Prepare Heating System For A Long Winter

Yep, the furry guy has spoken. Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and is predicting six more weeks of winter and a late spring.
We know the groundhog isn’t right all the time, but you still need to make sure your HVAC system is ready for that possibility. If you haven’t had a recent tune-up, then now is the time to do it.
Your Sanborn’s Air Conditioning and Heating professional can catch problems before they start. Many homeowners ask us, “Is this service necessary and is it worthwhile to spend money on a tuneup?”  The short answer is yes. You are talking about protecting the investment you’ve made in your HVAC system and keeping your family safe.
You know our Southern California winters aren’t like those in the cold weather states, but all it takes is one time – one time you have to make an emergency call in the middle of the night because your system stops working and the bill is going to make the money you would have spent on maintenance look pretty reasonable.
You know what else the long winter means? Our normally dry air gets even dryer leading to static electricity. If you are tired of those “shocking” experiences, there’s an answer for that. Let Sanborn’s Air Conditioning and Heating tell you about installing a whole house humidifier. The added moisture can make your entire home feel warmer and more comfortable. Your skin won’t dry out as much and yes, it will help eliminate those annoying static shocks.
A whole house humidifier requires much less maintenance than individual room units. You don’t have to manually fill it with water and clean the filter every day.
Just call Sanborn’s, and we will be happy to show you which home humidifier is best for you and your home to fit your needs and budget.
Even if you don’t believe the groundhog, you still need to follow the boy scout motto and be prepared. It has been a stormy winter for parts of California and can continue in late winter and early spring. Now is the time to make sure you have a plan in place that includes an emergency kit with things like flashlights, a battery powered radio, and lots of extra batteries.
One thing we know for sure, even if Phil is right, soon enough winter will give way to the heat of the long summer.
