If you are the type of person that waits until your HVAC system has problems before you call in a professional, you are not alone. Many people ignore their air conditioning unit or furnace until it starts working incorrectly, but this can leave you without heat or air when you need it most. With winter around the corner, now is the time to perform preventive maintenance on your furnace.
Like most mechanical and electrical equipment, furnaces perform better when they are maintained. Just like your vehicle needs oil changes and tune-ups to prevent problems, your furnace can benefit from its own tune-up. The idea is to perform routine preventive maintenance like changing filters and lubricating parts before the furnace is used for the season. A thorough inspection can also catch needed repairs versus waiting for the furnace to break down in the middle of winter.
Furnace Tune-Up and System Analysis
A thorough furnace or heat pump tune-up should be performed annually to keep your heating system working efficiently. By changing the filters and performing the needed maintenance, you can achieve the highest level of efficiency from your system. This can prevent unnecessary breakdowns on the coldest days of the year and save you money on your energy bills.
During your tune-up, our maintenance team can also perform a system analysis. Our technicians can carefully inspect your entire HVAC system and check the efficiency. This can be beneficial to determine where your HVAC system lands for energy efficiency and longevity. If your system is over 10 years old, it may be functioning with less efficiency and it may be time to start planning for your next HVAC installation. The analysis can identify areas that are working well and what may need to be repaired or replaced within your system.
