We’ve all been spoiled by a beautiful, warm, fall season.

However, make no mistake about it, winter is right around the corner. If you suspect you might need a new furnace for this winter season, you probably noticed some of the signs last winter. According to my friends at Ambient Comfort Heating & Cooling Professionals, here are some red flags you shouldn't ignore:

  • Strange noises
  • Strange smells
  • Carbon monoxide detectors going off frequently
  • Low humidity
  • High heating bills
  • Poor comfort levels or uneven heating throughout your home
  • Frequent repairs

The average lifespan of most furnaces is 20 years, so if you saw any of those red flags or are nearing the end of your heater's lifespan, don't wait to call Ambient Comfort. They can help you find the right heating solution for your home, from electric or gas furnaces to heat pumps, boilers, and ductless heating options.

Of course, an important way to prevent breakdowns is proper maintenance. I'm a member of Ambient Comfort's Comfort Club, which includes regular tune-ups, maintenance reminders, priority service, and more. Ambient Comfort is always available for 24/7 emergency calls, but, it’s much better to be proactive instead.

So explore the Comfort Club and consider turning on your system now to check for odd smells, sounds or anything else that might not seem right. Ambient Comfort takes great care of me and mine … I know that they will take care of you and yours. Learn more at ambientcomfortnj.com or by calling 856-213-6586.
