Cooler Weather Will Be Here Before You Know It
Show your heating and cooling system some love this fall. Your furnace or heat pump worked hard last winter to keep your home warm and comfortable, so it deserves some TLC. Book HVAC repairs or maintenance now as air conditioning appointments are slowing down.
As the weather transitions, you are most likely to catch the appointment scheduler with the most flexibility. Schedule now before the first frosty morning and everyone else calls.
Estes Services offers emergency services 24/7, but waiting to schedule maintenance may result in unexpected and expensive HVAC repairs. Prepare your heating system now for the upcoming winter and save money and headaches when the temperatures plummet.
Avoid HVAC Repairs
While the temperatures may be milder this time of year, the weather can change unexpectedly. Your furnace or heat pump needs to be ready to handle whatever winter produces.
Here are a few things you can do to avoid HVAC repairs in the dead of winter:
- Install a programmable thermostat to control temperatures when you aren’t home. Your furnace or heat pump operates only when needed and reduces the amount of wear and tear on your equipment.
- Check your filter once a month and replace it if you notice excessive dirt or dust. A clean filter ensures your components and airflow are clear of debris. This prevents your heating system from operating harder than necessary to provide your home with warmth.
- Pay careful attention to strange noises whenever your furnace or heat pump starts up, turns off, and operates. Clanging, banging and screeching are common noises indicating a problem. If you notice any strange sounds, contact Estes Services immediately to avoid further damage to your heating system, or worse, an unsafe situation.
Maintenance Is Vital for Your Heating System
Avoiding HVAC repairs isn’t the only advantage to seasonal maintenance this fall. Your heating system operates better when it is kept clean. Excess dust, pet dander, pollen and other debris obstruct airflow and decrease efficiency.
An efficient furnace or heat pump will keep your home warm using less energy. Less energy means lower bills. Your heating system also shows fewer signs of wear and tear when you schedule maintenance regularly.
Scheduled maintenance on your heating system also prolongs its lifespan. This prevents you from purchasing a new furnace or heat pump before you’re ready financially. Frequent HVAC repairs and excessive wear and tear simply drain the life from your equipment.
Finally, part of seasonal maintenance replaces damaged components. Your heating system is less vulnerable to safety issues, such as electrical fires and carbon monoxide poisoning when it’s regularly maintained.
Seasonal maintenance ensures your furnace or heat pump is ready for the colder temperatures and prevents HVAC repairs when you least expect them.
