Doing early maintenance for your furnace now will help you to save money in the long run. In fact, sometimes a discount is given because the furnace is not in an emergency situation. Before the rush of furnace maintenance is needed this fall and winter, it is always best to have it inspected now. That way incase parts or components have to be ordered, it will allow enough time to get here. If you need to switch the furnace on this winter quickly, rest assured that it is in the best condition.
As always, early maintenance also includes checking the filter for your HVAC system. The filter will capture any dust and dirt pollutants that are in the air of your home. As they get to the filter, they are captured in it. This will help prevent them from blowing through the ductwork and back into your home. Over time, the filter will become clogged with these allergens. Make sure that the filter is replaced when recommended so fresh clean air moves through. If you are not sure how often this should be, make sure to contact us and we can advise you on it.
Other parts of the HVAC system should be inspected now as well. Check the thermostat to ensure the actual temperature is the same as the set temperature. As they age, they will no longer be efficient at maintaining the temperature in your home. Also remember where they are placed also affects how they operate. If they are near a window or register, they may start to have a false reading for the HVAC system. We can inspect the thermostat to ensure it works properly. This will also help you to save money on monthly energy bills for your home. If you notice an increase, make sure to contact us as soon as you can.
