Service for the Honeywell Generator We Installed

December 24th, 2018

home-generatorWe’re proud to call ourselves “The Doctor of Home Comfort” for the area. Part of maintaining comfort for local homeowners now involves installing excellent whole-house generators from Honeywell. (We also install them for commercial buildings.) With a Honeywell Generator in Shreveport, LA for your house, you’re protected against a sudden power loss that would otherwise drop your house into the dark—and could mean serious trouble during extreme weather conditions because it would shut down your HVAC system as well. Honeywell Generators come in a wide range of sizes and capabilities, and they turn on automatically in case of a power loss—so you’re protected even if you aren’t home.

However, a generator is only useful for a house if it turns on when it needs to. If you can’t trust your generator—then it’s not much good! The whole point is to remove your worries about what happens if there’s an extended power blackout.

autumn-backgroundThe Halloween Season is when we can expect the crisper, cooler weather to arrive. But there’s no guarantee we’ll experience this break from the heat all month long. The hot weather can linger far into the fall, so we can’t stress enough that you must keep a watch on your AC system during this period so you won’t end up with an emergency.

Air conditioner burn-out

We’ve addressed this is another recent post, but an air conditioner is at higher risk of failure at the end of the season. August is probably the worst time for this because the system is still running on an almost daily basis. But the stress and strain from all those months of operation are still around in October, so a hot day can end up pushing the system over the edge so it fails. There are times when this can happen without warning, but they’re rare. Usually, an air conditioner approaching a critical failure will show signs:
