Is Your AC System Ready for Winter?

October 10, 2022 | Blog

With the weather cooling down and winter months approaching, it’s important to make sure your home’s HVAC system is in good working order. You should always consider professional maintenance in the fall and spring months to prevent a heating or cooling emergency during harsh weather conditions.

Another promising way to avoid your system from malfunctioning is to prepare your unit for the seasons before the weather changes. This will help ensure that things are working appropriately (and efficiently) to keep the chances of surprise complications relatively low.

Let’s face it, no one wants to be stuck without heat in the middle of the winter. So, what can be done to make sure it won’t happen to you? Trahan’s Heating & Cooling is here with suggestions.

Preventative Furnace Maintenance

Scheduling routine maintenance for your heating and cooling system is essential for its overall reliability and longevity. A technician will perform a heater tune-up to test and confirm that all components of your unit look normal and nothing is likely to cause sudden issues. Regular tune-ups include things like:

  • Replacing air filters
  • Looking over electrical connections
  • Dusting coils & oiling parts
  • Assessing parts for unnoticed damage
  • Testing the thermostat
  • Checking refrigerant levels

It’s important to have a specially trained tech to complete these steps and make certain everything gets done thoroughly and correctly. Having proper routine maintenance completed on your system can potentially end up saving you money on otherwise necessary repairs you’d possibly need in the future. Not only that but there are other benefits that come with following a regular tune-up schedule as well.

AC Tune-Up Benefits

There are many advantages that come with following your air conditioning system’s regular servicing recommendations. First, you’re a lot less likely to spend a ton of unforeseen money on new parts and repairs because an experienced technician is usually able to catch an issue before it reaches a breaking point. It’s also possible you’ll see a smaller number on your monthly energy bill due to your unit operating more efficiently from receiving expert care.

Like most other things, your heating and cooling system is likely to last longer the better you take care of it. Even keeping up with something as small as filter changes can make a world of a difference in these units over time and help keep the temperature comfortable inside your home no matter what the season is. So, when was the last time you had professional AC maintenance?
