Fall Maintenance Tips #1

Posted On: September 1, 2019

Although the temperatures are still in the 70s and 80s, fall is right around the corner and winter is not far behind. But before the weather grows colder it’s important to prepare for winter months to help prevent costly damage. In September we are going to focus on things inside the home. Below are the fall preventative maintenance steps that every homeowner should follow.


Fall Tune-Up

Consider having a professional check out your heating system to ensure it is properly functioning prior to when the temperature drops significantly during the winter months. We can diagnose minor problems and fix them before they turn into major repairs or replacements. This ensures it is working correctly and keeps your family warm all winter long.


Replace Filter

Yes, another reminder to keep that filter nice and clean. An easy step to help your system from overworking all year round is getting in the routine of changing your filter. Ideally it is changed out monthly but no more than every two months or so.


Visual Inspection

It’s important to take a look at your equipment such as your water heater and furnace to check if you notice anything such as water leaking. Periodically checking ensures that nothing is missed, and it doesn’t turn into a bigger problem before it is too late.


Test Detectors

Test all the detectors in your home to make sure they are properly working. Batteries should be replaced every 6 months. Use the changing of the seasons as a reminder to replace the batteries so the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors work all year round and keep your family safe. Having fresh batteries so there’s no doubt that they’re working properly.


Inspect for Leaks

Chances are likely that somewhere in your home air is leaking out of the windows, doors or attic. It’s a good idea to check for those spots that might be leaking and install weather stripping or caulk to the areas that might be leaking. Sealing the leaks keeps your system from overworking. This will also help lower your energy bill.

Fantastic service! From the staff I spoke with the two service and installation technicians, all were very informative and professional. I highly recommend JM Mechanical Heating and Cooling. I plan to utilize their services in the future for my semi- annual HVAC check-up!

I was impressed by their level of customer service, and they really care about customer satisfaction. The office staff are very friendly, and they follow-up to be sure everything went as expected, and really want to help if there were any issues. Brandon is exceptional, takes the time to explain what is going on and really seems to care about his customers. A+ experience.


The woman who answered the phone was very helpful and professional and she immediately gave me available times and fortunately Jason was able to come on site today, detect the problem and I ended up needing a brand new water heater after mine had been over 12 years old. Jason was incredibly professional, courteous, fast, and respectful of my home. I highly recommend JM to anyone and if I ever have trouble again they will be my FIRST call! Thank you for the exceptional service!!

Excellent service from administration to service. JM Mechanical conducts business in an honest and ethical manner at an affordable price. Service is also extremely timely. James H. has installed both a water heater and furnace at my home in the last 6 weeks. James is knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and a pleasure to do business with; I am very pleased with both jobs. Thank you JM Mechanical; I greatly appreciate your reliability, quality and integrity.

James H. and Jeff F. were prompt as per usual this morning and gave prior notification via text messaging that they were on their way. We have nothing but nice things to say about this company. They are always clear and concise on the course of action necessary to fix the problem. Every time we have used J.M. Mechanical we have been treated with the utmost respect and have never talked down to us like some other companies have done. They installed a new heat pump for us today and we couldn’t be happier with the results. They were fast and efficient in every way and we will continue to use them on any of our future needs.
