How to Get Healthier Air from Your Heater

Monday, January 8th, 2018

sick-woman-indoorsEvery forced-air heating system, like a furnace, has a filter (or it should). When you run your heater, it first sucks in air from around the home and then heats it before blowing air back out to the rooms.

However, this doesn’t mean that air coming out of the vents is always healthy. With winter comes viruses, bacteria, and other potential causes of illness that are airborne, so you should consider taking additional steps to protect your indoor air quality. Here are our suggestions.

Finding the Right Heating Technicians for Your Home

Monday, October 16th, 2017

This year, we were awarded contractor of the year!

In some parts of the country, heating systems are used so sparsely that they rarely have to deal with a technician at all. However, in our climate, heating systems suffer a lot of breakdowns.

It’s always better to find the right technician to work with the first time around, and to choose a company you’ll want to work with time and time again.

How can you find the right company for the job? While it might require a bit of trial and error, following our tips can help you find a contractor you feel safe and comfortable having in your home.
