We don’t need to tell you about the unpredictable nature of Norfolk winter weather. One day you might dare to wear short sleeves, and the next you’re digging your car out of a snowbank. If your heating system has spent the last few months working overtime to keep your home warm we aren’t surprised, but the last thing we want is for you to be surprised in the event you have your heat on and you’re still shivering.

Consider the storms we endured this season, the snow and ice and lows in the teens. The kids loved missing school, and you likely had mixed feelings about your heating bill. Spring will hopefully bring more pleasant temperatures and a break on the heat, but now is the time to make sure your HVAC system works properly and can keep your family comfortable.

Do you need a new HVAC system? You can make simple checks to determine how well it works. Inspecting and replacing filters as needed can improve functionality – you may feel the difference immediately. It’s also a good idea to examine the seals on all the windows in your home. Leaks around window panes and doors can cause your HVAC to work harder than it needs to, and when that happens your units are more susceptible to early burnout. Keep an eye on your energy bills, too. If the numbers seem too high for the heat that gives out, take action.

When you call on Norfolk Air Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Electrical to inspect your home’s HVAC unit, you’ll receive a thorough examination of all heating and cooling equipment. We’ll help you determine if your system is good to go for the spring or if you should invest in a replacement. Our mechanics are on call to recommend the right service for your home; we won’t leave you out in the cold!
