cold-manThe last thing that you want to experience is a heater breakdown just when you need your system the most. Unfortunately, that is just when your heater is most likely to break down! Think about it—if there is a problem with the heater that is causing it to struggle in its operation, it only makes sense that it will break down entirely when the most stress is put on it.  That leaves you and your family in a tough situation.

The St. Peters, MO, HVAC professionals on our staff have some tips to help you do just that.

Is This the Year for a New Heating System?

Monday, October 14th, 2019

cold-manOne of the nice things about living in Missouri is not having to worry about very frigid temperatures, heavy snowfall, and icy commutes in the wintertime. Of course, one of the bad things about living in Missouri is that our relatively mild winters can lead to a false sense of security at times. Sure, you may be thinking, our nighttime temperatures regularly drop below freezing, but things typically warm up to a more manageable level during the day. My heater is probably good for another season.

Here’s a tip—if you’re trying to convince yourself that your heater has another year of quality service left in it, then your heater probably doesn’t have another year of quality service left in it. We may not be at Minnesota levels of cold, but it is more than cold enough around here in the winter to necessitate the use of a great heating system. That’s why you need to work with the O’Fallon, MO HVAC pros on our team!
