All About Your Furnace’s Safety Switches

Monday, January 1st, 2018

natural-gas-furnaceFurnaces of the past had a lot of issues in terms of home safety.

Remember that anytime natural gas is used in an ignition system, there is a risk associated.

Check Your Heating System Early On

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Mug-woman-floorYou don’t always know something is wrong with a system or a part of your property until it’s too late. For example, you might not know a tire has gone bad until it blows out while driving. You may not realize the roof is developing a leak until it rains. These are things you want to prevent as much as possible, and for the most part, you can. Most people take their cars into the mechanic for regular inspections and tune-ups and many clean out their gutters while checking for leaks in the spring and before storms.

All of the investments within your home deserve the same level of care. When you have a heating system, you may assume it’s working properly if it was running just fine last year. But as with a leaky roof or a worn-down tire, sometimes you cannot tell until something goes wrong. That’s just one of the reasons it’s so important to check your furnace early on in the season.
