Summer weather is on the way out, and cooler, crisp autumn air is on the way to Greenville, SC. It won’t be long before cold winter temperatures arrive, which is why now is an ideal time to schedule heating maintenance. There are many benefits to scheduling an annual HVAC maintenance visit sooner rather than later.
Scheduling HVAC maintenance now allows you to beat the rush for appointments. You’ll be able to choose a time that meets your needs. If any issues are detected, there’s still plenty of time to arrange repairs. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your heating system is ready for that first cold autumn or winter night.
A well-maintained heating system operates more efficiently than one that’s neglected. Operating your heating system with a dirty air filter decreases its efficiency by at least 15%, explains the Department of Energy. The dirty air filter allows more particles to get into your home’s air. Our maintenance services include filter changes and other tasks that improve HVAC efficiency.
Many things can go wrong with heating systems, and HVAC maintenance is designed to identify potential problems. During a heating maintenance visit, our technicians test for the presence of carbon monoxide. In gas-powered heating systems, we inspect the flue, burner, sensors, flame, heat exchanger and combustion chamber. For heat pumps, we check the wiring, control panel, contactors and other key components for wear and damage.
The last thing you’ll want to wake up to this winter is a broken heating system. According to the Indoor Air Quality Association, HVAC maintenance could prevent up to 95% of heating system malfunctions. By scheduling heating maintenance now, you’ll avoid disruptions to your comfort and potentially costly repairs later this winter.
