When was the last time your home cooling system was inspected?

Posted on Mar 28 2022 in Boone REMC

Spring is the perfect time to schedule a tune-up so you can beat the summer rush, when the pros are busiest!

Have your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system serviced once per year by a certified technician. He or she will inspect your system for signs of leaks, problems with electrical connections and wiring, and efficient thermostat operation.

The HVAC unit uses a lot of energy in your home. Getting the HVAC unit serviced can help save on the energy bill and decrease the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning on gas heating units.
