Life in the northwest has been the way of my family for as long as I can remember. Generations upon generations of my family have been raised on this land and worked this land. I can’t picture myself doing anything else either. But life on the farm does not mean the work stops once I’m inside for the day. It’s a lot more than tending to crops and caring for various types of cattle. We have to keep up with our home too, or it will not take care of us. While the summers here are absolutely incredible, the winters can also be long and harsh and you need to be ready for them. We can have long weeks below zero degrees and get numerous feet of snow in just one night. That’s why I always make sure to invest my time and money in my HVAC system. The heating and cooling system works hard for me to make sure that my whole family is always comfortable, and that is not an easy task, especially when winter will not let up for at least seven months of the year. Twice a year, a guy from our local heating and air conditioning supplier comes by the farm and inspects every inch of the HVAC system, including the ductwork and the condenser. This guy is great at spotting the little problems and taking care of them before they can become major headaches. With regular HVAC maintenance, I know I can count on my household’s heating and cooling system to keep working for us when we need it most.
