Early Fall?

As we continue on with 2014 in Omaha, we have seen many weather extremes from a cold dry start to the year to a wet and unseasonably cool spring and summer. As the last official days of summer wind down in the coming weeks if you step outside you are fully aware the seasons are changing. Furnace season is upon us. Some furnaces will start right up and others will just refuse to kick on.  For the unfortunate circumstances of a furnace not firing up when the thermostat is adjusted for the first time, it’s not the end of the world. Just a simple call for some routine maintenance is usually in order.

When the heating season comes earlier than normal like it seems to be this year, most people haven’t prepared ahead by having their furnace serviced. The good news here . . . it’s not too late. There will be plenty of warm days ahead before the drudgery of winter sets in.  Plan ahead now to get your furnace inspected and serviced before you really need it.

The advantages of planning ahead range from saving money to avoiding larger disasters like frozen pipes in the heart of a winter cold spell. There are a number of safety concerns too that if gone unchecked can cause issues such as carbon monoxide poisoning or other health issues. While in most circumstances immediate danger is not there, it’s better to take care of issues as they arise instead of waiting for what might happen down the road.

Enjoy the fall weather, football, and everything else that a change of season brings!

Maintenance Agreement

It’s that time of year again! The grass is getting greener, flowers are blooming, and the warm wind is starting to blow (it is Nebraska though so the wind blowing is nothing new . . . it’s just suddenly warmer). Suddenly the temperature is above 80 and after working in the yard all day doing your spring cleaning all you want to do is kick on the air conditioning and cool down a little. You adjust the thermostat and switch to cool and . . . nothing. It was running just fine last fall when the temperature hit 80 degrees and you needed to cool down. What could possibly be wrong with something you haven’t used for the last six months?!

Not every air conditioner that won’t turn on or blow cold air will have the same issue.  That’s why it’s important to add a money saving maintenance check to your spring cleaning to do list!  The payoff is peace of mind over the hot summer months and lower cooling bills because your air conditioner is running optimally. Ideally, an annual maintenance agreement is the way to keep your entire heating and cooling system in top running condition.  In the long run, annual air conditioner cleanings will also prolong the life of your equipment!  Contact us today to get YOUR spring cool check scheduled and rest assured that you will be taken care of for the summer months to come!
