7 Reasons to Have an HVAC Tune-up in the Spring and Fall

7 Reasons to Have an HVAC Tune-up in the Spring and FallFall and Spring are the most popular times of the year because of the pleasant weather. Since it’s neither hot nor cold, you probably aren’t thinking about HVAC tune-ups. People commonly only schedule an HVAC tune-up if something isn’t right with their system, but Fall and Spring are the perfect times to have your HVAC system serviced.

What makes these seasons ideal for scheduling an HVAC tune-up? Let’s find out!

Why You Need HVAC Tune-Ups in Both Spring and Fall

Scheduling an HVAC tune-up in both the Spring and the Fall might seem like overkill, but it’s a great way to guard against expensive repairs. Consider the following 7 reasons you should schedule professional maintenance when the seasons change.

1. Reduce the possibility of breakdowns.

It’s not uncommon for your AC or heating system to develop problems and break down, meaning you’ll have to call an HVAC technician to come and fix the problem. Depending on the weather conditions you may be facing a few days or even weeks in a home that either feels frigid or like a desert. By scheduling a tune-up ahead of time you can identify possible issues that may be present in your HVAC system. That way you won’t have to worry about your system failing at an inconvenient time.

2. Guard against allergens.

If the air in your home feels uncomfortable or muggy then your HVAC system likely needs a tune-up or a repair. It could be that the filters haven’t been replaced in a while which can degrade your system’s air circulation. In any case, high humidity and excessive dust can lead to an increase in unwanted smells and respiratory problems.

3. Find and fix small problems (before they become big ones).

HVAC tune-ups help identify problems before they become something bothersome to you and your wallet. Finding and fixing small issues before they become big problems is always best.

4. Balance the humidity in your home.

As mentioned before, issues with air quality can lead to heavy humidity in your home year-round. This can be miserable because of the moisture in the air making things both sticky and hard to breathe.

5. Tune-up for safety.

Firing up your cooling or heating system after it hasn’t been used for a while can be potentially dangerous. Dust build-up and worn components can cause electrical problems in the components of the system. These problems can lead to power outages, breakdowns, and even fires.

6. Extend your HVAC system’s lifespan.

Regular maintenance of your HVAC system can extend the life of your unit. Seasonal check-ups keep the system in top working condition, reducing wear and tear over time.

7. Prepare for seasonal strain.

Having a professional look at your HVAC system before the winter and summer is a good way to prepare for seasonal strain. Weather is sometimes unpredictable and extreme temps may require heavy use of your HVAC system. Ensure that it will make it through the next few months with no problems by scheduling a tune-up.
