Winter Storm Warning: Guin Guard to the Rescue

W.C. Guin opened Guin Services in 1958. Since then, we’ve seen quite a few winters—64 of them to be exact. Over the course of six decades, our technicians have witnessed firsthand the catastrophes that winter weather has brought upon Alabama’s households. That’s why we created Guin Guard: to protect the greater Birmingham area from the perils winter brings upon your plumbing and HVAC systems. 

The Guin Guard program is straightforward, offering our customers routine HVAC and plumbing maintenance and repair. But the benefits are far more extensive than the program’s simple mission may suggest. Let’s take a closer look at the many ways in which Guin Guard protects you and your family from the perils of winter storms, warnings, and potential catastrophe. 

Winterizing Your HVAC & Plumbing Systems

More than regular maintenance and repair, Guin Guard brings customers peace of mind. We recently blogged about the importance of winterizing your plumbing and HVAC. We mentioned how modern life makes it difficult to fit these tasks into our busy schedules. Most of us don’t have both the time and the expertise to make absolutely certain that your plumbing and HVAC are prepared for winter. Guin Guard relieves you of this burden and ensures that you and your family remain safe and comfortable during the long cold months. 

Guin Guard makes winterizing your HVAC and plumbing systems simple. With Guin Guard, our technicians reach out to you to schedule timely winterizing maintenance appointments. More importantly, Guin Guard protects your home, should catastrophe strike. 

Guin Guard Winterizing: We Do It All

Winterizing your HVAC and plumbing systems is a big job. It requires time, expertise, and dedication. Without all three, your home’s HVAC and plumbing systems will be exposed to problems during harsh weather, from snow and ice to plain old cold winter nights. 

You’ve Got Your List—Now Check It Twice

At the very least, winterizing your plumbing and HVAC requires that you:

  • Shut off outdoor faucets
  • Locate your main water shutoff valve
  • Check the water supply lines
  • Insulate your pipes
  • Clean your furnace and boiler, and change the filter
  • Check and adjust your thermostat
  • Clean your HVAC vents
  • Maintenance the water heater
  • Inspect the entire home’s exterior for possible leaks/drafts
  • Maintenance and caulk damaged seals

Guin Guard guarantees that our technicians will check off all of the above, and more. 

The Guin Guard Guarantee

What if a pipe bursts while you’re at the beach? What if an ice storm drives your water heater into the ground? 

While winterizing your home’s plumbing and HVAC is the most important first step, you need a team of professionally trained technicians on hand for emergencies that can arise at any time during the colder months. 

Here at Guin, we offer everyone in our service area the Guin Guard Guarantee, which includes: 

  • Free diagnostic service calls 24/7/365

  • Clean drain line and/or pump

  • A comprehensive report of any services, repairs, or replacements needed

Guin’s technicians are the best in the business. Still, we’re humble enough to understand the power of mother nature.
