How to Keep a Whole-House Generator Working Properly

Friday, March 20th, 2015

You can protect your comfort and convenience in a number of ways, as there are so many different types of HVAC systems and various appliances out there today. However, most of these devices are of little use if there is no electricity available with which to power their electrical components. That is why investing in a whole-house generator is such a great idea. When you need quality generator services in Greenwich, you need only contact the professional whole-house generator technicians on the Celco Heating and Air Conditioning staff. Not only will we help you to find the perfect whole-house generator for your home and unique needs, but we will also ensure that your system is in fine working condition.

Of course, even the best whole-house generator is going to run into trouble if it is not properly maintained. Whole-house generators require regular, professional maintenance if they are to provide you with the quality performance that you need in order to live in uninterrupted comfort. You don’t use your generator all that often, hopefully, and in order to know that it will be there for you when you need it most, maintenance is an absolute must.

There are a few tasks which the homeowner can handle his or herself in an effort to keep their whole-house generator working at peak performance levels. For instance, you may choose to change the oil in your backup generator on your own. Just like with a car, keeping clean oil in your generator is key in maintaining the quality of its performance.

If you do change the oil in your generator, make sure that you replace the oil filter as well. It does not pay to cut corners even when completing the most basic maintenance tasks. You can also change the air filter in your generator if you so choose. This is probably the simplest step to take in order to keep your generator running properly.

Even if you are comfortable with completing these steps – and you must never do anything with generator which you are not comfortable with – it is still necessary to schedule routine maintenance services. There is just no better alternative if you hope to get the very best performance thhat your whole-house generator has to offer.

If you are ready to schedule professional generator services in Greenwich with technicians you can count on, give Celco Heating and Air Conditioning a call today.

Take Advantage of Our Residential AC Maintenance Program

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Spring has finally arrived: the season of air conditioning maintenance. You may not think of spring that way, but it is good to keep AC maintenance in mind as this part of the year begins. Before moving into the hot weather of the summer, it is wise to take precautions to see that the cooling system that will keep your home comfortable is up to the task.

Air conditioning maintenance isn’t a minor chore that you can do on your own; it’s a professional job that requires HVAC technicians with special training and experience. To sign up for an excellent residential AC maintenance program in Norwalk, CT and throughout Fairfield County, call up Celco Heating and Air Conditioning today. Our maintenance plan will not only see that your air conditioner is ready for the summer, it will also take care of your heater in the fall and deliver you other benefits as well.

Why a professional maintenance program is beneficial

Signing up for a residential air conditioning maintenance program isn’t just a good idea: it’s mandatory if you want to receive a full life from your AC and keep energy bills under control. Each year that an air conditioning system goes without routine maintenance from a professional, it will start to lose its energy efficiency, raising the cost to run it. This increase in operating stress will also cause the system to age faster and need to have a replacement much earlier.

An air conditioning system that receives regular maintenance will also suffer from fewer repair issues and a reduced chance that it will break down during a hot summer day. Simple peace of mind that your AC will keep working through the hottest months of the year is perhaps the best benefit of routine maintenance.

The maintenance program from Celco Heating and Air Conditioning has some other important advantages to consider: you will receive a 15% discount on our other services; you’ll be able to jump to the head of the line when you need fast assistance; and we will give you a 10% discount off duct cleaning. You also won’t need to worry that you’ll forget to schedule maintenance every spring: our technicians will contact you to remind you when your system is due for its regular inspection and tune-up.

To find out more about our excellent residential AC maintenance program in Norwalk, CT, just give us a call today. It’s never too soon in the spring to get started with preparing your air conditioner.

Here’s Why You Should Think About Replacing Your Water Heater

Friday, March 6th, 2015

Of all the great luxuries that modern appliances make possible, conveniently heating water for use throughout our homes is certainly one of the most vital to our day to day lives. It is easy to take something as ubiquitous as hot water flowing from your taps for granted, of course, provided that you don’t encounter problems with your hot water supply. Should you run into such issues, though, it becomes quite evident, quite quickly, just how burdensome an underperforming or unreliable water heater really is. A water heater replacement in Stamford may not be the most exciting way in which to spend your hard earned money. However, there are a few situations in which replacing your water heater may be your best course of action. Here are a few tips to help you decide if the time has come to replace your water heater, courtesy of the pros here at Celco Heating and Air Conditioning.

One reason to consider replacing your water heater is, of course, if that system breaks down entirely. Ideally, though, you won’t wait until this happens. Frequent repair needs alone are enough to suggest that a new water heater is a smart investment. Just because a professional technician can repair your water heater, remember, does not mean that it is a system worth repairing. It may make more sense to save the money that you’d spend on frequent repairs down the road by spending the money necessary to invest in a new system now. You’ll enjoy a more reliable performance from your water heater, and a longer lifespan than you’d likely get from one that encounters operational problems with any regularity.

Keep in mind too that your water heater, especially if older, may fail to satisfy your efficiency expectations even when functioning properly. There has been a lot of innovation in water heater technology over the years, and you may simply be paying more money than you should have to in order to heat water for use throughout your home. By replacing an old, inefficient system, or even one that is just not of the right size for your home and was installed at some point any way, you can get better efficiency when heating water. Over time, these energy savings can help you to offset the initial expense of investing in a newer model.

We are happy to answer any questions that you may have. If a new water heater is the right option for your situation, count on us to install it with the greatest of care.

To learn more about available water heaters, or to schedule your water heater replacement in Stamford with a qualified professional, just give Celco Heating and Air Conditioning a call.
