It is important to make sure both the heating and cooling units in your home are kept clean and well-functioning. One way to do this is to bring in a heating and cooling specialist to inspect your equipment at least once a year. With the hot summer season quickly approaching, now is the time to consider a general air-conditioning inspection to ensure your system is operating safely and effectively. Proper a/c maintenance of your air-conditioner will not only save you money, it will reduce greenhouse emissions and can extend the life of your unit.
Any number of things can happen throughout the year to cause poor performance of this vital home system. Often times problems that start small or are unnoticeable during low operational times, can cause a system to break down during peak performance when technicians are at their busiest and the price of emergency repair is more costly. It is much more effective to have the system properly inspected before the heat of summer causes problems.
As a home owner, you do not need to understand everything about the operation of your heating and cooling system, but you should have a basic understanding of how the system operates and what happens when the system is not functioning properly. You should think of your technician as an expert who is there to help you. Use the technician’s visit as an opportunity to learn about common problems and effective maintenance practices. A little bit of time spent understanding your system before the heat of summer or the cold of winter arrives can save you costly headaches. Also, ask your technician to explain the signs you should be looking for that indicate a poorly operating piece of equipment, and to tell you about maintenance plan that best suits your home’s needs. Enjoy your summer without the worry of a system breakdown by taking the time now to understand your cooling system and ensuring it is operating effectively!
