“Fall in” and Get Your Home Ready for Winter

The dog days of summer are behind us and it’s finally time to give our A/C units a break! While we’re all enjoying the cooler weather, crisp air and beautiful fall colors, proactive homeowners are looking ahead. They are replacing furnace filters and contacting Lee Plumbing Heating Cooling & Electric to schedule their annual maintenance calls now. A Lee technician will come to your home, ensure that your furnace is functioning properly-and can even suggest energy-saving tips for the cold months ahead. Beyond just your furnace, however, there are quite a few small tasks involved in properly “winterizing” your home.

HVAC – Lessons of the Fall

Lee Mechanical reminds you that your furnace should be checked in the fall before Old Man Winter sneaks up on you with one of those below-zero days that all Wisconsinites know are coming. Heating systems, like anything else mechanical, should be checked and serviced every year. That is the only way to be sure your family will stay warm and comfortable inside despite whatever the temperature drops to outside.

Avoid Water Damage with Smart Technology

Technology has done a lot to make homes safer and more efficient. New products currently being tested are effective in stopping costly water leaks, seepage or broken hoses before you even notice them and water damage occurs. Homeowners and insurance companies are very interested, as the number of claims for residential water damage are climbing. With an average repair cost of $10,000, water damage claims cost insurers billions of dollars annually. According to New Jersey-based Verisk Analytics’ ISO insurance analytics unit, water damage claims hit insurers for $13 billion in 2017.

Fueling the Fire: Furnace Maintenance 101

Scheduling an annual maintenance call for your furnace can often get pushed far down on the to-do list in the busy summer in Downtown Kenosha and months enjoying events like Summerfest or the Renaissance Faire. Before you know it, winter is here, your home isn’t feeling as warm as it should and service techs are booked up. At Lee Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric we recommend making a note on your calendar in late summer or early fall to have your furnace serviced.
