During the month of October, temperatures can feel finicky, fluctuating back-and-forth between too cool and too warm. While the winter season allows homeowners to use alternative means of cooling, such as opening windows throughout the home or temporarily turning down units, the time will come when the winter chill of the holiday months will require the heat of your residential HVAC system to keep your home feeling comfortable and warm.
The Importance of Preventative Maintenance to HVAC Winterization
Preventative maintenance, conducted twice a year, will help support your system as it works harder to keep up with the performance demands of seasonal temperature variations. By ensuring your residential HVAC system is kept in good working order, you can improve the overall efficiency of your HVAC system and help prevent costly emergency repairs – no one likes to be without heat in the middle of a winter!
However, while most newer heating systems may seem to require little maintenance throughout the year, a simple tune-up and inspection may significantly extend the life of your residential HVAC equipment.
As always, preventative maintenance and HVAC winterization for your home’s heating and cooling systems should be performed by a certified HVAC professional.
Winterizing Your Residential HVAC System
If your technician notices any unusual noises, excessive wetness, or other symptoms that your unit is not performing properly during the course of your scheduled HVAC maintenance check, he or she will advise you on any repairs or adjustments necessary to get your system back up and running as it should.
In addition to performing routine pre-season maintenance, your technician will run a range of diagnostic procedures on your residential HVAC system.This will guarantee that all parts have been cleaned, drained, and lubricated, as well as that all assembly and burner controls are functioning as intended.
As always, preventative maintenance and HVAC winterization for your home’s heating and cooling systems should be performed by a certified HVAC professional.
