Heating And Cooling Systems Maintenance Affects Performance
Heating and cooling systems need to be properly maintained for optimal performance. Even the most advanced heat pump or air conditioner is subject to wear and tear. As with any other machine or piece of equipment, regular checks, timely tweaks and small repairs eliminate the stress of a sudden breakdown. You can also avoid replacement expenses.
As fall arrives, making sure that your heating system is ready for the coming season should be at the top of your list. Losing heat in the winter is not pleasant. In the case of commercial establishments, unplanned downtime could seriously affect business and profits.
So as you feel that nip in the air and colors start to change it’s time to give your system a test run.
Tips on maintaining heating and cooling systems
Check that it’s properly plugged in to the power source
If you use oil or propane see that your tank is topped up
For a gas or oil furnace check to see if the pilot light is on
Make sure all vents are clear and unobstructed (and your ducts are clean) so that the air and heat can flow freely
Change your air filter in a timely manner – heating and cooling systems have to work overtime when the filter is clogged and can break down
Turn the thermostat on (you may have to increase the setting a bit initially for the warm air to start flowing through)
Schedule seasonal maintainence by a licensed technician to ensure you have a comfortable and cozy winter
Consider updating your heat pump if it’s more than 13 years old; chances are that is not running at peak efficiency and is consuming too much energy
