Groundhog Day isn't just about predicting the weather; have you ever considered that it’s also a good time of year to perform a checkup for your HVAC system? At Better Air, our team of certified experts can keep your heating and cooling system in optimal condition. It just so happens that this time of year is a prime moment for an HVAC checkup appointment.

When You Should Schedule Routine HVAC Maintenance

As Groundhog Day marks the end of the coldest part of winter, it's also an ideal time to take a look at your furnace. For example, single-digit temperatures can put considerable wear on important parts of the system. Scheduling routine HVAC maintenance gives a professional HVAC technician a chance to see if your furnace needs some TLC.

Scheduling maintenance around Groundhog Day also prepares your air conditioning or cooling system just in time for summer. In fact, the recommended schedule of two maintenance appointments each year will offer the best results. One should be before spring with the other in autumn.

Key Items to Include in Your HVAC Checkup

Routine maintenance tune-ups are crucial for ensuring your HVAC system operates with optimum efficiency. A detailed inspection and cleaning routine gives our technicians adequate time to verify that everything is in working order. During a visit, some specific maintenance tasks your technician will carry out can include:

  • Replacing the air filters or replacing any lost coolant: Keeping a healthy balance of airflow and filtration is key, which means a consistent schedule of cleaning or replacing your air filters. If your system has lost any refrigerant, we'll replenish the supply and find the problem.
  • Clearing the drain lines: Flushing out the drainage system ensures things flowing like it’s supposed to and minimize the risk of water damage.
  • Inspecting electrical connections and safety features: Making sure that the wiring and software features are in good working order is imperative. This avoids fires and preserves smooth operation.

The best kind of HVAC maintenance is proactive—stopping problems before they occur. Such proactive service from experienced professionals can provide your heating and cooling systems the optimal opportunity for long-term efficiency.
