Winter weather means cold temperatures. You will want to make sure your home is warm and comfortable during all those months. The best way to help keep your home comfortable is to have the system inspected on a regular basis. With proper preventative maintenance, your HVAC system and furnace can work and operate efficiently. We can also help to remind you when regular maintenance should be done. Following the schedule will always keep the parts in the best condition. We will also be able to check each part and component, to ensure that there is not an issue.

Odd Noises

You should also be able to notice any odd noise or sounds from the system. These will indicate an issue with the system. It should be looked at as soon as possible to help prevent further damage and issues from occurring. This can also cause the chance for a costly repair bill as well. When an issue or odd noise occurs, if you ignore it, more parts can become damaged as well.

Change the Filter during Winter

The filter will need to be checked on a regular basis as well. This will help it run smoothly. With a filter, it will capture the dirt and dust in the air. By doing this, it will prevent the dirt from getting into the HVAC system and causing damage and strain. Remember to never run the HVAC system without a filter. The result can be extensive damage to several parts of the furnace. So make sure to only operate the furnace when a filter is in it.

You will also want to make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector. This is designed to go off and sound an alarm with any indication of carbon monoxide in your home. This will improve your safety as well for you and your family.

When you invest in an HVAC system, you will want to make sure all the parts and components are working correctly. The thermostat is one part you will want to make sure will work correctly when you need it to. There are several things that should be inspected. The unit itself, ductwork, the thermostat, and the filter. If you are in the market to buy a new thermostat, consider a programmable thermostat for your home. These can have several benefits for your home and savings in the long run.

Saving you Monedy

These can offer you monthly savings. This will add up to bigger savings in the long run as well. If you set the thermostat based on your schedule, you can help ensure it is only producing the desired temperature when you are home to enjoy it. If you are gone, the HVAC unit will operate on a regular basis, warming or cooling the air, and you will not be home. Based on which model you choose, you can set it differently. There can be a one for the week days to be different than the weekends. There is also another one where each day of the week can be set differently. This is ideal incase your schedule seems to always be different.

Other thermostat options

Even if you set the thermostat for certain days of the week or hours of the day, you can still change it. There is an override button that you can adjust the settings, while standing right in front of it. You can also choose a model that is compatible with wi-fi. This allows you to control it from your phone, tablet, or any other smart device you might have. By doing so, you can help ensure the temperature will be ideal by the time you arrive home, without wasting money either. Make sure to consult us about how a programmable thermostat can help your home and savings.

Preventative maintenance for your air conditioner is important. You will want to make sure you contact us so we can inspect it. If you are not sure how often the system should be tuned up, contact us. We can advise you on a regular schedule so your HVAC system is working efficiently. Annual preventative maintenance enables your system to use energy more efficiently. Keeping it maintained should include cleaning the cooling coils, blades, and other components. By having it clean, it helps generate cool air more efficiently. The system will use less energy when it cools the air in your home this summer.

Extending the System’s Life

Regular maintenance is important to help it operated efficiently. One of the main reasons a HVAC system will fail early is due to lack of maintenance. Maintain your system each year and your system will maintain your comfort for years to come.

Improves Air Quality

As the air conditioning system is used, dirt and debris collect inside of it, which can lead to issues. These can be released into the air inside your home, decreasing the quality of the indoor air. When routine maintenance is done, we can clean the dirt and debris so that the pollutants do not contaminate the indoor air.

Less Repairs

When you have your heating system and air conditioner regularly maintained, you reduce the chances that you will face a costly emergency repair in the future. We can check for damaged or worn parts and will notify you of any need for a part replacement. The part should be replaced to prevent further damage and avoid a possible emergency call. Also cleaning and maintenance will also extend the life of your compressor. The compressor is an important part of the system and can be a very costly repair if it is damaged. During the summer, dirt and dust can collect on the cleaning coils. Dirty cleaning coils cause the compressor to work harder with age. By having the coils cleaned during our inspection, you can reduce the demand on the compressor and avoid a major repair.
