Modern heating systems, when professionally installed and serviced, are incredibly reliable. That does not mean that they’re 100% reliable,  though, or that any heater ever can be. If you encounter a salesman or service technician telling you otherwise, we recommend that you reconsider doing business with that individual. Just because no heater is 100% reliable, however, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take every precaution in order to keep yours as reliable as possible. That’s where changing the filter comes in.

chilly-manAfter a long, hot, and sticky summer season, the idea of cooler weather may not be that unwelcome. In fact, that change of pace may be quite anticipated.
