Every HVAC maintenance job is insured and backed with their $1,000 quality guarantee.
Check Your Water Heater For Leaks & Pressure Issues
Nobody wants a leaky water heater for the holidays. A small leak can really put a damper on your holiday spirit but a major issue can cause a catastrophe and thousands of dollars in damages to your home. Adding insult to injury, the issue may be something as simple as needing to replace a pressure relief valve. Consider installing a leak detector to prevent costly flooding damage. While you're at it, we recommend having a professional come out annually to check your pipes as well.
Make Sure Your Holiday Decor Is Tight!
Keep your spirits bright and your home safe when decorating this holiday season. Take the time to make sure all of your electrical holiday decorations have tight connections and that your exterior decorations are labeled for outdoor use only. This will ensure that you and yours have a safe and merry holiday.
When the season of twinkling lights and festive decor is done and it's time to say goodbye to another year of Christmas cheer make sure to take down your lights with care. (Pro Tip: Wrap them around a plastic hanger so they don't get tangled)
Inspect And Insulate Doors And Windows
10 to 12 percent of a home's heating loss is due to a lack of insulation on the doors and windows. Before winter arrives and your heating bill skyrockets, schedule to have your doors, windows, and attic inspected for leaks, water damages, and infestation. It's important to catch these issues early and avoid costly repair after the expense of the holidays.
