Winter Is Coming: You Should Prepare Your HVAC System Now

Just like a car, an HVAC system requires routine maintenance by a professional. Too often, though, it gets overlooked, and invariably, neglected systems perform poorly and waste energy. So, even though we're still in the warm lull of summer, winter is on the way and it's important to check and prepare your heating system now before the weather turns cold.

If you don't: You're paying more

If you don't prepare your heating system for the chilly nights ahead, it can cost you more to operate because dirty units use more electricity and fuel gas than their well-maintained counterparts.  Not only will they waste energy and drive up utility costs, but also dirty furnaces wear out faster, which then leads to costly repairs or even replacement. So, hire a professional HVAC company today to perform a top-to-bottom cleaning if you're tired of throwing money out the window. 

If you do: Your allergies will be better

Your HVAC system relies on the air in your home to work properly. If the filter on your furnace is dirty, it will just keep recirculating contaminants like pollen, dust, smoke, and pet dander throughtout your house.  But if it's changed routinely, ideally every 1-3 months, a clean filter will capture these allergens and can alleviate seasonal allergies and other breathing problems.  

If you don't: Your HVAC system won't last as long

If you don't take care of your heating and cooling system, it won't take care of you. Poorly maintained HVAC units are more prone to breakdown and will need more repairs down the line. If you hire an HVAC company to perform annual maintenance to remove all dirt, dust, and blockages, as well as check for leaks, replace filters, and make sure everything is working properly, then your HVAC unit will work better for longer. 

If you do: You'll be safe all winter

Not only will a neglected furnace eventually leave you out in the cold, it can also be a safety hazard!  A certified HVAC professional will closely examine your equipment to inspect for leaks and cracks to ensure that deadly carbon monoxide isn't being discharged into your home. 

It won't be long before you're calling on your furnace to warm things up inside, so don't wait until you need to flip the switch!  Contact a trusted, reliable HVAC service company now to give your system a thorough check-up.  As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
