Don’t Forget to do These Things Before You Leave for Vacation

Heading out on vacation is an experience like none other. You have clocked out of work; you are ready to relax and unwind, forget about the “real world,” even if it is just for a few days or a week. There are many things that, before vacation, you do not want to forget about though. You need to take the necessary steps so that your HVAC Jacksonville FL system is ready for you to be gone for the week, as well as the rest of your household. There are plenty of things you do not want to forget to do before you leave for vacation and we will help reminder you of them now.

Pay off the Bills

Do you have a pile of bills that have stacked up over the past few weeks leading up to vacation? The last thing that you want to do is to head out on vacation without making sure that all of those necessary bills get paid. Spend an evening figuring out all of the bills, making the payments that you have to make.

If you are not ready to pay everything now, see if you can automatically schedule the payments so that the money comes out on certain dates. This can give you peace of mind knowing that you do not have bills that will be paid late because you are out of town.

Update the Mail and Calendar

Make sure that the post office knows that you are going to be on vacation for a period. They have the ability to put your mail on hold so that you do not have to worry about it. The post office will hold it, and when you return, you can just pick it up all in one shot.

Update that calendar of yours too, whether it is a personal calendar that you share with family members or the calendar that you have for work. If you are used to responding to work e-mails around the clock, make sure that you have the out of office message ready to go.

Call the Bank

You may also want to make a phone call to the bank and the credit card company that you are going to be relying on to help pay for your trip. When a bank sees a charge in a foreign city, what they may do is to put a freeze on the account, because they may think it is fraud. You want to call them ahead of time, so they know that you are traveling, saving your funds from being frozen on you.

Prepare the Home

Making the home and your HVAC Jacksonville FL system ready specifically is the next step. If it is the summer months, keep the air conditioning system going, but at a temperature just high enough that the house will remain comfortable. If it is the winter, make sure it is on so that nothing freezes should it get that cold in the middle of the night. You are also going to want to be sure that windows and doors are closed and locked tightly so that the home is secure from corner to corner.

There is a lot that you are going to want to remember as you prepare yourself to go on vacation. Taking care of the homestead before you head out is a good practice to execute. Make sure that the HVAC Jacksonville FL is set appropriately, bills are paid, and everything else is in order so you can enjoy the relaxing vacation you deserve.

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
