Every homeowner in Avawam, Kentucky wants reliable heating and cooling, but no one wants to spend more than necessary on repairs and maintenance. Believe it or not, we’re right there with you. Here are a few tips to help cut your HVAC repair bills.
Change Your Air Filters
One of the most common causes of potentially serious HVAC problems is failure to change the air filter regularly. You need to change your filters at the beginning of the heating or cooling season and every one to three months during the season, depending on the type of filter. If your system has a reusable filter, wash it with water and let it air dry completely before you put it back in. Never wipe a filter dry, and never run the system without the filter.
While you’re changing or cleaning the filter, give your HVAC system a quick check. Is it clean? Is there any rust or corrosion around the wires? Do you hear any odd noises while it’s running? It’s best to call us while the problem is still small. Otherwise, you could be on the hook for more extensive repairs down the road.
Consider an Annual Service Agreement
HVAC systems, like all machines, can break down if they aren’t properly maintained. You can do some maintenance on your own, but for real peace of mind, you should strongly consider investing in our preventive maintenance plan. Spending a little on maintenance will save you a bundle on HVAC repair bills and extend the lifespan of your system.
Of course, even a well-maintained system can still have occasional trouble. When you need your HVAC system fixed, you need to make sure the job is done the right way. To learn more, check out our HVAC services call us today at (606) 436-0682.
