You know your HVAC system needs routine professional maintenance to operate at peak efficiency. But does it really matter when you schedule that maintenance? Here are some reasons early fall is a good time to schedule heating maintenance in your New Bern, NC, home:
Beat the Rush
Like any other business, HVAC has its busy seasons, and you might have to wait to get your system serviced. It may be common for you to wait until you’re closer to the cold weather before scheduling your heating maintenance. This means you’ll have less flexibility for your schedule to have a service technician complete your maintenance.
Full Season of Heating Efficiency
Improved efficiency is a primary reason you want to have your system professionally maintained. If you wait for this maintenance, your system will run less efficiently until you can get it completed. Maintenance in the early fall allows you to enjoy maximum efficiency all season long.
As you head into the fall, you also head toward the cold and flu seasons. Poor indoor air quality exacerbates these respiratory conditions.
Fall maintenance cleans out built-up contaminants on the heat exchanger and circulating fan in your home. This removes many contaminants that would recirculate, leading to respiratory irritation. When cold and flu season does hit, your system will be better positioned to handle it by being less irritated.
You could be experiencing some level of stress associated with your HVAC system, wondering when it may break down. These unexpected heating repairs often come at the worst times, when you need your system the most.
During maintenance, your service technician will test each component to ensure it’s operating optimally. When they uncover something sub-optimal, you can get a repair before it leaves you without heat. Early maintenance gives you peace of mind, and time to plan and budget for the repair.
