3 Things You Need To Do With Your HVAC System Before Winter Hits

With winter right around the corner, you want to make sure your HVAC system is in good working order. The last thing you want to deal with is no heat at the most inopportune time of the year. Instead of just assuming your system is fine, you need to bring in a licensed professional who can take a look at it for you and make sure nothing needs to be fixed before winter. To make sure your system is working the way it should, here are three things you need to have done with your HVAC system.

Coils

The coils can end up getting dusty and dirty. When that happens, it causes them to struggle to provide your home with the heat it needs. Not only does this end up costing you more out of your own pocket to heat the home, but it also strains the system. All of that added stress and strain on your system will end up causing other components to break down before their time.

Ducts

Your ducts are what pushes the air through your home and into the vents. Over the course of time, your ducts can get filled with pet hair, dust, dander, animal droppings and a whole host of other things. You don't want to turn your system on only to end up with a bunch of contaminants blowing around the air you breathe. You are better off having a professional come in and clean out the ducts for you to eliminate any contamination from occurring.

Burner

The burner is what ignites and helps fuel your system. If that burner is dirty or corroded, it will end up struggling to light. It might not even light at all if it is damaged. You will want to have the burners replaced before winter to prevent any problems with being able to heat your home this winter. Even if the burner looks fine, you still want to have it cleaned.

By having the three things above taken care of, you can minimize your chance of being stuck with no heat in the middle of winter. You can also make sure your system is in good working order and not costing you more than it should on your energy bill each month. If you are ever in doubt about what needs to be done or when you should have it done, take the time to speak with a licensed HVAC professional. Click here to continue reading more on the topic.

About Me

The Comfort of Home

When I married my amazing husband ten years ago, I moved into the brick, ranch home he already owned. Immediately, I was thankful that the house was equipped with a central heating and air conditioning unit. This once efficient system kept me cool during the hot summer days. It also allowed me to remain warm in my home during the cold winter nights. Now, our air conditioning unit is twenty years old. Because of its age, the system has started to malfunction. Recently, my husband contacted an HVAC contractor about installing a new system at our home. This kind technician patched our old system to give us time to contemplate what type of new unit we want. On this blog, I hope you will discover the ways an HVAC contractor can help you continue to enjoy the comfort of your home.
