No matter the time of year, you need a reliable HVAC system. Performing preventive HVAC maintenance when the conditions are mild means that you don’t have to worry about your heating or cooling equipment failing you when you need it.
But when should you schedule it? A STAR Air Conditioning and Heating, your local heating and AC company, discusses more in today’s article.
Scheduling Preventive HVAC Maintenance
Here’s a look at when to schedule HVAC maintenance based on the equipment that you have:
Heating and Cooling Units – Schedule service appointments for your heating and cooling system twice a year—once in the spring and again in the fall. This will ensure your home remains cool during the summer months and warm over the winter.
Air Conditioning Units – AC repair and maintenance services should be scheduled in late winter or early spring.
Furnace Units – Schedule your heating equipment maintenance just once a year, either in the late summer or early fall.
Preparing for an HVAC Service Call
Before a certified HVAC technician visits your home for your scheduled maintenance, make sure to check both the outdoor and indoor units of your HVAC system. See to it that the outside of the main cabinet is clear of any dirt, leaves and debris. Also, clean or replace the air filters.
Perform a quick inspection of your heating or cooling unit, checking for any unusual odors or noises coming from the system upon starting. Be aware, however, not to tamper with its interior components, as doing so could void your warranty. Always ask the pros if you have questions.
