Don’t Get The Cold Shoulder by Williamsburg HVAC
Get Your Annual Heat Inspection To Keep Your Family Safe and Warm.
An annual heat inspection with a licensed contractor is critical to keeping your family safe and comfortable. We, at Williamsburg Heating & Air Conditioning, are certified professionals, trained to service all makes and models of HVAC systems, ensuring your home is free from danger like Carbon monoxide (CO). Often known as the SILENT KILLER, CO claims over 150 lives in the United States each year. You can rest easy knowing that CO poisoning is something we thoroughly check during our meticulous heat inspections. Older furnaces tend to have accelerated CO risks because of normal wear and tear. Over time, the exhaust vents corrode and crack, allowing gases to leak back into your home. This is why we put your furnace through a rigorous inspection which includes a visual infrared camera analysis of the heat exchanger before the
furnace is turned on for the season. Even if you’ve already started using your furnace, keep your family safe and warm – have it inspected today!
