Have Your System Serviced This Spring
With milder temperatures on their way in Ottawa, contacting your HVAC contractor to conduct a check-up on your system may not be something you are thinking about right now. Most likely you aren’t using your heating system as much as you were a few months ago, and you won’t need your air conditioning for a while, so what do you need to worry about right now?
The following are seven good reasons why it is a good idea to have your system serviced or checked this spring.
Convenience: Normally, contractors are not too busy in the spring. So when you call during this time, they might be able to come out right away and will be available during a time that is convenient for you. When you wait for warmer weather, technicians are going to be in higher demand and you may have to wait longer until they can come out.
Mild Weather: It may be necessary for you to shut off your HVAC system for one hour or longer in order to service or clean it. You are going to be a lot more comfortable if it is done on a mild day instead of a cold or hot one. Also, your HVAC Contractor will appreciate getting to work outdoors while the weather is nice.
Fast Repairs: If the HVAC Contractor detects that your system has a problem, it will be easier for them to fix it now while technicians are not busy and while parts are completely stocked. If a problem is discovered later there might be a delay in it getting repaired.
Energy Savings: Having your system serviced right now, before it’s time to start using your air conditioner means it will work much more efficiently beginning on the first hot day of the summer.
Reliability: Having your system checked right now in mild weather will give you the peace of mind that it will be ready when you do need it. If your system needs to be replaced or needs major repairs, it will give you more time to weigh your options and get the work done.
Save Money: Hopefully, you won’t need to purchase a new cooling or heating system this year. However, it is best to purchase it before July if you do. HVAC manufacturers frequently offer deals in May and June on replacement systems. Your HVAC Contractor will be happy to help you find great deals.
Maximum Comfort: Having your system serviced and cleaned means it will be ready to provide you with optimum performance once the warm weather sets in.
Additional Reasons Why Your HVAC System Should Be Serviced
Detect small problems before they turn into big ones: Easy repairs or minor adjustments can turn into major problems if you leave them unaddressed for too long. That can lead to more expensive repairs later on.
Efficiency: A well-adjusted, clean system works better and more effectively and, will save you money on cooling and heating your home as well as electricity
Changing Seasons: You can adjust some HVAC systems differently so they will provide you with optimum performance in winter or summer. So, having your HVAC contractor come out in the fall and spring is a good idea.
Plan Ahead: When you have your system checked on a regular basis, your HVAC contractor will have the chance to predict when it will be necessary for replacement or a major repair. That will also give you time to make adjustments to your budget, instead of having to have an emergency replacement or repair done when your system suddenly breaks down when you least expect it.
