Why You Need to Schedule Fall Maintenance Service for Your HVAC System

Why You Need to Schedule Fall Maintenance Service for Your HVAC System
Some people question the need to have routine service performed on their HVAC system. If the system seems to be working well, why pay to have it serviced, right?

This could not be further from the truth. As you well know, an HVAC system is one of the biggest investments that you’ll make for your home or commercial space. By having routine maintenance performed on your system every spring and fall (even if everything seems to be working well), you’ll greatly prolong the life of your HVAC system, helping to protect this important investment.

With the change in seasons, you may be thinking about when you’ll need to schedule your fall HVAC maintenance. While the temperatures in Port Orange will still be warm for the next month or two, this is the ideal time to schedule service for your system in preparation for the cooler weather to come.

You’ll want to be sure to schedule fall maintenance for a number of reasons that extend beyond prolonging the life of your HVAC system. First of all, your Port Orange HVAC professional will carefully calibrate your system to ensure that it’s running efficiently, which will save you money on utility bills. When you’re system is running efficiently, you’ll benefit from a comfortable living environment, even on the coldest of nights. Also, since routine maintenance can help to proactively address issues with your HVAC system before they become costly repairs, you can benefit from having more money in the bank.

Here are some areas that your Port Orange HVAC technician will address during fall routine service:

  • Lubricate moving parts
  • Confirm that electrical and gas connections are tightened
  • Inspect for damage to terminals, gas lines, and wires
  • Check airflow to confirm effectiveness
  • Repair leaky or damaged ducts
  • Clean condensate plan and flush the drain
  • Inspect ignition and burner assembly
  • Calibrate control systems

Fall maintenance also provides you with a great opportunity to talk to your HVAC technician about any other concerns that you have with your system.

In summary, having routine maintenance performed on your HVAC system is one of the best ways to protect your investment and absolutely necessary if you want to prolong the life of your system.

The colder temperatures will be here before you know it. Please contact your Port Orange HVAC professionals at East Coast Heating and Air Conditioning to schedule your fall preventative maintenance for your system today.
