Winter is not Coming, It's here and it's Mad
Old Man Winter is here and he's here with a vengeance. It's Furnace Time! Winter was pretty rough in Bourbonnais, Illinois last year and it's even worse this year. There are a few things that are worse than a furnace acting up in the middle of the winter, but for the life of me I can't think of any right now. Your furnace needs an annual checkup and if you put it off until now, you're asking for trouble. Waiting until the snow flies means you waited about 3 months too long. Now if you're depending on something like this old furnace to keep you warm through the winter, then you might want to invest in a space heater. Or rent a hotel room. And also a Carbon Monoxide detector, because this Ole Smokey is a death trap.But when I think of an old Smokey, I think of this old gravity octopus furnace. I know that this is a bit extreme, but whatever your heating mode, make sure it's safe and checked by a qualified professional.
Don't rotate the tires or change the oil on time and you will be buying new tires sooner
or worse yet, buying a new car because the engine blew.
The average life span of a furnace can be greatly extended just by getting this simple tune-up.
While the tech is there, have him give the A/C a once over at the same time.
That way you'll be ready for next summer.
Make sure your home is ready for winter. If you have questions, feel free to call
