Spring has started, and you know what that means: before you know it, it will be summer. Is your home’s comfort system ready for another warm season? There’s one way to make certain—or as certain as you can be—and that’s to schedule a regular maintenance visit from a local, experienced heating and air conditioning contractor like Black Hills, Inc. Heating & Air Conditioning. We offer the maintenance agreements that can help you stay cool during the summer and then warm in the winter.Here are some of the reasons you should have a maintenance visit in spring:You didn’t schedule one for your heater in the fallLet’s start with the system that you won’t use as much this summer: your heater. You should schedule maintenance for your heater each fall before the winter starts. If your heater didn’t receive a maintenance session this previous fall, you should definitely have it inspected and tuned-up now so it’s ready for the cold weather. Don’t get too far behind on any maintenance… it will cause premature aging in the system.Take advantage of the springtime slowdownSpring brings mild, pleasant temperatures in Washington, and people often need neither their heater nor their air conditioner working for many days. This means that HVAC technicians have less crowded schedules and fewer emergency calls, so you will have an easy time making a convenient appointment for a maintenance visit. Once the hotter weather starts, air conditioning repair technicians will be much much busier.Avoid starting the summer with higher billsA year is enough time for any air conditioner to develop dust, dirt, and deterioration from aging, and that means more operating stress when it turns on. To keep away the high utility bills from an AC that has started to wear down, schedule a maintenance session that will clean, adjust, and tune-up the system to ideal working condition.Find that small malfunction before it becomes a big malfunctionA maintenance visit is the best way to discover if your air conditioning has a potential problem before you need the system working for you. A maintenance technician will give the AC a thorough inspection and spot anything that needs repairs. Not only will this prevent problems later, but the repairs will also probably cost less if caught earlier.You can get started with maintenance right away: call Black Hills, Inc. Heating & Air Conditioning and sign one of our maintenance agreements, which will deliver you an annual inspection and tune-up.
