3 Reasons Why Prompt Heater Repairs Are Cost-Effective

Monday, November 9th, 2020

money-savingWhen something goes wrong with a system in your house, you typically react in one of two ways. You schedule service to address the problem right away, or you convince yourself that it’s no big deal. If you’re the latter type of person, we’ll get to know you well. Because you are going to need much more frequent service than those falling into the former category.

We get it.  You don’t want to “waste” your money servicing a system that isn’t really that bad off. Our point is that it’s best to intervene at the first sign of trouble, before your system is really “that bad off.” Heaters can turn the corner quickly, and you don’t want to wind up with a total breakdown on your hands. In the long run, acting fast will actually save you money over time.

You Cannot Afford to Skip Your Heating Tune-Ups

Monday, February 17th, 2020

furnaceDon’t rock the boat, you may be telling yourself.  There’s nothing wrong with my heater—why would I service it when there’s nothing wrong? Just to give a contractor the chance to find something wrong and charge me for it? No thanks! Look, we understand that a lot of homeowners want to believe that an operational heater means a properly functioning, problem-free heater. This just isn’t the case, though. A functional heater does not mean a heater performing at peak levels!

Then let’s use this opportunity to explore the reasons why you simply cannot afford to skip your heating tune-ups!

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!
