water-heater-maintenanceWater heaters–specifically tank water heaters, which are used in most homes in the area–usually do their jobs very quietly. Unlike furnaces or air conditioners, which typically show signs of trouble, water heaters rarely draw attention to themselves when there’s a problem. Add to that their typical placement in out-of-the-way locations in the home such as the basement, and problems have a way of spreading quite far before they are noticed.

Homeowners in the area have buckled down for the summer, ensuring that their air conditioners perform as expected and taking steps to keep cool in the midst of the scorching July heat.

It pays dividends over the long hot summer, and when applied over time, the number of benefits only increase. Here is a quick breakdown on how it all works.

Generator Maintenance Services Keep Households Ready

Monday, February 27th, 2017

Generators_iStock_000024890354_XXXLarge-meHome generators often see use in the winter, when blizzards and similar phenomenon can result in power outages throughout the Northeast. A generator keeps the lights on, as well as ensuring that vital appliances such as refrigerators and heaters stay functional in the midst of a crisis.

Unfortunately, such crises don’t limit themselves to the winter months, and while civic electrical grids remain eminently reliable, Mother Nature always has the final word in such matters. Standby generators require regular maintenance to function properly, and only trained professionals can do the job as expected. With winter drawing to a close, now is the perfect time to schedule a maintenance session for a standby generator, helping it get ready for spring.
