Why Autumn Is the Time to Fix Home Heating and Air Issues

Your home HVAC unit is planning on working hard this winter, so make sure everything is working properly this fall. The sooner the better!

August 4, 2022

Summer is winding down and fall is upon us. For some, fall means football games and bonfires while others embrace all things pumpkin flavored. In addition to the fall fun, these next couple of months is the optimal time to maintain and fix any home heating and air issues that may have come about during the year. 

If your systems are experiencing problems, don’t fret. Schedule an appointment with a professional to service your HVAC. 

#1. HVAC Inspection 

Technicians follow specific steps when servicing your HVAC to cover all the bases. They often follow and checklist to be sure they mark off all the right boxes. This checklist is often multifaceted and has various categories within the list—like an inspection list and a verification list. 

Here is a glimpse of what’s on the inspection checklist: 

  • Outdoor condensing unit 
  • Visible refrigerant leaks 
  • Blower assembly and functionality 
  • Wire and control unit 
  • Safety control panel 

Here is a glimpse of what’s on the verification list: 

  • Blower speed 
  • Discharge pressure 
  • Air pressure 
  • Cooling and/or heat 
  • Voltage levels 

Lastly, it’s important to regularly clean the HVAC’s control panel and air filter to ensure system longevity and efficacy. Doing this can prolong the life of your HVAC unit. 

#2. Lengthening the Lifespan 

If you feel at all concerned about your HVAC unit, then invest in upgrading your system. The work and expense is always worth it. If you don’t feel like you’re ready to fully commit to an upgrade, you can schedule a regular maintenance appointment with us to be sure everything is working properly. Being sure everything is running smoothly by making various adjustments, repairs, or small replacements is just as important as an entire upgrade. The little things matter when it comes to prolonging your HVAC’s lifespan. 

#3. Repair, Replace, and Prepare 

Issues and underlying problems can easily go unnoticed for various lengths of time if homeowners aren’t aware of the problems. By installing our HomeHealth Assessment, you can stay on top of the potential problems and failures of your home’s heating and cooling system by simply logging onto our app. 

Sometimes, if the system is at a point of no return, you’ll have to replace it entirely. This can be costly but at least you know it’s going to work perfectly—we’re trying to think positively for you! Furthermore, the fall is a great time for upgrading since you’ll want your HVAC to work optimally during the cold, winter months. 

Schedule an Appointment

With all that said, schedule an appointment with us by contacting SAM or one of our professionals. Upon the arrival of fall, now is the time to be proactive regarding the health of your home. We want to see your systems running perfectly, therefore schedule an appointment with us at your convenience.
