Farmer's Almanac Predicts Chilly Winter:
"Shivery is not dead!"
"After one of the warmest winters on record, this coming winter will be much colder than normal from coast to coast, the almanac predicts."
"It'll be especially nippy on the northern Plains - up to 20 degrees below seasonal norms in much of Montana, the Dakotas and part of Wyoming"

Plan Now To Reduce this Winter's Energy Costs!
An annual tune-up can reduce your heating costs by five percent.
Additionally, without this yearly cleaning and inspection, your heating system can wear itself out quickly, pump deadly carbon monoxide into your home, or simply stop working on a frigid day.
During the annual tune-up, we will:
- Visually check heat exchanger
- Examine blower compartment
- Clean or replace filter (if supplied by customer)
- Clean and reset burners
- Clean and lubricate motor and fan
- Examine operation of fan and high limit controls
- Inspect gas pilot light system
- Examine and adjust drive system
- Test thermostat settings and furnace switch
- Examine chimney and clean out debris
Powerzoning will ensure your heating system is clean, safe, and efficient!
Q: When we turned on our high-efficieny furnace for the first time this winter, it smelled so bad we were worried it was carbon monoxide or something else was wrong. Is this normal?
A: The first time you turn on your furnace, an odor or smell is normal because dust collects on the heat exchanger over the summer, and turning it on for the first time simply burns the dust off. When turning on your furnace for the first time, leave the windows open to dispel the odor quickly. If the odor persists, you should schedule a maintenance appointment. Remember, carbon monoxide is odorless, so you could not smell it.
