Regular Check-ups

Keep a watchful eye on your system, especially during the colder months. If you notice unusual sounds, odors, or decreased performance, schedule a professional inspection with us to ensure it’s winter-ready. Regular check-ups will not only prevent unexpected breakdowns but will also improve energy efficiency, reducing heating costs and providing a reliable and consistent heat supply in your home through the winter season.


Units are susceptible to adverse weather elements such as snow, freezing temperatures, and strong winds, compromising their performance and longevity. Weatherproofing measures involve using durable materials and insulation to shield HVAC units from harsh environmental conditions, such as sealing gaps around windows and doors to prevent warm air from escaping and cold air from entering. Proper weatherproofing enhances energy efficiency by preventing heat loss and reduces the risk of equipment damage.

Humidity Control

As outdoor temperatures drop, air becomes drier, and heating systems can further contribute to reduced humidity levels inside buildings. Low humidity not only leads to discomfort, causing dry skin and respiratory issues, but it can also impact the structural integrity of materials within a space. Units equipped with humidification features become essential to counteract these effects by adding moisture to the indoor air. By carefully regulating indoor humidity levels, typically maintaining a 30-40% range, your system ensures a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. Additionally, proper humidity control helps prevent issues such as static electricity, which can be a concern in dry conditions.

Emergency Preparedness

In case of a breakdown, quickly assess the situation and attempt basic troubleshooting, such as checking the thermostat settings, circuit breakers, and filters; then, contact us for immediate assistance. Don’t forget, we offer 24/7 emergency services! Always be prepared with an emergency kit with essentials like blankets, flashlights, batteries, and our contact information in case of system breakdowns. 

Additionally, establish alternative heating sources like a fireplace or electric space heaters, but exercise caution to prevent fire hazards. Keep a supply of non-perishable food, bottled water, and essential medications to sustain yourself in case the situation prolongs. Again, regular check-ups help prevent breakdowns, emphasizing the importance of proactive measures for a safer and more resilient living space during the winter months.
