Home Heating Tips for the Winter Season


Home Heating Tips for the Winter Season

Things are getting chilly again here in Pennsylvania, and that means a lot of home owners are firing up their furnaces for the first time this season. If you made sure to properly prepare your furnace last spring, you should be ready to get things up and running without a problem. On that note, this is also a good time to do some end-of-season maintenance on your cooling system to ensure you’re ready to chill out when winter melts away next spring!

If you haven’t had your heating system inspected yet, it’s always a good idea to have a certified HVAC expert take a look at your equipment to ensure it’s working at its most efficient capacity so that you’re not wasting money or overworking your system as the weather gets cooler.

Before winter gets into full gear, here are a few more things to consider. The team at R&D Heating, Cooling, and electric can work on all of the equipment mentioned, making us a one-stop-shop for your home’s HVAC and electric needs.

Preventative Furnace and Boiler Maintenance

Our affordable maintenance contracts mean you’ll get our NATE certified technicians at your home to check on your equipment regularly. By scheduling these check-ups ahead, you’ll save time and ensure your home’s most vital systems are working effectively and efficiently. Taking care of regular maintenance tasks extends the lifetime of your equipment and can prevent catastrophic malfunctions from leaving you in the cold.

Ductless Heat Systems

Our experts have been installing ductless heat systems in homes and businesses of all kinds. These quiet, efficient, and effective systems can be used to heat and cool individual rooms like home additions, basements, and attics, can work in tandem to provide comfortable and programmable climate control across an entire home. The ability to heat or cool only the rooms you’re using means you’ll never waste energy on empty spaces, and direct, ductless circulation increases the efficiency even further.

Whole Home Generators

Winter comes with all sorts of hazards. Wind, snow, and ice can affect power delivery to your home, leaving your most important systems at the mercy of nature. Ultra-reliable Generac generators provide electricity to your home during the hours and days after power outages. Our technicians can help you choose the best size and location for your equipment, and we can install and test your generator as well. Don’t leave an important system like this to an amateur. Our team is trusted all over the state to provide the most professional service and the most effective results.

Prepare for Winter

In September, we posted Generac’s tips for winter-prepping your home. If you still have some preparation to do, now’ the time to get on it! Getting your home in order before the ice, snow, salt, plows, and cold take their toll on your property could save you a ton of money, and will help keep you and your family safe and comfortable throughout the cold months.

Our technicians can help with any of these tasks! From a simple winter tune up for your boiler or furnace, to a full-on ductless heat pump system install, we’ve got the expertise to get the job done. Call us today and schedule a hassle-free consultation.
