Putting Homeowner Fears to Rest

homeowner fear

It’s natural for a homeowner to feel a twinge of anxiety when thinking about the major systems in their homes. After all, electric, HVAC and water heaters play fundamental roles in our everyday comfort and safety. But, what are the primary concerns associated with these systems, and how can they be best addressed? Let’s dive in.

Electrical Worries and The Davis Ford Assurance

Fear of Electrical Fires and Shocks

Every flicker of a light or spark from an outlet can send homeowners into panic mode. These are valid fears; electrical issues can lead to shocks or fires, turning a peaceful home into a hazardous environment.

High Electric Bills and Power Outages

No one enjoys the surprise of an inflated electric bill. Additionally, power outages, especially during inclement weather, can turn daily routines upside down. 

The Solution? Davis Ford Heating and Air Conditioning understands these fears. Our expert electricians ensure that every wire, circuit, and outlet in your home adheres to the highest safety standards. We ensure that not only is your home safe but also energy-efficient, putting a stop to those surprise utility bills.

HVAC: Your Comfort, Our Priority

Dreaded System Breakdowns 

Nothing is worse than an HVAC system giving out during a heatwave or a cold snap. That’s not just an inconvenience; it’s a genuine threat to your comfort.

Concerns about Air Quality 

Your home should be a haven, free from outside pollutants, allergens, and other airborne nasties. The last thing you want is for your HVAC system to become a conveyor belt for these irritants.

Davis Ford’s Approach: At Davis Ford, we emphasize regular HVAC maintenance to prevent unexpected system breakdowns. Moreover, with the care and attention to detail that David Ford invests in training every technician, you can rest assured that your HVAC system won’t just heat or cool your home; it’ll also play a pivotal role in ensuring the air you breathe is clean and healthy.

Water Heaters: No More Cold Surprises

Leaks, Bursts, and the Fear of the Unknown 

A malfunctioning water heater is more than an inconvenience; it can be a real danger, causing significant damage. Some of the dangers include:

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

If you have a gas water heater, one of the primary concerns is carbon monoxide (CO) leakage. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can be lethal when inhaled. A faulty water heater can release CO, leading to symptoms like dizziness, headaches, nausea, and even fatal poisoning.

  • Water Damage

A water heater that leaks can lead to significant water damage in your home. Even small, undetected leaks can damage flooring, walls, and possessions, and can lead to mold growth which poses additional health risks.

  • Burns and Scalding

If the thermostat on the water heater malfunctions, it can cause the water to become extremely hot. This can result in severe burns when someone uses the hot water.

  • Explosions and Fires

In rare cases, a malfunctioning water heater can explode, especially if the pressure relief valve (a safety device that releases excess pressure) fails to work properly. Gas water heaters with faulty gas lines or control mechanisms can also be a fire hazard.

  • Electrical Shocks

For electric water heaters, a malfunction can risk electrical shocks, especially if water comes into contact with exposed wires or electrical components.

  • Bacteria and Contamination

In some cases, particularly if the water heater isn’t heating water to a sufficient temperature, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria, including Legionella, which can cause a form of pneumonia known as Legionnaires’ disease.

Davis Ford to the Rescue: Our technicians are trained to handle any water heater issue, ensuring that you always have a consistent supply of hot water, without the fear of leaks, bursts, or inefficiencies skyrocketing your bills.
