One of the most important things you can do is sign on for hvac maintenance in NYC. The weather here always throws a few curve balls and you don’t want to find yourself stuck without a functioning heating unit or an air conditioner. I’ve noted in the past that bad weather spells always tend to kill a few people, usually the elderly, because one of their units went down and they either had heat stroke or froze to death. It is so sad because such a death is so preventable. No one should have to die this way.
Having a baby in the house made me acutely aware that not having a functioning heater in the winter could cause all sorts of heartache. I decided to take preventative measures and call in a company to inspect our heater and our air conditioner to make sure they would work year round. Our families live in other states so we would actually have to leave the city if something bad were to happen, or we would have to check into an expensive hotel. Neither option is desirable. It’s important to make sure the hvac system works.
I found a great company online that works heard at educating customers about keeping up on the maintenance. They came out to our home and went over everything with a fine tooth comb. They inspected the ducts, made sure all the units functioned, and even changed the furnace filters because they were filthy and that results in a lot of junk floating around in the air. What peace of mind I have now! I know when the bad weather hits we won’t be the ones scrambling for a quick repair. We will be toasty warm or comfortably cool while many people in the city suffer because they didn’t take the necessary precautions.
