Changing with the Seasons
The cool, crisp days of autumn are fast approaching. As fall foliage paints colorful canvases across the landscape and the neighborhood kids play in leaf piles on the lawn, there are some lesser known facts about this time of year that make this season so unique.
First, did you know the first day of autumn is known as the autumnal equinox. On this day, the number of hours of daylight and darkness are equal. The only other equinox happens in March.
Second, contrary to popular belief, squirrels do not hibernate during winter. Rather, they spend most of their time in nests they build in the fall to protect them from severe weather. When they do come out in winter, it’s usually to tunnel under the snow to find food they buried during the fall.
Like squirrels, fall is the time to prepare your home for winter. This means having your HVAC equipment checked. Furnace manufacturers all recommend annual inspections and maintenance by qualified technicians. Warranties usually require inspections and maintenance to provide coverage.
At Holt Plumbing & Heating, our well-trained professional field personnel will not only check your furnace, filters, and hot water tank, but will inspect ductwork, blowers, and fans as well to be sure your system delivers maximum comfort to each room in your home.

The work was done on my rental property in metro Des Moines while I live halfway across the country in Georgia. Yet even over this great distance, you treated me as if I lived there in Iowa. The furnace passed away. You came out late at night to confirm this and left space heaters with the folks renting my house. Yes, even late in the evening you all did this. The work was done well, and I believe the money was well spent. I currently live two days drive away or one day flight away from Des Moines. Yet, I took care of this complete matter over the telephone. Complete with pictures of the final job. How about that?Thomas Leonard
