Your HVAC works round the year. It cools your home in summer and heats it in winter to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. HVACs can develop problems over time. A malfunctioning HVAC fails to heat or cool properly or could stop working altogether.
A malfunctioning HVAC is an inconvenience. Not only will it fail to meet your household’s heating or cooling needs, it will use more energy than usual. An unaddressed problem can snowball into a major issue, and you might end up with a costly repair.
Why wait for HVAC issues to surface and then address them when you could stop them from occurring in the first place with preventive maintenance? Regular maintenance prevents problems before they occur and improves cooling and heating efficiency.
Periodic maintenance will add years to the service life of your HVAC. A well-maintained HVAC unit is less susceptible to breakdowns than a poorly maintained one.
HVAC air filters trap dust, dander, pollen, and other contaminants. Over time, they become clogged with these contaminants and should be replaced. Clogged filters can cause your HVAC to overheat. Dirty filters will force your system to work harder and longer, causing your electricity bill to shoot up.
Replace your air filters every 90 days. If you have pets, older adults, or kids at home, change your HVAC filters more frequently. Choose HEPA filters over the traditional ones.
Maintaining your HVAC’s outside unit is as important as caring for the indoor unit. Keep the area around the condenser free of any obstructions. Cut back foliage. Gently hose off the outdoor unit to prevent dirt, dust, and debris from accumulating. Repair or replace bent fins.
Have an HVAC company near you in Rohnert Park inspect and maintain your heating system before the heating season and your cooling system before the cooling season.
During a tune-up, your HVAC contractor will test different parts to see if they’re functioning properly. They will lubricate different HVAC components to reduce friction between them and repair or replace faulty parts. They will treat existing and potential problems, preventing them from occurring.
Our philosophy is simple, we always want to maintain equipment to give it the longest life possible. Next, we want to focus on repairing when something goes wrong. Then only as the last choice, we replace equipment when needed. That’s the John Owens Way.
