All of us would love to be proactive at everything in our lives. Unfortunately, life is not always that simple. Most homeowners don’t understand the inner workings of every moving part in their home, such as the dishwasher, the garage door motor, and the plumbing/heating and air conditioning system. If we as homeowners understood every single aspect of mechanical equipment in our homes, then what a world we would be living in! And it would be great if pigs could fly.

In the world that we actually live in, there are parts of our homes that we as homeowners are not supposed to understand and which we have to trust someone else to handle, honestly and competently. We at Carolina Climate Control are your trusted plumbing, heating, and cooling service advisors. We have an approach to educating our clients so they can make informed purchasing decisions. We eat, breathe, and sleep home comfort, and we’re here for you and your family.

You have a central heating system in your house for a reason: to provide heat to all of the living space so your whole family stays warm. It’s much better than using a half dozen space heaters, right? Not to mention it’s much safer and energy efficient.
