Celebrate National Tune-Up Day with Fall HVAC Maintenance
National Tune-Up Day is coming up on September 25. It is a day established to remind homeowners to schedule routine maintenance on their heating systems in preparation for cold winter months. We have written in the past about why it is helpful to have AC maintenance in the spring before the heat of summer, and the same principle applies in the fall.
While the weather is mild and your HVAC system is not working at its maximum capacity, you can ensure a stress-free tune-up and prevent a panicked repair service this winter. Here are some of the benefits to fall HVAC maintenance from the licensed experts at Blue Flame.
Fall HVAC Maintenance Prevents Costly Repairs
If a tune-up for your heating system sounds unnecessary, consider a scenario where it shuts down during winter. Sometimes even a minor problem can temporarily ruin your system’s efficiency and leave you shivering in your own home. During the winter months when your HVAC system has to work nonstop to keep your house warm, it is extremely common for minor issues that were previously unnoticeable to avalanche into major problems.
If you call and schedule HVAC repair or replacement during the winter, you may encounter limited scheduling options. HVAC technicians stay busy during the summer and winter seasons. If an undetected problem with your HVAC system causes enough damage to warrant a significant repair job, it can also come with a significant price tag compared to a standard charge for routine maintenance. If you have to replace your heating system altogether, it will cost several thousand dollars.
Skipping Fall HVAC Maintenance Can Void Warranties
If your HVAC system is brand new, it might be extra tempting to skip annual maintenance. Although older units are much more likely to experience problems as their efficiency depletes over time, you should still schedule maintenance for heating systems installed within the last year. The biggest reason for this has to do with manufacturer warranties.
Some manufacturers require seasonal maintenance on your HVAC system technology in order to maintain your warranty. That means that if you buy an expensive, brand new heating system and need to schedule repairs just two years later, if you can’t provide proof of maintenance the manufacturer will void your warranty. You will end up paying out of pocket for repairs on a heating system that just recently cost you thousands of dollars.
