By Air-Master Heating & Air Conditioning
As the temperatures drop in Bedford, we are slowly waving goodbye to air conditioning season. Before the heating season is in full swing, it is important to properly prepare your heating system. Fall maintenance is essential to ensure your heating system is working properly the moment you need it. In this blog, we will discuss the importance of fall maintenance and the benefits it provides.
What Is Fall Maintenance?
Heating maintenance is a preventative service to ensure efficiency and effectiveness. You may have an underlying heating problem that is costing you more money and could result in an uncomfortable breakdown. Air-Master technicians can provide a thorough inspection and perform needed repairs. A few things your technician will perform include:
- Confirm electrical connections
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Inspect vent system
- Remove any debris
- Clean/change air filter
Depending on what type of heating system will determine other procedures followed.
Why Is Fall Maintenance Important?
Picture this: Your home has started to become too cool for comfort, and you decide to turn on your heating system. However, your heater is either blowing cool air or won’t turn on. Your home comfort is sacrificed while you wait on an Air-Master technician to arrive and diagnose the problem. Heating maintenance can avoid this problem and catch issues before they become bigger, costly ones.
Benefits Of Heating Maintenance
Preventative maintenance can provide many advantages for you, your home, and heating system. Below are 5 advantages to regularly scheduling maintenance.
- Fewer Repairs
- Lower Utility Bills
- Extended Lifespan
- Increased Comfort
- Peace Of Mind
Experiencing heating repairs and breakdowns throughout the cold winters can be frustrating. Preventative maintenance can ensure your system is well prepared for the winter season ahead, which results in fewer unpredicted repairs.
Lower Utility Bills
If your heating system is operating with a malfunction or broken part, it uses more energy to heat your home. An example would be if your air filter is clogged, your system struggles to push air through the pores and uses more energy. More energy used can drive up utility bills and cost you more money each month.
Your heating system is an important appliance in your home and should last for many years. Units operating with broken parts can cause wear and tear, which shortens lifespan. Scheduling regular maintenance can help catch problems before they arise and ensure all parts can move freely. The less strain on your unit, the better!
Without preventative maintenance, your unit may struggle to meet heating demands. Obstructions such as airflow can reduce heat produced and sacrifice comfort. To ensure your comfort remains, have an Air-Master technician thoroughly inspect your heating unit this fall.
Peace Of Mind
The winter season brings many special occasions such as holidays and family gatherings. Preventative maintenance can ensure your heating system will provide whole home comfort during winter activities. Heating maintenance makes a reliable unit to keep you warm and cost all winter.
When Should I Schedule Heating Maintenance?
Your heating system should be inspected by a professional once a year. The best time to schedule heating maintenance is the fall season, because it prepares it for the upcoming winter temperatures. Your heating unit works all season long to provide whole home comfort and should be functioning properly in the beginning. Additionally, fall temperatures are typically comfortable in Bedford.
