Ah, we thank the heavens for you, our dear Southern September… Welcome back to the world, with your pleasantly brisk days and your charming night chill. What a relief the break can be from that oppressive, heavy heat that dominates so much of our summers, and yet it is a small break. Just around the corner lies winter, with its harsh cold, bitter winds, frosty nights, and the possibility of ice storms. While we enjoy this moment of respite, it is the perfect time to schedule a maintenance check on your home heating units.
Even though the consequences of spending the days of winter without proper heat are generally known and understood (shivering through the longest nights, your breath frosting in the air even in the house), many people still make the mistake of forgetting or just plain skipping the routine maintenance inspection for their heating units. Of course, this is right before the harshest cold fronts hit, right before the unit starts being left on constantly day after day, as you just hope it is able to stave off that creeping chill. And what are you to do if it breaks? If there is a problem with your unit, you want to know early, so that your family is able to prepare for it.
The easiest way to save money with an major appliance is to ensure that it is working at optimal levels at all times. A broken system is almost always going to be more difficult, and far more costly to repair. By having a qualified instructor fine-tooth-comb their way through your unit, you can deal immediately with issues. The problem is, a broken or malfunctioning piece of the system can adversely affect the unit as a whole, causing other areas to also be damaged as it breaks down. Finding problems as they begin, rather than after they have ended the functionality of your air conditioner, allows for cheaper fixes. It’s also worth noting that routine maintenance checks generally extend the life of a unit as well, meaning you get to wait longer before buying a brand new system. Any way you slice it, it is always going to be far less costly to schedule one proper tune-up or inspection prior to winter’s arrival.
