When the Programmable Thermostat Acts Up, Know What to Do

Programmable thermostats can save homeowners a lot of money and hassle, especially in a climate like Grand Traverse County’s. But like any appliance, they can malfunction.

HVAC Contractor: Ensure Top-Quality Work By Choosing A Reputable One

A new heating/cooling system is a substantial, long-term investment for a homeowner. It will have to operate safely and efficiently for more than a decade. It will require competent installation and all service should be performed by certified technicians. Given these factors, how do you make the choice of an HVAC contractor?

Every year lives are saved by alert, conscientious HVAC technicians or public utility personnel who shut down unsafe furnaces. This is most often done for the safety of you and your family members. Cracked heat exchangers, lack of sufficient air for complete combustion and faulty vents may produce deadly carbon monoxide, a common cause of a  furnace failure. The traditional term for this sort of forced shutdown is a red-tagged furnace, deriving from the fact that technicians used to actually tie a red tag on a disabled furnace and leave it there till the equipment was either repaired or replaced.


Looking For A Return On Your Energy Investment? Get In On The Ground Floor With Geothermal
