“What Can I Do to Protect My Air Conditioner This Winter?”

Monday, October 19th, 2020

air-conditioner-covered-in-iceWith the official start of fall behind us, temperatures are beginning to cool down now. Chances are, you’re using your air conditioning system less and less.

Hopefully that also means you’ve taken the opportunity to schedule your heater maintenance, ensuring that your furnace, heat pump, or boiler is prepared to operate safely and effectively this coming winter. But before we get there, we don’t want you to just completely forget about your air conditioner. While it may not need maintenance again until next spring—assuming you had maintenance done last spring, that is—your cooling system does need some attention before winter hits.

AC Compressor Failure: Repair or Replacement?

Ride and Decide

Thursday, May 2nd, 2019

Our team here at Canella Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is pleased to announce our latest partnership with the Construction Careers Academy at Catawba Valley Community College!

What does this mean?

This means that we will be participating in the Construction Scholars Ride and Decide Program! This summer program provides high school students ages 16-18 with the knowledge and skills to develop an exciting new career in construction. This is obviously a great choice! (Though, we might be a little biased!)

The ultimate goal is for students to explore a career as a skilled craftsman, such as an electrician, carpenter, plumber, and HVAC technician.

Our team is excited to see what these young students have to offer and we are beyond pleased to have bright new minds entering the field.
