If you are a car owner, you probably know the importance of regular tune-ups to keep your car running smoothly and prevent breakdowns. But did you know that your home’s HVAC system also needs regular tune-ups? When you schedule an HVAC tune-up with Heating Specialties of Fairton, N.J., you’re letting our experienced technicians clean and inspect your system, conducting minor repairs on the spot and helping you avoid costly repairs in the future.
Your furnace and A/C should each receive an annual tune-up. What’s the best time to schedule these essential service calls? Read on.
Harsh seasons can put your HVAC system to work
You know what they say – if you don’t like the weather in New Jersey, wait five minutes! It’s an age-old saying, but residents know the weather can be unpredictable here in the Garden State. We can see freezing temperatures and snow in the winter and endure oppressive heat and muggy air in the summer. In between, it can go from sunny to snowflakes during the day.
These hot and cold temperatures can keep our HVAC system running throughout the year. While the average HVAC system lasts between 10 and 15 years, weather extremes can make it work harder. Connections can become loose and mechanical parts can break. The sooner these problems are caught, the better.
Schedule your tune-ups in the off-season
The best time to schedule your home’s A/C tune-up is early spring before you rely on the A/C to keep your family cool. Alternatively, your furnace should be tuned up in the early fall before the cold weather.
What’s so great about this time? Our technicians are often more relaxed during the spring and fall months when the weather isn’t overworking HVAC units and forcing repair calls. Having your unit serviced before it starts to cool or heat your home is also a good idea. This allows your Heating Specialties HVAC technician to diagnose and fix any problems that can reduce your system’s efficiency.
Regular tune-ups work best when they’re regular. Don’t try to save money by skipping a year with your home’s A/C or furnace tune-up. You may pay a lot more for pricey repairs.
What if you forgot to schedule your tune-up?
It’s already May, and you’ve turned on the A/C a few times to combat unseasonably hot weather. Is it too late to schedule your home’s A/C tune-up? Of course not. If you want an added advantage, check out our yearly HVAC maintenance program, which can help you budget and plan these critical appointments.
