Preventative Maintenance For Your Heating and Cooling System

During the cold January weather, a strong heating system is a must for your home or business. While many people wait for something to go wrong, it's best to have your HVAC system regularly maintained. Preventative maintenance keeps your heating and air conditioning equipment running as efficiently as possible. After all, heating and cooling maintenance isn't expensive compared to what you might need to spend if your system stops working.

Check out our preventative maintenance tips for your heating and cooling systems:

When to Service:
Your heating system runs endlessly in winter and your air conditioning unit works tirelessly in summer. To ensure your system is working properly, we recommend getting your HVAC cleaned and serviced twice a year – before summer and before winter. This will bring a circulation of fresh air before the busy seasons.

What to Check For:
Like most mechanical equipment, parts of your heating and cooling system need certain upkeep to work properly. When inspecting your air conditioning system, check the filters for dirt and soot. If a dirty filter is not cleaned or changed, your HVAC might run less efficiently. Some other important parts to inspect and replace include condenser coils, drive belts, electrical relays, contractors, lubricants and fluids.

Why Is Maintenance Important:
Maintenance in your HVAC system means improved performance, improved air quality, extended life and energy efficiency. Without regular maintenance, you would not find broken, worn, or dirty parts that have negative effect on air quality.
