Don’t Forget About Your Heater’s Filter!

November 18th, 2019

filterWhen you live in Vermont, you have to deal with the winter season.  It’s coming around each and every year,  and when it comes around, it can really stick around. But you don’t need us to tell you that our winters can be pretty intense. What you might need reminding of, though, is one of the most effective ways in which you can set your forced air heater up for success. That is by changing the air filter as needed. What does “as needed” mean in this case?

Well, typically, it means every 1-3 months.  That’s not a hard and fast rule, as some homes will require changes more frequently. However, no home should really push it beyond that 3 month mark. Why is changing the filter so important? That’s the focus of today’s post, so just keep reading to learn more. Suffice to say, it has major implications for your heater in Ludlow. Don’t put this critical system at risk.

ductless-technicianIf you are considering the installation or replacement of a heater in Bellows Falls, VT, then you should definitely give a ductless mini split some thought.

Protect Your Home and Your Family with a Generator

October 7th, 2019

generatorIt’s just barely October, and not all of you are going to want to hear this, but—winter is on its way. Winters in Vermont can be beautiful, but they are also a lot of hard work and they can be quite stressful at times. If you ask us, it pays to take any measures possible to reduce that stress in any way possible. One recommendation that we cannot make strongly enough is that you take advantage of a whole-house generator.

A whole-house generator works much the same as a portable generator in principle, but on a much larger scale. While portable generators are great for power radios and other equipment for camping trips or tailgating events, they are not going to power your entire home when the power goes out due to winter storms. A whole-house generator can do just that, though. Or, at least, it can when it is properly installed and serviced. To ensure that this is the case, schedule your whole-house generator services with our electricians in Ludlow, VT.
