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.

Roughly 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point during her life. It’s a massive problem, and one that we are determined to do our part to solve. That is why we are donating to the Susan G Komen foundation this month. All of our team members have been wearing pink savers and hats all month, in order to promote awareness. Please join us in spreading awareness about breast cancer, and our search for the cure.
Update: Climate Control has donated $500 to the Susan G Komen foundation. We want to thank all of our Customers who joined us in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month this past October. If you missed out this past month, there is still an opportunity to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Please visit the Susan G Komen site directly to learn more.

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.

Well, folks, we’re finally moving out of summer and into the cooler fall season. You’re probably looking forward to some relief from the heat, but not so fast! You might still have one or two things you need to take care of before cooling season is over. Namely: whether or not to replace your air conditioner ahead of next cooling season. Now, you’re probably saying to yourself “Comfort Bear, you need to lie down. We’re moving into the heating season. I don’t have to worry about my air conditioner until next year!” Trust me, though, there are some good reasons to consider replacing your air conditioner really early. Let’s go over them below.

Air conditioner issues are common during the summer season. All that use puts added strain on the system, and for many air conditioners that’s enough to create new problems or exacerbate old ones. There are things you can do, of course. Scheduling preventive maintenance is one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner in good condition throughout the summer. You could just try going without air conditioning, but even if you aren’t a sentient-HVAC loving bear (you aren’t, are you?) you probably don’t want to spend the entire summer in the heat. Whether you’ve had maintenance done on your air conditioner this year or not, it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for signs that your air conditioner is in need of repairs. That way, you can call for repairs as soon as possible, and limit the damage to your system.

Duct cleaning is not one of those things that homeowners often think about. After all, the ducts are not the flashiest parts of your home. At least, I certainly hope they’re not. Take it from a bear who knows, though, keeping your ducts healthy is just as important as making sure that your air conditioner is functioning properly. After all, they’re two parts of the same system! The ducts serve as the lungs of your home. If they’re not in good shape, your air conditioner won’t be able to cool your home effectively. Poor ducts also have a negative effect on the quality of the air itself. Let’s take a look at why it’s so important to keep your ducts as clean as possible.

Seeing as how I’m more adapted to polar environments (fur and such), summer is an especially uncomfortable time for me. I rely on my air conditioner to keep me cool and comfortable throughout the summer season, and am especially careful to keep an eye out for any issues that might crop up with the system. There are many different kinds of air conditioning problems, some of which are merely inconvenient, and some of which can completely cripple the system if you aren’t careful. If you want to protect your air conditioner from the various kinds of issues that can afflict it this summer, you need to be aware of the kinds of symptoms such dangerous problems might give off. The following are a few of the different kinds of air conditioning issues that can completely cripple the system if you aren’t careful.

Hey, folks! Your friendly neighborhood comfort bear here. From now on, I’ll be taking over as the primary source of blog information for Climate Control on this site. It may seem like a weird choice to have a bear blogging about climate control, but I can assure you that I’m very well qualified. If there’s one thing bears care about, after all, it’s staying comfortable in our environment.
Today, we’re going to be discussing ways that you can tell that your water heater needs replacing. I don’t mind taking ice cold showers, but I’m told that it’s a bit less refreshing for people without fur. So, let’s get right to it!
