Electric Furnaces Need Annual Maintenance Too!

Monday, November 13th, 2017

service_reminderThe winters in Corpus Christi are mild, although chillier than other parts of the state because we’re located on the coast.

With fall in full swing, now is the time we recommend people schedule their heating inspections and tune-ups. (more…)

girl-welcomes-spring-as-winter-fadesWith temperatures now starting to rise into the 70s and even the 80s here in Corpus Christi, we’re already getting ready to merge into the spring. You’ve probably already had your air conditioning system running during a few days (and it’s definitely time to sign up for a maintenance inspection and tune-up for the AC to see that it’s prepared for summer—our Service Efficiency Agreement makes this easy).

What to Expect During Regular Heating Maintenance

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

Without annual maintenance, you can expect a malfunction-prone system that wastes energy and needs to be replaced years before its time.
