Prepare Your Home for a Cold, Wet Fall Season

Fall HVAC preparations - Mast Heating & Cooling - Grand Rapids, MI

Is that a sigh of relief we hear? That’s right, autumn has officially arrived meaning the worst of the heat and humidity is behind us. At least until next year. For many, this is the best time of year with the cool crisp mornings and the spectacular color show nature gives us every year. Michigan, with its lakes and forests, has some of the best fall colors in the country.

While there is much to like, this year you could be turning on the heat a little sooner than normal. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting it’s going to be colder and wetter than normal, so you have to be prepared. Now is the time to call Mast Heating & Cooling to schedule your all-important furnace tune-up. The benefits of routine maintenance are well established:

  • More efficient operation means lower utility bills
  • Your home will be more comfortable
  • HVAC systems will last longer

While maintenance is super important, no heating or cooling system lasts forever. There can come a time when maintenance is a losing proposition. Replacing your old system can often make more sense than another expensive AC repair or furnace repair. Right now, Trane has a special offer to replace that old air conditioner using R-22 Freon™ refrigerant. Call Mast to learn the details.

We understand the upfront cost can be scary, but an AC or furnace replacement can actually make your monthly budget look better. Because of increased efficiency, new units can cut your utility bills by 30% or 40%. Imagine everything else you can do with that money when you cut your monthly expenses? Not to mention the reliability and peace of mind that comes with new heating and air conditioning.

So, breathe that sigh of relief and enjoy the crisp fall weather. Just don’t get so distracted by nature’s beauty you forget to call Mast Heating & Cooling to make sure you are prepared. You know autumn will be followed by another Michigan winter. The last thing you want is an emergency furnace repair or furnace replacement when the family is gathered at your house for the holidays.
