Getting through the winter season that we encounter around here is no easy task, and it requires a good heating system. No space heater is going to be able to provide the level of comfort that a furnace can offer. Well, it could contend with your furnace if said furnace completely broke down. If that is the case though, you still shouldn’t plan for a whole winter of struggle with your space heater to attempt to warm up.
If something goes wrong with your furnace, your best option is to reach out to us for furnace service in Staten Island, NY. One of our technicians will be able to diagnose whether your system is salvageable or whether it is time to retire and replace it. If you find yourself in the second situation, just make sure you are prepared with an idea of what type of furnace you want next! The goal is to pair you with the one that meets your needs best, after all.

We know that all of us are getting a little tired of being inside for a majority of the time. At least the cold weather helps incentivize keeping to the great indoors. We know that there aren’t many people who would want to spend extra time outside when it is cold and wet. The question that we have for you is this: How comfortable is your indoor space going to be these next few months?
A comfortable home can make it even easier to just curl up on the couch to read or watch the game. A cold home, however, may leave you seeking warmth and comfort somewhere else. If your home seems to edge more towards the “uncomfortable” category because of a faulty boiler, we want you to know that we are here to help.

There are plenty of different issues that your heating system can run into. Did you know that getting dirty can be one of them? We know it can be a surprise but it is true. If the internal workings of your heating system become overly dirty, it can hinder its ability to create heat and can even create a safety risk if allowed to go unaddressed for too long.
So, how do you handle a dirty heater? While it can help to run a dust rag over the inside of your furnace blower door, we urge you to leave the rest to a professional technician. We can address the dirty build-up in your heater and a variety of other issues with our heating maintenance in Staten Island, NY.

Some people may still be reeling from the high heat of summer but fall has stepped up to the plate and temperatures are already dropping. Most of us can feel safe in shutting down our air conditioners for the year at this point. The next step, of course, is preparing our heaters for the winter chill to come.
If you haven’t scheduled your heating maintenance appointment just yet, you still have plenty of time to do so. With that said, we don’t suggest delaying too long! Getting your heating maintenance taken care of early on is always better, especially because of how much it helps your comfort.
