Every Saturday from May 21 through October 22 the Overland Farmer’s Market comes to Overland, celebrating “going green” and the locavore movement with local produce, organic beef and fresh baked goods. This year Overland is also holding its first ever Mouse Race at the Overland Lions Hall, with raffles and games for all. During the winter, strong northwest winds prevail while during the summer the winds are primarily from the south, meaning that businesses and residents must have well-maintained heating and air conditioning systems. Overland’s air conditioing and heating needs are served by Air Comfort Service.
When you buy a home, you become responsible for the upkeep of everything in it. A good idea for all homeowners is to find a heating Overland company you are comfortable with and get to know. This way, you will be sent little reminders when your system needs cleaning or routine maintenance. You want them to come out and make sure everything is in good working order when you are not using the system. They will also clean it to improve its efficiency. Then, if something should happen during the cold winter months, you have a company and serviceman you trust. They will already know your system, so can get to the root of the problem. This will make things move much faster and save you money. When you trust your serviceman, you will not need to have a second opinion, you can just let him do what he needs to do.
If the system in your home has not been properly maintained by the previous owner, talk to your air conditioning Overland serviceman and ask if it would be more beneficial if you were to replace the system with a new, energy efficient ductless system. While it might cost you a bit of money for the unit in the beginning, over the life of the system you will save money. It is better to have something that you know will work and keep your utility bills at a reasonable amount. With a ductless system, you can have different areas in your home set up for different temperatures. This is great for a larger home that has areas or rooms that do not get much use. It is also a good way to keep your bedrooms cooler than the rest of the house. A converted rec room can be heated or cooled only when you are using it.
