Test thermostat in Charlotte

What could be worse than a thermostat malfunction on the first freezing morning of fall? Don’t wait until temperatures plummet before you realize you have a thermostat problem. Test your thermostat to make sure that it blows warm air and that all settings are working properly. If it’s blowing cold air, or if the thermostat display is blank, check the batteries. If fresh batteries don’t do the trick, call Andersen Heating & Cooling for professional service.

Cover your AC unit this fall

Most Charlotte homeowners focus on their heating system during fall and winter, neglecting to maintain their air conditioner. Once your AC unit is powered down for the season, it should be covered. Leaves, twigs, branches, acorns, and all sorts of natural debris come falling from above during autumn. When they land inside your air conditioner, they can cause significant damage. Cover your AC unit to keep natural debris outside where it belongs. However, once winter comes and the leaves stop falling, remove the cover from your air conditioner. A cover can trap moisture from snow and ice inside the unit, which can also wreak havoc on your equipment.
