October 7, 2018
Snowbird-checklist

If you’re one of the lucky snowbirds who is heading south for the winter, there are a few things you need to do before leaving. When it comes to your furnace, air conditioner, and plumbing it’s important to take all the necessary steps to preventing problems at your main residence and reducing energy bills while you’re away. Download our Snowbird Checklist to help get you ready so you can enjoy the fun and sun without worry!

Turn Off the Water

Before you leave, remember to turn off the main water line to relieve pressure within your plumbing. If you do decide to do so, remember to also turn off your water heater as well.

Install a Wi-Fi Thermostat

Wi-Fi thermostats are perfect for snowbirds. These digital controls connect to your smartphone through an app, where you can monitor and control your home’s indoor temperature. This is great for snowstorms, below freezing temperatures or warmer winter days. You can ensure your home is prepared for anything that happens right from your smartphone!

Carbon Monoxide & Smoke Detectors

Before you leave for the winter remember to change the batteries in your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors to keep your home safe. If your detectors are more than two years old, we strongly recommend upgrading to digital ones. Similar to the Wi-Fi thermostats, these detectors are synced with your smartphone through an app, where you can monitor around the clock. These apps will notify you if it senses unsafe levels or smoke.

Joe, is one of the best servicemen that Jackson Comfort has. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly & courteous, listens to me, explains the details of what he is checking, and always does a thorough job. Today he did the annual check on my A/C system. I have full confidence that my unit is in top shape for the next year.

Wow great job overall. Very professional with a great system for contacting you with when the technician is arriving. Brian was fantastic quick and went over everything before he did it. Punctual, thorough and job was done perfectly. AC unit which I neglected was running like a new system and not pricey at all.

It was a pleasure having Matt service our equipment. He was on time and explained everything he did. He took care to protect our hardwood floors while he worked. Jackson Comfort has been taking care of our unit for over 15 years. Thank you to everyone at Jackson and especially Matt for such great service.

Been using Jackson for 10 years. Always on time, friendly and not pushy. They use modern technology to confirm appointments and send reminders (email and text). I also like that I received a color image of the service tech via text when he was en route to our home. That way I know it is actually him.
