Home Improvements You Can Make with Your Tax Return

Written by: Metro Air

Many homeowners will be getting a tax return this year. Maybe that money will go into a savings account or toward a vacation, but what about using it to improve your home? Certain home improvements will even add value to your home, so when it comes time to sell the house, you’ll be able to ask for more. There are a variety of home improvement options that will not just give you an updated space, but one that’s more comfortable, too.

#1: Insulation.
Insulation is often unseen, but it makes a huge difference in how comfortable your home is. Not enough insulation causes heat to escape through your home’s structure. Adding insulation is an affordable way to ensure your home retains heat in the winter and cool air in the summer. The most critical places to have insulation are your crawlspace, basement, walls, or attic.

#2: New heating and cooling system.
How old is your home’s heating and cooling system? If it’s 15 to 20 years old, you’ll need to consider replacing it soon. Using your tax return money can help pay for a new, energy efficient system that will last for years. A heat pump could be a great option for both heating and cooling in one system. Or perhaps you don’t need a new furnace, but a new air conditioner for later in the year would be wise. Whatever your home needs, our experienced team at Metro Air Heating and Cooling will provide options that fit withing your budget.

#3: Preventative maintenance.
Preventative maintenance on your home heating and cooling system is one of the best ways to maintain its lifespan. Professional tune-ups also help keep your utility bills reasonably priced! In fact, our experienced team at Metro Air Heating and Cooling will check over 30 different items during your preventative maintenance appointment, including:

  • Clean flame sensor
  • Clean condensate line and trap
  • Check/adjust gas pressure
  • Check blower motor current draw
  • Check inducer motor amp draw
  • Measure temperature rise across furnace
  • Perform combustion analysis to verify Carbon Monoxide level

#4: Customer Care Club.
Did you know that we have a Customer Care Club that provides huge savings all year long? For only $15 a month, plus $90 for an initial tune-up of your system (and NO contract), you can get the following benefits:

What to Look For When Hiring a Heating and Cooling Company

Written by: Metro Air

Is your cooling system on its last leg? Maybe you’re looking ahead to the fall and winter months and need to plan for a new heating system. When it comes to making an investment in a new heating or cooling system, you’ll want to do some research. There are plenty of companies out there to choose from in the area. But which one is right for your specific project? There are a few key things you should look for when choosing the right HVAC company.

#1: Experience.
When it comes to hiring contractors to work on your home, experience is incredibly important. The more experience they have, the better. This is especially true when it comes to heating and cooling systems. Home HVAC systems can be complex to install. And without experience knowing how to install them properly and know how to handle any unexpected issues that can arise, your home could be left vulnerable to damage or an improperly installed system. When you are doing your research, look at the company’s experience in the local area. Figure out what their specialty is. Don’t be afraid to ask them about their recent installation jobs. They should be glad to talk about their experience and be readily available to share customer installation success stories.

#2: Reviews.
In today’s day in age, online reviews are where customers find important information about a company. Read online testimonials to see what people are saying. Look at the company’s website, their Facebook page, Yelp, and Angie’s List. If you see a recurring negative theme, take note. Look for any red flags.
