As the summer comes to an end and you begin to notice that early morning nip in the air, you will want to be sure that your HVAC system is ready for the switch from hot to cool and ready to perform as efficiently as possible.
The process of creating and maintaining your home temperature at your preferred thermostat setting is actually a delicate balancing act between equipment, air flow, and mechanics. Proper HVAC maintenance can help maintain this balance despite the constant demands placed upon it throughout the long hot summer months.
Seasonal preventive maintenance of your heating and cooling system can help guard guard against unexpected failures and could maximize the life cycle of your unit.
Preseason inspections look for leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires or corroded electrical contacts on your HVAC unit that can lead to bigger equipment failures if left untreated.
Proper maintenance may also keep your system running at peak performance levels and studies have shown that effective maintenance can reduce HVAC energy costs.
Now is the time to consider scheduling a seasonal HVAC check-up, before temperatures drop and demand increases.
