When summer is over, you don’t always give much thought to your HVAC system. However, your system needs a checkup in the fall and skipping it can lead to problems during colder weather. Fall is a great time to schedule semi-annual maintenance for your heating system in Palmyra, MO.
Keep Your Indoor Air Clean
Airborne articles don’t disappear in winter, and with the shuttering of windows during cooler weather, they can actually increase. Over the summer, the heating side of your HVAC system can pick up dust, dirt and other debris that can contribute to poor indoor air quality. Having the heating side of your HVAC system serviced will lead to better air quality when you turn on the furnace.
Ensure Your Safety
Every time one of our technicians performs maintenance, your HVAC unit will receive a thorough inspection of all moving parts. This inspection is especially critical for the heating side of your HVAC as cracked and poorly working parts can lead to odorless fumes in your homes. These fumes can affect air quality, but they can also be dangerous as an accumulation of carbon monoxide can make you sick or even cause death.
Increase HVAC Efficiency
A clean and tuned furnace will also run more efficiently. First, you will have lower utility bills because the system won’t have to work as hard to move heated air. Secondly, an efficient system will also trap winter dust and dirt in its air filter, leading to a better environment.
Maintain Optimal Comfort Levels
When you do a few tasks on your own, like regularly cleaning air registers and changing the filter, your system will work properly and will be able to maintain optimal comfort levels in your home. All rooms in your home should have even heating without cold spots.
