Flipping the Switch

There was a period where it felt as though this day wouldn’t come, but the time has finally arrived for you to flip the switch on your thermostat from heating to cooling. Before you set it and forget it, check out your warranty. Some warranties require regular service and maintenance in order to preserve the warranty. If you have any questions about your warranty, the experts at B & G HVAC will gladly help you.
