The Right HVAC Unit for Your Home

A couple of months ago, the HVAC unit in my home started malfunctioning. The temperature inside my home soared to over eighty degrees Fahrenheit, even though my air conditioning system ran nonstop. After inspecting my air conditioning unit, my knowledgeable HVAC contractor recommended I purchase a new system. He discussed the pros and cons of installing different sizes of HVAC units with me. After considering my HVAC contractor’s advice, I decided to purchase a three and a half ton HVAC unit. Shortly after my HVAC contractor installed my new air conditioning unit, my house started feeling more comfortable. On this blog, I hope you will discover how an HVAC contractor can help you select the right air conditioning unit for your home. Enjoy!

The Benefits Of Scheduling Heating Maintenance During An Indian Summer

by Jamie Shaw

An "Indian summer" is a season where it is unusually warm in fall. For whatever reason, it feels more like mid-summer than early- to mid-autumn. Because of all this heat, you may be inclined to put off heating maintenance-- do not do that. There are benefits to scheduling heating maintenance during an Indian summer.

Everyone Else Is Putting It Off

Like you, there are hundreds of other people thinking that they can put off their heating maintenance tasks. When they do, they leave behind several openings that the HVAC technicians can fill. You could get your appointment in early and with few time constraints. Then you are ready for the colder weather when everyone else is not.

Weather Can Change Quickly

Despite the fact that you are experiencing an Indian summer, the weather can still change rapidly. Midwesterners have a saying; "If you do not like the weather, just wait a few minutes." The same holds true for unseasonably warm weather. It can go cold in just a few days or even overnight. If you wait to do annual maintenance, you may find yourself quite chilly some night very soon. Going ahead with the maintenance as planned means that you do not have to concern yourself with rapid temperature and weather changes.

When It Is Done, It Is Done for Another Year

It is always better not to procrastinate. Do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today. When you get an annual task done, it is done for another year. Sure, it is hot now when it should not be, and yes, you can use the money to pay for other things because you do not need the heat, but the task at hand could be done. Few other home maintenance tasks are done annually, and you do not have to budget for them every month. Just do the maintenance for your heating system and be done with it.

Call to Confirm

Your scheduled annual maintenance for your heating system should be confirmed with your HVAC specialist. Call to confirm that you still have the date and time you selected the previous year. Better yet, take advantage of the warm weather and ask the technician to move the date and time up so that your maintenance is completed ahead of everyone else's. There should be lots of open appointments since many people are putting off this task during the hot, summer-like weather of an Indian summer.
