4 Things that Separate Us From Cavemen – Seriously

Safety, Health, Comfort and Finances.Those are four things that are pretty important. If you think about it, those are the main reasons we live in houses and not in caves.At Mt. Everest Air Heating & Cooling, your comfort is what we do. Our job is to make sure your home’s mechanical system is in tip top shape so we can limit your concern about those four items. Our precision heating tune-up is designed to do just that. Without regular semi annual tune ups, bad things can happen. Let’s look at a few…Safety
Depending on the type of system in your home, there’s a good chance it utilizes either a blazing fire or high voltage electricity to keep you warm in the winter. When everything is working properly, that’s usually not a problem. When things go wrong, it can become a big problem! Most home fires are started by faulty appliances like these.If your system is burning fuel, it’s also creating carbon monoxide (CO). CO is poisonous stuff. It’s also colorless and odorless. You can’t smell it or see it. If it escapes into your living area it will make you sick or kill you. As part of our precision tune-up we’ll check your system for CO leaks and potential problems that could cause leaks. These are just a few of the hazards that could compromise your safety. There are more, but I think you can see why safety is at the top of our list.

An improperly maintained air system can cause other problems as well. in most homes, heat is distributed through ducts using a motorized blower. Without proper filtration, that duct system could be distributing all kinds of nasty particles that can irritate allergy or asthma sufferers, or anyone who lives in the house. While we do our precision tune-up, we clean or replace your air filters and look for other problems that could make the system less effective.

Humidity control is important too. If you do have a humidification system, it needs proper maintenance or it can become a breeding ground for bacteria or mold. That’s unhealthy for everybody.

The main reason we have indoor heating is to keep us comfortable. Strangely, many people get used to living uncomfortably. It just becomes normal for them to be too hot or too cold, or to put up with cold drafts or excessive heat. A lot of those problems can be solved with simple adjustments. The average person feels most comfortable when the humidity is between 35-50%. Anything outside that range feels unpleasant, even when the temperature is where you like it. We make sure you’re as comfortable as possible.

There area 2 major ways a precision tune-up can impact your finances. The first is by reducing your utility bills. A system that’s working properly will use less energy.

A precision tune-up also saves you money by extending the life of your system. Imagine if you never changed the oil in your car–the engine wouldn’t last very long. The same idea applies to your heating system. If you don’t maintain it, it’s going to fail alot sooner than it should. When it does, it will cost a lot more to replace it than it would to have performed regular maintenance.

So there are the 4 big reasons why you should have us out for a semi-annual precision tune-up. It’s easy to do, just give us a call. In fact, its so easy, even a caveman….ah, nevermind. You get the idea.
