Winter Resolutions For HVAC, Plumbing, & Electrical
The holidays are over, but the cold and often dismal weather is here to stay. Some of us want to sit on the couch in front of a fire, drink in hand, watching TV, but some of us are all about a New Year and improving our lives. So, what about your home? What projects can you consider or knock off your list for the year? Keep reading and find out!
Air Purifier– Being stuck indoors during the winter is a bit like living in an airplane. You have a deal with recirculating air and people sneezing and blowing their noses when all you want to do is watch your movie or read your book and be left alone. (Except if someone offers you free drinks, then YES!)
Have Godby install an air purifier! The Trane Clean Effects air cleaner cleans up to 99.8% of airborne particles. It can even remove particles as small as .1 micron. It is eight times more effective than the best HEPA room filters out there!
What about your standard one-inch filter? They are up to 100 times more effective. Speaking of filters….
Filters– Ok, I’ve got an easy one to check off your list. In between episodes or at half time of the basketball game, get off the couch and change the filter in your furnace. Boom! So productive! Now your system will run more efficiently.
Inspection– I’ve got another easy one for you. If you have your phone on you, which we all do these days, call or text Godby to schedule your furnace inspection. (317-471-8700) If you are a member of Club Godby, it won’t cost you a thing! Man, you are on it! High fives all around!
Humidifier– Chapped lips, dry hands, eczema flair ups are super sexy, but if by chance you want to do something about that, call Godby and have us install a humidifier.
They hook up right to your HVAC system. If you have a smart thermostat, you can track, monitor and maintain it not only on the thermostat but also on your phone. They are easy to install and super economical. Stop scratching and give us a call!
Fancy Fixtures– 1988 called and wants their fixtures back. Just sayin’. Go pick out some fancy new fixtures and maybe treat yourself to a tall, elongated toilet. Seriously, you deserve it.
Water Softener– We know you are psyched about those fancy fixtures Godby is going to install. They are going to look saweeeeet! But were those fixtures being eaten away by the awesomely hard Indiana water? Crusted with scale? Godby can repair any brand water softener and install new ones too.
Pump Up the Jam!– I may be quoting a song from 1989 or I could be finding a clever way to tell you to go and test out your sump pump. Winter snow melts fade into spring storms and both bring a ton of moisture. Check your sump pump or install a battery back-up, maybe both. Then when mother nature brings moisture you can laugh in her face!
Water Heater– There’s nothing quite like a hot shower after a long day of sledding with your kids. Let’s keep it that way! Have Godby come out and perform maintenance on your water heater. We can flush out the yucky stuff, check the connections or even install a new one.
Generating Naps– Just imagine, you are enjoying a nap on the couch where you were lulled asleep by the afternoon thunderstorm. Then suddenly you are awakened by a blood-curdling scream. Your amazing dream where you owned a jetpack and were cruising by your haters as you waved and smiled got interrupted by your teenager’s scream.
The power has gone out and their phone is on 2%!! How are they going to charge it?! More importantly, how is that quarter a cow you bought from a local farm going to survive in the freezer without power. All of those steaks, ruined!
But if you had a whole home generator you’d still be napping, making everyone jealous with your jetpack. At Godby, we care about your steaks and your jetpack dream. After your nap, give us a call to have us install a whole home generator.
Boob Light– Lookup. Do you see a boob light? Yes, I said it, a boob light. (If you’re not sure what one is, click here. Don’t worry, it’s safe.) If you have one of these it is time to upgrade. The blog that we linked even gave you some suggestions on what to replace it with. Give us a call and our electrician can upgrade your boob lights and add more lighting too!
Inspection– We all love the movie Christmas Vacation, but even Clark Griswald should have done an electrical inspection to see if his panel could handle all of those Christmas lights.
If you live in an older house, plan on remodeling, have remodeled or honestly, if you’ve never had an electrical inspection you should. You may even be able to figure out what that one light switch goes to.
GFCI– Another scream permeates your house Monday morning as your teenage daughter is trying to do her hair. You see, her outlet which has a hairdryer and straightener plugged in it is for some reason connected to the same outlet your wife is using to try and blow dry her hair and SNAP!
You have to take your daily jog down the stairs to the basement to flip a breaker. Just call Godby. We can fix that. Now the only screams coming from your daughter in the bathroom are because her brother won’t leave her alone.
Look how productive you can be and right from your couch! One phone call to Godby, one visit to the basement to change your filter and if you are super-efficient, one visit to a big-box retailer to find bathroom fixtures and new lighting. Let us help you check these off your list! One call to Godby solves all of your heating/cooling, plumbing, and electrical needs!
