Many a homeowner will wait until the middle of a heat spell or during a tooth-chattering winter to consider a tune-up for a poorly functioning air
conditioning or heating system. Routine ac maintenance, heating system maintenance, and the upkeep of your heating system can spare
you money and discomfort when nasty weather comes. Every homeowner wants trouble-free, energy-efficient heating and cooling. Complete system replacements
are more common (as much as 42%) in systems that do not undergo routine maintenance. While ac or heating system maintenance can cost you under $150,
consider the price in loss of performance and higher energy bills or, worse, the replacement cost for a new system.
One of the most important aspects of your home is the quality and performance of your heating and cooling system. Whether during the hot, dry summer or the bitter-cold winter, making sure that the inside of your home stays at a constant, comfortable temperature is of paramount importance. Yet most of us do not even think about our heating and cooling system until it starts to fail. It is something that we just seem to take for granted.
Simple upkeep pays dividends. You'll want to change your ac filters regularly to make sure air flows properly through the system. The ac indoor evaporator coil often needs cleaning to make sure you're not circulating dirt and molds. Inspect your ductwork. If you have a furnace, clean the filter there, too. Your heating technician can examine flues and temperature settings and examine the heat exchanger for cracks. Be sure to check the safety mechanisms on natural gas units. Remember, more than just your investment can go up in smoke.
