When should you schedule your HVAC maintenance appointments? Is there a “best” time to have your HVAC equipment checked?
Many homeowners forget about their HVAC equipment until the first change in weather. When the temperatures change and they turn on the heating or cooling equipment for the first time, only to find it’s not operating the way it should, they reach out for service. That’s the busiest time of the year – you’re competing with everyone else in the same circumstance.
The smart homeowner is proactive in their HVAC maintenance routine. Instead of waiting for potential problems to surface, they reach out before the change in weather ever occurs.
For your air conditioner, that means calling in and scheduling an appointment in late winter or early spring. Because fewer people are scheduling maintenance appointments, you’ll have an easier time getting a technician at a time that works best for you. And if they do find something wrong, you have time to consider your options. You have more flexibility to ensure your equipment is in good working condition before you need it.
For your furnace, think early maintenance just as you did with your air conditioner. Denver’s weather is unpredictable at best. Yet we still know that the first dip in temperatures will likely come in September. You’ll turn on your furnace sometime in the months of September or October, so if you schedule your maintenance visit sometime in late summer or early fall, you’ll be prepared.
Calling in and scheduling maintenance visits twice a year means you’ll:
Save money – if your HVAC equipment isn’t operating correctly, it raises your energy bills each month. It can also lead to emergency visits from a HVAC technician, which will always be the most costly way to repair your system.
Avoid system failure – by calling a technician before you start up your HVAC equipment for the year, you’ll know ahead of time the condition of your equipment. You can repair or even replace on your time frame, instead of waiting for failure on the most extreme temperature days of the year.
