Give Thanks to HVAC Technicians This Year!

HVAC Service Professionals Provide Services To Be Grateful For

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, which means it’s time to reflect on - and express gratitude for - all those things that are too often taken for granted. One such thing that often doesn’t get the credit it deserves is the home’s HVAC system. But what about the professionals who install them, maintain them, and work on them when there’s a problem?

HVAC technicians and the many services they provide are an integral part of what makes a home tick. So in celebration of these men and women, here are a few of the key functions they serve and a few reasons why no home would be the same without them.

Keeping Homes Warm & Cozy In the Winterworm

First on the list of ways that HVAC techs make a difference is ensuring that the home has plenty of heat during those frigid winter months. A heater malfunction or breakdown in the dead of winter won’t just make the house uncomfortable; it can also be dangerous - temperatures can drop rapidly and put the family at risk of exposure. 

If the problem isn’t resolved quickly, the whole family may need to spend the night in a hotel just to stay warm. A fast and reliable heating service company can be a lifesaver in such a scenario, whether what’s required is a simple repair or a new furnace installation. Even better, an HVAC pro can help prevent these scenarios by performing preventive maintenance before the cold weather arrives in full force.

Making Sure Homes Stay Cool In the Summerhot at home

While a home’s HVAC system requires the most attention during Michigan’s harsh winters, it will also need plenty of care during the warmer months. A broken air conditioner can mean an incredibly uncomfortable home - but it can also be dangerous in its own right. Dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke can sneak up quickly and be potentially life-threatening, so it’s imperative to keep the home nice and cool. 

Air conditioners also play a vital role in reducing indoor humidity. If the home’s air contains too much moisture, it can lead to mold growth, damage to the home and furniture, and poor air quality. Professionals can help prevent these issues by performing spring AC maintenance.

Maintaining Indoor Air Quality

HVAC technicians can also help homeowners improve and maintain their indoor air quality. Keeping the furnace and AC in good shape and sticking to a consistent air filter replacement schedule will certainly help in this regard - but it doesn’t stop there. 

Too much moisture can degrade indoor air quality through mold growth and a generally stuffy atmosphere. But too little moisture can also cause problems, such as skin or respiratory irritation and increased susceptibility to colds and viruses. Professionals can combat these issues by installing a whole-home humidifier or dehumidifier. 

They can also clean the home’s ductwork to remove dust and other particulate matter, install air purifiers to help capture harmful pollutants, and help protect the home from gas leaks and carbon monoxide exposure.
