How Autumn Weather Affects Your HVAC System

Written by: Metro Air

The Midwest is a beautiful place to live and brings a mix of weather during each season of the year. But did you know that there are several weather and environmental factors that can impact your heating and cooling system during the fall?  Here’s how to make sure it works well throughout the fall season, no matter what weather we end up getting.

Rainy days.
Rain becomes more common once fall and winter season starts, so it’s important to know how to keep your heating and cooling system protected during the cooler, wetter months. Flooding can happen on occasion, so in the event that there is over 15 inches of rain, it’s important that you turn off your entire HVAC system right away. This amount of water has the potential to damage the outdoor unit as well as inside electrical components. Once the rain has stopped and starts receding, call our team at Metro Air Heating & Cooling so we can offer advice on when you should turn it back on. If you end up having an issue with it because of water damage that happened during the rain, don’t worry. You can call use 24-7 because we offer an emergency service that can help get your system diagnosed and repaired with efficiency.

Wind storms:
When wind storms roll in, damage can happen. Heavier debris from tree branches can fall and harm the outside of your unit, but so can leaves, dirt and other debris that accumulates over time. If debris gets inside the inner workings of the HVAC machine, it could cause a system breakdown. To avoid this problem, keep trees trimmed, remove grass clippings and leaf piles as soon as possible.

In addition, make sure you schedule a preventative maintenance appointment every year and keep your air filters cleaned or replaced every 1-2 months. By following these steps, you can ensure that your system will work well, no matter what the autumn weather does. Not sure if your heating and cooling system can make it through another fall?

We Are Giving Away a Free Furnace This Fall

Written by: Metro Air

Do you know a hero in your community? Someone who works hard to serve others or someone who has done heroic acts repeatedly with no recognition? Community heroes deserve acknowledgement and our way to participate in that is by partnering with Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems to give away a free furnace. If you know a hero, our team at Metro Air Heating & Cooling Systems wants to hear from you! We are proud to be working in conjunction with the Community Heroes Program again this year, our third year in a row! With this program, we will donate a FREE FURNACE to a community hero that deserves it! This is something that we look forward to all year long.

What is a community hero? 
Community heroes don’t all look or act the same.  This person could be a work colleague that has demonstrated kindness time and time again, a teacher that has gone the extra mile, a friend that is going through a hard time but still demonstrates compassion to their community, or someone that you know of that’s making a positive difference in your neighborhood! A community hero regularly demonstrates passion and determination in what they do, no matter how big or small it is, and they’re making a difference in other people’s lives daily. Being a community hero can be tough and sometimes heroes don’t get the thanks they deserve. And most oftentimes, they don’t ever think that they’re doing something exceptional, but heroes do amazing work.

How to nominate a hero for the giveaway:
Bryant Heating & Cooling honors to 40 community heroes around the Midwest each year. We are excited to be a participating dealer again this year and will provide a free furnace within our community to the winner! All you must do is nominate someone that you think is a community hero and someone that needs a new furnace. Each hero has a different story to tell and we would love to be a part in how that story is shared and for the last three years, we have heard many amazing stories and have the opportunity to gift several people with a free furnace. Get more information and nominate someone here. Nominations are being accepted until November 2nd, so don’t delay!

Winners will be notified in December and announced in February 2019.
