I have enjoyed the Winter time weather.
I reside in the northern part of the country, where the Winter weather is especially severe.
The Winter season seems to go on for more than half the year. The temperature is typically below freezing and has no problem dipping well into the negative digits. The extremely frigid weather requires a very powerful gas furnace. Because the furnace operates continuously for around 8 months, it needs to be maintained in peak condition. The last thing I want to face is a broken furnace in the middle of a February blizzard. We often deal with road closing, icy roads and driving bans. It can be very difficult to convince an HVAC supplier to complete repairs during bad weather. For my own peace of mind, I have signed up for a maintenance program with a local HVAC contractor. They get in touch with me in the fall to remind me it’s time for service. A NATE-certified tech comes to the house and inspects the gas furnace. He takes the system apart to ensure there are no worn out or broken parts. He checks for any type of complications. He makes sure all of the electrical connections are tight and lubricates moving parts. She inspects the heat exchanger for any damage and tests the air ducts for leaks at the seams and holes. A comprehensive cleaning process gets rid of any buildup of dust and other allergens that can diminish airflow and contaminate indoor air quality. The whole maintenance service is usually done in an hour or two. It’s not all that expensive and certainly less costly than a repair bill. I can be sure the furnace is operating safely, reliably and at maximum efficiency levels. I spend less on heating bills and yet benefit from superior comfort.
