5 Reasons to Schedule an HVAC Inspection
Unless you’ve recently updated your HVAC system, it may not be at the forefront of your mind. Major appliances like your furnace, AC, and plumbing tend to take center stage, but your HVAC system plays a major role in keeping your home safe, clean, and feeling balanced.
At least once every two years, we recommend scheduling an HVAC inspection with your ARS / Rescue Rooter team. Not only do our inspections ensure that your system is working correctly, but it also provides a chance to ask us any questions about updates to your system that can make it run more efficiently. And in a time when low utility bills and a low carbon footprint are key, this simple tune-up can have a lasting effect on your lifestyle.
If you’re on the fence about setting up an HVAC inspection, here are five ways that this simple visit can change the way you experience your living space.
1. Purify Your Home’s Air
A home can be a difficult place for allergy sufferers, especially if you are affected by the effects of dust, mold, or pet dander. Even outdoor allergens like pollen and grass can seep into your home’s air HVAC system and reak havoc on your health.
During your inspection, we will ensure your ductwork, filters, and essential furnace or AC parts are clear from dust, dirt, and allergens. We can also upgrade your filtration system to further purify your home’s air.
2. Ensure Furnace and AC Safety
Safety is one of the first things that comes to mind when you think of an inspection. Our technicians will check both the electrical connections or in the case of a gas-powered heater, the combustion components of your system.
Common issues like a build-up of dirt and dust or a major weather event can affect the structure and safety of your major appliances. Your HVAC vents should properly connect with your heating and AC sources, circulate air safely throughout your home, and vent to the outdoors without disruption.
3. Lower Your Utility Bills
Oddly enough, a dirty or malfunctioning HVAC system can have an extreme effect on your utility bills over time. If your AC unit is not cooling, or if the warm or cool air traveling through the system is hindered by a malfunctioning part or slowed by dirt and dust, your AC and heating system may have to work harder to balance your home. By completing simple checks, cleaning, and repairs, you may find that your electric, oil, or gas bills are lower as a result.
4. Lower Your Repair Costs
At ARS / Rescue Rooter, we always prefer to catch problems with your many home systems before they turn into costly repairs or replacement. During your HVAC tune-up, we will inspect the wiring, ductwork, and other crucial components of your system as well as your AC and heating setups. We will also examine built-in safety measures that are set to kick in should anything go wrong during the upcoming season.
5. Discover Helpful Upgrades
If you’ve recently moved into a new home, you may have inherited the HVAC setup from the last owner. In some cases, the system no longer matches up with your AC and furnace, or even generally with your home design. This installation errors could lead to higher bills or a less comfortable home.
During our visit, we can recommend any cost-saving upgrades that maximize your peak output and energy efficiency. If it’s time for a system replacement, we can also help you take the first steps for making the right choice for your budget, home design, and vision for your home.
