About Me
Keeping Grandma Warm This Winter

Growing up, I practically lived at my maternal grandparents’ home. I ate most of my meals at this cozy, brick house in the country. My grandmother spoiled me when I was young. Every weekend, she took me shopping with her. And, I usually came home with something new. My grandfather played catch and checkers with me often. He was always a wonderful listener as well. Sadly, my grandpa passed away right before my thirteenth birthday. My grandma still lives in the house she shared with my granddad. During the winter, she used to build fires in her fireplace. However she relies exclusively on her central heating and air conditioning unit now. On this blog, I hope you will discover the ways an HVAC contractor can help keep your elderly loved ones warm this winter.


How Your HVAC Company Can Help You With HVAC Maintenance

You probably realize as a homeowner that it's important to take good care of your HVAC system. The idea of having to maintain a system that you might not know much about might be overwhelming, but your HVAC company can assist you every step of the way, including in these ways.

Showing You How to Perform Some of Your Own Maintenance

There are some types of heating and air conditioning maintenance that you can actually do on your own. For example, your air filters need to be replaced regularly, and you probably aren't going to want to hire someone to come out and do it each time that it needs to be done. Your heating and air conditioning technician can show you how to change your filters and tell you what size and type of filters you should buy. 

If you have questions about any type of at-home maintenance that you should be doing with your HVAC unit yourself, your HVAC or AC service technician should be able to help you.

Reminding You About Maintenance

It's important not to skip any of the maintenance that is supposed to be done on your HVAC unit. You might not really know about the different types of maintenance that need to be done and when they should be done though. Your HVAC company may send you reminders when it's time to have scheduled maintenance done. This will help you avoid forgetting important maintenance when you're busy with other things.

Taking Care of the Tricky Stuff

Even though you might handle some of the easier maintenance for your HVAC system on your own, there are some maintenance tasks that are best left to technicians. Your HVAC technician can come out when needed to check out your system, perform maintenance that is trickier for you to handle, and make any repairs that may need to be made.

Keeping Records

For systems that are still under warranty, it's important to keep records to show that you have kept your system maintained like it's supposed to be. Of course, it's good to keep your own records, but if you use the same HVAC company each time that you have your system maintained, the HVAC company may keep records as well. If you need them when filing a warranty claim, your HVAC company might be able to help you with providing this information for your HVAC system manufacturer so that your claim will not be denied.
