Well, if you want to be technical about it, every month is potentially maintenance month, since it’s such a valuable service that doesn’t really have a timeline. But if you’re a fan of the seasons changing, then thinking about it this way might be easier for you and your calendar.
Every year around this time, homeowners begin switching from their cooling systems to their heating systems. We know that temperatures aren’t exactly low yet, but they will be and you’ll need to rely on powerful heating if you’re going to comfortably make it through the winter. However, this transition from cooling to heating can get bumpy, and maintenance is the perfect way to smooth the ride.
This September, whether you’ve got a heat pump that’s been working all summer, or a furnace that’s waiting on standby to be turned on, why not invest in HVAC maintenance? This service will go a long way in making your home more efficient and comfortable.
What Is Maintenance?
Maintenance is a service that we, and many other HVAC companies offer, that centers around adjusting, tuning up, and maintaining your HVAC technology. It might sound like a supplementary service that customers can invest in if they feel like it, but that’s a broad misconception that’s been circulating lately.
Maintenance is a necessary service for a few reasons.
Firstly, routine maintenance is going to be required if you have a warranty covering your air conditioning or heating system. This is usually listed in the fine print, but it’s essential that you keep that warranty for as long as possible.
Secondly, when you hear about a system’s lifespan (like a central air conditioner’s 10-15 year lifespan), this includes yearly maintenance. Air conditioning and heating systems actually last fewer years if they’re unmaintained, which is another way of saying that maintenance is required if you’d like to achieve the most potential from your system. HVAC technology is expensive, so the longer you go without needing to replace the system, the better!
How Maintenance Helps
Maintenance isn’t just necessary for the above-mentioned reasons, it’s also beneficial to you.
Maintenance includes adjustments where a licensed technician thoroughly inspects and adjusts the interior components of your system, letting you know if there are any problems that could get worse over time. They’ll lubricate ball bearings, tighten screws, and ensure that your system works as effectively and efficiently as possible.
This means that your air conditioner or heating system will work to the best of its ability and cost less to operate year after year. That’s a big deal when temperatures start getting too hot or too cold!
So, why are we talking about maintenance now?
Well, maintenance is a great idea to invest in during the spring or fall. During September, temperatures are relatively mild and our phone lines are open, which means we can schedule a maintenance appointment that’s convenient to you. Also, this is right before the heating season, so you’ve got time to address your heater’s needs. And don’t forget, if you’ve got a heat pump, it requires maintenance twice a year!
