Mr. Fix-It Says

· As you turn your HVAC systems over to heat entering the cooler fall months, it is common for there to be burning smell and often smoke alarms beeping as the dust that has accumulated since last season clears out of the vents.  Do not be alarmed, this is perfectly normal!  If the smell persists, or you feel there are other issues, please give the office a call.

· Flip the switch at the base of your ceiling fans to a  counter-clockwise rotation to maximize the circulation of your heat.

· Set your thermostat on a moderate temperature and leave it.  You will save money on your energy bill because your heat doesn’t have to work as hard when it just has to maintain a constant temperature.
