Why You Should Get Your System Tuned Up During The Fall

Don’t procrastinate getting your system tuned up before the cold weather hits. Fall is the perfect time to get your annual furnace tune-up appointment scheduled. For the sake of your safety, the longevity of your system, and your energy bills, it’s very important to get your system serviced before you have to use your heat on a daily basis. Here are some reasons why you should get your system tuned up during the fall.

Reason #1: Early intervention is key.
Getting your furnace tuned up means we’ll do a thorough inspection of the machine to make sure we can catch any small problems before they turn into large ones. Early intervention can help you avoid major breakdowns that can be expensive. In addition, we can help warn you if your system may be nearing the end of its lifespan so you can start planning ahead to replace it.

Reason #2: Safety.
If your furnace malfunctions, it could cause more than inconvenience or discomfort. Furnaces that break can often cause carbon monoxide leaks and sometimes can even be a fire hazard. Getting your furnace checked yearly is important because we will be able to detect any issues and make prompt repairs, so you don’t have to be left worrying about the safety of your family.

Reason #3: Cleanliness.
Furnaces collect dust, debris, and dirt throughout the year and if it’s not clean before you crank up the heat, you’re likely going to notice that smell inside your home for a while. This can contribute to poor air quality, which means you’re breathing dirty air and compromising your health and wellbeing. A tune-up will include a great cleaning of the system so you can be assured that things are clean and ready to operate the way they were intended to.

Reason #4: Tune-ups will extend the life of your system.
Do you want to get the most out of your furnace system for years to come? Annual tune-ups will help keep your system working well, year after year. Not to mention, you’ll be able to make sure it’s operating at is peak performance, which means you’ll save energy and likely notice a difference in your energy bill.

Your furnace is a vital component of your home and keeping it well taken care of will not only save you the inconvenience of a system breakdown right when you need your furnace most, but it will also help you prolong the life of the system, which can save you money in the long run. There are lots of reasons to take care of your heating system, so don’t delay in getting your annual maintenance appointment set up.

Home Improvement Ideas for Fall

Fall has officially arrived and the weather will soon be getting cooler and cooler. Now is a great time to complete those home improvement projects around your home that may have been piling up. Before the winter weather sets in, start tackling your project list and don’t neglect taking care of your heating and cooling system, either. Our home improvement ideas for fall include many helpful items for your HVAC system.

#1: Replace your air filters.
This is a simple, but very important task related to home maintenance. Your indoor air quality is important and if your air filters haven’t been changed in a while, it’s likely not only making your HVAC system work harder, but it could be allowing in contaminated air into your home. Pollutants, bacteria, and other harmful airborne particles enter the air through your HVAC system and your air filters play an important role in filtering out the junk. A clean air filter will help block harmful air contaminants and keep the air you breathe clean. Change your air filters every one to two months. It you’re looking to take your air purification to a new level, consider adding an air purification system. We carry a variety of air purifiers that can kill up to 99% of harmful irritants that can circulate through the home.

#2: Upgrade your thermostat.
Your thermostat is a big part of the overall functioning of your HVAC system and if you choose to upgrade your thermostat, you’ll see some great benefits! One of the first benefits of a new thermostat is the ability for it to keep the temperature in your home accurate at all times. If your home is full of cold spots or rooms that are warmer or colder than other areas of the house, a new thermostat can help with that. Thermostats with digital displays and wi-fi control give you the control, so you can keep your home comfortable year-round. In addition, they’re energy efficient and could save you money on utility bills over the long run.

#3: Replace your system in time for fall and winter months.
If your furnace system is old and inefficient, or it’s been repaired more times than you can count, it’s probably a good idea to consider replacing it before the cold weather starts up. We can help you find a system that works well for your space as well as your budget. We carry a wide variety of gas furnaces, heat pumps, ductless systems, and more. No matter what your commercial or residential space requires, we can find one that’s right for you. A new system is an investment that is well worth it – it can bolster your quality of life and help add value to your property.
