Fall HVAC Maintenance

fall hvac maintenance

As the saying goes, “Time and tide wait for no one.” Whether you’re prepared or not, the summer months and warmer weather are gone, moving aside for fall and cooler temps. That means here in  you need to think about preparing your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system for fall maintenance.

Maintaining your heating and cooling equipment ensures it’ll run smoothly the way it should when you need it. Investing your time and money in these seasonal maintenance tasks goes a long way to protect both your Delaware home and your HVAC investment, including your wallet. Well-running systems are more energy efficient, so they end up costing you less to run all season long.

If you haven’t scheduled an annual heating tune-up yet, it’s a good idea to get it done before the chill sets in.

The Perks of Heating System Tune-Ups

This boiler or furnace tune-up will ensure that your system is operating safely at peak performance, giving you and your family unmatched peace of mind.
  • Longer Equipment Lifespan
    A tune-up every year will help your heating system last longer. Your boiler or furnace is a direct investment in your home: protect it!

  • Lower Your Risk of an Emergency 
    One annual visit from an HVAC professional can significantly reduce the likelihood of costly surprise breakdowns or furnace repairs. Sandri service technicians are trained to accurately diagnose, repair, and perform preventative maintenance to help avoid service calls in the future.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality
    Did you know that an annual heating system tune-up can improve the well-being of your family? Filter replacement and cleaning included in your tune-up will reduce the amount of common airborne allergens and pollutants that can cause asthma and allergies.
  • Book your heating tune-up before the autumn rush! 

Things you can do yourself:

  • Stock up and change your filters every three months, but if you have allergy issues, monthly is advised.
  • Make sure the registers are open and not blocked by curtains or furniture.
  • Vacuum your vents to keep them clear of dust, avoiding extra filter buildup or decreased indoor air quality (IAQ).

Things to ask your technician to do:

  • Perform a professional preventive maintenance on the units with the proper instruments to make sure that everything is in tip top condition.
  • Clean and check your heating system, including  all the connections, controls, sensors, drains, ignitor, ducts, pipes, burners, valves, motors and thermostat(s). and instruct you on anything you could do between your service visits.
