Celebrate the Holiday by Prepping for Summer NOW
Happy President’s Day! This month, kids all over the country are studying presidential history and celebrating the birthdays of two great forefathers—George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. As we look back on these groundbreaking presidents, we think about how their leadership helped shape our nation. Of course, these historical figures had many things in common, including strength, vision and determination. But they also shared another common trait we find essential: Excellent planning! Being a great planner is the first step toward a successful legacy—especially if you’re a homeowner!
Just like Abe and George, homeowners should make plans. But theirs should include home strategies that ensure their indoor comfort stays consistent each and every season. So, let us ask you: Have you set your own plans in motion for summer yet? If not, let Blue Ribbon—your No. 1 heating installer in Bastrop, TX, be the first to help!
5 Ways to Prep Your Home for Summer—It’s Never Too Early
At Blue Ribbon, we want nothing but the best for our customers so we’re always willing to help. To get your home in presidential shape for summer, zone in on these top five tips.
1. Change those filters.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but homeowners are notorious for forgetting about them. Dirty filters cause your system to work harder than necessary—throwing off your energy efficiency, aging your system and increasing those energy bills.
2. Consider an air conditioning replacement.
If you suffered through inconsistent temperatures due to a faulty cooling system last summer, don’t do it again. An outdated air conditioning system can truly be an energy-waster—not to mention the drain it puts on your wallet. If your system is over 12 years old, your energy bills have skyrocketed and your home simply isn’t keeping your family cool, it’s probably time for an AC replacement. Handling this upgrade now versus later in the summer—when everyone’s AC is tanking—is a great idea. Call our pros at Blue Ribbon to schedule your replacement and installation sooner than later!
3. Schedule your annual maintenance check.
You take your car to be serviced every 5,000 miles, right? Well, in the same vein, your HVAC needs regular TLC. Call Blue Ribbon for an annual tune-up now and we will clean, lubricate and fine-tune your HVAC unit using our system of checks and balances.
4. Clean the condensation lines.
When these get clogged, your system can develop all kinds of cooling issues. Find where the pipe drains out and be sure everything is draining properly. If you need help, call our team!
5. Install a programmable thermostat.
Want to save money this summer and put those extra bucks toward a vacation? Then consider investing in a programmable thermostat. These beauties allow you to set temperatures for when you’re home and when you’re away. There’s no better way to control your comfort while saving money and energy!
