The cooler temperatures are about to descend on Frederick, VA. Therefore, it’s important to start thinking about maintenance for your HVAC system as soon as possible. Discover three reasons to schedule your annual fall HVAC maintenance so that you can avoid cold winter nights without adequate heating.
Get Prepared For Winter
Get your maintenance scheduled in the fall before extreme cold conditions hit the area. It’s likely that you don’t need to use either the AC unit or furnace on an average fall day. This is the perfect time to get things prepared for the winter. Your HVAC service technician will winterize the air conditioner unit. This process involves:
- Cutting the power supply on the electrical circuit.
- Removing twigs, leaves and other debris.
- Protecting pipes from freezing.
Maintain Indoor Air Quality
It’s especially important to maintain your home’s indoor air quality during the winter because your family spends so much time inside. A fall HVAC maintenance check ensures that the system is clean, free from debris and primed to cycle high-quality airflow all winter long.
Failing to perform this system check leaves your family vulnerable to breathing problems during the colder months. Poor airflow and air quality can lead to asthma and other respiratory issues.
Get an Early Warning About Needed Repairs
You don’t want to experience HVAC system breakdowns during the winter. This can lead to safety issues where pipes might freeze or the faulty system might expose your family to dangerously cold temperatures. Invite your HVAC service technician into the house on a comfortable fall day and get needed repairs completed before the cold weather hits.
More than likely, your HVAC system needs a simple tuneup and a few minor repairs to get ready for the winter. However, what happens if your service technician finds something that indicates the need for full HVAC system replacement? Don’t wait to find that out on a cold December or January night!
