With the glorious weather we have had across Oregon these past few days, many of you might be getting the “spring cleaning” bug. Maybe it’s time to clean out closets, dust those hard to reach spots in the house, and pack away cold winter boots and coats. And it’s not too early to start thinking towards the spring month and how you should get on our schedule to get your heating and cooling system checked. Maintaining your equipment means that you can prevent future issues and unexpected costs in the future. Annual check-ups are important and when the warmth of spring and summer hits, your system will need to be at its peak in order to run efficiently and effectively.
What does a routine maintenance check-up include?
1. We will check the thermostat settings to make sure that system will keep you comfortable. In addition, a thermostat that is in good working condition will save energy when you’re away and not using the system
2. We’ll check moving parts and electrical connections. If you have a faulty electrical connection, it could mean that you are using a system that is potentially unsafe and could wreck the overall life of the big components that make up the system. We’ll also be sure that the condensation drains are working properly. If it isn’t, there could be damage done to the house and humidity levels may be affected.
In the meantime, be sure that you are inspecting and cleaning your air filters on a regular basis (once a month or once every month is recommended). Dirty filters reduce efficiency and may cause damage to your system in the long run.
