When you stop to think about the blessings that modern man enjoys that were not available even a couple of short hundred years ago to your ancestors, it is enough to make you cry in gratitude. Running hot water from your kitchen and bathroom pipes, for example. Not all that long ago, in the grand scheme of life on this planet, the water we so freely enjoy would have had to have been hauled by bucket from some distant source, possibly strained, and then heated on a wood or coal burning stove … over and over again … just to take a bath. Let alone to wash your hands, do your dishes, or to wash clothes. Hot and cold running water would have seemed miraculous to your great, great, great grandparents.
Equally miraculous is the gift that technology has bestowed upon us in the form of interior climate control. The ability to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer at the flip of a switch and the push of a button. At one time, this modern convenience would have been viewed as a form or magic.
Unfortunately we have yet to reach the place in the evolution of our modern conveniences where they are trouble free, or have the ability to service themselves. Ignore the needs of your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) system and see just how quickly you will come to feel you’re still living in a cave!
HVAC technicians in Fort Collins will tell you that ideally, your HVAC system should be serviced twice a year. It’s recommended that the A/C component be serviced at the end of each summer and the furnace serviced at the end of each winter. By choosing to have these services performed as each season is coming to a close, you’re able to take advantage of specials and are also sure to find personnel available to do the service. (Prior to each season they tend to be so busy that you may be forced to use the system without servicing, which is less than desirable.) Regular HVAC service extends the life of your HVAC system and insures proper operation. This saves money on your fuel and electricity bills. Everyone knows how imperative it is to service an automobile regularly … servicing your HVAC system is equally important! Spending a little for servicing avoids spending much more for repairs or for a new unit later!
