As the air becomes chilly again, we know winter is just around the corner. If you haven't used your heating system since last winter, you need to ensure that it is in good condition before the colder months settle in. With maintenance and preparation, you can rest knowing that your HVAC system will not break down when you need it the most.
Begin Preventative Maintenance
When winter hits, it could take days for a maintenance contractor to repair an HVAC system when it fails. Instead of waiting for a breakdown, a professional can come to your home in advance, inspect the heat pumps, and ensure that everything is working correctly. When you invest in preventative maintenance, you will have fewer bills, including lighter energy bills throughout winter. Some preventative maintenance that our professionals at Sun Mechanical can perform include:
There is a long list of maintenance that our team can perform to keep your system working efficiently throughout the winter.
Inspect the Filter
One of the first components that we check is the filter. Air filters become clogged with debris and dust, so you need to change them regularly so the air can cycle freely. If you have a clogged filter, the air may sound louder when you turn your system on.
Inspect and Clean Ducts
If you can't remember the last time you cleaned your ducts, you may need to have them cleaned as soon as possible. Over time, dust builds up inside the ducts and decreases airflow. We have the right tools to clean out your ducts and to ensure you have no leaks. If you have leaks, it can affect the efficiency of the system.
