As we head into Fall, with Winter close behind, our thoughts turn toward making those important winter preparations to our HVAC system. These are especially important steps we take each year in order to prevent any problems that could lead to huge expense or inconvenience. Additionally, by taking these steps each season, we can be assured of our system functioning efficiently for years to come.
Winter preparations and HVAC services should be considered part of your essential home maintenance. By maintaining your home, you will retain the value as well as save money on avoidable repair and replacement costs.
Take the following steps to head off any unforeseen problems:
Take A Close Look
By making a close examination of your HVAC system by sight, sound, smell and feel, you can find a possible source of wear or a broken part. If there is an unusual sound or vibration you should contact your HVAC Services company for a professional inspection.
By changing your filter prior to turning on the furnace for the first time, you can capture some of that dirt and dust that has possible gathered in the heating ducts. After a couple of days of running the furnace, check the filter again and if there are signs of dust and dirt accumulation, this would be the perfect time to contact Sila Heating and Air to perform a comprehensive inspection and cleaning.
Invest In A Programmable Thermostat
This is one investment in which you will see a great return. By handling the heating and cooling, the thermostat will make an impact on the cost and efficiency of the system. By setting the temperature lower when you are at work or when you are sleeping, you can realize a real savings on your electric bill. It can be really nice to set the system to kick on 10 minutes before your alarm clock rings so you can wake up to a warmer home.
At minimum, an inspection performed annually can help avoid a potentially costly situation and no heat in the middle of winter or air conditioning in the middle of summer. If you think there may be a problem, don’t hesitate to contact an expert.
