HVAC Maintenance

After a long, hot summer with your AC working in overdrive it’s time for a break. As we head into fall, remember to switch your AC off as with colder weather it is no longer needed. In addition to shutting it off, you should also have an inspection done. A pro can properly shut down your system, cover your exterior unit (if needed) to protect it from the elements, inspect and clean your ducts, as well as replace any filters. It’s important to have this done at the end of the season to prevent any issues come next spring and to ultimately improve your home efficiency.

In addition to shutting down your AC unit, you can hire a pro to ensure that your heating system is working properly and ready to go. Winter is right around the corner, so you don’t want to miss an opportunity to have your unit inspected before all of the pros get booked up. Book your appointment with an HVAC specialist today to have your AC and furnace serviced before fall.

If you have any small (or major) renovations you’re looking to get done, the fall is the perfect time.
