How The Groundhog’s Prediction Affects Your Heating & Cooling Needs

Groundhogs Day - Climate Control Company
You may know him as Punxsutawney Phil, but his full name is Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary. This year he saw his shadow and you know what that means: six more weeks of winter.

Okay, so maybe the groundhog isn’t right all the time, especially when it comes to our changeable weather here in Colorado, but you still need to make sure your heating system is ready for more cold weather. Now is a good time for a system tuneup, especially if you haven’t had one.

Your professionals from the Climate Control Company have been serving the Western Slope since 1956. They are trained to catch problems before they start. Many homeowners ask the question, “Is it really worth it to pay for a tune-up?” The short answer is yes. You are talking about protecting the huge investment you’ve already made in your HVAC system as well as your family’s safety.

Our technicians can find a problem like a carbon monoxide leak that could endanger your family. And if your heating system stops working in the middle of the night, with the winds howling off the mountains, you are going to have to pay emergency rates for repairs. If that happens you’re really going to wish you had paid for maintenance instead.

You know what else the long winter means? More shocking experiences with static electricity. It’s caused by dry air and a good solution is to install a whole house humidifier instead of room humidifiers. The moisture makes your entire home feel warmer and more comfortable and helps prevent dry skin. Even your animals will thank you when you no longer ‘zap’ them when you try to pet them. A whole house system requires much less maintenance than individual room humidifiers. You will not have to manually fill it and clean the filter on a daily basis.

Give us a call at Climate Control Company, and we will be happy to show you which home humidifier is best for your home to fit your needs and budget.

Groundhog Day should be a reminder that you need to be prepared even if the furry rodent is wrong about his prediction. Late winter can also bring all kinds of stormy weather and possible power outages. Right now make a plan to be ready with an emergency kit that includes flashlights, candles, a battery powered radio, and lots of extra batteries.

One thing we know for sure, even if Phil is right, the winter will end and spring will arrive… even in the Colorado mountains.
