Living in this region really requires some serious, efficient and reliable HVAC. This is due to the fact that we get the worst of winter and summer. Our winter is full of snow and ice. It starts early and runs all the way through March and even sometimes into April. Then it’s like a week of spring before the heat and humidity hit us. The summer around here is no joke. You’d think after having to endure the sort of winter that we do, the summer would be nothing but pleasant. That just isn’t the case at all. The heat really sets in around late may and goes through til September at least. And again, there is the briefest of fall weather before winter is on top of us again. So those brief respites from the extremes of our climate make for a great time to get the HVAC inspected and serviced. We always get HVAC maintenance done in the spring and again in the fall. This way we know that the HVAC will be getting it done through the tough seasons. Additionally, getting the HVAC maintenance done allows the heating & cooling systems to work at their most efficient. That is a very big deal. Our heating & cooling costs are a fairly substantial part of our household budget. We do everything that we can do to lessen the load on the HVAC during the worst of the winter and summer. That helps to reign in the utility costs. However, a tuned up furnace and cooling unit will go a long way toward making sure the HVAC is working at its most efficient.
