We’re on the cusp of changing weather here in North Texas, which means you’ve probably started to feel a slight chill in the air. With colder weather comes more heating, and more heating means your HVAC system is about to be put through the works once again!
If you’re like us, you love the smell of a heater turning on for the first time. That smell is exactly why you need HVAC maintenance! The dust has settled all over your system. You’ve likely left it sitting there all year without a second thought. Well, it’s never too late for preventative maintenance, and November is the best time for it! Here’s why.
Long Summers Mean More Cooling
A staple of Texas summers is the heat that overstays its welcome far beyond summer’s official end. Air conditioners are finally becoming obsolete for a season, and North Texas homeowners are rejoicing everywhere.
After all that hard work, it only makes sense to give your AC a quick once over. Before it goes into hibernation, tuning up your system will ensure that it will be as good as new whenever the spring heat ramps up. Plus, if there is any wear and tear, causing your air conditioner to strain, it is better to immediately address the issue rather than let the worn parts degrade further during the winter.
Prevent Heating Repairs
HVAC maintenance does wonders for your furnace as well as your AC. In addition to providing your air conditioning a tune-down of sorts, preventative maintenance can keep your furnace from ever causing issues for you and your family.
Small issues are easier to catch if you regularly keep up with your system. Minor heating repairs prevent larger problems down the line. With November HVAC maintenance, you can avoid:
- Complete heater breakdowns
- Unusually loud components
- Foul-smelling air when the system is on
- Dirty air filters
- Carbon monoxide leaks
- Frequent cycles
- Constant blower operation
Each tune-up goes over every aspect of your system, oiling and tightening to ensure your heater is in the best condition possible. After all, the winter is when you need it most. Make sure it’s ready.
Save Your Money for Something Better
The long-term gratification of HVAC maintenance isn’t always apparent to homeowners. The truth is, you have to invest a little in your system to receive the benefits. Preventative maintenance allows you to spend money when your system needs a touch-up rather than shelling out cash for a major repair.
Plus, the minor touch-ups help your system run more efficiently. Over time, a more efficient system will save you up to 20% on your energy bill.
If that’s not enough to make you schedule your maintenance service, we’ve got even better news for you. Heaters and air conditioners only last about 15 years. That is if they’re taken care of properly. HVAC maintenance can extend your system’s lifespan, so you don’t have to find a replacement sooner than necessary.
It pays to be a little cautious now and then. Protect your system by scheduling regular maintenance this November with Willard AC. Our techs will take care of everything.
