Why Maintenance Is Important
Maintenance is a full tune-up for your HVAC system. During a routine maintenance appointment, your entire system undergoes a thorough inspection, cleaning and adjusting, and all moving parts are lubricated. If there are small issues, such as frayed wiring or a worn fan belt, these items are attended to during the appointment. Professional maintenance helps prevent repairs, increases energy efficiency, and extends the life of your equipment, which is why it’s important to schedule maintenance before the winter comes.
Other Ways to Prepare Your System
Here are some other ways to prepare your HVAC system for the coming heating season:
- Change the filter – it is recommended that you change the filter on your HVAC system every 3 months. A clogged air filter can lead to a decrease in airflow, which can put strain on your system.
- Check your thermostat – is your thermostat accurate? Are you using an old one? Having a precise, functional thermostat can go a long way toward increasing energy efficiency, so if yours is outdated, you may want to consider an upgrade.
- Have your ductwork cleaned – dirty ducts can impact the air flow in your system as well as your indoor air quality. Cleaning your ductwork before winter arrives opens up the airways and helps reduce the amount of contaminants that can circulate around your home.
Taking the time to prepare your HVAC system with a heating maintenance appointment can go a long way toward ensuring a comfortable, efficient winter for you and your system.
