Protect Your Equipment: Make Time for Fall Maintenance

October 1, 2013

You trust your cooling and heating system to keep you comfortable year-round. But, just like your car, HVAC equipment runs best when it is properly maintained. To avoid unexpected breakdowns or energy inefficiency, schedule HVAC maintenance at least twice per year. With cooler temperatures around the corner, fall is one of the best times to inspect and clean your system.

Advantages of Regular HVAC Maintenance

Maintaining your Southwest Georgia heating and cooling system is an affordable investment that yields a number of benefits, including:

  • Reduced risk of equipment breakdown. There’s nothing worse than waking up to a morning chill caused by failure of your furnace or heat pump motor. During your maintenance visit, a qualified GA HVAC technician works to identify looming problems before they become inconvenient, after-hour repairs.
  • Energy & utility savings. Inefficient, poorly maintained HVAC systems suffer from inadequate performance, and they cost more to run. Routine maintenance helps appliances perform well using less energy—which means lower bills.
  • Equipment longevity. With proper care, your residential heating system could last years longer than a neglected system. HVAC technicians will also recommend ways to prolong equipment life, such as frequent filter changes and installation of programmable thermostats.
  • Potential savings on repairs and new equipment. A reputable heating and cooling contractor may offer maintenance programs that include reduced diagnostic fees, discounted repairs, and other incentives. Contact your Southwest Georgia HVAC company to inquire about annual membership plans.

What You Can Do

While it is best to have a trained HVAC professional evaluate your heat pump, furnace or hybrid system one to two times each year, there are steps you can take to maintain equipment between visits. Remember to change furnace filters every one to three months (depending on usage frequency), keep your outdoor HVAC equipment free of debris, leaves and branches, and utilize your programmable thermostat to manage system use when you are on vacation or away at work.
