September Is a Good Time to Arrange for Fall HVAC Maintenance
Although the official end of summer and start of fall doesn’t occur until the end of September, people are used to thinking of this as the first month of the new season. Temperatures will still hover around summer levels, but it’s the time of the year when homeowners start preparing for the cooler weather around the corner… and the colder weather after that.
Schedule Fall HVAC Maintenance Early
For your heating and air conditioning system to work at its best, it must have biannual maintenance visits from HVAC professionals. The spring visit takes care of the air conditioner, and the fall visit takes care of the heater. It’s best to arrange for the fall maintenance as early in the season as possible, since this will make it easier to find a convenient appointment. (HVAC technicians will find it much easier as well, since they have fewer emergency calls to deal with as the summer heat fades.) Taking care of heating maintenance early in the fall also makes sure that you aren’t caught off-guard by a sudden cold snap: you’ll know your heating system is ready to go whenever you first need.
What Fall HVAC Maintenance Does
During a maintenance visit, a skilled technician provides the heater and ventilation system with a thorough inspection. This will locate any malfunctions that must be repaired before the heater gets back to work, and it will also identify spots that require adjustments, tightenings, and cleanings. When the HVAC technician finishes the job, the heater will be in the best possible shape for the coming winter and have large amounts of stress and strain removed from it. This means:
- Improved energy efficiency
- Extended equipment life
- Fewer repair needs
- Protection from sudden breakdowns
- A safer system
