Fall Fun May Be Here, But Don't Tune Out Your Fall Tune Up! Here's Why
The days are getting shorter and each day the nights will get cooler. Before the fall chill sets in making you want to switch gears and turn on your heat, make sure that you have your heating system tuned up. With the cooler months only a few weeks away, it is always important to make sure you schedule a preventative maintenance for your HVAC. While an "out of sight- out of mind" mentality is all too common, not having your system checked out every year can create problems within your system and pose a safety hazard.
You wouldn't drive your car 100,000 miles and never take it in to change the oil or have the systems maintained and checked. That would be disastrous to our means of transportation. Same applies to our heating and cooling systems. Regular preventative maintenance provides a means for your service technician to go through a series of checks and balances, cleaning and inspection to assure safety. Without this regular cleaning, your system may have to work harder which can result in a break down. Without the safety inspection, your system may leak hazardous carbon monoxide into your home. Both of these scenarios are not good.

While fall is a great time of year when many enjoy the cool breezes through open windows, it is also the perfect time of year to schedule a much needed tune up! If a problem is found and any work is necessary, being without your HVAC system for a short time is not as much of an inconvenience during the mild fall weather. On the other hand, being without your much needed heat during the frigid winter months may be much more troublesome.
