How Can I Prepare My Furnace for Heating Season?

Fall has been a little slow to arrive here in Suffolk County – great news if you’re a fan of summer, not so great if you’re a lover of autumn. But as we all know, cool weather will eventually reach Long Island – and when it does, you’ll be relying more and more on your oil furnace to keep your family safe and comfortable.

How Do I Prevent a Heating Oil Run-Out?

One of the biggest headaches that any heating equipment owner faces is keeping track of how much heating oil they have in their tank – especially during busy back-to-school and holiday weeks.

Unfortunately, those busy times correspond with the arrival of cooler weather here in Suffolk County, which makes your need for fuel even greater – and sometimes, even the most responsible homeowners can find themselves in the midst of a fuel run-out when they can least afford to be without heat.

10 Signs You Need Air Conditioning Service

Summer is officially underway here in Suffolk County – and although we have only dipped our toes in sticky summer heat so far this year, more is sure to come (that’s what the Farmers tell us, anyway).

If you got an air conditioning tune-up in LI before summer began – or maybe even after cooling season last year, if you’re really proactive – chances are your central air conditioner or mini-split air conditioner is in good shape right now.

Don’t Forget to Change Your A/C Air Filters This Summer!

A home cooling system is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your Suffolk County home – but if you’re not checking and changing your A/C air filters regularly, you’re probably spending more than you should on cooling bills – and you could even be shortening the life of your equipment.

When an air filter clogs, it makes it difficult for the air you paid to cool to flow into your living space – which means your central air conditioner will have to work harder to do its job.
