Groundhog Day—What It Means For Your Heating & Cooling System

Groundhogs Day - Masters Heating & Cooling

Did you watch in horror as your favorite weather predicting groundhog saw his shadow? You know what that means: six more weeks of winter and a late spring.

Okay we all know the furry little rodent isn’t right all the time, but you still need to make sure your house is ready for the possibility of more winter weather that could well hit Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan. If you haven’t had a heating system tune-up, now is the time to do it.

A service technician from Masters Heating and Cooling can catch problems before they start. Many homeowners ask the question, “Do I really need a tune-up and is it worth the money?” Our short answer is yes. You are talking about keeping your family safe and protecting the huge investment you have in your HVAC system.

You know what the bill is going to be like if your heat stops working in the middle of the night and you have to make an emergency call? It’s going to make the money you would have spent on a tune-up look pretty reasonable.

When was the last time you zapped someone or yourself with static electricity? That’s another sign of winter weather. The dry air makes those “shocking” experiences all too common. But Masters has an answer for that. Think about installing a whole house humidifier instead of a room humidifier. Your home will feel warmer and more comfortable because you are adding moisture to the air. Along with reducing static shocks, your skin won’t dry out as much.

It takes less maintenance for a whole house humidifier than it does for individual room units. You will not have to manually fill it and clean the filter on a daily basis.

Our comfort advisors at Masters Heating and Cooling will be happy to show you which home humidifier fits your budget and is best for you and your home.

Remember the boy scout motto: Be prepared. So even if you don’t believe the groundhog, you need to get ready for whatever the late winter brings. In some cases that could be ice storms and power outages. Make sure you have a plan in place that includes an emergency kit with a portable radio, extra batteries, candles and flashlights.

One thing we know for sure, even if Phil is right, the winter will end and spring will arrive in the Great Lakes Region… eventually. Let Masters Heating and Cooling help you be prepared. Remember our motto: “Masters Gets There Faster”.

“The men were efficient, careful, and persistent on detail to make sure everything was correct.”
“Great experience getting the A/Cs installed.”
