About the Climate of Westerville
Folks in Westerville must contend with enormous fluctuations in the weather, which can pose problems for plumbing and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Rain falls about 136 days annually here, compounding the problem of mildew, mold, and water damage. Heat is another issue, with temperatures approaching more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit in July, adding to the burden on your air conditioner. The high humidity during summer makes AC systems struggle even more to keep up with the cooling Westerville residents require. Moreover, because the temperature plunges to less than freezing 106 days annually, you can expect your furnace to work extra hard, adding to the wear and tear.
DIY Repairs and Considerations
If you’re considering the do-it-yourself route to repairing your plumbing or HVAC system, remember that complicated systems should only receive service from qualified experts. Doing repairs yourself can make the problem much worse and more expensive for professionals. You could even break equipment to the point it needs replacement.
Safety and property damage issues also arise with DIY projects, so call CWA for professional guidance and assistance. Doing so helps prolong the useful service life of your systems.
