You wake up in the middle of a cold winter’s night freezing even though you are under the covers. You get up and check the furnace to only learn that it is not working. Another scenario is that you come home from work on a hot summer’s day and cannot wait to get into that cool air conditioning, but when you walk in your home is over 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Both of these situations can actually be avoided by maintaining your heat and air units.
There are a few things you can do on your own to ensure the units are working properly such as cleaning the units, ensuring that there is no debris in or around the units and looking for worn wiring. On the other hand, if you are not a professional, you may not know exactly what to look at to ensure that unit is working properly. There are all kinds of things that can go wrong with both heat and air units from broken switches to bent fans and even clogged pipes.
The best thing to do to ensure that you never go without heat or air when you really need it is to have your units checked by a professional at least twice per year. The cost of tunes up is quite a bit cheaper when you compare this cost to repair a unit that could have been prevented with the proper care.
It would be in your best interest to find a reliable and trustworthy company that also provides emergency services so you can use the same company for all your heat and air needs. When looking for a professional always ask for references and follow up with the references. Ask questions about cost for tune ups, checkups, and emergency services. When you find the best company to fit your needs, ensure you keep their number handy and schedule tune ups for both units in the Spring and Autumn. This way the air will be ready for the hot summer days and the heat will be ready go for winter.
Never make the mistake of ignoring sounds coming from the units or other signals such as one room cooler or warmer than another. These can be signs that your system has a problem. Finding problems early can actually save you money in the long run instead of having to replace the entire unit.
