Is Your Home Ready for the Bitter Cold?

It’s almost that time of year!

Time to make the rounds at your house and make sure that it’s ready to withstand the colder temperatures ahead.

Cover the basics.

If you’re going into the winter months without making sure that your home is properly insulated and your basement and crawlspace pipes have been sufficiently wrapped, you should expect to run into some winter trouble.

We recommend finding a good checklist, like this one here, and making sure you’ve covered all the basics.  

Get your ventilation inspected.

Proper ventilation is crucial when it comes to effectively keeping your home comfortable despite inclement weather.

Even more importantly, a well-ventilated home lessens your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Gas stoves and furnaces can be sources of carbon monoxide if left unchecked. That’s why we recommend installing carbon monoxide detectors on each floor of your house.

Make sure your furnace is in tip-top shape.

The furnace is your best friend during harsh winter months, but it can quickly become your worst enemy if it stops working. Make sure that you have the best furnace for your home and that it has been inspected before it starts working overtime.

One way to make sure that your furnace doesn’t get overworked is to make sure your furnace filters have been changed. Learn more about how to take care of your furnace filters here!

Consider the possibility of an outage.

You never know when you’re going to have a severe ice storm that knocks out the power on your block. Being prepared with the right generator for your home makes all the difference in the world! Check out last month’s blog on being severe-weather-ready right here.

Tips for Weathering Storm Season in the MidWest

Whether you’re new to the Tri-State Area or you’ve been here your whole life, storm season always seems to catch our customers off guard.

Remember the ice storm during the winter of 2008/2009?

The storms will be rolling in before we know it, so we thought we’d share our best tips to help you out:

Be prepared for an outage.

Let’s get this out of the way first—it’s the most important point. Whether we’re dealing with tornadoes or a really serious thunderstorm, power outages are just a fact of life in this part of the country.

Check out this blog post for our best tips on making it through a power outage. Spoiler: you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a generator!

Get the best generator for YOU.

Generators are NOT one-size-fits-all. Depending on what you want to use it for, you could spend from $100 – a few thousand on this piece of equipment! That’s why we offer a wide range of options when it comes to purchasing a generator. We believe that generators can be your best friend if you invest in the right kind.

Not only will they keep your electricity on, but they’ll also keep your HVAC unit going so that it doesn’t have to work overtime to catch up once the power comes back.

Check out this blog for an overview of our home generator advice.

Be the most prepared business in town.

When your business chooses to work with BNG Heating & Cooling, we go out of our way to make sure that you’re able to keep your doors open during even the most extreme conditions. Power outages are no exception!

Work with a team you trust.
