As the temperature drops and you finally start to feel a chill in the air, your HVAC unit may be the last thing on your mind. But fall is not the time to neglect your HVAC system, as the parts that you neglect now are likely to cause the unit to fail at the times you need it the most. Catching these problems before they cause a larger issue down the line is well worth the cost of a maintenance call. There can be many advantages to having a seasonal HVAC checkup done by a professional, including:
Prevent a Winter Breakdown
If you hate cold weather, chances are you’ll be reaching for the thermostat as soon as temperatures drop for the first time this year. Finding out on one of these cold nights that your unit doesn’t provide you with warm air is not a pleasant situation. If you decide to call for an emergency repair, chances are you’ll have to pay much more than you would have for a routine maintenance check.
Scheduling a fall HVAC maintenance visit can help you avoid this unpleasant situation. During your tune-up, our experienced HVAC technicians will not only clean and lubricate your heating equipment but also look for any issues or repair needs. By identifying these issues early on, you can get the repairs you need before they result in a breakdown in the middle of winter.
Extend the Lifespan of Your HVAC Unit
Neglect is one of the biggest reasons that a homeowner’s HVAC system fails. As time goes by without monitoring, key parts of the unit can become damaged beyond repair. This can often lead to the homeowner needing to replace the unit instead of just a simple repair.
If you have one of our HVAC technicians, come out to inspect the unit regularly, you can stay on top of any issues and have small parts replaced before they start to impact the function of the whole unit. These small repairs are much more affordable than the cost of a full HVAC unit replacement. Not to mention, the HVAC technician can often complete the repairs during the same tune-up visit, which means that you don’t have to wait long to get comfortable.
Keep Your Unit Working at Full Capacity
If you’ve invested in a high-efficiency HVAC unit to reduce your power consumption and utility bills, you must work to properly maintain the unit if you want to get the full benefits of the system. Without proper maintenance by a professional, even the best HVAC units can fail to work effectively.
Clogs in the filtration can cause uneven airflow and irregular cooling, while more serious issues can reduce the overall power of the unit. Failure of one or multiple components can cause the unit to work overtime to compensate and drive your utility bills up higher than normal to produce the same amount of cold air. If you want to keep your unit working at full capacity, you need to schedule seasonal maintenance visits to ensure that it’s working smoothly.
