Winter is a wonderful season, but I find that the best times during the winter are warming up.
Whether it’s drinking a hot cup of coffee or tea, snuggling with a loved one, or sharing stories around a fire, all of my best memories of cold weather are when I was doing something warm.
While there are many ways to keep warm during the winter, the most effective way to stay cozy and comfortable is to have a properly working heater in your house. Space heaters may work in a small area, but they are terribly inefficient, and only heat one room at a time. Portable space heaters sometimes use flammable liquids as fuel, and tend to emit toxic vapors. Electric blankets are a go-to for many who live in colder climates, but they require large amounts of energy and can be dangerous, especially while you’re sleeping. I love the wood-burning fireplace in my home, but without regular inspection, I am leaving my home open to the possibility of fires and carbon monoxide poisoning. Having regularly scheduled maintenance on my home’s HVAC system ensures that my heater is working efficiently all winter long, helping to keep my house at a consistent ambient temperature, without the need for extra heating devices to stay comfortable. The best feeling of all, however, is knowing that my family and loved ones are safe and warm when they are in my house, and I am never worried if someone is too cold and unable to get comfortable. When my HVAC technician inspects my heater every season, I know that I won’t be faced with any unexpected obstacles to staying warm all winter long.
