At Royal Heating and Air, we know your HVAC system is one of the more expensive systems in your home. It is also one you rely on every single day, 24/7 and DO NOT want to be without due to an unexpected failure. Just like with your car, HVAC maintenance is critical to keeping your system running efficiently and reliably. So today, we wanted to talk to you about important benefits of a fall maintenance check.
Efficiency and Lifespan
As parts wear and dust accumulates on your components, your furnace and air conditioner can become less efficient and have to work harder. Over time this can slowly increase your energy bill and reduce the lifespan of your system. In fact, consistent maintenance can lengthen the working life of your system up to 48% and reduce loss of efficiency up to 15%.
Prevent Bigger Problems
Regular preventative maintenance can not only increase efficiency and lifespan, it also helps you discover and repair things before they lead to bigger problems, more expensive repairs, and potential outages. If you have not had your furnace serviced yet this year, we have HVAC technicians at the Lake of the Ozarks ready to help
What It Entails
When one of our technicians arrives for a fall HVAC maintenance check at the Lake of the Ozarks, the first thing that will happen is your system and its components will be inspected. If parts are dirty, they will be cleaned, if there are signs of wear or damage, those will be addressed. Moving parts will be lubricated and if the filter is clogged it will be replaced. The air handler will be checked out to make sure it is in good working condition and cleaned if needed. Airflow efficiency will be measured and your thermostat will also be tested and calibrated if necessary. In addition, the technician will monitor the system while it is on to make sure it is functioning properly and not using more power than it should be. If you have a gas furnace the burner will be cleaned and the heat exchanger checked for signs of cracking or corrosion, too. Any issue that is found will be brought to your attention and discussed along with repair solutions.
While it is easy not to think about your heating and cooling system … it is no fun if it stops working. It is far better (and less expensive) to fix a small problem before it becomes huge issue or leaves you without service in the coldest season.
