Call Mast Heating & Cooling to Prepare for Long Winter Ahead

The holidays are great for family get-togethers and parties, but do you know another meaning attached to Christmas Day and New Year’s Day? It means winter is just starting, and we have a lot more cold weather ahead of us before the arrival of our Michigan spring. Make sure you and your home are ready. If you need a furnace repair or tune-up in Grand Rapids, call Mast Heating & Cooling right now.

Our experience makes it clear. A lack of maintenance is the leading cause of heating system breakdowns requiring repairs. When parts fail, it’s most often because they system was not properly maintained. Our trained technicians can spot potential problems before the breakdown happens.

Think of it as giving the gifts of safety, comfort, and joy to your family. It will be the gift that keeps on giving, because regular maintenance on your heating system will make it last longer and work more efficiently. A tune-up by our Mast Heating & Cooling technician will always include a test for the presence of carbon monoxide. The heating season is the peak season for carbon monoxide poisoning. On average it kills more than 400 people each year.

You should also consider installing carbon monoxide detectors in your home. And we want to emphasize we used the plural form, detectors, on purpose. For true safety, a single detector really isn’t enough. There should be a CO detector on every level of your home, one near every sleeping area, and one located close to any door leading to an attached garage. A car accidentally left running can quickly fill a house with dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.

One of the best gifts you can give is a membership in the Mast Heating & Cooling Comfort Club. It makes heating and cooling maintenance in Grand Rapids worry free, because you don’t even need to schedule an appointment. We will do it for you. Membership entitles you to annual tune-ups on your heating and cooling systems along with a host of other benefits.

Please have fun and celebrate the holidays, but remember they are also a warning sign. Make sure you heed the warnings and get ready for the long winter ahead. Pick up the phone now and call Mast Heating & Cooling. Your comfort is our top priority just as it has been since we opened our doors in 1956.
