Hi, at Feldman Heating we provide residential heating and cooling for your home. If your home has a furnace or air conditioner that over 10 years old, it might be time to look at modern equipment. Modern furnaces are not single stage devices anymore, they are two stage, they are modulating. They are able to keep your house consistently warm rather than having your furnace turn on and off. Air conditioners can also be two stage and modulating. The two stage and modulating air conditioners give you the opportunity to have much better humidity control than you can get with a single stage air conditioner. We can also look at whole house dehumidifiers to dry out your house if by chance you live on the shores of Irondequoit Bay, Canandaigua Lake, Lake Ontario, where the humidity is always high and the temperature may not be.
With freezing temperatures and snowstorms, winter can do a number on your home. As such, it’s important to prepare to protect your property and ensure you can stay warm and comfortable during the coldest season of the year. To learn how to get your home ready for winter, check out these helpful tips.
1. Keep up with routine maintenance.
2. Operate your HVAC system at optimum and stable temperatures.
3. Seal your home from drafts.
4. Beef up your installation.
5. Turn down the thermostat.
6. Use a programmable thermostat.
7. Change your filters regularly.
8. Use window treatments to help control temperature.
Every year, we are faced with the inevitable task of preparing for the coming winter weather season. Cooler weather is showing its face, and we have begun calling on our heating systems to go back to work for us. The change of seasons requires us to prepare our heating systems for the long, cold winter ahead, and these checks need to be completed before you click the thermostat to heat.
