According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating and cooling account for around 48% of the total energy use in the average American home. This is the largest use of energy we use at home!
Being so heavily relied on for many months on end means that your system goes through a LOT — and needs a lot of care in return. With only a few scheduled maintenance appointments every year, you can take care of your system, prevent small problems from becoming big issues, and save money and energy!
Why is Fall Maintenance Important?
Regular HVAC maintenance has numerous benefits — including huge savings on your utility bills due to the improved efficiency in performance. Any HVAC system that’s heavily relied on in summer and/or winter needs to be prepped for the coming reliance.
When Should I Schedule Fall Maintenance?
Getting your HVAC system checked at least two times a year ensures the safety and comfort of your home. For many homes, these bi-annual checks happen in spring and fall. In other words, the season before you plan to use the heating or cooling setting on your unit the most.
What to Lookout For During a Tune-Up
How do you know if your system isn’t performing at peak efficiency? Be on the lookout for these major issues:
- Higher energy bills
- Inconsistent airflow
- Dirty air filters
- Significant temperature changes in each room
