Maintenance: The key to reliable heating and cooling equipment
With coronavirus keeping us home more than expected in spring 2020, the working condition of our home comfort systems becomes more important than ever.
A well-maintained heating or cooling system will run more reliably and help keep our indoor air quality as healthy as possible, especially if your home features a forced air system (one with vents rather than radiators or baseboards). Routine heating and cooling maintenance can also address minor issues before they become expensive emergencies.
Four things you can do to prepare for A/C or heating maintenance
Although HVAC maintenance is not a do-it-yourself project (please don’t try it if you’re not a professional), there are some things you can do to get a step ahead as you begin your spring cleaning tasks in the coming weeks.
- Check your ductwork – Look for obvious holes, cracks and connectors. If you find any – or even if you don’t, since many leaks in your ductwork can’t be seen – consider sealing your ducts to improve your air quality and lower your home energy bills.
- Test your air conditioning unit – Briefly run your air conditioner to check for problems – that way you can call to have them fixed before the heat arrives.
- Clear obstructions around the outdoor unit – Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris that may have gathered in the fall and winter from around your outdoor unit.
- Schedule your annual tune-up and inspection – Keeping your heating system running great is just one of the many benefits of a Holden Oil Service Plan; you’ll also get priority service, discounted or covered repairs, and more.
