March 31, 2015

The end of winter is officially on the horizon with the weather warming up in Excelsior Springs you can feel spring just around the corner. Before you switch off your furnace and stop thinking about it until the following year, you’ll want to get it primed for its annual hibernation. There are a number of things you can do now to prime your system so it’s ready to go next season.

Flipping the Switch

There was awhile where it felt as though this day wouldn’t come, but the moment has finally arrived for you to flip the switch on your thermostat from heating to cooling. Before you set it and forget it, review your warranty. A number of warranties require yearly service and maintenance in order to preserve the warranty. If you have any questions about your warranty, the team at Colvin's Heating and Cooling will happily help you.
