The Maynard Man
here! Nighttime temperatures have already begun to drop a bit and with the
official start of fall here, it’s time for homeowners to turn their attention
from their cooling efforts to getting their heaters prepped for winter.
What does this mean?
It means ensuring that your heater is well maintained! Why does this matter? Because
of your safety. This is especially true with a gas-powered heater. Over the
years, your heater accumulates wear and tear, and without routine maintenance
this means the heat exchangers can accumulate damage, leaving you with cracked
A cracked heat
exchanger will allow dangerous gasses—namely, carbon monoxide—to leak out and
into your living space. This is a hazardous and harmful substance that can make
homeowners very ill and can even be fatal in large amounts. Safety isn’t the
only reason you should invest in annual heating maintenance, though! Read on to
learn all the ways you’ll benefit.

The Maynard Man here, with some helpful advice to protect your home from the wet weather we’re all too familiar with around here. If you’re lucky, you’ve never been in a position that flooding has ruined your home, and hopefully you never will be with quality Nashville sump pump services.
Sump pumps are quite common around our parts, not to mention
necessary! The climate change we experience in the fall and winter means lots
of rain—rainwater that can potentially send water gushing into your home, fast.
If you already have a sump pump, is it prepared? You can make sure it is by
following these tips, straight from the Maynard Man!

The Maynard Man knows that your air conditioner is no small investment. So you want to make sure it lasts for as long as possible and works as efficiently as possible throughout its lifespan.
This isn’t possible though, if you have a refrigerant leak. If your air conditioner is over 10 years old, it’s very likely it uses an outdated type of refrigerant—R-22. What’s wrong with this?

It’s true, you may still be using your air conditioner for
another month or so, but The Maynard Man likes to make sure our customers are
With the official end of summer a handful of weeks away,
temperatures will begin to cool and it will soon be time to breathe a sigh of
relief, open those windows, and enjoy the breeze until winter comes.
Before that happens, we want to make sure you’re not neglecting any central AC services in Nashville that could lead to a malfunctioning cooling system next year. What can you do to weatherize your AC?

Have you ever walked into your home after being gone all
day, only to suddenly have your allergy and asthma symptoms flare up?
Or maybe you have a healthy member of your family who seems
to be getting sick more and more often. What’s causing this, and what can you
do about it?
The Maynard Man has an answer for you! Your indoor air
quality can actually be worse that the quality of the air outdoors, without the
right products in place or without the right services. One of these services is
a thorough duct cleaning, once every few years.

If you’re not already concerned about the presence of
biological contaminants in your indoor air, you should be! At least, you should
be if you don’t have the right indoor air quality products in place.
The Maynard Man is here to share with you one very important
home comfort device that we can easily install right into your HVAC ductwork to
clean the air as it passes through, using nothing more than UV radiation! This
device is called the APCO UV light.

The Maynard Man loves summer, but there are certainly some aspects that aren’t so fun, right? A muggy climate, sunburns, fried electronics—wait, what’s that last one?
While you’re apt to crank your thermostat down as low as it
will go to achieve optimal comfort, that excess strain on your home’s
electrical system can cause a power surge that impacts all the electrical
appliances and equipment in your living space. This causes irreparable damage,
and it’s not the only potential cause of a power surge—more on that below.

There’s no wrong reason to add a whole-house water
filtration system to your home. Some people get one to improve the taste of
their water, while others choose a system to eliminate health concerns—like the
effects of contaminated water on someone with a weakened immune system!
The Maynard Man can’t very well say we’re the “Clean Water
Expert” if we didn’t give you all the facts.
