Why Fall is a Great Time to Get Your HVAC Unit Inspected
Fall is a great time to schedule an inspection for your HVAC system. Your air conditioning has been running all summer, and it is likely that your heater hasn't turned on in months. As the mornings become cooler, your heater is going to start firing up, and you don't want any unexpected problems due to lack of maintenance. Before you are in need of heat, make sure that everything is properly running so that you don't end up with surprisingly cold air when all you want is to warm up. Below you can find three more reasons why fall is a great time to get your HVAC unit inspected.
Lower Utility Bills
Did you know a dirty or poorly functioning HVAC unit costs you more money to run than one that is clean and working properly? Dirty filters rob your HVAC system of proper air flow and can increase your monthly utility bill. HVAC systems which have not regularly been serviced may appear to be working fine, but they are likely working harder and thus wasting energy. Think of it like your car and how you change the oil and get tune-ups regularly to keep it running; your HVAC unit is no different, and it too needs to be maintained to run efficiently. Plus it will save you money by lowering your utility bills.
Uncover Hidden Issues
Just like you may not realize your HVAC unit is working harder than it needs to, you may not also know that there are other hidden issues. One common problem is with the pilot lights; they can be blown out, or they can cause a dangerous build up of fuel. Another problem that often goes unnoticed without inspection are gas leaks; not only are these dangerous, but they make your HVAC unit very inefficient. Uncover any hidden issues with your HVAC unit by having it inspected regularly.
Less Wait Time
Winter and summer are the busiest months for HVAC companies, and it can be difficult to schedule a service time as other homeowners are also in urgent need of air conditioning or heat. However, calling during the fall allows you to take advantage of the slower time and get on the schedule to have your system inspected before you need it. Instead of being the homeowner who is stressed and calling their HVAC company during the middle of a winter storm when their heat has gone out, you will be calm and warm inside your home with an efficient and running heating system.
