ways. It will keep your system operating more efficiently, you'll have the peace of mind knowing that all safety systems are operating properly, and any other issues you may have within the HVAC system of your home can be addressed and corrected, which will make you more comfortable and save you money at the same time. It never seems to fail, we find systems that are operating correctly, but have several duct related issues. Having your duct issues resolved will make your home more comfortable, and you will no longer be spending money heating and cooling attics or crawl spaces around your home. Try looking at it like this, if you had a water line leaking in your attic, you'd want to have it repaired immediately to prevent damage to your home and to have an astronomical water bill. Well, your duct system is just as important, but we tend not to look at it the same way. Duct leakage can induce dust and dirt into your system and greatly reduce the efficiency of your system. There is a direct impact on your power bill. So call today and get on the schedule to have your HVAC system checked out. You'll be glad you did.
Remember that tomorrow is Halloween and there will be kids out Trick or Treating. Be careful when driving through neighborhoods, and if you choose to stay home and hand out candy or treats, make sure to leave your porch lights on, and be prepared for all the little "Goblins" that may come your way. Have a great day.
