With summer officially in the history books, it's only a matter of time before the sun begins setting earlier, and the temperatures begin to drop in Los Angeles and Ventura County. This makes it the perfect time to prepare for the winter, by ensuring that your heating/furnace (HVAC) system is functioning properly and ready to keep you warm this winter.
But if you find yourself wondering: Do I really need a furnace inspection? You're in good company.
Many people wonder if this type of furnace "checkup" is really necessary, and we're here to tell you, that much like you may not feel the need to go to the dentist every six months, or to have an annual physical from your physician, it's still a very good idea.
The reason? Identifying small problems before they become big problems, or pose a safety risk, is always in your best interest. After all, you're talking about the health and maintenance of your home - where you and your family spends most of your time, not to mention where you sleep.
To that end, our team of licensed, certified, award-winning technicians at First Choice Heating & Air Conditioning in Los Angeles, recommends that you schedule a fall furnace or heat pump tune to confirm that:
All components are clean
Filters are clean or changed
Thermostat is working properly
All connections are secure
Venting systems are working properly
Equipment is free of rust, soot, leaks
No electrical contacts or wires are corroded or frayed
Compressor and motors are working properly
Having a regular furnace check up each year before the cold weather hits can also benefit your wallet. Restricted airflow caused by malfunction of your heating system can result in decreased efficiency, and larger utility bills.
As an added bonus, a regular home heating (HVAC) system tune-up can also help you to feel good, knowing that you're doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint, by using as little energy as possible, and by maximizing the life of your home heating system.
In some cases, regular tune ups may also help protect your warranty.
Finally, a tune up can help identify any safety hazards, to safeguard you and your family.
