As the seasons start to change, now is an ideal time to have the entire HVAC system inspected in your home. You will want to contact us to schedule a fall inspection. Preventative maintenance will help reduce the chance of a larger issue occurring, when you need to rely on the unit. We will check all the parts and components of the system to make sure they are working correctly. If there is an issue, it is always best to catch it at the first sign, before the problem gets worse. Also, if the issue is fixed soon enough, it saves you time and money in the long run.
We can check the furnace system before you will need to turn it on. This helps to make sure everything will be ready to go, and you can just flip the switch once you want to have warmer air in your home. We can check the ductwork for any issues. This can include cracks, punctures, or even debris in it. Having the ductwork in ideal condition will save you money. If there is damage to it, the warm air that is produced, can leak through any holes or cracks. This will lead to your monthly energy bill increasing. We can also check the filter, to ensure it is clean. Based on the recommended schedule, you will need to change the filter, to ensure that the air movement is the best it can be.
Remember the Thermostat
The thermostat in your home should also be inspected. If you are looking to purchase a new one, consider a programmable one. This allows you to set the temperature based on the days of the week, and hours of the day. If your schedule is pretty consistent, you will benefit from these thermostats. They allow you to adjust the time frame of when you want the home to have the ideal air temperature. This allows the system not to run as much when you are gone. In the end, you will save money because it is not operating as much as it used to.
