  1. Make sure there are no drafty doors or windows. Drafts mean that the cooler air that comes with the fall season can make its way inside your home – and heated air can make its way outside. This can cause your heating system to have to work harder to keep your home warm – and that means a greater expense when it comes time to pay the utility bills.
  2. Check your home’s insulation. If you lack proper insulation in your home, it means that your heating system has to work overtime. The right amount of insulation helps keep the heat inside during the cooler months, as well as the cooled air in during the summer – and that can help you save on your energy bills year-round!
  3. Clear out your rain gutters. During the summer months, rain gutters can collect all sorts of debris and organic matter, like pine needles, leaves, pollen and even insects. That buildup means the water can’t flow properly off your roof, and icy buildup or leaks can become concerns.
  4. Test your home safety devices. Make sure your carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms have fresh batteries, and are working properly. If not, replace them right away. Once you start using your fireplace and heating equipment, having safety devices in good working order is crucial. You should also check fire extinguishers, to be sure they haven’t expired. (Yes, they do expire!)
  5. Prepare your air conditioning system for the cooler months ahead. When it’s time to change over from cooling to heating in your home, you’ll want to get your AC system tucked in for its seasonal rest. Clean any debris that may have collected around it over the summer, and invest in an air conditioner cover to keep your system safe from the elements the cold weather can bring.
  6. Consider installing a smart or programmable thermostat. Today there are thermostats available that are easily controlled from your phone and can even “learn” your habits. Even a basic programmable thermostat, though, can help you more easily control the temperature in your home – ultimately helping you save on your fuel and electricity costs.
  7. Call BC Express to schedule your fall heating maintenance. One of the best things you can do for your home’s heating system is get annual maintenance, and the autumn season is the best time to do it. Fall maintenance will help ensure your heating system is operating effectively and efficiently – so you can rest assured you’ll be comfortable once the cooler weather hits.

Professional and Pressure Free

"I replaced my 20 year old HVC, Furnace and Water heater and I could not have chosen a better company to perform such a job. I had met Doug a year earlier when he came to my home for estimates. The more I met with folks from other companies, the more I liked Doug and BC Express. He was thorough, professional and “pressure-free”.

Needless to say the crew that performed the job was outstanding. Sam and Dave did a great job and left the work are area very tidy. The job itself looks so nice and impressive. The post-work communication about service expectations and follow-up schedule left me with a warm feeling. I highly recommend this company."

Seamless Process from Start to Finish

"Our Experience with BC Express was excellent from start to finish. Doug gave us very fair estimate that far exceeded the other quotes that we had received for a new air conditioning system including all new ductwork. The technicians arrived on time. Brian and Sam were very efficient, professional, helpful, knowledgeable and left the house (inside and outside) as clean as when they arrived. Brian educated us on the new thermostat.

I would definitely recommend BC Express! They were the best and made the process seamless from start to finish!"

Quick, Efficient and Professional

"This is one great company. I recently had my outside a/c unit failed. I called them on a Friday before Labor Day weekend around 3:00 pm and they had someone out before 5:00 pm to check it out. He was able to find the problem and gave me three options. On Tuesday I let them know which option I wanted and by Wednesday afternoon my new unit was in place and working. The team was quick, efficient and professional. I’ve used this company for over 15 years, and they are the best."
