Types of HVAC Checks
From living in Sudbury, you already know that having heating and air conditioning systems—as well as any water systems—that function properly are essential. Our freezing winters and humid summers mean we need the inner workings of our homes to do their job, so we can not only stay comfortable, but survive. See the types of HVAC maintenance checks and services we can provide—and also when to get them performed.
Whether you have a heating rental, a furnace, or a boiler, it’s imperative you get everything in order before the colder months set in. Not only is a checkup good to ensure that your system is in good shape, but it can actually extend the life of your heating system. As an added bonus, a properly functioning heating source can help you save money on energy bills (1).
Furnace inspections are essential because they also ensure that there aren’t any carbon monoxide leaks. This is a lethal gas in high enough doses, and since it’s odorless and colorless, it can be hard to detect without an alarm. Your HVAC specialists from Borts Heating Services will also check the thermostat settings to make sure everything is functioning, as well as check the voltage and other electrical connections. All of these little details add up, and can result in you having a safely functioning heating system that even saves you money in the process.
When to Check:
Once a year, late summer or early fall
It might not seem like it in the dead of winter, but the time for an air conditioning unit inspection sneaks up faster than you think. Not only do you need to have your AC unit inspected, but it should be cleaned as well. This ensures that your air conditioning will be ready to run when those humid July days hit, as well as run more efficiently (and cost you less money on energy bills as a result). Angie’s List explains further: “As your HVAC system runs, it accumulates dust and dirt in key areas that affect its efficiency, like the condensing coils and air filters. Left unchecked, your A/C system can lose 5 percent of its operating efficiency each year” (2).
When it comes to HVAC, it’s not just about making sure things work, it’s about making sure your systems run to their peak capacity and efficiency. Scheduling an appointment with Borts Heating Services for service and maintenance on your air conditioning unit can ensure that it won’t only run, but run well and run for longer.
