Along with spring cleaning, maintenance for your heating and cooling system is a very good idea during this time of the year. Getting a tune-up helps make sure your unit is not only clean, but functioning properly for the seasons to come. If you get a professional checkup, you can feel good about your heating and cooling having everything it needs to get you through the calendar year in comfort. Homeowners can take some preventive steps to make sure their units are working to capacity, such as basic cleaning and testing. Professional service gives you that additional close look to make certain there are no problems cropping up you are unaware of, and to keep things running smoothly. The team at CJS Heating and Air is pleased to share what a heating and cooling company can do for you at this time of year in terms of maintenance.
Professional heating and cooling maintenanceNot only can professional service help keep your heating and cooling systems running right, but it can save you money, as well. If your unit is in need of any minor tweaks, it’s likely to run more efficiently afterward. Let’s take a closer look at two common maintenance tasks all heating and cooling systems should have done periodically for them to function at their best.
- System tune-up
- Professional maintenance service can be considered a tune-up of sorts, where the service staff will examine the components of your unit and see if everything is working as it should. In addition, tasks such as changing the air filter and checking for leaks will be performed to make sure things are clean and ready to go when you need to dial down your temperature.
- Duct cleaning service
- Duct cleaning is something many people overlook, but it’s an important part of heating and cooling maintenance. Spring can be a good time to have this done, as the temperatures are generally moderate. If you haven’t had this service performed in a while, you may want to consider it, as it can improve air quality and, in some cases, airflow, as well.
- How often you should have your air ducts clean varies. Timing can depend upon numerous factors, such as pet ownership, recent remodeling work, and family members who may have allergies. A professional service should be able to look at your ducts and let you know if you need them cleaned or not.
