If you’ve been following the Comfort Bear and our blog here for very long, you might have noticed some changes. The biggest one would be the change to our name! In our efforts to service your entire home and bring ultimate comfort to your living space, you can now not only contact our team for expert HVAC professionals, but reach out any time you need a plumber in Lee’s Summit, MO, too!
We don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty great to the Comfort Bear.
Of course, any plumbing system can only work as well as expected if it’s properly installed and cared for. Part of that care means having your plumbing system inspected and maintained. Why so? Read on!
If there’s any appliance the Comfort Bear doesn’t want to be without, it’s a water heater! Sure, I may have a lot of fur to keep me warm but let’s face it, chilly showers aren’t fun for anyone.
Plus, who wants to wash their dishes and clothes with artic water? Not the Comfort Bear, that’s for sure.
Unfortunately, many homeowners take their water heaters a bit for granted. Like the majority of their plumbing systems, water heaters are usually tucked away, out of sight in a corner of the garage or inside a storage closet. This means that when something goes wrong with it, it’s often missed until it’s too late.
It’s important to know the signs for when your water heater is in trouble, which we’ve highlighted below. Read on, and contact the Comfort Bear with any questions you might have!
Summer is just about to end, a concept that the Comfort Bear can certainly get behind! Do you know how hot it gets under all this fur?
Of course, we still do have some hot weather ahead, and there’s always the chance of a heat wave too. The last thing you need is an old air conditioner to shut down on you when you still need it to work at it’s very best.
So, if you suspect yours isn’t up to the task of keeping you cool much longer, let alone working next summer, it may be a good idea to consider replacing it with a new system now. The Comfort Bear and Team are here to help you decide if it really is time to do so, or if you can maybe get by with another repair. If your system is under 10 years old and hasn’t had a lot of repair needs in that time, it’s a different story than one that’s over 15 and has had multiple issues. We’ll elaborate below, as we go through the reasons you may want to consider replacement:
If there’s anything humans and bears have in common, it’s the desire for a clean home. Okay, well that’s not necessarily true, but even Comfort Bear will admit that when I’m indoors, I don’t want to be sniffling and sneezing because of dust.
You might be thinking that’s just a fact of life this time of year, as the cooler temperatures dissipate and all the dust and pollen outdoors gets kicked back up again and makes its way into our homes. Well not to worry! In addition to getting you set up with the right indoor air quality services, my team will also make sure that your ducts are so clean you can eat out of them. Not that you would want to, but you catch my drift.
Here at the office during this time of year, when my coworkers are coughing and sneezing thanks to seasonal colds, they always like to point something out to me: “Comfort Bear, you’ve never taken a sick day! What’s your secret?”
The answer has something to do with indoor air quality.
Summer is not far off, now, and when it arrives you’re going to have more to worry about than keeping cool. Indoor air quality tends to suffer in homes across the country during the summertime, for a variety of different reasons. As indoor air quality in a home drops, so does your comfort. Low indoor air quality is also responsible for increased illness, so it’s a good idea to keep it as high as possible. Look at the following systems for some easy ways to improve your indoor air quality this summer.
There are a number of things that you need to do to get your home ready for the summer season. One of the most important is scheduling air conditioning maintenance services. You’re going to be relying on your air conditioner a lot over the next few months, and if you don’t have it tuned up first you’re going to be increasing the chances of something bad happening down the road. Preventive maintenance is one of the best ways to ensure that your air conditioner is ready to deal with summer. Read on to find out more about why preventive air conditioning maintenance is so important to the health of your system.
We’re getting deeper into heating season, which means you’re probably relying on your furnace more often to keep your home warm. If your furnace is not providing the levels of heat that you need to stay comfortable, you probably need to have a professional HVAC technician fix it for you. Before you call for professional repairs, though, you should check a few things yourself to make sure that it’s not a minor thing you can take care of. We’ve outlined a few of those minor issues below.
