The Importance of Regular Maintenance

Without a doubt one of the most important steps that a homeowner should be taking before Winter is knocking at their door is finding a heating contractor in Bergen County NJ. Winter is one of the worst times of the year to be caught with your pants down in the slightest. With each consecutive winter seemingly worse than the one before recently, I cannot recommend enough developing a system that can help keep your home warm throughout the Winter. There are few things worse than having to deal with a busted frozen pipe or your heating element and boiler deciding now would be a great time to break.

I had a similar experience last year that was so traumatizing that I created my ‘Winter Emergency Plan’ as soon as Spring returned, working all Summer to develop a finely tuned methodology to help avoid any catastrophic events that might crop up because of the stress Winter causes on homes. It is one of the more brutal seasons that can leave homes weakened thanks to the weight of ice on roofs and our external units (AC and Heating) which can cause all sorts of problems, not to mention all the pipes in our home.

I even already had a plumber come out to take a look at all the pipes for cracks, replacing several feet of piping that could have failed when they froze this year around. That’s what I call preparation! There is just no way that I am ever going to put myself through the nonsense that I had to go through last winter. Seriously. Being forced to leave my own home because I didn’t have heat was an awfully embarrassing moment for me. It just showed me that I was not taking enough care of my home and that I had to change.
