If you live in Texas, then the best time to get maintenance done on your HVAC system is during the fall season. Your air conditioner has been running all summer long, and you are about to fire up your furnace. HVAC professionals recommend annual maintenance to prevent urgent, or even emergency, situations from arising during the winter months. In fact, there are many compelling reasons to get your HVAC system tuned-up this fall, but here are the top three.
- Increased Heater Efficiency – Dirt and other debris are drawn into your vents as you run your AC all summer, causing a build-up of material that clogs your filters. Getting these filters replaced and your ductwork cleaned should be done before you switch from cooling to heating. Your furnace will work more efficiently, and the improved flow of air will result in a much more comfortable, warmer home during the winter.
- Small Problems Don’t Become Larger Ones – Preventative maintenance is quite important when it comes to spotting little problems before they become major repairs. Ignoring annual maintenance might seem like you are saving money. However, in the long run, you will pay much more for major problems that will eventually arise, or even replacing an entire HVAC system due to neglect.
- Improved Quality of Air – Using a quality air filter is crucial to the quality of air in your home. Changing filters now will mean that you will have reduced health issues for you and your family. There are different types of HVAC filters, with some high-efficiency filters reported as removing up to 85 percent of the pollutants in a home, significantly increasing the quality of air being circulated throughout your home this winter.
