Take a Look Back At Your Heater’s Performance This Year

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

Green Grass? Flowers? We’ll Get There Soon!

When it comes to using our heaters in Southern Vermont, we are definitely not in the clear just yet. While other areas in the country are looking at cold temperatures in the rearview mirror, we’ve still got plenty of chilly days and nights to deal with. The end is close, though, if not quite in sight just yet. That makes now the perfect time to start making an honest assessment of your heating system, its overall performance, and your overall satisfaction with that performance.

We’re not saying that you should only focus on the negative here, of course. It’s possible that you were totally satisfied with your system, as you have been in years past, and a little routine maintenance prior to next season is all you’ll need to get back into it. However, you may also start to realize that things are quite meeting your expectations when it comes to your home heating experience. That’s when you contact us!

Monday, December 2nd, 2019

daughter-mother-snowIn this day and age, you’d have to be an exceedingly choosy customer to claim that there aren’t enough heating options available to you. In fact, we’d go so far as to suggest that there are actually so many different options to choose from that the real trouble is simply narrowing down your heating options.

Don’t Forget About Your Heater’s Filter!

Monday, 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.
