How often do you think about your furnace? I mostly think about my furnace when I am freezing and then it’s mostly just a how high can I turn it before DH yells at me. I’m luckier than most because I live in Southern California where I don’t have to worry about being buried in snow. Although! We did get snow in my area. Not enough that it stuck but it’s SNOW just the same!! In San Diego?!
Having it be 38° during the day made me thankful that I get to stay indoors this weekend! Brrrrr!!
So, now that we are in the full blown “I Hate Winter” mode it’s really time to think about your heating system. The last thing you need to do is go stay with the in-laws because your furnace doesn’t work!
THE most important item in your home during the winter is an efficient heating system. Of course like just about everyone I know you worry about heating the house without breaking the bank. I want to be WARM. I also don’t want to give SDG&E my entire paycheck. Thankfully, DH is a fantastic handyman. He is great about changing filters and making sure that everything is working correctly. DH is also very good at realizing when it’s time to call in a professional like Halo Heating and Cooling.
We want to be certain that our furnace is as energy-efficient as possible and safe too! The best thing you can do is call a professional for that piece of mind. Halo Heating and Cooling does a 21 point system check. Including checking for leaks and unhealthy gases.
A few things that you can do for yourself to ensure a safer winter:
1. Don’t stack things in front of or around your furnace. I know this sounds like a no-brainer but make sure you aren’t storing anything flammable!!
2. Don’t stack things on top of your furnace.
3. A little late right now, but in the summer is the best time to stock up on filters. It’s good to have extra filters on hand.
Another important item to install in your home is a working carbon monoxide and radon detector! They are very important for everyone’s safety. Did you know that every year, more than 400 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning, this odorless, colorless gas, and even a non-lethal dose — which hospitalizes 4,000 people each year — can leave you feeling seriously ill, causing symptoms like dizziness, nausea, vomiting and chest pains.
I am impressed with HALO Heating and Cooling for several reasons. First, it’s hard to let a stranger into your home. HALO does background checks on all of their employees before they ever get to your home. Technicians are educated and trained to make sure your completely happy with their service.
Halo Heating & Cooling will exceed your expectations. Customers can expect neat and clean red carpet service AND a two-year workmanship warranties and a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee for the work we provide. We don’t use cheap parts, yet we still work to keep our service affordable.
