Date Published: October 7, 2022

The need for air conditioners is slowly coming to an end as the temperatures in Staunton drop. The winter season can sneak up fast, and it is important to make sure your heating system is prepared. While enjoying the comfortable fall temperatures, we encourage you to schedule fall maintenance for your heating unit. In this blog, we will discuss the importance of fall maintenance and how it can benefit your home.

What Is Fall Maintenance?

Your HVAC system should be serviced twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. The fall allows an All-Temp technician to thoroughly inspect your heating system for any malfunctions before the winter begins. Below are a few procedures your technician will perform.

  • Change/clean air filters
  • Inspect ductwork
  • Confirm electrical connections
  • Check blower fans and motors
  • Lubricate moving parts

Your All-Temp technician will inspect and repair more aspects depending on the type of heating system your home has installed. We repair and service many different types of heating systems and are prepared for all scenarios. For a full checklist, give us a call!

Why Is Fall Maintenance Important?

The winter season brings a large workload for your heating unit and an underlying issue can result in a costly repair or breakdown. An All-Temp expert can identify any problems before they result in a bigger one. Fall maintenance can ensure your comfort remains during every winter activity and holiday.

What Are The Benefits Of Fall Maintenance?

Fall maintenance is a preventative service and provides many advantages to you, your home, and your heating system. Below are 6 benefits of scheduling regular fall maintenance.

  • Increased Energy Savings
  • Lower Utility Bills
  • Fewer Repairs
  • Extended Lifespan
  • Improved Safety
  • Enhanced Air Quality

Increased Energy Savings

Your heating unit may have an underlying issue causing it to overwork itself, which leads to more energy usage. Your All-Temp technician will inspect for any broken or obstructed components and repair accordingly. With heating maintenance, your unit will utilize less energy to heat your home and help the environment.

Lower Utility Bills

Overworked units use more energy to effectively heat your home, which raises energy costs. Scheduling preventative heating maintenance can increase efficiency and save you money on your monthly expenses. Simply put, the less energy your heating unit uses, the more you save on utility bills.

Fewer Repairs

The winter season brings many gatherings and activities. The last worry a homeowner should have is a heating unit breakdown. Fall maintenance can help ensure your heating system will require few repairs, which leaves residents in an uncomfortable breakdown.

Extended Lifespan

Heating units are a valuable and costly appliance that should be well taken care of. If your unit is not maintained, it will not heat your home for as long as possible. Maintaining regular maintenance twice a year for your HVAC system will help prolong its lifespan. A unit operating with broken parts can cause wear and tear and potentially break more components. The less repairs, the longer life your unit will live.

Improved Safety

In the cold Staunton temperatures, we rely on our heating system to keep our homes warm. Repairs are more likely without heating maintenance. A broken heating system in low temperatures can risk health and safety in your home. Additionally, if your unit is operating with an issue, it can risk a gas leak such as carbon monoxide.

Enhanced Air Quality

Low temperatures can increase the likelihood of getting sick, which is why indoor air quality is essential. Your All-Temp technician will inspect air filters and ducts for allergens and dust that could threaten air quality. Additionally, your technician will clean your unit due to dirt and debris settling in and around your heating system from not being used since last season.
