drainThere is a lot to keep yourself busy with during the holiday season. Hosting your family, for instance. Making it through the experience of hosting your family, perhaps. While we totally understand the fact that this is a very busy and potentially stressful time of the year, and we really don’t want to heap anything else onto your plate, the fact remains that you do need to take some precautions when it comes to your plumbing at this time of the year.

Those factors don’t have to spell disaster or anything, but trouble certainly can arise if you fail to use your system responsibly.

Why Is My Heater Starting and Stopping Frequently?

Monday, October 16th, 2017

furnace-technicianWouldn’t it be great if you could invest in a heater, schedule routine maintenance, and then never have to worry about needing heating repair in Hartford, CT? We sure think so. Unfortunately for all of us, this is simply not the reality of the situation. The truth of the matter is that even the best heaters, and even those that are the most well-maintained, are going to encounter operational problems from time to time. Preventative tune-ups limit the risk of problems, but eventually one will strike!

When it does, it is very important that you schedule professional heating repairs as soon as you possibly can. Putting any repair needs on the backburner will only give those problems the time necessary for doing more serious damage to your system.

If this is happening in your home, be sure to give us a call and to schedule prompt heating repairs!
