The Importance of Fall HVAC Maintenance

As fall continues and the temperature here in Mt. Pleasant continues to drop, the more important HVAC maintenance becomes. When the seasons change, you turn off one HVAC system to start using another. During this time of year, you’re turning off your cooling system to turn on your heat. In order to keep things working properly, it’s important to schedule routine maintenance. This is especially beneficial for systems that haven’t been used for a while, like your furnace or heat pump. For all of your HVAC maintenance, Custom Climate can help!

Benefits of Professional HVAC Maintenance

One less risk of a fire, gas leak, or carbon monoxide leak. A damaged heating system is more than a financial drain, but a major safety hazard. Most models combust fuel to produce heat, and if it’s malfunctioning, that could lead to gas and carbon monoxide leaks. Servicing your furnace on a regular basis ensures that it’s fully functional, intact, and its safety features still work.

Better Indoor Air Quality 

Besides preventing fatal safety hazards, routinely servicing your HVAC system can drastically improve your home’s indoor air quality. Your furnace works by ventilating and circulating heat throughout your home, and it has an air filter for debris and other contaminants. A heating system that’s lacking in service and maintenance, however, would imply that the air filter is dirty, and that means it’s circulating dirty air throughout your home. Depending on the size of your home, pets, and how often you use your heat, the air filter should be replaced at least once a year.

Lower Utilities 

A heating system that’s well maintained can work efficiently and run less often to heat your home. Heating bills are already costly enough, but a damaged furnace overworking itself can drastically increase the cost. Proper maintenance saves more than just your utility bill, but the cost of avoidable repairs, or worse, an early replacement.

Less Frequent Repairs

Your furnace or heat pump will need the occasional repair, but a furnace in long need of servicing could result in several repairs adding up. Your furnace is complicated with a lot of components that need routine cleaning and tune-ups. Most repairs can be prevented with regular care, which involves cleaning the air filter, keeping it properly ventilated, and tuning up parts when necessary.

Increased Comfort

Your comfort is important, but a malfunctioning furnace or heat pump will have a hard time keeping your home warm and cozy. Servicing your system helps to keep it running effectively and efficiently. A functioning furnace also distributes heat evenly, preventing pesky cold spots and running the unit longer than necessary.

Better Preparation

The winter season can be a harsh time of year, and a disaster can happen. Heavy rain or ice can weigh down your roof and cause a leak. The frigid temperatures outside put your plumbing at risk of freezing. It can also be unbearably cold outside, and a busted heater makes for a very miserable winter. Routinely servicing your HVAC system ensures it’s prepared for the hard work ahead come next winter.
