Winter Weather Safety Tips for West Chester Residents

A winter in West Chester is wonderful in many ways. The cool to cold air is a welcome change to many, and we get some gorgeous snowfall around here. But the season presents some unique challenges, too—many of which have some pretty nasty repercussions. Is your home prepared to take on the worst winter has to give? If not, the team at Signature HVAC is here to help!

Winter Safety Tips for Homeowners

Some of the risks of a cold season are fairly evident, like burst pipes or actually staying warm enough. But others can be unseen or hard to put your finger on. At Signature HVAC, we want to ensure you’re ready for it all, so let’s go over some of the less discussed issues today:

  • Home air quality challenges. Many folks only really worry about air quality in the spring, when allergens and pollen are usually at their highest. But in winter, air quality is actually a really, really big deal, and is the cause for many of your illnesses and maladies! Look into some IAQ products, services, and solutions to help keep the air in your home pure, clean, and easy to breathe.
  • Dirty air ducts. Did you know that mold spore is extremely common in outdoor and indoor air? Much of the time, you breathe minute amounts of it with little to no worry. But that spore can get into your ducts, where it’s dark and dank—and there it will take hold, resulting in a mold infestation that can complicate health and even result in serious home damage. To remedy this, make use of air filtration systems and look into getting yourself a duct cleaning service.
  • Debris ridden furnace. A dirty, dusty furnace is a fire just waiting to happen. Be sure you’re doing a good job of dusting it off carefully on a weekly basis to remove the risk, and be sure to never leave combustible materials (chemicals, cloth, etc.) anywhere within five feet of your furnace or heat pump.
  • Inoperable fire and smoke alarms. You’re going to be having a big, heavy machine piping dry, hot air into your home for a stretch of months. Normally this is a totally safe thing, but there’s a reason they’re called accidents. Be sure to check your fire and smoke detectors every month at a minimum, and if you don’t have any fire alarms, shame on you.
  • Irregular HVAC inspections. Maintenance keeps your heating costs low and your comfort high. But it also plays a very serious role in the safety of your HVAC system, too. Ensuring all parts are in order, electrical connections are secure, and that your system doesn’t have any up and coming risks is the ideal way to ensure you get quality, safe heating all winter long.

"I highly recommend Signature for HVAC service. The entires experience with Signature has been exceptional. The process was very customer focused starting from Scott McHale's engagement to organize the project to replace our old A/C, to an professional job John & Matt had done in installation, and Bob Seeger'r post installation service to troubleshoot the air flow damper, great job."

"Bob Seeger was our technician this time around. His level of professionalism was exceptional - it really stood out! Overall we are very happy that we switched to Signature several years ago!"

-Mark Kenney

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."

-Mark Kenney

"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."

-Debbie Kaba

"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."

-William Stolting

"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."

-John Schmitt

"Bob did an excellent job. He showed up on time, was courteous, and respectful. I recommend using Bob S from Signature Heating and Air-conditioning."

-Dennis Carlson

"Great service as always. Always prompt and knowledgeable."

-Adam Lusk

"Bob was very professional and informative on the heating & air condition job at my house. He is a very nice and caring person! Thank you!"

-Colleen Esgro

"Your whole team is outstanding."

-John price

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."

-Susan Wentz

"Thanks again for walking me through the process and pointing out what was going on in my system. Mold be gone! Professional and friendly service. Thanks for your help."

-Mia Bosna

"Travis is another courteous, fine professional working for you!"

-John price

-Ric DeAngelis

"We are very pleased with Signature and their very knowledgeable Technicians. We will be continuing our By-Annual service/tune-up with them...."

-Ric DeAngelis

"I have used Signature for about 10 years now. They provide excellent service. Bob Seeger was my most recent technician and he was on time, polite, informative, and technically proficient. I highly recommend signature for your HVAC needs. I have geothermal, and they are excellent at this technology."

-Charlie Phillips

"Mike B came out for the biannual check of the upstairs system--we had replaced the downstairs system in June---we are very satisfied. Mike was thorough, very professional, answered all my (sometimes inane) questions and kept the house clean. Good job Mike and thanks."
