Want to avoid expensive heating and cooling repair bills? The best way to do this is to keep the Morton Grove HVAC system well maintained. Here are some tips that everyone can do to ensure they get reliable service from their systems year-round.
Keep the Filter Clean
All HVAC systems use a filter. Some use replaceable filters, and others have reusable filters that require cleaning. Regardless of the type, service technicians recommend replacing or cleaning the filter every thirty days.
A dirty filter doesn’t do indoor air quality any good, and it puts more strain on the HVAC system. When the system has to work harder, it uses more energy and is at an increased risk of overheating and breaking down. Fortunately, filter maintenance is easy and inexpensive, so there’s no excuse not to do it.
Make Scheduling Repairs a Priority
Many people ignore obvious signs of heating or cooling problems. These signs include strange operational noises, uneven heating or cooling, odd smells, and restricted airflow. Repairing small HVAC problems early on not only guarantees uninterrupted service, but it lowers repair costs.
Is money an issue? Many HVAC repair companies offer new customer specials that include discounts on repair services.
Purchase a Maintenance Agreement
Maintenance agreements help people stay on top of heating and cooling maintenance and include a professional inspection twice a year. Often, these agreements also included discounted labor and priority scheduling.
