Changing of seasons seems to happen overnight in Western New York. One minute it is 80 degrees and sunny skies, the next it’s a crisp 60 degrees and the sun sets after dinner. Nevertheless, Fall is always an exciting season here with plenty to look forward to – football is back, no more hot and sticky days, and the leaves start to change colors. However, Western New Yorkers also know that Fall weather feels nice for a few weeks and then all of the sudden…it’s snowing again.
In order to prepare for this quick transition, it is critical you get your furnace tune-up done as soon as possible. Doing so will guarantee your home is ready for when the unexpected arrival of cold snowy days hits us.
