Flipping the Switch There was some time where it seemed like this day wouldn’t come, but the day 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 team at Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. will happily help you. Service During the Off-Season Now is the perfect time to schedule your regular furnace service in Utica. Any problems can be addressed and solved before the time comes to turn your system back on once more for the season.

Change Your Filters We probably sound like a broken record, but switching out your air filters is one of the most simple and most essential things you can do for your HVAC system as a homeowner. A clean filter keeps your system functioning at peak efficiency, enhances your indoor air quality and works to extend the life of your HVAC system.
