Summertime temperatures in the Bronx can be extremely hot and uncomfortable. The heat and humidity levels can make staying inside your home almost unbearable - if you don't have a properly working air conditioning system. In order to prevent your home from overheating during those hot Bronx summer months (where temps can easily reach 85 to 95 degrees), schedule a heating and cooling system checkup in late March or early April.
A good tip for finding a local heating and cooling company is to do an online search. Input keywords like hvac in Bronx into the search box to get the best results. This should provide you a comprehensive listing of local area hvac companies. Click on the website links and research the services each company offers. It is recommended to contact at least three to five companies in order to get a good price comparison. Also, when scheduling an appointment, make sure that you will not be charged for having a technician check your cooling system. Most reputable companies do not charge a service fee for this or for a first time visit. It is also recommended to select a company that has been in business for at least five to eight years. This will help to ensure that you will get an experienced technician and that the company has references and an established reputation.
A system checkup typically involves having a technician come out to your home to test the Freon levels in your air conditioning unit, check to see if the system filters need to be changed, and to make sure that your overall system is up-to-date and functioning properly.
Having a yearly checkup for your heating and cooling system can not only prevent long term damage, but it can also help save money on your heating and cooling bills.
