With winter now behind us, the most exciting time of the year has finally come! That’s right: the time for air conditioning maintenance.
Okay, so you might not be able to share our enthusiasm for air conditioning maintenance and HVAC services (it’s kind of all we think about, after all). But we bet you could if we gave you some good reasons to get excited about it.
AC maintenance isn’t just a chore—it’s the best way to get your HVAC system started on the right foot this year.

The idea of a fireplace certainly sounds nice, but like any investment into a home appliance, you’ll want to do some research before making a commitment.
When it comes to fireplaces, that can be tricky. Even though they do provide the important function of keeping your home warm, it’s no secret that many homeowners want them simply because they look and feel nice.
Balancing the “need” vs. “want” in this way is something unique to fireplaces. Fortunately, we have a few perspectives that might help you decide.

First off, we’d like to clarify and say that maintenance isn’t optional for any HVAC system. Neglecting maintenance is the surest way to shorten the lifespan of your system and to spend more money on monthly energy bills.
But we also don’t want to understate the importance of getting maintenance for natural gas furnaces in particular. While gas furnaces in Nanuet are indeed safe to use, that can only be true when they are regularly inspected and tuned-up.

Fireplaces are wonderful additions to your home for their aesthetic and functional charm. Styles range from rustic and traditional in appearance to sleek and modern. As for the type of fireplace, there are the traditional wood burning kind, gas-fueled, electric, wood-stove… the list goes on.
Regardless of which kind of fireplace you choose, however, an important thing to keep in mind is how that new fireplace will affect your indoor air quality. While modern-day fireplaces are incredibly safe to operate, some of them need to be operated according to their respective instructions. Failing to do so can create risks like polluting your indoor air with harmful exhaust.
Today, we’ll go over some ways that you can keep your air quality intact while using a fireplace.

We have a wide range of indoor air quality products, but just knowing that doesn’t do you too much good. Instead, it makes much more sense to figure out what it is about your indoor air that’s bothering you. Then, after testing your air, we can figure out which products are best for you.
Even if you don’t think your air is bothering you, read over these cases for indoor air quality products anyways. You might realize that your air quality could be better than you initially thought.

For all the positive talk you hear about heat pumps, there’s always one objection that people have:
Can they really heat your home efficiently in winter?
The simple answer is “yes.” But it’s a very good question. After all, the way a heat pump works is by “recycling” the warmth in the air. If it’s extremely cold outside, how can a heat pump still function? Knowing the answer to this question may determine whether a heat pump system is right for your home. Keep reading and we’ll explain.

For homeowners, a generator means peace of mind. For a business owner, a generator can mean everything. Even if the power outage is due to scheduled maintenance from the electric company, that doesn’t mean your business doesn’t depend on a constant source of running electricity.
A generator could be just the thing that your business needs. We’ll help you find the one that is best for you.

If you’ve ever wanted the charm of a fireplace but none of the hassle of splitting your own logs, a gas fireplace is the right choice for you. And for those who do own a gas fireplace, you know exactly what we’re talking about.
However, the components in a gas fireplace do need proper maintenance if you want to keep enjoying it. In this post, we’ll go over a few types of gas fireplace problems and their causes.

There’s no appliance in your home that goes from “barely remembered” to “absolutely crucial” as quickly as a whole-house generator does. These generators, also known as standby generators, are installed outside of the home and connected to a fuel source.
Of course, a generator can only help you if it’s working. We can’t imagine anything as frustrating as installing a generator just for the purpose of running it through a disaster and then having it fail to start on the day of said disaster. To make sure it’s ready, we highly urge you to have your routine maintenance performed.

With the coming of a new season, we always suggest that homeowners have their entire HVAC and electrical systems checked over with some routine maintenance. “Maintenance check” are the two magic words that will get an HVAC professional to check your entire home and give you some peace of mind that everything’s in working order.
Of course, we don’t want you to forget anything during this check. We’ve made a list of some of the devices and systems that people sometimes forget to have checked when the new season arrives.
