As the countdown to Thanksgiving moves forward, have you stopped to think about what the holiday gathering might be like if your HVAC system shuts down just when the company starts arriving? No one likes to think about that happening in your Orange County, CA home and the best way to prevent it is regular HVAC maintenance from the professionals at Associated Heating & Air.
Identifying problems early
This is what seasonal tune-ups are designed to do. A trained HVAC technician can often identify and fix potential problems before a breakdown occurs. Think of it as an ounce of prevention. Would you rather spend a few bucks on a scheduled maintenance visit? Or call for emergency service on Thanksgiving morning and hope the problem can be fixed before dinner?
HVAC Maintenance = Saving money
Reliability isn’t the only benefit you receive from preventive maintenance. It will also save money on the monthly utility bills. A system gets dirty causing wear and tear which leads to loss of efficiency. This causes your system to run more and results in higher energy bills. Wear and tear also cause breakdowns that are almost always more expensive to fix than routine maintenance calls.
Warranty coverage lapses
This is another problem if you ignore regular maintenance. Many manufacturers require maintenance by a trained technician for the warranty to remain valid. If you gamble and lose you could be stuck with a big repair bill if something goes wrong.
You can help
It always makes things better when the homeowners do their part. Make sure to change your filters regularly, keep debris and vegetation away from any outside compressors, and make sure your thermostat has fresh batteries if it requires them.
