We’re now in the depths of winter here in Monmouth and Ocean counties, and as much as homeowners don’t want to admit it, there’s more to come. One of the biggest problems that rears its ugly head each winter is the issue of ice dams. For many homeowners, ice dams can be more than mere annoyances; they can ruin your roof (and areas of your home!) if left unaddressed.

Now is the time of year when homeowners in Ocean and Monmouth counties start thinking about how to keep things as warm and toasty as possible for when the depths of winter finally hit us. In most cases, people find themselves looking at their heating systems, trying to determine what—if anything—is going on. While HVAC systems certainly play into home comfort, they’re not everything.

The onset of winter often leads to homeowners in Monmouth and Ocean Counties reevaluating the energy efficiency of their homes. Sometimes, it comes from something obvious like a draft that can’t go unnoticed. In other cases, however, energy efficiency issues manifest themselves in more subtle ways, such as never being able to get the home truly comfortable in the heat of summer or the cold of winter.

While we have been experiencing a recent warm spell here in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, you can be sure winter’s chill is not far away. With each passing day, more and more homeowners are looking to ensure their heating systems are ready to face the harshest months of the year. Before the cold kicks into full gear, it’s important to make sure your heating system is operating at maximum efficiency, and the best way to do so is with preventive maintenance.

Homeowners in Monmouth and Ocean Counties are bracing themselves for the holiday season and trying to save as much money as possible as the temperatures outside continue to fall. We understand how difficult it is to save—especially around this time of the year. Unsurprisingly, this can make affording upgrades to your home performance system easier said than done, but we’re committed to doing whatever we possibly can in order to keep you and your family warm this winter.

Homeowners across Monmouth & Ocean counties are hunkering down for winter weather. As we spend more time indoors and gather with family for the holidays, having a safe and comfortable home is a higher priority than ever. One key piece of home safety is having a clean and clear dryer vent.

Winter temps are quickly moving their way into Monmouth & Ocean counties, which has many homeowners concerned about whether or not their heating systems are prepared for the chilly days ahead. Preventative maintenance is no doubt the most effective way to ensure that your heating system operates at peak functionality throughout the winter, but there’s no escaping the fact that emergencies can happen.

Many homeowners who live in Monmouth and Ocean Counties have heating systems in their homes that are more than 15 years old. While furnaces can last for many years if they’re properly maintained, problems begin to pop up the moment that maintenance falls by the wayside. In many cases, the best solution may be to install a new, high-efficiency heating system, which can serve as a massive upgrade to your home.
