Groundhog Day can be more than a fun holiday predicting the rest of winter; have you thought about the fact that it’s also a great opportunity to request a tune-up for your HVAC system? At Point Heating & Cooling, our team of certified experts can keep your heating and cooling system in excellent working order. It just so happens that this time of year can be a sweet spot for an HVAC checkup appointment.
Optimal Timing for Your HVAC Maintenance
As Groundhog Day marks a potential shift in seasons, it's also an ideal time to check your heating system. For example, single-digit temperatures can put considerable wear on important parts of the system. Staying on top of routine HVAC maintenance gives a professional HVAC technician a chance to help you decide if your furnace needs a little extra attention.
Scheduling maintenance around Groundhog Day also prepares your air conditioning or cooling system just in time for summer. In fact, scheduling two maintenance appointments each year will offer the best results. One should be as winter ends with the other in fall.
Essentials for Your HVAC Maintenance Checklist
Routine maintenance visits are vital for ensuring your HVAC system operates efficiently for many years. A detailed inspection and cleaning process allows our technicians adequate time to make sure everything is in working order. On a service call, some specific maintenance tasks your technician will carry out can include:
- Replacing the air filters or replacing any lost coolant: Ensuring the right balance of airflow and filtration is critical, which means regularly cleaning or switching out the air filters. If your system has leaked refrigerant, we'll replenish the supply and find the problem.
- Clearing the drain lines: Cleaning the drainage system ensures things flowing like it’s supposed to and avoids water damage.
- Checking electrical connections and safety features: Confirming that the wiring and software features are functioning properly is vital. This avoids fires and maintains your system's reliability.
The best kind of HVAC maintenance is proactive—stopping problems before they arise. Such proactive service from our professionals can provide your heating and cooling systems the best chance for maintaining peak condition.
