This is Comfort Bear, here to tell you more about furnaces. Lucky for me I don’t really need a furnace. To be honest, I’m already looking forward to the feeling of cool air from an AC unit blowing through my fur…
Sorry, spaced out there for a second. As I was saying: furnaces. Gas furnaces are incredible devices, and they’re crazy popular across the whole nation. Even so, you want to make sure it runs safely all year long. Gas appliances are safe when installed by a pro, but even then, they can fall into disrepair and invite some trouble.
Here are some of the common safety issues you can look out for with your own furnace:

Comfort Bear here. Let me tell you something about my cousins from the Arctic:
When they’re looking for a tasty meal, they rely on a sharp sense of smell. It’s so strong that they can even smell prey from under the ice.
If you humans had a sense of smell that good, you might be able to sniff out a fishy HVAC contractor. A bad HVAC contractor is a huge loss of both time and money, but it can be difficult to spot them.
Of course, humans do have something like this sense of smell, but they call it their intuition and experience. I’ll share some of that experience with you so you can sniff out a bad contractor.

What better way to celebrate the season than by giving?
We at Climate Control Heating & Cooling believe that this is a great time to be giving back to the community and giving to those in need.
Through the Liberty Community Christmas Tree program, we’re able to give food and gifts to less fortunate families in the community. This year, we did our best to brighten the day for 10 families and a total of 30 children.
“I wanted to thank you guys for the gifts, I really appreciate you helping my family out. Merry Christmas.”
To learn more about how you can adopt a family and deliver food to those facing a difficult holiday season, check out the Liberty Community Christmas Tree program!

Here’s the grisly truth about furnace maintenance:
Avoiding it is going to cost you some serious money through the life of your furnace.
The benefits of maintenance aren’t always apparent in the short-term, which is why many homeowners don’t take it seriously. However, after looking at the numbers and doing the math, it will become apparent that maintenance is actually what keeps costs down.
I’ll explain further down below:

Here at the office during this time of year, when my coworkers are coughing and sneezing thanks to seasonal colds, they always like to point something out to me: “Comfort Bear, you’ve never taken a sick day! What’s your secret?”
The answer has something to do with indoor air quality.

Comfort Bear, here. As much as I love talking about heating systems, I really can’t enjoy them. My fur keeps me way too warm, and I’m not about to have it trimmed any time soon (but ask me again in the summer). For you hairless bears, however, heating systems might be the perfect thing to keep you warm through the fall and winter.
Today, I can tell you all about the clever ways that humans have learned to heat up their homes.

Heating season is upon us, which means that it’s time to make sure that you have what you need to stay comfy and warm over the next few months. I tend not to worry too much about heating issues, having fur and all. For those of you not adapted to arctic climates, though, you might want to make sure that your furnace is in good shape before relying on it on a daily basis.
Preventive maintenance is ideal for making sure that your furnace stays healthy throughout the winter season. Still, there is a chance that you’ll have to deal with some level of issue during the winter, though, which is why you need to keep an eye out for signs that your furnace is dealing with some kind of problem. The following are some common signs that a furnace is in need of repair.

If you haven’t already, now is the time to get your home all set up for heating season! You don’t want to wait until the temperature really starts to drop before making sure that your home is properly prepared for it, do you? Of course not! Better to take care of it now, so in a couple of weeks you don’t have to worry about it. With that in mind, let’s go over some of the best ways that you can make sure your home is as prepared as possible for the upcoming heating season.

Cooler temperatures are ahead, but we’re not quite there yet. There are still going to be a few pretty warm days between now and heating season, which means you’re likely still going to use your air conditioner a couple of times over the next few weeks. You should know what to look for when it comes to air conditioner problems while you’re still using your system. You don’t want to have your air conditioner break down, at any time of the year, let alone now. The following are a few of the more common signs that your air conditioner is in some sort of trouble.
