5… 4… 3… 2… 1… Happy New Year! The ball has dropped, the champagne popped and your calendar has been swapped. And if you’re like 40 – 50% of Americans, you have made resolutions for the new year to improve your life.

Lose weight, get in shape, quit those bad habits… While your sights are set on New Year, New You, we’re willing to bet that your HVAC system is one of the last things on your mind as 2020 begins.

That’s ok.

At Badger Bob’s, we want you to be healthy and happy in the new year. We also want to encourage you to add just one more resolution to your list of betterment – for your home’s sake. Think of your HVAC.

While the weather may be a little cooler now in the winter months, those sweltering days of summer are just around the corner. Then, every day for six to eight months, your A/C system will labor to keep your home comfortable.


You can help.

In the spirit of New Year’s Eve, here is a countdown for 5 ways you can resolve to be better to your air conditioner this year and optimize your home comfort:

5. Get with the program.

If you don’t already have a programmable thermostat, consider investing in one. This technology puts you in full control over your home’s temperature. You’ll be able to set it so that you only use your A/C when you’re home and reduce your use while you’re out of the house. This will mean less used energy, which means lower bills. Installation is relatively easy, as the wiring is the same as for regular thermostats.

4. Learn the signs.

The quicker you can recognize signs that your HVAC system needs repairs, the sooner you can get the system repaired and restore your home comfort efficiency. Do a little research on the most common indicators for a failing air conditioner – you can reference those here. If you see the signs, contact us. Your comfort is just a call away!

3. Keep trim.

With spring comes growth… of bushes, shrubs, branches, tall grass and any other foliage that may be sprouting near your outside A/C unit. You want to keep a two-foot clearing around your air conditioner. This keeps the system free of blockages and also allows for a clear path for your HVAC technician when he or she needs to tune-up or repair the system.

2. Filter fresh.

Checking and replacing the air filter is something that every homeowner should do to maintain efficiency and keep their system running smoothly. A clogged filter can negatively impact your indoor air quality, restrict airflow within your home, increase energy costs, and cause unnecessary wear and tear to your system. On average, your HVAC filter should be changed every three months. If you smoke or have pets, however, it should be changed more often.

1. Maintenance time.

No matter how old your HVAC system is, an annual maintenance check-up can keep it running smoothly and extend its lifespan. Do yourself (and your unit) a favor and have our HVAC service contractors take care of it. During the maintenance visit, your technician will make sure your system is clean and lubricated while also checking for any repair needs.

There is no better repair shop in town than Badger Bobs. For ten years they’ve taken care of our AC and Appliances, along with those of friends and clients. Always friendly, on time, well priced and efficient. They really treat you like family and are a wonderful member of the community so you’ll see them around town and they always have a smile on their face and are ready to greet you with a big hello!

Caren L.

Great service and really liked the email with the service persons picture and recent background check. Doesn’t get much better than that. He was very nice knowledgeable and on point. Well done all the way around!

David H.

Rob is a great technician and a wonderful ambassador for Badger Bob’s. He is fast, efficient, exceptional in his diagnosing and he’s a fine individual. We had a situation where he could have easily “boosted” the bill and we would never have known but his ethics and honesty kept him from it. I am now a loyal fan and would not consider any other appliance company.

Lyssa M.

I recommend this company highly. Exceptional communication. Very professional, with a personal touch. Work was done fast, I was notified continuously, I couldn’t have asked for better treatment!

Laura T.

Great business and professionalism. Called prior to arrival which helped die to my work schedule. After having my AC shutoff for 2 days and another company didn’t do anything for me other than tell me i needed new coils. Badger Bobs came in re-gassed my AC (with coolant) and then came back to check for leaks and none were found. Thank goodness for going to a second company!!
