Winterization: Preparing For The Weather Ahead


Winter comes with all sorts of joy and things that we are unable to experience at other times of the year: the holidays, good food, and time with family; however, winter also comes with harsh weather-which is why it’s important to consider winterizing your home.

Winterizing is preparing for the weather ahead, and there are several things you can do to ensure you and your family are comfortable when “the weather outside is frightful.

For your HVAC system, it is important to have a Peak completed-a maintenance and a cleaning. During this service, the technician will inspect the system for any problems, clean it to lower your utility bills, and perform maintenance services. Having this service done can extend the life of your system by as much as 50%, lower your utility bills by as much as $30 per month, and can make you aware of any potential malfunction of your system before it happens-allowing you time to get it fixed before the temperatures drop to 20 °.

During the Peak service, we test for Carbon Monoxide if you have a gas furnace. We can also install Carbon Monoxide detectors in your home to offer additional protection against this dangerous chemical, dubbed the silent killer. Our Peak Performance Program offers you peace of mind so that you can focus on the important things this season.

Having your pipes freeze is also a concern as the temperatures drop; American Mechanical, Inc., can insulate your pipes to help prevent freezing. We can also run heated wire that is plugged into a 10 amp outlet under your home and consistently keeps your pipes warm so that they do not freeze.

With the ever-present threat of winter storms, it is also a good idea to consider a home standby generator. We are a Generac ® Generator dealer, and we can set you up with a free consultation to determine your individual needs so that you and your family are protected from the cold in case of a power outage.
