Maintenance Tips for Buffalo, NY
A few simple steps can make your heating and cooling systems work much better. By taking care of these routine maintenance tasks, you’ll make your home safer and more comfortable.
Change Smoke Detector and Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm Batteries Once a Year

Smoke detectors and CO alarms save lives by alerting residents to dangerous fires or deadly carbon monoxide. In order for these products to work, they need working batteries. Change these batteries at least once a year for fresh results. A good time to change the batteries is when the clocks change for Daylight Saving Time.

You should also check your smoke and CO alarms at least once a month to make sure that they’re still working properly. Make sure that you have both kinds of alarm installed on every level of the home and outside sleeping areas. However, you don’t need to worry about putting a CO alarm in the attic or a basement unless there is a sleeping area in that part of the home.
Change Filters

Simply changing your filters can extend the life of your heating and cooling system. A dirty or clogged filter can cause damage to your furnace or central air system. Your furnace might overheat, or your A/C compressor may burn out, depending on which you are running at the time.

You can change the filters yourself, or you can have us do it for you when you sign up for our preventative maintenance plan. Give us a call at 716-827-8652 to learn more.

Change Thermostat Batteries

Your thermostat should have a low battery indicator, but for best results, replace the batteries once a year. By replacing your batteries proactively, you don’t have to worry about your system shutting down due to a lack of battery power. We recommend that you change the batteries just before the fall heating season.
